Film Studies lecturer invited to teach course at Czech University
Film Studies Reader Dr Warren Buckland was recently involved in a short course at Masaryk University in Kamenice, Czech Republic, lecturing on one of his main research specialisms: Film Style and Aesthetics.
The popular course ran from the 15-18 April and aimed to outline the methodological theories that film studies scholars have developed over the last 40 years, highlighting the specific type of knowledge each generates about film. Theories explored included film style, textual analysis, narratology, auteur analysis and film poetics. Examples included Hollywood film style - such as narration in Jurassic Park (1993) - narration and focalisation in European films, and the works of Yasujirō Ozu, Wes Anderson and David Lynch were used as specific cinematic case studies.
