And I’m probably going to be talking about it A LOT during the next 3 1/2 months.
Just thought you should know that little fact.
Here’s the course description:
Film and History: The Remake
How do films about historical figures and events differ from written versions? Why do Hollywood and the world’s film industries continually re-imagine the events of the past (there have been over 40 films made about Joan of Arc alone), and what do audiences enjoy in these films? Through readings, discussion, and film screenings we will examine the relationship between cinema and history.
What’s awesome is the book we use for the course was written by my professor. That makes the class 100 times more amazing.
And this is where I will be holed up for the next four years. If everything goes according to plan.
I think I might be a bit over excited.
