Cinema As Art: From Melies To MalickLLLL 1000$30
An exploration of cinema as an art form, as seen through milestones in the history and development of the motion picture, from its origins in the late 19th century to the present. Each session will be a combination of lecture and video presentation, using representative scenes and clips from a multitude of movies, primarily through DVD’s and YouTube. Numerous printed handouts will be distributed. Special topics to be covered include Expressionism, film noir, techniques of frame composition, the development of the aspect ratio, color, silence and sound, music, editing, montage, tracking, image vs. word, literary adaptation, art film, foreign film, experimental film, etc. The focus of the course is film as art. Though certain techniques and technological developments will be discussed, analyzed, and shown via cinematic examples, this is not a technical course. Similarly, although the course is roughly chronological and milestones of film history will be cited, it is not, strictly speaking, a historical survey course either. Nor does it concern film theory, politics, economics, subtexts, nor even content itself except incidentally. Nor does it treat of the film industry as entertainment or business.
