Certain films in American history - whether they intended to or not - changed the way that films were either made or distributed or promoted. We'll chart American film history through these landmark films, discuss what they changed, why, the films they influenced and the legacy of the changes they made in the industry.
These films changed the films in very different ways - whether it be performance style, scope, the craft of filmmaking or the business of it, we'll look at some of the most important films in movie history, but this time with an eye toward their impact and legacy.
Before beginning the course, we will have a virtual free introductory meeting with the group to get a sense of what the individual experiences and interests are as far as the course is concerned. The exact syllabus of the course will be determined from that initial meeting.
