Description

While we often expect the action of films to unfold in chronological order, there are many other possibilities. In our final session, we will look at various components of film narrative and how they can be manipulated to create anticipation, tension, and resolution. Our examples will be drawn from Casablanca, Bonnie & Clyde, L'Avventura, and (500) Days of Summer. After the lecture, we recommend watching Vertigo.

Available to rent anytime.
