This class will encompass attempts by critics and filmmakers to come to terms with cinema as an art form during the first half of the 20th century. These authors asked fundamental questions about the nature of film, questions that should be of interest to any student of film: defining film's essential properties, effect on spectators, artistic uses of the medium, etc. Theorists include Arnheim, Bazin, Kuleshov, Dziga Vertov, Eisenstein, Perkins, and Burch.
