What makes cinema a distinct form of artistic expression? If you want to explore the aesthetics and history of film, this is the place to start. PFA and the UC Berkeley Film Studies Program co-present the film-lecture course Film 50, now celebrating its sixteenth year. An undergraduate course designed for non–film majors, Film 50 is open to the public as space permits. This year’s course, taught by Marilyn Fabe, illustrates the development of narrative and genre, with a special focus on the cinematic depiction of dreams and altered states of consciousness. Students learn to view film as a complex picture language and to understand how it articulates narrative, psychological, social, and ideological themes.

Special admission prices apply: $11.50, general admission; $7.50, BAM/PFA members; $5.50, UC Berkeley students; $8.50, seniors, disabled persons, UC Berkeley faculty and staff, non–UC Berkeley students, and youth 17 and under. Programs often sell out, so we strongly recommend advance tickets, which are available at the PFA box office, the BAM admissions desk, online at bampfa.berkeley.edu, or charge-by-phone (510) 642-5249.
