How do moving images transform and affect the way we think? Do screens function as an interface between us and the world, or become a window through which we see? An introduction to film studies that seeks to engage students with visual thinking and critical analysis. This course will provide students the opportunity to develop their skills in perception, comprehension, and interpretation of film and visual texts. Emphasis will be placed on the films themselves, engaging in intensive analysis and discussion of formal components. The goal of this course is to cultivate students’ ability to translate their informed understanding of films into oral and written expression. Films discussed include works from Hitchcock, Varda, Kubrick, Lynch, and Tarantino.
