課程概述

Film and Literature is an elective for third- and fourth-year students. This course aims to help the students contextualize the relationships between cinematic language and literary writing. By studying the texts of Sense and Sensibility, The English Patient, and The Hours, the students get to explore the themes and imageries of the novels first, and then venture to see how three internationally renowned movie directors visualize the stories. This is a course that enriches the students’ literary and visual experiences. Towards the end of the semester, the students will be encouraged to write a short story and make a short film out of it.
