A Study Day at Guppy’s

[17 Nunnery Lane, York]

Saturday February 2nd 2019

1030 to 3.30 p.m.

The study film will be The Third Murder / Sandome no satsujin (2017)

Directed by Koreeda Hirokazu this title falls between After the Storm / Umi yori mo mada fukaku (2016) and Shoplifters / Manbiki kazoku (2018). The other two titles are primarily stories about families whereas this film seems to be a legal drama or thriller. So it is interesting to discuss to what degree the film share common thematic threads. That is, what matters most in this title, the auteur or author input or generic ones?

There is a coffee bar at Guppys. And there will be a break for lunch from 1.15 p.m. until 2.15 p.m. The other facilities are as usual. Note 2018 club membership will be valid for this event.
