New Hollywood, also termed “Post-classical Hollywood” or “American New Wave”, refers the period from the late-1960s to the early-1980s when a new generation of young filmmakers came to prominence in Hollywood, influencing the types of films produced, their production and marketing, and the way major studios approached filmmaking.
The director was acknowledged as the key authorial role (“auteur”) in New Hollywood films, which is the central idea that will be explored in the course.
