FILM 180 - The Screenplay as Literature

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
This course is a survey of the history, theory, and analysis of the screenplay as a literary form. How did the screenplay arise? Is the screenplay a piece of literature? What is the future for the screenplay? How do we read and contextualize a screenplay within the greater scope of film and literature? These are some of the questions we explore. We also study screenplays in and of themselves, in order to better understand how they are crafted, how they function, and why they exist. Joseph Muszynski.

Open only to first-year students; satisfies college requirement for a First-Year Writing Seminar.

Two 75-minute periods plus outside screenings.

Course Format: CLS
