Description: The Film Experienceis a comprehensive introduction to film that treats students as the avid movie fans they are while surpassing all other texts in helping them understand the art form's full scope, breadth, and depth. Like other introductory texts, it offers strong coverage of film's formal elements, but goes further by situating this formal knowledge in the larger cultural contexts that inform the ways that we all view film. The authors' rich narrative integrates the cultural history of film throughout and demonstrates how the elements, practices, economics, and history of the medium contribute to a film's many possible meanings. The outstanding art program now in full color visually reinforces all the key concepts and techniques discussed in the text.
