  Course Description
This course introduces students to the study of the motion picture, from its invention in the late 19th century to the present, with a focus on the development of the language of cinema over the course of the 20th century. Lecture and discussion will reveal how each film genre bears its own history of aesthetic, technological, and social innovation. By watching, discussing, and writing about the works of some of the world's greatest filmmakers, including Ford, Hitchcock, Fellini, Kurosawa, and Welles, we will improve our critical viewing skills and learn to think like filmmakers as we engage this quintessentially 20th-century art form.
