Yale Film Watchlist

I'll be starting a PhD in Art History and Film and Media Studies at Yale University in the fall! They have an essential films list for grad students to watch during our time here - these are the films I've yet to see on the list. Full list: filmstudies.yale.edu/graduate/foundations-field-required-texts-and-films/required-filmography-yale-graduate-students

  • Before the Nickelodeon: The Cinema of Edwin S. Porter
  • A Time to Live, a Time to Die
  • When Father Was Away on Business
  • Yeelen
