THE REEL AND THE REAL: PHILOSOPHY OF FILM


What makes film unique? How has film changed the way we think and feel? Can film change the world? We explore philosophical questions asked about film since its rise in the early 20th century, covering Marxist, psychoanalytic, semiotic and cognitivist thought and such thinkers as Benjamin, Eisenstein, Bazin, and Deleuze.
