Through the medium of film, this subject examines the history and contemporary trends of Israeli cinema as they reflect both social and cultural issues in the country. By screening Israeli films, the course aims to introduce students to this genre that reflects many aspects of political and social life in Israel, including the difficulties and conflicts within this society. An introductory lecture will precede each viewing and following the film a discussion will be held regarding the content of the film and the issues it raises. Some of the themes for discussion include the individual, gender, ethnicity, Israeli Arab relations, Holocaust representations, masculinity, the Israeli ethos of collectivism and unity in the pioneer community and the army, the re-evaluation of national myths in the 1970s and the 1990s, coming of age, the desire for peace during the Rabin era and following his assassination.
