Film Experience: theories and approaches

  • 7.5 credits

Course on Advanced level in Cinema Studies. This course explores film experience from a chosen theoretical perspective (e.g. phenomenological, cultural studies, new materialist, cognitive).

It offers enhanced insights into film theoretical traditions and schools, emphasizing the methodological question of applying the chosen approach to a particular genre, period, style or a thematic area.
