Description

This course examines the challenges and complexities of adapting literary texts (novels, short stories, plays, comics, anime, fairy tales, myths and legends) and historical events (biographies, autobiographies, memoirs, reportage) to the screen. In the process, students will reflect upon the differences between working in words and images, in writing for a verbal or visual-based medium. They will create their own adaptation of a selected text.
