For the last few years on Thursday evenings from 7-8.30pm, via ZOOM we have been looking at cinema in all its diversity with the brilliant Luke Maxted of the English department.  

Each week is a different topic - a star, a director, a nation, a theme  - and we look at two films in advance . Luke prepares slides and clips to give cinematic context, and then we discuss the films . Coming up this half term we have, for example,  the French colonial films of Claire Denis,  Cuban Cinema, Soviet Hitchcock (Topaz and Torn Curtain) and the Marx Brothers. Next term's topics include Jane Campion, cinema of Chad and Senegal, biblical epics  and Michael Cinimo - before and after Heaven's Gate.

It's £200 for a 10 session term ( pro rata if you join late) with the profits going to the Bursary Fund. If you would like a free taster session, please e mail me - gay.search2@gmail.com.

Gay will send you the ZOOM link, and Luke will send you the slides before each class.
