|FIL2400 - History of the American Cinema
Week 10 - The Film School Generation
In the 1960s and 1970s, a pack of brash young mavericks - Coppola, Scorsese, Spielberg, and others - tried to revolutionize the way American films were made and appreciated. This segment explores the financial and cultural forces that made their success possible; the influence of classical Hollywood genres, new technology, and the French New Wave on their work; and their continuing evolution as idiosyncratic film makers with commercial clout.
