Exploring experimental documentary and narrative forms, in this class we will expand our idea of the boundaries between fiction and non-fiction cinema. We’ll watch films that give a broad historical overview of the evolution of the essay film and documentaries, spanning from early cinema to today. The selection will be international in scope, and touch on ethnographic film-making, social documentary, feminist perspectives, and non-western storytelling approaches. The class will be seminar-style, and based around weekly film screenings and a discussion group with appearances by special guest experts and filmmakers.
