In this subject, students explore a range of issues pertaining to sexuality and love as depicted in screen media. Students will engage with contemporary and historical films, canonical and emerging theory to consider matters such as gender representation and censorship, as well as the industrial and aesthetic concerns that influence what we see, and how we see it. Through critical reflection and analysis, students gain an in-depth understanding of how ever-shifting societal values concerning sex and love shape, and are in turn, shaped by the screen.
