Course Description

IN PERSON: This is a fun course that presents films about North Carolina and its people, history and culture. We’ll be looking at certain Hollywood movies set in our state as well as a few nonfiction films. They range from silent rarities and Appalachian romances to tobacco documentaries and films about true crime, stock car racin’ and everyday people. This course should be especially interesting to those who either are new to North Carolina or haven’t had the opportunity to explore the state outside the Triangle. Each week we will focus on a specific topic or filmmaker, with some introductory material followed by a live group showing of a film (and, occasionally, more than one film) and subsequent discussion. Class sessions will last up to three hours to allow ample time to watch and express opinions about the feature films. No outside reading is required, but students may need to learn the difference between eastern and western North Carolina barbecue. | Lecture + Q&A, Facilitated discussion.

Max enrollment: 30.

Location: Judea Reform Congregation, 1933 W. Cornwallis Rd, Durham NC 27705
