Major Works of the Cinema aims to provide the students with a general cinematic appreciation, cinema itself taken as one of the most effective artistic production fields of the 20th century. Given the very wide scope, genres and product of the cinema the course will be structured on a thematic base (history, thrillers, documentaries, politics, literature, interculturality) however will have a chronological base as well. Th films, the most crucial component of the course, will not only be analysed from a technical, cinematographic angle but will be situated and discussed through its interaction with the cultural background. The mythological, semiological and intertextual peculiarities of cinema both as a cultural and technical fact will also be exposed to the students. In addition to the existing pre-requisite " to have completed 23 credits" for this course , a new condition will be added as "to complete SPS 101 and SPS 102 courses at least with D grade" as of the Fall semester of 2015-2016 Academic Year.
