FILM 50.01 Cinematic Mirrors: Reflexivity and Authorship in Global Film History

This course investigates a trend in modernist and postmodernist cinema of reflexive films or metafilms: films foregrounding the medium through themes, techniques, style, and formal methods that call attention to the artificiality of cinema. How authorship and the concept of the “auteur” affects production and reception of these films, how different national and political contexts impact their production, and how compatible metafilms are with mainstream commercial practice, are among the questions explored in the course.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
