AH 187 - Golden Years of the Japanese Cinema

Lower Division

Post-WWII Japanese cinema produced an unequalled national cinema featuring masters such as Akira Kurosawa, Yasujiro Ozu, kenji Mizoguchi, Kon Ichikawa, and Tashigihara Hiroshi. It was a cinema of great humanism, deep philosophical meditation, and in some instances action and drama that no other cinema in the world could match, but imitated by many filmmakers around the world. We will see exemplary works of each of these filmmakers and more. The desired learning outcome for this course is to become familiar with aspects of Iranian culture through her national cinema and become somewhat acquainted with the cinematic terminology that is required to understand an introductory level of film analysis. This course does not require prior knowledge of these cultures or film history. Students will get a deeper understanding of this national cinema by making their own versions of the films they see as creative practice.
