CINEMATIC SOCIETY - PERMISSION FORM


GOALS of THE CINEMATIC SOCIETY CLUB:


This club offers an introduction to the language and aesthetics of cinema, familiarizing students with the basic building blocks of film, the forms that movies use to tell stories, communicate complex ideas, and analyze and discuss social/cultural conflicts. It also introduces students to significant developments in film history and ways of approaching film interpretation. Throughout the year we will focus on detailed analysis of films, analyzing closely the ways in which the multiple elements of moviemaking come together to make, and complicate, meaning. Our primary goal in this club is to become skilled at thinking, talking critically about movies and, in the process, to deepen our appreciation and understanding of the film medium.


Because some of the films that we will be watching may have a PG13 or R rating, students will be required to have a PARENT PERMISSION form signed by a parent/guardian to participate in those particular sessions.


This permission form will allow your son/daughter to participate in the examination, viewing and discussion of any or all films viewed by the CINEMATIC SOCIETY.


Movies that are on queue for viewings: Citizen Kane, Psycho, Memento, Rope, City Lights, Godfather
