Writing and film-making are intricately connected activities. Books are made into films. Films have their genesis in the written word as screen-plays, treatments, synopses and pitches, and are written about in reviews, critiques, analyses, histories and promotions. They also inspire writing in the form of creative responses in poetry, novels, plays and blogs. Films from a diverse range of genres, cultures and historical periods will be interpreted using a combination of cultural and film theory. The unit engages students in the interplay between writing and film whereby, through the production of critical and creative responses to films, students learn to interrogate cinematic representation and to hone their skills in writing for, about and back to film.
