AFVS 173D - What Is (21st-Century) Cinema?

Description
More than a half century after André Bazin asked “what is cinema?” this class will attempt to answer that fundamental question from the unstable vantage of the present. We will do so by looking at the aesthetic forms, technological movements, economic structures, and critical and theoretical discourses that have shaped — and that continue to transform — contemporary moving-image culture. Students will encounter work across forms and genres by a wide range of filmmakers who have collectively begun to define what a 21st-century cinema might look like.
