ENG 513 - Major Directors and/or Screenwriters

A seminar designed to approach major film directors and/or screenwriters and the films and scripts associated with their work. Some directors, such as Luis Buñuel, worked closely with specific screenwriters (e.g. Jean-Claude Carrière) and in that sense both film and script will be discussed. In other situations, such as with Jean-Luc Godard and Federico Fellini, the director may also have been the writer. In some cases, we may focus on the work of a particular screenwriter such as Waldo Salt (Midnight Cowboy) or Buck Henry (The Graduate). Regardless, the course would focus on one particular director or screenwriter in an attempt to critically analyze their work from an aesthetic perspective. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
