Advanced Global Film Auteurs
FILM 388
Fall 2020
Section: 01  

This course offers a critical introduction to film auteurs from around the world spanning the 1930s to the present day. Our aim is threefold: to analyze the narrative and stylistic tendencies of each filmmaker while considering their work in a historical and industrial context; to develop our film analysis skills via formal comparison; and to consider the formation, redefinition, and influence of film canons. Emphasis will be placed on describing and analyzing the functions of narrative and stylistic elements and their effects on the viewing experience. Each week will include two film screenings, a lecture, and a discussion. Screenings will include films directed by Fernando Eimbcke, Abbas Kiarostami, Krzysztof Kieslowski, Akira Kurosawa, Satyajit Ray, Jean Renoir, Ousmane Sembène, Céline Sciamma, Seijun Suzuki, Agnès Varda, Luchino Visconti, and Zhang Yimou, among others.
