Winter 2021 Poster

Take a look at our new poster for the Winter 2021 semester! This semester's color palette was chosen through popular vote on our social media stories.

Dr. Dennis Perry sets up Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho (1960) so that viewers can watch the movie as Hitchcock intended, spoiler-free. The distribution of this film changed how people attend the cinema, as its twists and turns are best appreciated with as little prior knowledge as possible. Dr. Perry split the lecture into two parts, with the later to be watched after viewing the film.

Wednesday Jan. 20 - Saturday Jan. 23

Los olvidados

Often considered Mexico’s most important film, Los olvidados by exiled Spanish director Luis Buñuel created a stir when it first appeared. Centered on a group of juvenile delinquents, the film contradicts the view of many Mexican filmmakers and artists—including Diego Rivera—of a nation on the rise.
Spanish. 1950. Luis Buñuel. 80 min.

Winter 2021 Semester

How to Stream

Each week this semester, IC will offer several feature films and documentaries online through our Hummedia collection. However, IC streaming will only be available to current BYU students, faculty, and staff. These individuals will need to sign up here using their NetID.

Those who signed up last semester will not have to sign up again. Students who need to watch IC films for their classes should sign up as soon as possible, as authentication for each NetID requires human intervention and therefore takes time.

International Cinema Studies Minor

The minor in International Cinema Studies is for students who love visual media and want to develop skills in critical analysis, writing, and interpretation along with knowledge about cinema theory, history, and diverse cultures. The ICS minor is a great addition to a major in the Humanities for a media-oriented student as it allows for a deeper focus on cinema, media studies, and international contexts than most majors are able to support. It is also a great addition for majors from outside the college of Humanities who need their cinema fix and something to help them round out their education with course work that will make them better communicators, writers, and thinkers.
