What kind of customs and beliefs are expressed in films and other media? Are there embedded aesthetic sensibilities and codes of conduct in social interactions? What kind of similarities and differences exist in French and Japanese societies? Join us as we use the lens of film to study relationships among individuals, gender, and social groups.
