Promoting Europe: From Films and Newsreels to Streaming Media, 1945-2020
April 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
After Brexit and in the middle of pandemic borders being raised, this presentation offers a historic review of the moving images of the European Project. Even as the German troops were withdrawing from occupied countries, the resistance started to produce newsreels, and this postwar media presented Europe as a project of hope for the future. This presentation will review the history of the moving images of Europe from those early postwar days to the present. It will rely on clips to provide the audience a chance to see for themselves.
The event speaker, Randall Halle is the Klaus W. Jonas Professor of German Film and Cultural Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also Director of the Film and Media Studies Program.
