CINE 282 - Hollywood Narrative & Genre

FC ARHU
4 credits
This course explores the art, craft, business, and ideology of popular screen narratives from Hollywood’s classical period to the present.  Topics to be discussed include three-act structure, storyworld, perspective, agency, temporarality, emotion, suspense, resolution and surprise.  Our discussions will connect significant films to both practical and philosophical texts, with an emphasis on the mechanics of story and the social ritual of genre.  Finally, we will consider the challenge presented to traditional narrative by the rise of on-demand streaming services and interactive entertainment.
