FILMSTUD 4: Introduction to Film Study: French Cinema in Focus

This course provides an introduction to film through the lens of French national cinema. We study the historical formation of the moving image in France (and beyond); from its humble beginnings as a novel attraction, to its rise as a major medium in its own right, appreciated for both its commercial and artistic appeal. We examine the work of a number of influential auteurs and key periods in the development of French national cinema: including the work of early masters Jean Vigo and Jean Renoir, members of the French New Wave Jean-Luc Godard and Agnès Varda, as well as contemporary filmmakers Mathieu Kassovitz and Olivier Assayas. In addition to undertaking a historical overview of French cinema, this course familiarizes students with a variety of approaches to the analysis of film style and form: mise-en-scène, cinematography, editing, sound, performance, etc. While no prior knowledge of French cinema or film analysis is required, a willingness to engage deeply and critically with film is fundamental.

FILMSTUD 100B: History of World Cinema II: Currents in Francophone Film, 1970-present

This course surveys developments in global French-language cinema since 1970, a period marked by a radical reconsideration of national identity, social and sexual politics, and collective memory. Special attention is given to an international roster of francophone films and filmmakers outside of France, from Quebec to Martinique, Belgium to Senegal. Directors like Mati Diop, Euzha Palcy, Chantal Akerman, Abderrahmane Sissako, and Xavier Dolan offer new and shifting currents with which to rethink a decolonized national cinema, sociopolitical turmoil, and the role of the contemporary film viewer.

FILMSTUD 290: Movies and Methods: Contemporary Black Filmmakers (AMSTUD 290, FILMSTUD 490)

Despite the systemic inequalities of the Hollywood system, there is a robust, stylistically diverse cohort of African-American writer/directors at work, including Barry Jenkins, Ava DuVernay, and Ryan Coogler. Jenkins' films (Moonlight, If Beale Street Could Talk), are aesthetically lush, intimate, and understated. DuVernay (When They See Us) foregrounds racial history and injustice in her feature films, television, and documentary work. Coogler followed his realist Fruitvale Station with two powerful genre films with black protagonists (Creed, Black Panther - this last the highest-grossing film by a black director).
