Chess Fever 1925 & Man with a Movie Camera 1929 Films Discussion

PAPER DESCRIPTION                                                                                 

This course offers an introduction to the history of film from 1895 through 1931. We will begin by tracing the development of film technology, industry, and exhibition in France, the US, and Britain, before feature-length, narrative film became the dominant form of commercial cinema throughout the world. We will then examine the major film movements of the silent era: the Hollywood studio system, the avant-garde cinema of France, German Expressionism, and Soviet montage. We will conclude by looking at the emergence of sound film in the late 1920s. In the process, we will consider how silent-era film addressed early twentieth-century concerns about modernity, race, and gender.

Film Screening Journal:

Rather than a ‘discussion board’ you will be writing ‘journal entries’ each week focused on your thoughts on the films you have screened. You should articulate your opinion of the films, and also discuss how they fit in with the history you are learning. You will be able to see your fellow student’s journal entries once you have completed and submitted your own. It should be clear from your writing that you have watched the films. Due every Thursday by 11:59pm.


Please follow the guidelines very very carefully and write correctly.
