||This course aims to train students to see films as an artistic text, an industrial product, as well as a social practice. Students will learn to analyze the form of a film, including cinematography, editing, sound, and mise-èn-scene and to interpret the meanings conveyed. Notions of genre, auterism, and ideology will be introduced for them to understand that a film does not exit by itself. It can be shaped by an individual director for artistic reasons, an industry for profits, and a nation for political purposes. Students are required to attend the weekly screenings on Mondays in the evening from 18:15 to 20:15. There will be weekly quizzes and weekly writing assignments.
