On September 7, 2009, Elia Kazan would have been 100 years old. Celebrating Elia Kazan will serve as an exploration of Kazan's directorial style in the medium of cinema and his impact on American filmmaking. Materials from the Wesleyan Cinema Archives, which include Kazan's personal notebooks and archival papers, will be referenced through the semester. Archival staff will be on hand to explain research techniques and use of these materials. Students will be expected to undertake archival research for at least one assignment during this course, in addition to other analytical exercises. Screenings will emcompass selections from Kazan's most celebrated films to his most underrated masterpieces, including many of his lesser-known movies that are seldom screened.
This course is designed to teach students to write and speak coherently via written assignments and oral presentations. It is also designed to help students understand, evaluate, and contextualize a non-verbal medium.
