Language of Film

This theory-based study in the languages of film, American and international, concerns the ways films signify. Emphasizing the crafting of films more than any particular thematic content, it explores mise-en-scene, framing, lighting, editing, camera work, sound, editing, genre, and acting as these mediate film narratives an , so, comprise their discourses. The course also explores structures of film narration as they relate to literary narration; it includes contextual consideration of history and ideology as these interact with film production and reception. Primary texts will include readings in literary and film theory, films and film excerpts, and literature.
