Film Theory: Cinema/The City

Subject Name: 
Film Studies
Course Number: 
Mount Holyoke College
This course offers an historical survey of film theory, from the work of its earliest authors and practitioners at the birth of the 20th century (who first struggled to define the medium), to those who are working still to elucidate the place of the cinema in relation to new media in its ever-evolving and ever more complex place in culture. As a way of focusing the discussion of the various theoretical positions, we will watch and discuss films that represent that most modern of phenomena--the city.
Prereq: Film Studies 201, Film Studies 202, or Film Studies 203.

2 meetings (75 minutes), 1 screening (1.5 hours)
