Introduction to American Film

Taught By: Dr. Thomas Easterling
Course Length: One Semester
Prerequisites: None
Topics Covered: American films and film vocabulary

We are so accustomed to cinematic conventions that we have often internalized them. This course gives students the vocabulary needed to discuss films critically, and along the way we will screen some of the twentieth century's most important (and, outside of film culture, overlooked) movies.
