What you already need to know
This course is suitable for anyone interested in Italian Cinema, the language of film in general and the cultural and historical context connected to films. You do not have to be able to speak or understand Italian.
What you will learn
Each session will cover one period of Italian cinema:
Pre War / Neo Realism / Bicycle Thieves
Federico Fellini, Luchino Visconti
Antonioni, Spaghetti westerns, Sergio Leone
Ettore Scola and Contemporary cinema
How you will learn it
This is a real-time online course in which you will learn directly by watching film extracts with English Subtitles as well as through presentations and online resources. There will be ample space for discussion on films contexts and meaning.
What do I need to bring to the first session?
ACRES' online courses will be taught in real time using the video platform Google Meet, supported by other online resources. To ensure you get the most out of the course and can fully participate in the sessions you will interact with your tutor and other students through speaking, listening and the chat function, as well as being able to see each other via the video links, though you can turn off your camera and microphone at any time.
You will therefore need to have access to either a laptop, computer or portable device (eg tablet or phone) (this ideally needs to be less than 5 years old), with a camera / webcam and microphone, as well as a good broadband / Wi-Fi connection.
Though it is not essential, you may choose to create a separate email account for your online learning (preferably Gmail which is most compatible with Google Meet). This will give you the added security to allow you to share your email address with your tutor and other students on the course to enhance your learning experience, without disclosing your personal information.
At the start of the course and before each lesson your tutor will send you an invitation with a link to join the class and any further information including resources and equipment you will need for the lesson.
Materials and items you will need to do the course
Paper and pen
How much extra study or practice is involved?
