Introduction to Film (SML1207)

15 credits

This module offers students of any language an introduction to studying film. You will watch and learn about a range of films, from Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, German and Chinese language cinemas, but its primary objective is to introduce you to the language of film itself. It takes as its unifying theme the representation of the child, a common motif across global cinema. Since the module draws on a wide range of staff expertise you will meet a number of different lecturers, whilst working with the same seminar tutor for consistency. No prior study of cinema or language is required.
