11am to 12pm, 17 March, online

From The Lady From Shanghai (1947) and Singin’ In The Rain (1952) to The Conversation (1974) and Blade Runner (1982), we will compare not only the aesthetic and narrative features of the two filmmaking eras, but also the ideological perspectives, focusing particularly on representation of gender. We will also be making connections with the industrial, social and historical contexts for the films’ production.

Students will be presented with examples that reveal how both eras provided auteur directors the opportunity to make signature films, and the importance of these in wider filmic contexts.
