I feel like I learned a lot about Brazil through this class. It was very easy in terms of the content since we just watched movies, did a few readings, and wrote reviews about them. The class was very intersectional as it incorporated commentary on race, gender, sexuality, economic/social status, place of origin etc. Some films featured nudity, but the films were very entertaining. the textbook is free and available as a PDF through CCLE. The class was asynchronous online and we had optional 1 hour discussions on Wednesdays. These discussions allow you to interact with your classmates and Kristal in order to discuss the films and readings for that week. She also made lecture videos in which she discussed the movies and readings in depth in terms of that previously mentioned intersectionality. She followed everything that was on the syllabus and was always aware of the current situation facing out country/state at the moment, taking that into account in order to reduce the workload. The group presentation was probably the hardest assignment since you have to work around your other group members, which is harder to do online but it was nonetheless easy. You also self grade yourself for that presentation as well as for other "big" assignments that are relatively easy. You even self grade yourself for the class. This is by far the best class I have taken.
