Outer Space is the Place - Into the 1970's

Module C Continued...hippies, counterculture and ecology...with a wink towards French experimentation.

In class we will be watching two films (both on the shortish side).

1) La Jetée, 1962, French, Director Chris Marker - 28 minutes

2) Dark Star, 1974, American, Director(s) John Carpenter and Dan O'Bannon - 83 minutes

Both these films have in common highly independent production values - both are very low budget productions yet considered classics that have stood the test of time.

On reserve in the KC:

Watch Silent Running, 1972, American, Director Douglas Trumbull - 89 minutes

There is no reading from Liquid Metal this week, rather I want you to read and be prepared to discuss these various reviews and analysis of the films we will be viewing this week:

Review of Silent Running:


Analysis of La Jetee:


Analysis of Dark Star:

Print out these reviews and bring to class or on your laptop, ipad - be sure and have copies of each available for our discussion.
