Key topics of narrative, editing, sound, mise-en-scene, cinematography, and the studio system are studied in this historical context. The film theory component of the course presents a study of the key theories, including genre theory, auteurism, the classic text, gender, psychoanalysis, entertainment, and new media theory, that have informed film aesthetics and the history of the cinema.
