CTV 7500 Film and Literature (3 units)
- Medium of Instruction:
Film and literature are two vastly different forms of media and artistic creations. Yet, they often intertwine, inﬂuence and nourish one another. This course sets its foundation on theories in humanities and the dual perspectives of sensibility and rational analysis, in order to reﬂect on both ﬁlm and literature. This course explores the close relationship of film and literature through appreciating and critiquing their various representations and impacts. By studying Asian and international films and literary works, students will understand the nature of films and literature, as well as the diverse forms of creations from different regions and of different creative media. The goal of this course is to enhance students' appreciation and interpretation of the aesthetics and art, enrich their creative thinking and vision.
The teaching method of this course is interactive, with frequent discussions between the lecturer and students. Apart from lectures, students are required to create a short film script (around ten minutes) by adapting a great literary short story as one of the assignments. The goal is to apply theories to systematically narrate the artistic and creative depth of the literary work. Students will be able to apply the knowledge they learn in their personal creative work.
