Transcript Title: JAPANESE AUTEURS 
UC QTR Units - Division: 6.0 - Upper Division 
Course Description: This course explores what make Japanese film directors not mere metteur-en-scene but auteurs by surveying the visual forms and styles of their films as well as analyzing their preferred narrative concerns, contents and themes. It is not difficult to find auteurs in the Japanese cinema world: Mizoguchi Kenji, Ozu Yasujiro, Kurosawa Akira, and Oshima Nagisa are without doubt some of the representative Japanese auteurs who, commanding the absolute control over most stages of film-making, managed to create films with superlative characteristics in narrative, theme and visual style. Auteurs are film directors who have left in their work a kind of their own signature. Students should be able to recognize the signature of each auteur by the end of this course.
