63. MEDST 240: Styles of Cinema

Contact:Amy Herzog
Authors:Amy Herzog
Richard Maxwell
Abstract:The purpose of this course is to train students in the systematic close
readings of film texts. The central question the class will explore is: what
is the relationship between film form, the elements of cinematic style, and
film content, the themes, motifs and structure of cinematic narrative. The
course is divided into two parts. The first portion of the class will introduce
students to basic film grammar and components of film style while the second
will explore the political and cultural ramifications of film practice using
the issue of stylistic deviations from Classical Hollywood storytelling as a
point of departure. Students will also develop critical writing skills through
close analysis of films.
