How do modern and traditional elements coexist in centuries-old countries? What kind of similarities and differences exist in French and Japanese societies? How have their histories and cultures been intertwined? What kind of links existed between Paris and Tokyo, for example? Join us as we continue to examine films and other media to compare and contrast aesthetic sensibilities, customs and codes of conduct from an insider's viewpoint. Students will gain knowledge of French and Japanese history, and will be introduced to the basic elements of both languages as we look at their roles in the expressions of culture.
