  • Noncredit

This course is offered through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Colorado State University. You must be a member of Osher to enroll in this course.

Movies, like any other cultural product, bear the imprint of traditions, values, ways of life, psychologies, and can, thus, provide a unique venue for approaching cultural phenomena.

In this course we’ll examine twentieth century Russian cultural history as it is reflected in the art of cinema. We’ll look not only at the historical periods but also at the cultural trends, connection between the culture and officialdom, peculiarities of national self-perception and artistic realities in Russian films.

Noncredit courses do not produce academic credit nor appear on a Colorado State University academic transcript.
