Osher Institute: Movies that Changed the World
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute offers noncredit enrichment courses and events in accessible and innovative learning environments throughout northeastern Kansas and Greater Kansas City.
Movies that Changed the World
This course will review a selection of motion pictures that have forever transformed our world. Some of them, like The Birth of a Nation (1915), threw a racist bomb into contemporary politics; others,like Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey and Fritz Lang's Metropolis, expanded our vision ofthe future. Still others, like the work of Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney, used comedy and animation to deliver satiric jabs at our popular culture.
