History of African, Asian, and Latin American Film
Summer 2022 - I took this class to satisfy a DARS requirement and it was the best class to take during the summer. The work load revolved around watching 2 films each week, writing a paragraph detailing features you liked for each film watched, posting 6 discussion points, and writing 3 papers (2pgs each). Although this may seem like a lot, it was very manageable. Professor Carreras was always available through email and very understanding of any setback. Definitely recommend this class as it's just watching movies that are very interesting.
Spring 2019 - Let me save you ten weeks of your life. Don't take it. Nope. Don't. This was the most disorganized class I've taken at UCLA and it's unfortunate because this class had the potential to be great. The professor was less than competent to teach, even though he clearly has the knowledge. The TAs run the class because the professor is clueless as to what is happening with the course. You will wish you were anywhere else than in that lecture... The class has 3 papers and a final exam. Readings every week posted on CCLE. Pick a different film class, this one just isn't worth your time.
