To receive credit for this discussion, post a 250-word-ish response to the following prompt by Monday, March 26th.
Your assignment for this week is to see F.W. Murnau’s classic Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans. As you’ll see, the film is about the threat posed to a farmer and his wife by the arrival of a woman from the city. And while the majority of the film deals with the farmer and his wife’s reconciliation, the film also has a lot to say about cities, urban space, and the kinds of people who populate developed areas. Using one or more scenes, use specific details to articulate the film’s attitude/position toward the city (you might also compare the city’s depiction to that of the country).
