With so many courses to choose from, you may have missed these FILM course options:
FILM 3R90: Sound & Vision: the Rockumentary
This course focuses on a single genre that has been a mainstay of documentary filmmaking for nearly 60 years now: the “Rockumentary.” The genre’s nickname is in many ways a misnomer, one based on the fact that “rock” rhymes better with “doc,” than, say, jazz, folk, or soul, or any one of a number of other musical genres that have been the subject of the popular music documentary since its inception around 1960.
In this course, we’ll be studying films that concern themselves with a wide variety of musical genres, from jazz, to folk, to soul, to rock, to punk, post-punk, heavy metal, hip-hop, R & B, and beyond. And the rockumentary has not only addressed and represented a great variety of musical styles and cultures — at its best, it has also been a highly creative and dynamic documentary genre, one that has frequently been on the cutting edge of documentary representation. It’s also been ambitious, tackling all kinds of timely issues: counterculture, sexuality, race, gender, the generation gap, subculture, moral panics, drugs, class warfare, taste, digital culture, etc. This course has it all.
