CINE 793 - Cinema and Photography

ARTH 793
401 | R 1:30-4:30pm

This course will focus on the complex relationship between film and photography. As we consider these two hybrid mediums of modernity in relation to each other, we will focus on questions of temporality, indexicality, truth, narrative and movement. We will read histories and theories of the two mediums from the 19th century through to the present day in the context of specific photographic images, artists' film and video work, and weekly film screenings, including Chris Marker's La jetée, Michelangelo Antonioni's Blow-Up, Michael Snow's Wavelength, Hou Hsiao-hsien's City of Sadness. Requirements: attendance at screenings, student presentations, class participation, and 20-25 page research paper.
