This spring’s class continues Evanston’s love affair with the motion picture industry — its stars, its stories, and its continually evolving production techniques that, when properly and artistically combined, produce movies widely acclaimed for their ability to entertain us, often from one generation to the next. Our class is structured in a way that allows us to first watch the selected movie, then discuss it from a variety of angles, including histories of the key actors, actresses, and directors, as well as their work in other movies scheduled for the spring session. We will be viewing films directed by four of the movie industry’s best known and most- awarded directors: Steven Spielberg, Ingmar Bergman, Clint Eastwood, and Martin Scorsese. We anticipate that two of the films will be foreign language films with English subtitles. Due to the lengths of the movies, which occasionally exceed two hours, this class traditionally meets two hours and 45 minutes to allow for robust discussion. We invite you to join us in experiencing the magic of movies.
