Surrealism in Cinema

Spring 2023

Taught By: Rebecca Alvin

Section: A

CRN: 3645

Credits: 3

The surrealist movement in art reached its peak during the early years of filmmaking. Surrealists like Salvador Dali and Germaine Dulac saw cinema as an excellent means of exposing a mass audience to their ideas. The films that resulted from this movement are still striking today for their complexity, atypical humor, and attack on the senses. Several recent filmmakers also bring surrealist sensibilities to their work. This course looks at the work of surrealist filmmakers past and present, including Luis Buñuel, David Lynch, Germaine Dulac, and Alexandro Jodorowsky. Students are required to view films on video outside of class; the instructor will help students locate hard-to-find films.
