EDUCATORS WORKSHOP
  • Class B
  • Class A

Class B (July – December, 2012)

Let's get back to the basics. For educators who are interested in film education in the schooling system and have not yet had the opportunity to approach film in a systematic way, this workshop provides a broad introduction to the study of film as an art form. We will explore the concepts of film form, aesthetics and style, while remaining attentive to the cultural and historical context in which a work is produced and seen. Throughout the course, we will examine closely the construction of sight and sound through varied modes of organizing these core elements. In each session, a film will be shown in full after the initial lecture, followed by discussions with dedicated critics and scholars. We believe in the collective experience of film viewing as well as the medium's ability in depicting humanity.
