Ken Kimmelman, Emmy award-winning filmmaker and Aesthetic Realism consultant, says about this upcoming class in his course “If It Moves, It Can Move You”: Opposites in the Cinema:
Audiences have been gripped by intense and exciting films about adventures on the high seas, with their tumultuous storms and unsettling calms. We see people yielding to and resisting the elements, but also struggling with each other, and sometimes with themselves. When a film about the sea is powerful, it shows, with fine cinematic technique, the complex human drama of good and evil in the midst of the mysterious and mighty forces of nature.
Some of the films I’ll be discussing in this class are: The Caine Mutiny, Billy Budd, Moby Dick
