ARTH 3921W: Art of the Film

4 CreditsArts/HumanitiesWriting Intensive

This course will engage with the history of film as an art form through a selection of significant movements, styles, filmmakers, institutions, and, of course, individual films from around the world. While this will not be a comprehensive study, it will address both mainstream, commercial films as well as oppositional, experimental, underground, and otherwise challenging works. Some of the wide-ranging selection of films we will watch and discuss: Germaine Dulac’s La Coquille et le Clergyman (The Seashell and the Clergyman) (1922), Gillo Pontecorvo’s The Battle of Algiers (1966), Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust (1991), and Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma (2018).
