DMS 212FHI Film History Intensive

Shilina-Conte :: Online

This intensive course in Film History will expose students to screenings and scholarship chronicling the political, social and technological conditions of film production from the 1890’s to the present. We will examine early motion pictures, pre-code Hollywood, German Expressionism, French Impressionism and Surrealism, Soviet Montage, Neorealism, the French New Wave, Post-colonial filmmaking, 1970’s Hollywood, as well as digital and large-format filmmaking. Since the course will be taught online, students will be expected either to be Netflix subscribers or rent / purchase the films we’ll be analyzing in this class.
