AFVS 170S - Film and the Self-Image: From Local Cinema to the Selfie

Description
Films and moving images have a long history of putting “the self” on screen. This course will take an alternate route through the history of non-fiction film and video making in order to explore this history of the “Self-Image.” We will also consider the theoretical and political implications of film’s century of picturing the self, investigating differences from other instances of ‘self-media.’ How do film and moving image media change how we understand the self? Notes: This course will have mandatory weekly film screenings on Fridays from 3:00 to 5:30 in the Carpenter Center Lecture Hall.
