Cinematic Aesthetic Theory


This course will focus specifically on defining aesthetic
responses to award-winning films and will discuss the
following theories:

1. Auteur: viewing a film from the director’s perspective.
2. Genre: viewing a film as part of a larger, genre approach.
3. Audience response: viewing a film as seen from an audience’s perspective.
4. Semiology: viewing a film as a series of signs that point beyond its individual representation.

We will be viewing four films nominated for best picture in 2018:
1. Lady Bird, 1:35
2. Get Out, 1:44
3. Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri, 1:56
