Film History I: 1880-1945

This course traces the history of motion pictures from 1880 to 1945 through a critical examination of the technical, aesthetic, social, political, and economic factors that had an impact on this emerging art form. It explores the cinema from its conception as an entertainment novelty, through major international movements of the silent era, to the development of the American studio system, the transition to sound, and the effect of two world wars.
