FMA 345 - Film Theory

[3 credit(s)]
Prerequisites: FMA 141, FMA 142 and FMA 243; or permission of instructor. This course is designed to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of the major theoretical approaches to the analysis of the moving image from the earliest work of Sigfried Kracauer and Rudolph Arnheim to the most contemporary examinations of the impact of digital technology on the cinema. A very broad range of methodologies, models, and concepts will be explored in order to give the student an extensive array of tools to apply in the attempt to understand the motion picture in terms of the basic qualities of the medium, the cinematic language, authorship and production, gender, spectatorship, and cultural significance.
