Duration: 330 mins
This one day course will primarily explore three things: what it means for a film to be ‘realistic’, what techniques contribute towards a film being ‘realistic’, and ultimately how realism in cinema makes audiences feel. Our exploration of this will be guided by examining realism in relation to national cinema contexts and key cinematic movements such as Italian Neo-Realism, British Social Realism and Dogme 95 (Danish Realism).
