Scandinavian Film and Television on coursera

Ingmar Bergman with camera. He will be studied on the course, of course.

If you are interested in a more scholarly approach to Scandinavian Film and TV, Coursera is offering a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) from the University of Copenhagen that you might like to have a look at:

Scandinavian Film and Television

According to the course description:

In many ways Scandinavian film and television is a global cultural brand, connected with and exporting some of the cultural and social values connected to a liberal and progressive welfare society. This course deals with the social, institutional and cultural background of film and television in Scandinavia and in a broader European and global context.

I am going to do my best to have explore the materials available and look at some of the video lectures and course notes. I also hope to find some new to me Scandi Film and TV as there is a broad topic range over the ten weeks.

Week 9 is Scandinavian Television After 2000 so if you only want to read about Nordic Noir, you’ll have to wait until then.

Are you taking part in the course? Anything you have learned and would like to share? Or any amazing Scandinavian films or series you’ve discovered thanks to it?
