This seminar is a select examination of films from D.W. Griffith, Buster Keaton, Fritz Lang, Carl Theodor Dreyer, Dziga Vertov,
Sergei Eisenstein, and Orson Welles (i.e., pre-1945 Euro-American cinema) with special focus given to those cinematic
moments that teach and train us in new non-dominatory viewing strategies, in new creative ways of circulating, and in new
nonsadistic ways of engaging with the most essential element of the cinema: the aesthetic unit of the image. Film criticism
and film philosophy from Leo Bersani-Ulysse Dutoit, David A. Cook, Gilles Deleuze, Siegfried Kracauer, Erik Roraback, and
Steven Shaviro will be our textual objects of focus. All films are either in English or have English inter-titles or sub-titles. Clips
and special features from the DVDs will also be shown, including from Jean-Luc Godard´s Histoire(s) du cinéma, 4 dvd set
(2007). The course is conducted in English and consists of three clock hour long sessions (i.e., four academic hours) to
allow sufficient time for both the screenings and for seminar lecture/discussion.

DVD and VHS tapes: see schedule that will be handed out in class

To receive credit for the seminar students must: have no more than three absences, give one oral presentation on a film and
