Anatomy of Cinema: How Movies Move Us

Anatomy of Cinema: How Movies Move Us

Anatomy of Cinema is now at capacity and SOLD OUT.

When we watch a film, the experience tends to wash over us. We pay attention to the story and recognize its effect, but we may not notice techniques that move us—the underlying anatomy that makes up each film. In a series of eight two-hour sessions, Vanderbilt faculty members in Cinema & Media Arts lead interactive discussions on the primary categories of film technique and the aesthetic experience of the moving image.
