Cinema: Concept and Form

Cinema: Concept and Form

In this course, we will introduce foundational concepts and forms of cinema, cutting across time, space, and genre. We’ll see and discuss ‘Westerns’, film noir, verite and neo-realism, documentary, the experimental and avant-garde, as well as contemporary art installations of moving images. Our discussions will traverse geography - America, the Soviet Union, Europe, South Asia, the Middle East and North Africa - method - structuralist, post-structuralist, and psychoanalytic - as well as history - the long 20th century. We’ll also pay mind to techniques of making and viewing film.
