FREN 250: French Cinema

David Andrew Jones

(Submission #55)

Course Description

This course will focus on the study of the contributions of French filmmakers to the art form of cinema. Students will learn the history of cinema in France, and will study the innovations introduced by French filmmakers. Students will learn to make more informed aesthetic judgments, and will train their critical faculties in a way that will help them better understand all forms of visual media--including plastic arts, television, advertising, and the internet. This course meets the aims of the Appreciating and Participating in the Arts section of the PLAS by training students in the “skills of observing and listening to…and appreciating and understanding the creative arts,” thereby helping students to “develop awareness of the role of these arts in human life.”
