Some more testimonials from our 2021 Film History Class, our second year of zoom teaching...
I really like teaching. Honestly. It is fun. You have to hook students in, the way you do a whole lot of (older and wiser) people. But then you get them and say: well, in order to speak about this, I first have to talk about that. And so it begins. Film history becomes less linear. ideally really overlapping and messy, full of detours we forgot, futures we ignored, and people we failed to see. Voilà.
