|How To Read a Movie Visually|
|Session||12 weeks 28-Jan|
A movie has a basic structure through which the screenwriter/director keeps an audience enthralled. Its successful construction guarantees the audience's participation in the film. This course will examine this structure by viewing and discussing films from different periods of filmmaking, enabling the student to understand (read) the successful execution or failure of a film's story line and thus augmenting the enjoyment of the movie-watching experience. This is the same course as last semester, except that we will watch 4 different films.
