Arbeitsbuch zu German Culture through Film by Robert C. Reimer and Reinhard Zachau - the German version of the English text - 'German culture through film' for higher level classes. This is a two book series. The first text, in English, covers the wide range of German films. The second text covers a selection of the same films with emphasis on German language skills. Two texts, one covering 31 German films in English; the other, 12 of those in German. Thus, one or both can be used for courses in German film in English, courses in German film in German, or courses which for various reasons might cater to students taking either track simultaneously in the same course. The series is designed to appeal to professors who teach courses in general education, liberal arts, cinema, or who conduct a course in German film exclusively in German, or for where students share the same class (and films) for those two different courses.
