The second half of a film history sequence at the second year level, Cinema & Revolution focuses on crucial moments, concepts and cinematic works from the period between 1945 and the present. Students will be marked according to a mid-term essay, a final exam, short assignments on Blackboard, and participation and attendance in lectures and tutorials.
|Session||Second Sub Session||Credit Points||30 credits (15 ECTS credits)|
Each week explores a different historical moment and a set of key film-theoretical concepts. Students will acquire not only a knowledge of these specific historical sites, but also a facility with critical and comparative thinking. The course aims to teach the students how to move between film practice, film history, and film theory to analyze the ways in which the moving image makes meaning. We will treat film as a product of the industrial age, as an element of urban culture, and as a means of imaginary transportation.
