(3)Students will view and analyze western and non-western movies, taking narrative cinema as the principal conduit into the lives, times, and cultures of other persons. As a foundation for film studies, we will explore the artistic and technical components of the cinema: narrative, mise en scène, cinematography, editing, and so on. Through this engagement with world cinema, the course will underline the connection between analyzing our experiences of film and a richer, more sophisticated enjoyment of it.
