ENG 293 - Film as a Narrative Art

Kuzmanovich, Miller

We examine the relations among the three terms of the course title: film, narrative, and art. The examination will  suggest some reasons for the curious and almost hypnotic power of visual and literary images to console and chastise us;  reshuffle our memories and our priorities; hurt us and heal us by getting us out of ourselves or more deeply into parts of ourselves we have not visited lately;  teach us self-evasion or self-confrontation; and  move us to tears, dreams, eloquence, and action.

The course is an introduction to film language. Students may make short videos, but the instructor  does not assume any production experience
