Credits: 4

[Track S] The course addresses some of the philosophical issues related to contemporary cinema: how we know what we know (epistemology), what is perception (mediated through technology/mediated through the body), and how do we distinguish between the actual and the virtual (ontology) - issues and topics that have arisen in the post-photographic era of cinema. At the same time as the course will educate students about how to unravel complex narrative structures, it alerts them to the formal devices that certain films use in order to create the instability of reference and the uncertainty of reality status that makes the so-called mind-game films so popular as well as symptomatic.
