Additional Course Details: 

695: Realism and its alternatives in art and film, a comparison of Renaissance and twentieth-century imagery and its commentary.  TR 5:10-6:30

Investigating the creation of imagery just shy of documentary, this course will include early Fellini and preceding pictures on the theme of performance, the history of realistic war imagery from Callot to the 1930 All Quiet on the Western Front and beyond, slow films that explore the elapse of real time and parallel investigations of temporality in 3- and 2-dimensional arts. Some 21st century work will be included and for contrast, some fantastical examples.
