Sophomore Colloquium for Declaring Majors
FILM 305
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

This class is designed for sophomores who have completed the CFILM gateway courses and wish to deepen their exploration of film art. The curriculum aims to draw connections across different eras, origins, and story forms by pairing films for comparison. What can Frank Capra teach us about Pixar? What does Bette Davis have in common with The Babadook? Is there such a thing as a good remake? What are essential parameters of cinema that endure, which every filmmaker must consider? Through close viewing of films from many eras and origins, in-class discussions, and analytical papers, students will strengthen their engagement with the tools of cinema in preparation for continued study in the major.
