This course examines the range of ways that film sound, an important yet often overlooked dimension of film style, has been used across the history of narrative cinema. Focusing especially on U.S. cinema, but also devoting time to sound-conscious international auteurs, the course examines how music, sound effects, dialogue, and even silence have played integral roles in telling stories and affecting viewers.
