My favorite part of the Film Studies minor is the fact that it has exposed me to so many different aspects of so many different cultures. In studying film, I've also indirectly studied history, anthropology, literature, etc. The path I've taken in the English major has become much more contemporary than I ever thought it would be, and I've been very pleased with that.
We took a tour of BMFI that was really interesting, and seeing Tenure being filmed right outside of my window was pretty cool as well.
At this point, no, but I would absolutely love it if things ended up that way.
Yes. My thesis is about Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter and Isabel Coixet's My Life Without Me as two examples of the cinema's unique ability to represent the overlap between life and death through image and sound.
It's been great; I kind of stumbled into it by accident during my freshman year - after being lotteried out of another class, I enrolled in Silent Film - but I'm so glad I did. The classes are getting more and more interesting every year as the program grows, and it almost makes me wish I could stick around.BACK TO STUDENTS
