If you've always wanted to experience a course in the Park School and its nationally recognized film school but could never snag a seat, now is your chance. Study documentary from an international perspective in Non Fiction Film Theory for Spring 2011.
If you have a passion for documentary, history, political theory, environmental issues, global perspectives, aesthetics, television, propaganda, cinema, new media, social media, emerging technologies or just like to debate complex international issues, then you might want to enroll in:
Non Fiction Film Theory, CNPH 30100, M 3-6:20 and Tues 10-12:05,
The course explores and engages the history and theory of international documentary film, video, and new media/emerging media forms through exciting screenings of difficult-to-see works and readings which provide political/historical context and cutting edge conceptual models.
Documentary across all platforms --analog, digital, emerging technologies--is the most ubiquitous form of media in the world. One week of the course engages the 2011 Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival.
All seats in the class are open to ANY STUDENT from ANY MAJOR on campus. The only prerequisite you need are two liberal arts courses.
If you have tried and tried to secure a seat in a film school class, if you could not get an override in the past, and if your pleas for additional seats didn't work, now is the time to take advantage. Seats in this class are now opened up to the entire campus. You don't have to be a Cinema major or a Documentary Studies and Production major or a Park school major to secure a seat anymore.
