Movies inside and out introduces students to the discussion in English of different approaches to the language of movies. What is a movie? It is a story related to an audience thanks to sound and image that together build towards an ending. A movie is a text.
Working in English with an experienced teacher as guide students are encouraged to develop an individual perspective on seeing a movie and to share their ideas in English during classroom sessions. Each class students are provided with a movie as a noteworthy example of a movie treatment of a particular theme such as comedy, crime or science fiction. Each genre is analyzed in terms of its take on the world.
After being a form of popular culture for much of the twentieth century movies have today become legitimate objects of mental inquiry. We therefore explore how issues that concern the audience of specific movies (i.e. heroic fantasy, suspense films, road movies) appear through the eyes of various filmmakers.
Students are expected to share an enthusiasm for movie watching and talking in English about films they love. By the end of the semester students will be able to talk and present a film of their choice during at least thirty minutes.
