Join us for a monthly online film studies course, hosted by beloved cineaste Malcolm Weintraub and co-curated by director, producer and screenwriter Anthony Weintraub. We’ll discuss the film’s narrative and stylistic techniques and the creative approaches behind them, as well as the social, cultural and historical influences of the films and their contexts. Our goal: to more fully understand how meaning is constructed, conveyed and interpreted in film.

Participants are to independently view each film prior to the Zoom screening. A syllabus with streaming options will be provided.

Films to include: "La Strada" (Fellini, 1954); "Vertigo" (Hitchcock, 1958); "The Apartment" (Wilder, 1960); "Blow Up" (Antonioni, 1966); and, "Once Upon a Time in the West" (Leone, 1968).
