Film Appreciation Study Group
CEDN Tuesdays 1400-1630 weekly from 15th Jan
Convener: Russell Stephings
We are a discussion group which aims to explore a spectrum of films not commonly shown in mainstream cinemas. We have recently been considering French New Wave and Post War German and Turkish and looked at the body of work of individual directors such as, Coen brothers, Robert Altman and John Schlesinger. Foreign language films have dominated our attention over the last two years and will be a significant part of our future plans, so it is important for participants to be able to enjoy sub-titled films on a small screen. The programme is decided by the group and each member takes a turn at presenting written information and leading a discussion of an individual film.
Our plans for the Spring Programme are a season of Indian films followed by a selection of films from the South American continent.
There is a waiting list to join this course, but expressions of interest would be welcomed
