ENGL 11A: Films Around the Globe

Films Around the Globe

How to Use this Guide

Welcome!  Use this LibGuide in your Films Around the Globe C&I course to help you:


  • Find detailed biographical information about film directors 
  • Locate articles and materials discussing the film's reception
  • Establish films in their historical, cultural, and social contexts

I also recommend exploring "How to Learn with the Library" (to the left) to get familiar with all of our services and resources available free to you as a student.
