Auteur Study: Steven Spielberg

FILM S4138

Summer 2017
Stuart Weinstock

Steven Spielberg may be the world’s most influential living film director. His uncanny grasp of visual storytelling and his auteurist signature can be found on every film he has directed, as well as many he has produced. This course will analyze the content and formal construction of Spielberg’s films by following their thematic through-lines – family ties (strained and healthy), the implacable threat, humanity at war, man vs. the natural world, the child’s perspective, and others – in films as disparate as Jaws and The Color Purple.
