The year one course introduces you to the language of film and provides you with the tools to decode and analyse film texts. You will study Global films made inside and outside of Europe, not in the English language as well as American film forms and the growth of Hollywood. You will investigate the codes and conventions of these Hollywood and global films, and explore issues of representation that reflects the production context of the films. The final element of the year is a study of a documentary film and the significance of digital technology.
