 In A New Light

is returning for a second season, starting in September 2018.

The course consists of 6 lectures, each lecture being followed by a movie screening. 

In the lectures,

we look at the techniques used by the great film-makers to tell a story, 

we look at some of the distinctive cinematic styles, such as melodrama, French New Wave and the New American Cinema of the seventies, and

we consider how cinema both reflects and influences the cultural and political status quo.

Each lecture is followed by the screening of a movie which illustrates and enriches the lecture content.
