FILMSTUD 102: Theories of the Moving Image (FILMSTUD 302)

What makes the moving image unique in its capacity for telling stories, influencing thoughts, and stirring emotions? What are the potentials and risks of cinema's affective power? This course looks at concepts developed by filmmakers, film critics, and philosophers to explain affinities between mind and moving image, to envision cinema¿s promise, and to identify its limitations. We will read a range of authors, some classic, some contemporary, including André Bazin, Laura Mulvey, and D. A. Miller. Films will include classics such as Julie Dash's Daughters of the Dust (1991) and recent releases such as Hirokazu Koreeda's Shoplifters (2018). Students will learn to speak and write confidently about influential theories and methods in the field of film and media studies. They will learn to formulate research questions that are in dialogue with vital concepts. Through close analysis, they will assess how theories of film and media speak, or fail to speak, to their own experience. And ideally, students will venture to engage in theoretical speculation of their own.
