FILM 2100 01 - History and Theory of Film
This course will explore major developments in film history, theory and criticism. Students will become familiar with several different film movements in the development of the art form and will be introduced to basic ideas in film theory. Through a variety of film movements and historical periods, students will develop an understanding of the cultural, industrial, and political contexts for some of the most significant debates about film. Specific topics covered will include Russian formalism, the history of classic Hollywood cinema, the French new wave, recent global cinemas, as well as alternatives to Hollywood in the United States. Class time will be divided between the discussion of the historical movements and critical texts and the application of those texts to a primary cinematic text. Students will be evaluated on the basis of weekly postings, participation in discussion, essay exams and formal writing opportunities.
