Syllabus Description:

Modernism and Cinema

This course will explore various definitions and elaborations of modernism in twentieth century art and thought, focusing on how trends in world cinema (beginning in the early 1960s) reflect and develop ideas present in other artistic media and philosophical works from the early 1900s onwards. Works by filmmakers such as Alain Resnais, Federico Fellini, Jean-Luc Godard, Hou Hsiao-Hsien, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul (among others) will be studied alongside ideas and movements like Dada, Surrealism, the "New Novel", Psycho-analysis, the Theatre of Cruelty, and Postmodernism. Students will develop an historical understanding of aesthetics and the relation of artworks to ethical and political ideas in the 20th century and beyond.
