Elia Kazan's Films and Archives
FILM 366
Spring 2020
Section: 01  

Elia Kazan was one of the most successful and influential cross-platform artists of the 20th century, and his films are the most sophisticated, personal, and fully developed projects of his body of work. This course serves as an exploration of Kazan's directorial style in the medium of cinema--how he discovers, defines, and experiments with the form as he goes--and his lasting impact on American filmmaking. Screenings will encompass selections from Kazan's career--"On the Waterfront," "East of Eden," "A Streetcar Named Desire," "A Face in the Crowd," and others--as well as the work of influences, acolytes, and other filmmakers whose movies illuminate the distinctiveness of Kazan's approach.
