Cinema Studies 392
This course will explore cinematic authorship by focusing on directors who have defined a distinctive style despite emerging from vastly different cultural contexts. While their films reward examination in relation to these contexts and to the body of work of each director, their films also share a common domain, the contemporary international cinema of quality. In all these registers, we will examine the value and limitation of a concept of cinematic authorship.
