New Resources: Kanopy

Written by Hayley Bricker, UCLA Science Libraries Research Assistant  

If you’re a fan of Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime, you might want to check out UCLA’s new subscription to Kanopy.com, a streaming service that seeks to highlight thoughtful pieces of film. Kanopy specifically caters to the international film scene, offering documentaries, dramas, and limited run specials.

Available films include Fritz Lang’s genre-defining Metropolis, the unequivocal Loving Vincent composed of individual oil painting frames, Christopher Nolan’s defining Memento, the Korean noir Oldboy, the Iranian vampire tale A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night, and any of the Great Courses visual lessons.  

Kanopy is great for those interested in independent, lowly-circulated, or simply underrated films that do not make it to the mainstream circuit. It’s a great addition to the suite of online streaming services already supported in full or in part by UCLA.  

Kanopy is available to current UCLA students, staff, and faculty.
