In A New Light
combines lectures and film screenings to help you get more out of movies.
The course consists of 6 lectures, each lecture being followed by a movie screening. This is a new course, organised by Berwick Educational Association, and will take place in Berwick-upon-Tweed on 6 different Wednesday afternoons between September and November 2017.
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 film noir, expressionism and neo-realism, 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.
