FRNC2681 - French Narrative Cinema

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Michelle Royer


This unit will explore the ways in which French cinema and society have interacted since WWII. It will examine how French society has been represented in fiction films and how major socio-political events have shaped French cinema. We will explore some basic concepts in French film theory and analytical methods derived from them. Film screenings are an integral part of the unit, and students must arrange their timetable so that they can watch each film at least once.
