Description

This course examines the history of film from its origins through the emergence of the French New Wave. Along the way we will explore the formation of the classical Hollywood system and the transition to sound in the ‘20s and ‘30s, the rise of propaganda media during the Second World War, and the challenges faced by the studios with the rising popularity of television in the 1950s. Expanding our focus, we will also pay close attention to the global art film phenomenon, the international avant-garde, and commercial filmmaking in the nonwestern world. Throughout the class, we’ll utilize a variety of methodological frames – aesthetic, industrial, technological, cultural -- to expand the ways we think about film historically.

Course Requirements:

Students will be assessed based on reading quizzes, participation, 2 papers, and 2 exams.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates interested in film history and FTVM majors.

Class Format:

The course will meet twice per week for one-hour lectures, a 2-3 hour lab for viewing movies, and a one-hour discussion section.
