For students entering grades 9 – 12 in the fall of 2020. This course will be offered in an online format. Description Film Studies provides an overview of film history from the invention of motion picture technology to the present day. This course is broad, both chronologically and geographically, incorporating many foreign language films while focusing on the history of the American motion picture as a frame of reference. There are six major components engaged throughout the year: the evolution of the technology and its connection with major historical movements; analysis of film utilizing key terminology from films studies and theory; critique of social issues such as gender, class, race, and politics in film; creative production of a short film and exhibition in a festival; publication of a contemporary film review; and a film exhibition and discussion with an audience. In summary, film studies students will acquire language to critique historical, theoretical, technical, and social issues in film, create a short film for exhibition in a campus film festival, and generate a film review blog shared with the campus community. Course films include, but are not limited to: City Lights (1931); Bringing Up Baby (1938); Rebecca (1940); The Red Shoes (1948); High Noon (1952); Singin’ In the Rain (1952); Some Like It Hot (1959); The 400 Blows (1959); Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967); Zanjeer (1973); Raise the Red Lantern (1991); The Hate U Give (2018).
