Course Description

In this course you will learn to view films critically, seeing them as collaborative works of art that both reflect and influence society. Additionally, you will gain insight into the technical, historical, and political aspects of the cinema business. These objectives will be met through class lecture and discussion, textbook readings, and written analysis of films viewed in and outside of class. 

This course has no required prerequisites, counts for three hours of General Education credit at IVCC; and transfers to IAI-participating schools as an F2 905 class, and, as such, it must be approached with a serious and thoughtful attitude.
