UC Master Classes
International Filmmakers and Theoreticians
Lecturers: Alan Rosenthal, Bill Nichols, Péter Kerekes, Karen Everett
This course unit focuses on screenings and lectures given by acknowledged international documentary filmmakers and film theoreticians.
Classes will introduce and discuss these professionals’ individual research and creative approaches, filmic visions and tricks of the trade, as well as the circumstances under which their documentary projects were realised.
During the semester students will enlarge their view on some significant documentaries produced in Europe and internationally, and will also become acquainted with works created using a variety of different methods.
Encountering and understanding such different forms and styles should help the students to develop their own filmic vision and also to approach their chosen subjects more bravely.
