Particular thematic exploration of films

Particular thematic exploration of films

topic: Particular thematic exploration of films

In
a 7-10 page typewritten essay, using MLA standards for formatting and style, analyze one of
the following general topic categories, choosing your own focus in consultation
with me:

a.
A
film movement (New Wave, left bank; New German, Japanese New Wave);

b.
A
filmmaker and their career as it intersects with film and national/global
history.

(Remember this is NOT an auteur class, so
lean on the course textbook and other readings/lecture and explore further);

c.
A
particular thematic exploration across a number of films explored in class:
this might

be any number of thematic categories, but an obvious
one would be how the “New Wave” might be translated in various contexts
presented in class or the way filmmakers

influenced each other.

In
this essay, use at least three substantial sources from course readings and
find one additional scholarly source. Total citations: 8. NO
WEBSITES, NO ROTTEN TOMATOES, ENCYCLOPEDIAS, NOTHING BUT SCHOLARLY
ESSAYS/ARTICLES/BOOKS.

Do
not repeat response paper texts, but you can draw on them selectively (when you
do, cite your response paper as a source, but it will not count towards the
citation requirement total).

Remember:

No
plot summary.

No
extensive biographical details.

This
essay must reflect course concerns. If it does not, it will fail.

Rubric:

25%     Adhere to assignment guidelines;

30%     Display knowledge of course materials of all kinds, including lecture;

30%     Quality of citations and argumentation;[1]

15%     Grammar and style/formatting[2]

Endnotes:

[1] Your choice of quotes or paraphrase is meant to
show you knowledge of the readings and ability to choose the best
quotes/information possible. In other words, to cite purely informational
information is a substandard use of materials, as is choosing all quotes from
one page in one article. Use footnotes, as well, to make statements qualifying
your main points or your use of quotes, citing, even, another author (or the
lecture!) to show an opposing view, for example, or to open up an issue which
is otherwise ambiguous.

[2] If you have questions about this, consult the writing
center and the library home page with multiple links to MLA formatting issues/and
manual, as well as live people to help!
