Avant-Garde Cinema (Sept. 23)

This week, our class viewed The Seashell and the Clergyman by Germaine Dulac.  At first, I was taken aback by the film because it was similar to the other films we’ve viewed in the class.  The only difference I noticed was that it had a longer running time.  My professor sent us an email to think of a dream we’ve had for our next class, then I began to think outside of the box.  I sort of forced myself to think and interpret things more creatively.  I rewatched The Seashell and the Clergyman and noticed that most of the film is in a dream-like state itself.
