What stories and narratives are critical to expose future STEM leaders to in order to challenge their world view and broaden their conversations about the human condition? What are the great human stories and who are the great storytellers of our time? What is the science of narrative storytelling? What is the expressive language of motion pictures? Why is knowledge of narrative storytelling essential to all filmmakers and cinema scholars as well as scientists, innovators, designers and entrepreneurs? These questions we explore in the IMSA Film Studies Program.
The IMSA Film Studies Program is an applied learning experience with the purpose of inspiring innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in narrative storytelling and to broaden conversations about the human condition one film at a time. For the wider IMSA community, the program creates space for collective engagement through the practice of viewing, analyzing and making visual narratives about the world.
