Syllabus Description:

Co-taught by Eric Ames and Andy Nestingen, this course will give you a set of tools for exploring the cinema from various perspectives. Directors to be discussed include such notables as Ingmar Bergman, Carl Dreyer, and Lars von Trier; films include Nanook of the North, Sami Blood, Let the Right One In, The Killing (the Danish TV series), The Black Power Mixtape, and The Square. Rather than focus on a particular genre, country, period, or filmmaker, we will explore a diversity of materials, with three main objectives:

  • To learn a set of key terms for the study of film and television;
  • To gain an understanding of film and television as cultural productions;
  • To learn how to do a frame and sequence analysis.
