Film Club at the Poetry Café
Key 20th century classics: presented by John Wischmeyer
Every Monday at midday from 12 June – 10 July (5 weeks)
View classic films of the ‘modernist century’ that influenced film directors forever. These key films are transcendent works with an indefinable quality— but we will try to define them after viewings, discussion and debate. The intention of this course is to paint a complete picture of the first century of cinema, a world map of film history and key films and movements, stars and studios, directors and genres.
