 YO23 1AB

Thursdays 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. from October 12th for nine weeks.

1917 sees the anniversary of The Great October Revolution. One of the happy outcomes of the  Revolution was a new, vital and influential cinema. The course will offer the opportunity to discuss some of the classic films, starting with examples from the Silent period of  the 1920s and also studying examples of later sound film.

The choice of films will be negotiated with the students.

The tutor has a long running interest in and experience of Soviet Cinema. He will

provide background on the films, including some of the technical aspects and contextual issues.

There is limited access for disabled. The Centre has a bar for refreshments.
