ENGL 450 - Film Theory


Class Hours: 3
Lab/Discussion: 0
Credits: 3

Prerequisite: ENGL 121  or ENGL 122 ; and ENGL 202 , ENGL 208 
An introduction to major film theories, studied in relation to representative films. Details the complex relationship between film production and film theory, i.e., how theorists have attempted to explain what appears on the screen, its impact, and its relation to “reality,” and how filmmakers have responded to the works of theorists (with the two sometimes being the same). Goes far deeper into understanding film than ENGL 208 , which focuses mainly on how film is constructed through aesthetic and institutional processes.
