CINE 332 - The Autobiographical Film

FC ARHU
4 credits
Autobiography has proven to be one of the richest and most enduring modes of cinematic storytelling. This could seem paradoxical, since authorial presence runs counter to one of the great rules of classical Hollywood filmmaking: that the film/maker remain invisible. What happens when filmmakers take leave of this arbitrary rule and turn the camera on themselves? What happens when self-inscription becomes not an obstruction to filmmaking but its very purpose? Students in this class will consider autobiography as a cinematic discourse encompassing aspects of fiction, documentary, experimental, and performance modes, as well as strategies of portraiture, confession, memoir, and reenactment.
