Kieslowski Meets Ozu

Subject Name: 

Humanities Arts Cultural Stu

Course Number: 
Hampshire College
Considered by many two of the most influential filmmakers working in the mid and late twentieth century, the course will survey the work of Krzysztof Kieslowski and Yasujiro Ozu, analyze the poetics of their respective cinema, discuss overlapping themes, and explore the cultural influences that informed both filmmakers. Ozu's "shomin geki" genre repeatedly conveyed the complexities of filial relationships within middle class families in pre and post WWII Japanese society. In turn, many of Kieslowski's films portrayed the psychological and emotional lives of Post WWII, Polish society. This will be a cinema studies course with the option for some students to create their own film project.
