The Midterm will be on Tuesday the 29th in class. We did a formal review session in the last class, so I won’t repeat all of that, but here are some things to consider.
For Thursday, we’ll take a turn into filmic representations of the city and city life from an immigrant’s perspective with a screening of director David Riker’s 1998 film La Ciudad/(The City). we’ll watch the first half of La Ciudad on Thursday. Prepare to take good notes, as there will be a writing assignment on it and it will appear on the final exam. For people following online, though apparently out of print, the film’s available on Netflix and at the NY Public Library if you’re in the NYC area. Read this short review and one from the New York Times of the film.
