silent era film research paper

Paper Prompt: You will write a 1200-1500-Word (approximately 4-6 page) paper focused on the discourse around a film from before 1930. This research assignment will require that you select a film from a period discussed in class. You may write about a (pre-1930) film that we watched clips of, but not one we screened. See the list of suggested films, along with links to streaming them on Kanopy, on the class Canvas site. You will find reviews, articles, and advertisements from the time of the film’s original release in order to understand the way the film was marketed and received at the time. If you would like to write about a film not on the list, please consult with your TA. Your paper should be informed by class readings and lectures, your screening of the film, and your primary research on the film.
