IAHIS 2505 History of the Moving Image II

This course expands on the history of cinema that is covered in History of the Moving Image. Looking beyond the canon of Hollywood films, this course will explore film history through non-Western, experimental and underground perspectives. Discussion will focus on the impact of the work on both mainstream filmmaking and society at large, as well as the broader historical and cultural contexts in which they were produced. During the course, students will watch movies, television shows, animations and experimental works that illustrate both a wide range of possibilities and the rich history of the moving image outside the Hollywood studio system.
