Pemon Rami joins us this week to examine the visual language of film. 19 AND A DAY will screen and be followed by a discussion.

Aesthetics refers to “the philosophy of art” and seeks to answer the questions pertaining to the definition of art, what standards works of art can be judged, and its importance to human life. In our Film Aesthetics course, we will screen films with filmmakers to examine the visual art (language) of film & discuss the creative and production process.
