One of the most compelling filmmakers of the 20th Century is the subject of this one-day course. The day is split between the films of the early period (up to Dr. Strangelove) and those to his untimely death (including Eyes Wide Shut). Using a variety of philosophical reflections on film, we’ll deal with issues from the ontology of the medium to morality and film.
