  • Instructor: Paul Marasa
    Time: Monday-Friday 9:00 AM-12:00 PM
    Knox Credits: 1.0

    Course Description: The term "magic realism" was coined by art critic Franz Roh in 1925 to describe paintings that react against the distortions of expressionism by producing realistic works that, as Roh states, "approach the ultimate enigmas and harmonies of existence" in order to convey "the calm admiration of the magic of being." Soon after, writers in South and Central America produced the more familiar "magical realism," which presents a hybrid world in which the real and the unreal cohabit. This course examines both these trends as incorporated in cinema, from the "deadpan" silent comedy of Buster Keaton to the fantasy/genre films of Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water), from the shadowy netherworld of film noir to the alternate realities of Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), in an effort to understand cinema's sometimes-overlooked role in the development and continuing popularity of magic(al) realism.
