Sophomore Colloquium for Declaring Majors: This and That, Here and There, Now and Then|
Fall 2018 not offered
This class is designed for sophomores who have completed the CFILM gateway courses and wish to deepen their exploration of film art. The curriculum aims to draw connections across different eras, origins, and story forms by pairing films for comparison. What can Frank Capra teach us about Pixar? What can Johnny To teach us about Ernst Lubitsch? Is there such a thing as a good remake? What are the essential parameters of cinema that endure, which every filmmaker must consider? Through close viewing of films from many eras and origins, in-class discussions, and analytical papers, students will strengthen their engagement with the tools of cinema in preparation for continued study in the major.
