Major Filmmakers

A seminar on the films of avant-garde filmmaker Stan Brakhage. His work is very difficult, often silent, challenging, and for most Princeton students painfully boring. Don’t take this course casually! Most of Brakhage’s films do not exist on digital copies. Attendance at the Tuesday night screenings is required.

Sample reading list:
Brakhage, Metaphors on Vision, Telling Time, The Domain of Aura
See instructor for complete list

Reading/Writing assignments:
Seminar participation and screening attendance. Three short essays (maximum 5 pages each).
