Filming the Future: SciFi Cinema

Bryan Luther

Science fiction films reflect and shape our hopes and fears about the future. In this course we will explore the historical, cultural, scientific, political and aesthetic dimensions of science fiction cinema from the 1930s to today. Bladerunner, Alien, Minority Report, and 2001: A Space Odyssey are among the films we will study. OC
