FMS 256 History of Cinema - The Auteurs

FMS 256 History of Cinema - The Auteurs Course Overview


CEA Partner Institution: Anglo-American University
Location: Prague, Czech Republic
Primary Subject Area: Film Studies
Instruction in: English
Course Details: Level 200
Recommended Semester Credits: 3
Contact Hours: 42


This course is a survey of thirteen major film auteurs from the advent of cinema in 1895 to the present. An auteur is an artist, usually a film director, who applies a highly centralized and subjective control to many aspects of a collaborative creative work; in other words, a person equivalent to an author of a novel or a play. Progressing chronologically, the course builds an overall view of auteur theory across cultures, considering film criticism, as well as analyzing the styles of major auteurs. Students will also become familiar with key concepts in film studies including realism, expressionism, montage, mise en scene, and genre. As students acquire a better familiarity with cinematic history and the developments in film criticism, they will become better prepared to form surer and sounder judgments about their own film experiences and to speak and write about those judgments with greater clarity and skill.
