Program Description

*** Deadline Monday, April 18th! ***

Lang College/The New School will be participating in the Hanyang International Summer School (HISS) program at Hanyang University. Professor Genevieve Yue of the Department Culture and Media will be offering Art Film/Experimental Cinema, a course that examines the expressive capacities of film as art in international art cinema, experimental cinema, and contemporary moving image art. This is a unique opportunity to learn about contemporary moving image form, with an international cohort of students, and in the context of a cosmopolitan Asian city with one of the most vibrant film cultures in the world.

Course Description
This course provides a foundation for comprehending the range of cinema’s expressive capacities as aesthetic practice. Students will study and analyze the basic formal elements of cinematic form, and they will apply these formal qualities in the examination of a variety of cinematic practices, including classical Hollywood cinema, the international art film, and avant-garde film, documentary, and contemporary moving image art. Through readings of canonical and recent scholarly texts, a diverse selection of screenings, and class discussion, students will gain and practice a formal vocabulary, unpack complex articulations of meaning, and explore the aesthetically imaginative possibilities of a range of moving image work. The class will maintain an emphasis on contemporary Asian cinema, and feature site visits to the Korean Film Archive and the Samsung Museum of Art.

HISS Program
Students who attend the HISS program will take Art Film/Experimental Cinema, which will count for 4 TNS credits. For Culture and Media and Screen majors and minors, the course will also meet one 3000-level course requirement.

Students may also take other courses at HISS for Lang transfer credit, including: Cross-Cultural Documentary Research, Media Industry in Korea, Visual Language in Film and Other Media, Korean Cinema and Modernization, Photo and Video Journalism, Digital Studio, Method Acting on Stage, History of Western Theater, Korean History and Culture, North Korean Politics and Society, Gender and Korean Society, International Relations in East Asia, Tourism and Recreation, Introduction to Sociology, and many other courses.

HISS also offers numerous field trips in and around Seoul.
