International Cinema

Description

An introduction to the study of film through a survey of international fiction films. Students learn how to describe and appreciate the formal elements of film-narrative, mise-en-scène, cinematography, editing, and sound. Films are drawn from a broad historical period (1950 to the present) and from an equally wide range of genres (thriller, horror, science fiction) and countries of origin. Art cinema (more artistic, less commercial) receives special emphasis.
