What happens when you translate literature into a film? Is the book always "better" than the movie? What happens when a story crosses borders? This course explores the complex relationship between literature and cinema through the analysis of works from different genres: memoir (Happening, France), horror (The Ring, Japan), magical realism (Like Water for Chocolate, Mexico), science fiction (Blade Runner, US) and surrealism (Blow Up, Argentina/Italy/Great Britain). Our investigation will include socio-cultural context, narrative expression, use of point of view, role of the audience, etc. We will study the resources employed by each medium to deliver a particular message.
The Library provides access to a wonderful selection of print and electronic resources on a vast array of topics; if we don't have a title that you need, we can typically borrow it from another library nearby or across the country. Additionally, the library provides access to other resources like chargers, white boards, jigsaw puzzles and much more. We also offer welcoming and skilled library staff to help you with all your information needs.
