HIST 100 College of San Mateo What Is Civilization Discussion

This is a “reflection” piece. Please do not look up a definition online. Different disciplines and even different groups and individuals argue about the definition of “civilization.” Please submit your half-page response to the question “What is Civilization?” here. Then move on to “Part II”–the special film.

For your next post I would like you to write a one-half page (or more) answering this question: What is “civilization?” There is no real wrong answer, but please think “deep!” This is a lead-in to a special film that I will assign tomorrow. It will be a great way to pair critical thinking with your readings and chapter work on ancient civilizations. It’s a classic film that is almost entirely an aural and visual “experience.” There will be a minimal cost of about $3.99. Please consider finding a place (your house, friend’s house, relative’s house) where you can watch it on a big screen–the cinematography and sound is famous. If you can find a place where you can watch it on a big screen TV you will benefit much more than watching it on a computer. More on the film tomorrow;

Instructions for this assignment (same as in announcement):

As we discussed in class I have found a way for you to access the “special film” without a streaming subscription. The film is titled: “Koyaanisquatsi.” You can rent it for $3.99 on Amazon Prime, Vudu, and ITunes. Tubi and Pluto have advertisements so they are not a good choice. For Apple TV/Itunes you can go to this site (DO NOT READ THE TAG LINE–SPOILER ALERT):

https://tv.apple.com/us/movie/koyaanisqatsi/umc.cmc.70bfy8k8q2ckyumezpepo2bir?action=play (Links to an external site.)

You then click on Watch on Apple TV” and create an account with an email address and password. You do not have to subscribe to Apple TV. Then you can rent the film.

Your task is to pair this with our discussions on the concept of “civilization,” and your reflection post. At the end of the film you will see a direct translation of the title/chant, plus the other Hopi chants. However, your post should include not only this but also what impact it had on you in light of the question, “What is ‘civilization.'” Remember, it is a visual and aural “experiential” film and the creator (Godfrey Reggio)wanted you to bring meaning to the film. Do not google the film for the “meaning!” Just sit back and absorb the sound and visuals and “think creatively!”

Note: the film score is by the famous American modernist composer Philip Glass.
