Exploring Urban Anthropology though city films” is a film course of documentaries and fiction films on the city starting from the city symphonies of the 1920s to the video diaries of Jonas Mekas in New York and Slow Cinema by James Benning in LA. Urban anthropology has fascinated journalists, photographers and policy makers with the emergence of the Chicago School since the 1920s. Ethnography and long-term research facilitated deeper insights into the everyday lives of urban neighbourhoods that were often associated with violence, crime and housing problems. Cinema and photography have also since their inception engaged with the urban, and their development is deeply entwined with that of the modern metropolis. We are interested in films, photography, and writings that look at modernity, subcultures, non- western cities, regeneration, urban elites, domestic space, social movements and urban architecture. In this course we will discuss films, photography and writings on the subject.
