Reading Films is a compulsory unit for MA Film Studies students. The class focuses on advanced textual analysis and prepares students for an examination that consists of a sequence analysis of a brief sequence taken from one of the films screened for the Reading Films course.
Following a brief lecture on the week's topic, we will work in small groups to analyse specific sequences, from both the films screened for the course and other sources, in an attemp to develop productive ways of approaching the film as text and in so doing better understand how the different elements of the cinematic interact.
