課程綱要
電影的社會實踐Film As Social Practice
Movies are not merely a dream factory that provides moments of visual pleasure to be consumed. Neither are they merely an art form to be appreciated aesthetically. They are also a form of social practice that conveys and construct meanings. This course selects 16 films to discuss important social issues of our age, such as gender, race, nation, and the city. Students will do close analysis of the films and read articles about them. Those who intend to take this course are encouraged to read Film As Social Practice by Grayme Turner (or my translation 《電影的社會實踐》遠流出版)in the winter. Films to be discussed will include:
Gender: When Night is Falling《夜幕低垂》、Happy Together《春光乍洩》、Secret of My Flower《窗邊的玫瑰》、Red Rose.White Rose《紅玫瑰.白玫瑰》
Race and Class: A Passage to India《印度之旅》、Calendar《日曆》、The Talented Ripley、《天才雷普利》、Zelieg《變身人》
History and Nation: Farewell My Concubine《霸王別姬》、Puppet Master《戲夢人生》、Born on the Fourth of July《七月四日誕生》、Forrest Gump《阿甘正傳》
The City: The Terrorists《恐怖份子》、No Regret about Youth《青春無悔》、Brazil《巴西》、Run Lola Run《蘿拉快跑》
