3 CreditsHonors

“Film as Art” offers a selective overview of the most influential Non-Anglo-American “film authors” in post WWII art film history: Federico Fellini, Luchinothe Visconti, Roberto Rossellini, Michelangelo Antonioni, Vittorio De Sica, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Bernardo Bertolucci, Giuseppe Tornatore (Italy); François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Alain Resnais, Claude Chabrol, Costa-Gavras (France); Ingmar Bergman (Sweden); Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Werner Herzog, Volker Schlöndorff, Wim Wenders (Germany); Andrei Tarkovsky (Russia); Luis Buñuel, Pedro Almodovar (Spain); Krzysztof Kieslowski (Poland); Theodoros Angelopoulos (Greece); Abbas Kiarostami (Iran); Yasujirō Ozu, Shindō Kaneto, Akira Kurosawa (Japan); and Hou Hsiao-hsien (Taiwan). Throughout the course, we will learn the definitions of “art film” and “film author”, filmmaking as high art practice, major art film movements in the world: Italian New-Realism, French New Wave, New German Cinema, New Taiwanese Cinema, etc. and their influence on the American filmmaking. We will develop a historical appreciation of art film based on cinematic traditions contained within narrative, documentary, and experimental forms, and acquire a critical, technical, and aesthetic vocabulary relating to particular filmmakers. In particular, we will examine and evaluate the importance of genre and the legacy of individual “auteurs” throughout the history of post-war cinema. We will study the individuality of the filmmakers and their contribution to our understandings of politics, society, and human relationship.
