Academic Course
Prerequisite: 10.0 credits, including all first-year requirements (5.0 credits) and 1.0 credit of second-year liberal arts & sciences (including 0.5 credit in VISA/VISC/VISD/VISM).
This course offers an in-depth study of experimental film and media through the frameworks of contemporary film theory and new media studies. In addition to tracing the history of radical experiments in cinema, with a specific focus on Soviet revolutionary, European avant-garde and American underground film, the course discusses experimental approaches to contemporary media by examining diverse cross-platform projects and theoretical texts. Through screenings, readings, research, writing, and discussion, the students will analyze what film and media can do beyond telling stories and place experimental media in dialogue with a range of contemporary critical issues.
