This course offers an introduction to the language and practice of
formal film analysis. Each week we will explore a different element of
film form and analyze the ways in which it shapes the moving image.This course invites students to think about formal elements
within and across a wide range of genres, styles, historical moments,
and national contexts. By the end of this course, the successful FS1006
student will be able to recognize and communicate the
ways in which meaning is made in cinema.
