Description: How do fiction films portray the environment, how faithful are these cultural representations to environmental issues, and how does this affect people’s perception of the environment and environmental issues? In this class, students will watch environmental fiction movies spanning from the 1990’s to present day and will learn what fiction films get right and wrong about environmental issues. Students will participate in class discussion on how fiction films have shaped their own and society’s perception of the environment. Lectures and scholarly articles on environmental issues will be used to help shape students’ understanding of the reality of the environment. Students will complete a final project in which they present on a fiction film of their choice.
