Description

This course will explore the role of France as the birthplace of cinema. Over the past century its capital has been not only the subject but also the star of many of the films that ushered in the major aesthetic movements of our time: from modernity through surrealism, cinéma vérité to the new wave. This course is offered in Spring & Summer Session, with two weeks of classes in Saskatoon and two weeks of study in Paris. The classes will provide students with the vocabulary and skills to "read" a film, while contextualizing clips from representative films from the last century of French cinema. In Paris, students will make site visits to la Cinémathèque française, and will access research materials at the Forum des Images at the Georges Pompidou Centre.
