This course considers primarily the world of cinema outside of Hollywood and secondarily American films outside the system or its commercial norms. Representative films to be considered are chosen for diversity in film-making, cultural meaning and reception. Some of the films will have been great critical and/or commercial success abroad, but hardly attracted notice in North America (whether because of language/cultural barriers or other reasons). Some films may be considered classics in their respective culture or genre, others are seen as working against conventions. The writing assignments will focus on critical analysis as a distinctive through parallel art form to literature. Consideration will also be given to the history of photography and film, and to the influence of those new technologies upon literature in the 19th and early 20th centuries. This course fulfills the core curriculum literature requirement in the Humanities. Note: Course will be canceled if there are fewer than six (6) paid students enrolled as of Monday, May 5. Limit 32
