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:

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