        Code : BA/19-EX 01
        Level : 2ème partie Ba
        Description : Description of the module: a critical review of certain questions and issues specific to the cinema as a medium (its relationship with reality for example), in-depth study of concepts related to its language or its working processes (film editing, film production, time dimensions, etc.), approaches to cinema-related discourse (criticism, theories of film-makers) starting from the place of the cinema in contemporary artistic practices and its interconnections with those practices (reciprocal effects) due to its mixture of codes and its figurative nature. The questions of representation, the visual nature of the medium, and movement are studied. As with other modules, the seminar courses proposed are not purely theoretical, but rather there is an interaction between theory and aesthetic questions (Film Analysis III) and historical questions (History II).
      • History II (Cinema) - M11149 - Facultative - Credits: 10.00 - Evaluation mode: Evaluation par quota

        Code : BA/19-EX 02
        Level : 2ème partie Ba
        Description : Description of the module: historical knowledge of periods, currents, directors, and moments of world cinema history. Broadening the view of the links that exist between History and the Cinema beyond questions of representation (History in Films). History is therefore considered not just as "content", but above all as the locus of production, and as a social discourse and practice. This broader view makes it possible to apply to the cinema phenomenon the yardsticks of other methodologies or to take other disciplines as the starting point, with “detours” that nourish and renew its study. This research of a historical nature does not however negate the importance of theory, which is an integral part of reflection on History.
      • Film Analysis III - M11150 - Facultative - Credits: 10.00 - Evaluation mode: Evaluation par quota

        Code : BA/19-EX 03
        Level : 2ème partie Ba
        Description : Description of the module: in-depth study of the aesthetic knowledge and image analysis skills introduced in the "Film Analysis II" module. The seminar courses proposed also belong to the "History" and "Aesthetics" modules, so as not to isolate aesthetics from the other fields of study. The teaching is focused in part on film analysis and in part on concrete historical and theoretical issues tied to a specific subject. This module therefore strives to provide training in the reading of films and knowledge of the cinema in its anthropological, social, historical, psychological, scientific, semiotic and artistic dimensions.
