Ed. Note: 'The Story of Film: An Odyssey'

Ed. Note: Starting this week, Bijou Backlight publisher James Parrish has begun teaching an Introduction to World Cinema course at VCU. For this semester Parrish is using Mark Cousins' "The Story of Film: An Odyssey" as the syllabus for the class.

This 15-hour series, which played at MoMA and the Walker Art Museum, among others, is currently streaming on Netflix (each episode is about an hour long). For background, click here to read Peter Schilling’s interview with Cousins.

James says, “If you'd like to join in this cinematic odyssey through world cinema, watch one episode each week for 15 weeks and weigh in [on the Bijou Backlight’s Facebook page] the next day.”

Watched the first chapter last night and enjoyed it. So, OK, I’m in. How about you? Click here to visit the Bijou Backlight's Facebook page.
