Kahani Badi Filmi Hai

In this part of the course, we look at the ideas of Time through cinema, examining not (only) from the perspective of the story but through various lenses. We will watch ten films, curated to be representative of their time and concept(s).

These films need to be viewed through lens like protagonists versus antagonists, action / movement, music and sound, costume, poster and type, social commentary, etc. These lenses will be made clear as we discuss aspects of cinema in the seminar class. With your lens, you will make an installation in the studio class.
