Reflexivity in the Cinema

Subject Name: 
Film Studies
Course Number: 
Mount Holyoke College
Some of the most compelling films in the history of the moving image have been those that make the viewer aware of the processes of their own production. Breaking away from the tradition of what Robert Stam calls the "art of enchantment," they call attention to themselves for reasons that range from the playful to the philosophical to the political. Some of the directors whom we will consider include: Chantal Akerman, Wes Anderson, Julie Dash, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard, William Greaves, Buster Keaton, Spike Lee, David Lynch, Fanta Régina Nacro, and Preston Sturges.
Prereq: 8 credits in Film Studies including FLMST-201, FLMST-202, or FLMST-203.
Instructor Permission: 
Permission is required for interchange registration during the add/drop period only.
