This course will examine how by adopting a youth's point of view, the filmmaker privileges their approach to constructing a filmic narrative. A number of overlapping themes will be examined through a selection of films from American, European and world cinema. Among the topics to be considered are: a child's view of war, defender of the community, coming of age, confrontation with authority and 'the Other', economic hardship, impact of marital break-up and single-parent families, separation anxiety, and survival.
