LIBS 7014 - Film and Theatre: An Active Audience

Liberal Studies Part-time Studies Course

Course Details

In this course students will learn how to watch movies and read plays with a critical eye. In the discussions about movies the focus will be on the "grassroots creativity" - fan movies and video games - as responses to media industry dominance. Also, the topics such as film, theatre and politics, Hollywood versus independent films, and film and art will be explored. During the course there will be a few screenings of some cult movies such as Blade Runner, Casablanca, and Pulp Fiction. After completing the course, students should be able to demonstrate the ability to engage in critique relevant to both film and theatre media texts.
