Sample Course

  • Cult and Independent Film (ART530)

This course examines various cult films and the cult film phenomenon. From the definition (or designation) of “cult” to the unusual yet vital role in society this non-genre fills, the cult film does not fit into traditional critical rhetoric. Instead, by being a marginalized area of film, the cult film and the audiences of this phenomenon deconstruct mainstream film entertainment and analysis.
