Avant Garde Film
Course No. HCS325 Credits: 3.0
Faculty Bruce Checefsky
Film, the quintessential art form of the 20th century, added time and relativity to the artist's palette. This course examines the abstract and non-narrative tradition: films that focus on manipulation of form, motion, and the collage-like collision of images in time (montage). Topics include early Soviet formalists, Dadaist and Surrealist films of the 1920's and 1930's, and American underground films of the 1960's and 1970's. Students keep a journal of their impressions of each film shown. COURSE FEE REQUIRED. May be applied as Visual Culture Emphasis course. 3 credits.
