The Indie Cinema Revolution: American Movies in the '90s

Campus contacts

1990 to 1999 was an exciting time for independent filmmakers. Hollywood finally invited young directors to join their party, resulting in a tidal wave of revolutionary new films. We'll watch these movies and learn the secrets of this decade.

The ten years from 1990 to 1999 was a banner year for American independent filmmakers. This 10-year period brought forth more independently-produced films than any other time. (Excluding 1967 to 1975) Unique films such as Do the Right Thing, Reservoir Dogs, American History X, Rushmore, Being John Malkovich, Memento, Pulp Fiction and Three Kings were produced in the '90s. In this class we'll watch films such as these and uncover the mystery of this prolific decade. New technologies and emerging filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino and Spike Lee led the way for many other emerging filmmakers. Arrangements for viewing the films will be through a private secure streaming service. There are no additional costs for accessing the films.
