Film Appreciation


Adult Enrichment / ACE Highlights -
Winter 2022

Movie lovers, come learn more about the beauty that makes film such a unique art form. Develop a deeper understanding of how to get the most out of your movie watching experience by looking at cinematic movements and genres from across both history and the world. We’ll watch clips each week and dig into the history that shaped these movements and explore the qualities of each that contribute to the greater world of cinema. We’ll explore the characteristics of Film Noir and the French New Wave movement, compare the style of comedies from Charlie Chaplan and the Marx Brothers, as well as a range of Western film scenes from the ‘30s to the ‘60s. No film background is required for this course and a wide range of perspectives and backgrounds are encouraged to sign up.
