Like movies? Like to think?
Here is a spring course for you:
We wanted to make sure you know about a new course for First-Year Students, FYFO 250 Thinking through Film, and explain the details of how to register for the course.
Idea behind the course:
In this 0.25 credit course, students will watch six provocative films from diverse times and places and engage in discussion sections with upperclass mentors and faculty. We think it will be fun and provoke a lot of good discussions. It is graded Pass/Fail and will fit into almost everyone’s schedule. See more details below.
To register for the course:
The course is listed under the First Year Focus program.
- To find it in the on-line course schedule, you must “Browse by Subject” and look under First Year Focus. (It does not appear when you “browse by department”.)
- On the on-line registration page, you must do a class search and also look under First Year Focus.
- In the on-line registration system, you can simply add the course by its course number, which is 3058.
The following films will be shown on six Wednesdays at 7:00 pm in Cinestudio:
- 1/30 Rear Window (Alfred Hitchcock 1954)
- 2/13 The Lives of Others (Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, 2006)
- 2/27 Pleasantville (Gary Ross, 1998)
- 3/13 Gattaca (Andrew Niccol, 1997)
- 4/3 Casablanca (Michael Curtiz, 1942)
- 4/17 Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge (The Brave Heart Gets the Bride)(Aditya Chopra, 1995)
The discussion sections will be held at many different times and days of the week; there will almost certainly be a section that is available within everyone’s schedule. Students will sign-up for these discussion sections later.
