The Art & Language of Film

A vintage sign of the word "Cinema" painted with red paint against a white background.The Art & Language of Film

Instructor: Eric Shoag

Location: Remote/Online (Moodle)  

This class will examine the development of cinematic language over the decades by focusing on one film a week, each from a different time period & spotlighting a different approach to the challenges of telling a unique story through the medium of the motion picture. Students will be required to watch the assigned movies & be prepared to discuss them from a number of perspectives, concentrating on the various technical & thematic decisions involved in the production & their relative success or failure both in their own time & from the perspective of our vantage point here in the 21st century. Instructor: Eric Shoag
