From the nostalgia film to the Holocaust documentary, cinema is implicated in complex processes of forgetting and remembering. This unit introduces students to thinking about how film represents memory formally and narratively, and its thematic, cultural and ethical implications. It traces film's relation to nostalgia and history, while approaching cinema more broadly as an archive of memory, especially of those ephemeral or affective experiences not often thought of as historical.
