From the folks who brought you Ciné International, now comes a magnificent cinematic journey from“across the pond.” Join us as we examine British cinema from 1939-2015. Containing some of the finest filmmaking ever, each film selected received numerous awards and international recognition. Study group participants will watch the films at home. (All films are available both on DVD from NU and public libraries and via streaming). An analysis guide/outline will be emailed prior to each session. Utilizing discussion, videos and film clips, the group will conduct an analysis of the meanings contained within the film, the filmmaking techniques, and a special examination of the music. We will also compare the films with American movies. Study group members will be asked to provide a short background on the director and actors of each of the films we view. Planned Films (Subject to change): The Lady Vanishes; Brief Encounter; Black Narcissus; Third Man; The Ladykillers; Man for All Seasons; Sunday, Bloody Sunday; Life of Brian; Remains of the Day; Four Weddings and a Funeral; Another Year; The Bext Exotic Marigold Hotel; Brooklyn.
