The Courses

Working With 'The Real': Documentary Film History, Theory and Practice, basic - 30 ECTS

Documentary film embodies a wide area of production within its distinguished history. Parallel to developing a documentary film, the aim is to survey documentary film history and theory, doing so from a perspective that accounts for the cinematic art produced within this rich cinematic tradition. Aiming to blend theory and practice, the course supports the following thesis: films are texts that we read, and we should consider even academic writing as taking shape in cinematic form. Here, filmmaking is intellectual as well as creative work. The course should be of interest to both cinema-studies students, and those interested in beginning or continuing a documentary film practice.
