[Track S] The goal of this course is to deepen your appreciation of the history of cinema and to explore possible ways of thinking about films. By analyzing influential films from the cinematic canon, as well as theoretical approaches that have been brought to bear on that canon, we will explore the complex relationship between the moving image and critical thought. The course will survey/include the main historical periods and movements from film history, silent cinema, the classical Hollywood film, Italian Neo-realism, the French New Wave, and American Independent Cinema. The course will also cover some of the major film genres, key films from various national cinemas, and select auteurs from the history of cinema. Students must register for the lecture, film screening section (LCST 2124), and discussion section of this course (LCST 2123). [Track S]
