Narratives of medieval journeys are studied across a wide range of categories, including pilgrimages, crusades, quests, and sagas. The journey as metaphor, along with the resulting and very real cultural interactions, will provide a main focus for examining this rich tradition of literature.

DLCL 152A: DLCL Film Series: Films on Film (DLCL 354A)

Join us for the DLCL Film Series¿ Spring theme, FILMS ON FILM, as we look at how the cinema portrays itself in international film. Starting with Dziga Vertov¿s revolutionary film The Man with the Movie Camera (1929), we will briefly examine the history of early cinema and pre-cinematic technologies and how the camera adapted itself to modern urban experiences. Passing to Ventura Pons' Actresses (1996), we will examine the voices and bodies of actors and actresses that make up the raw material of cinema. The fantastically self-reflexive New Wave movement of Federico Fellini¿s 8 1/2 (1963) introduces the anxiety of film production and the blurring of the lines between reality and film that we will see in Michel Gondry¿s surreal The Science of Sleep (2006) and Spike Jonze¿s cripplingly self-conscious Adaptation (2002). We will also look at Federico Veiroj¿s The Useful Life (2010) to examine the representation of the movie theatre, and the effects screening has on audiences and the projectionist. Les Blank¿s Burden of Dreams (1982), which features Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski, and Wim Wender¿s The State of Things (1983) illustrate the struggle of filming, finding the necessary capital and labor for production, and wrangling the unexpected and unplanned aspects of reality. Whereas Pablo Berger¿s Torremolinos 73 shows the dreams of a desperate man who dreams of cinematic glory, David Lynch¿s unsettling Mulholland Drive (2001) uncovers the dark underbelly of Hollywood culture. Discussions will focus on the way that films flatter, critique, and repeat themselves, complexify or wear themselves out, and experiment with new aspects of their self-consciousness. In particular we will discuss how nationality, class, gender, and technology affect films¿ representation of their origins, production, and influence on the world.nnnPlease be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content. Viewers are advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. All screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films.nnnPlease also note that grades for this course are entirely dependent on attendance, which is taken at the end of each screening. Enrolled students MUST attend AT LEAST SEVEN screenings in order to obtain credit.
