Unique Course Offerings

MLAN 303X / HONR 232H - Dream in International Cinema

A foremost goal of this course is to enhance understanding of film as an art form, especially in its capacity to express dream states and explore alternative realities. Students will examine works from diverse national contexts and perspectives, discerning throughout the intrinsic stylistics emphasized in conjuring dream states, whether discreet dream sequences included in a film or the film itself as a continuous flow of dream. Students will contribute discussion and essays analyzing the films, especially comparing the intentions and signatures of great directors, including masterpieces by Fellini, Bergman, Kurasawa, Cocteau, Bunuel, Mizoguchi, Tarkovsky, and Kubrick, among others.
