Class Experience

Students will learn about horror/thriller tropes, expectations, and how Korean cinema expertly handles inverting expectations.
In addition to having a Masters in English, and a second Masters in Education, I have lived and taught English in South Korea. I have been an avid fan of Korean cinema for over 10 years.
Students must watch the film BEFORE class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No grade.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that the movies watched in this course are PG-13, TV-14, 16+, and R, with most of them being R. If you are concerned about your child watching PG-13, TV -14, or R rated movies, you can watch the movie trailer, pre-watch the movie yourself, check the synopsis on Wikipedia, and/or go to Common Sense Media to see what might be in the movie that could be concerning for your child. If you are uncomfortable with your child watching a particular movie, please skip that week and rejoin for a different movie on a subsequent week. 

Our discussions will be focused on theme, tone, common (or uncommon) tropes, story structure, camera angles/shot construction, effectiveness, and other filmmaking techniques. Occasionally, sensitive topics might come up if the movie addresses them. We will have constructive discussions around these sensitive topics regarding how they relate to the film and society at large.
