    S.F. State, CINE 302

    Excerpt: ... Cine 302 Film History 2 Rutsky Spring 09 Mid-Term Study Guide Approximately 1/3 of the exam will consist of short Identification-type questions or fill-inthe-blank questions. The remaining 2/3 or so of the exam will consist of (1) "one-paragraph answer" questions and (2) somewhat longer essay questions (questions will, with some possible modifications, be taken from the list of essay questions below). On these longer essay questions, some weight will be given to how well you organize your thoughts, so you should try to prepare some basic points for each possible question. Do not simply write everything that comes to mind, but, instead, take some time to organize/outline your points before you begin to write. Generally, one Green Book will be enough for the exam, but if your handwriting is large, you may wish to bring two Green Books to the exam. Sample essay questions for study. What were the major factors that helped to allow the development of a viable international art cinema after World War II? What facto ...

    GER 515 F04

    Ill. Chicago, ECON 515

    Excerpt: ... GER 515 Fall 2004 CRN 19524 New Directions in German Cinema Studies This course is open to graduate students from all disciplines. It will provide an introduction to techniques of film analysis and to German and Austrian film history . However, it will differ from the standard From Caligari to Helmer (1918-1945) and From Staudte to Tykwer (1945-2000) survey course. Instead of studying cinematic works in chronological order and grouping them into periods according to major events in European history, we will approach films from different periods with questions that concern Film Studies in general, not just German Film Studies. Drawing on the most recent publications in the field, we will discuss and test the viability of such categories of analysis as primitive cinema, genre, national cinema, exile filmmaking, minority filmmaker, author, star, and independent film. Nonetheless, close attention will always be paid to the historical and cultural speci ...
