Course Content (Syllabus)
This course aims to acquaint students with the concept of “theory” and the study of the key film theories from the early 1920s to 1960. The central questions of these theories were “what is cinema” and “to what extent it can become an art.” With the Classical Hollywood cinema as a main reference point, we discuss a wide range of ideas and positions regarding the nature and function of the cinematic medium and we try to identify the pertinence to these theories to the cinema today.
