Course Description

Espionage has long been a Hollywood staple and this includes films based on true events. Examine both the true events behind films such as Bridge of Spies, Munich and Fair Game, among others, and the ‘Hollywood’ version of those events. For example, the Colossus machine which featured prominently in 'the Imitation Game' was actually used to break the codes from the German Lorenz machine and not Enigma. We will watch a movie every second week. The week prior to viewing we will discuss espionage during the time period in question as well as the event depicted in the film. Learn not only how and why filmmakers sometimes alter reality, but also the significance of these alterations to our understanding of history.
