This course is an introduction to the aesthetics of film. We will study the elements that make up a film: documentary, avant-garde, genres, authorship, ideology, and representation. We will discuss how these elements interact with one another to constitute a whole system that generates meanings and other effects. Students will be introduced to the key aesthetic aspects of film by exploring a range of styles and genres, including narrative and non-fiction forms, and dominant and alternative styles.
