Event description

Description

FILMS AGAINST FASCISM, MOVIES OF MUTINY
Malic Amalya
8 sessions >> Tuesdays, February 20–April 10
6:30-9:30 pm, Studio 25, $385
Prerequisite: Recommended for students with prior filmmaking experience. Students are expected to have their own video camera (smart phones are okay) and know the basics of editing on Premiere.


Political movements organize demonstrations to raise awareness, voice dissent, and demand change. Meanwhile, politically engaged art uses aesthetics to infiltrate discourse, incite critical analysis, and find new perspectives. Within this eight-week class, you will create a short experimental video that draws inspiration from revolutionary acts while working in the language of experimental cinema.

We will investigate political issues in recent US history that has provoked both protest and artistic response. Taking an intersectional approach, readings and discussions will examine US imperialism, white supremacy, capitalism, hetero-patriarchy, and legacies of European colonialism. Films screened in class addresses the impact of state violence and institutional oppression within the prison industrial complex, climate change, war and torture, the AIDS epidemic, and the art world. Class time will alternate between screenings, discussion, script development, editing, and critique.
