Film as Literature

Explore film as an art form and examine the interaction of film and literary texts. In this class we will delve into the narrative ability of film and compare this to several short stories that have been adapted into films. We will be viewing a variety of films in this class, and reading the source text alongside some of them. Students will gain a deeper understanding of film from a literary perspective and will be well-versed in ideas such as symbolism, literary devices, and narrative tools specific to film such as the use of color, sound, and specific camera angles and techniques to invoke feelings.
