A film movement is a filmmaking trend shaped by and reflecting the time, people, culture, social norms, and political events of the location from which it emerged. Often these movements are generated by filmmakers or film critics who formed ideas through discussion about how to create films, then put those theories into motion. This course will watch and discuss twelve different films whose characteristics are representative of movements spanning, in chronological order, the silent era to present time. For the first class please watch Battleship Potemkin, (1919) Serge Eisenstein, an example of the “Soviet Montage” film movement. A complete program will be provided by the first class.
