The course aims to revisit modern cinema, focusing on medium specificity, narrative and semiotic structures of movements such as the Avant-Garde, the so-called auteurs and self-reflexive cinema, as well as posmtodern cinema and contemporary avant-garde, placing them in the context of modernism and postmodernism (surrealism, anant-garde, self-reflexivity, intertextuality, allienation, metanarratives, parody-pastiche). At the same time, the course is an introduction to contemporary film theories, such as semiotics, the psychoanalytic film theory and the feminist film theory. By the end of the course, students will be able to look into the dialogue between the creative choices of a film text and wider theoretical contexts.
