*NEW* Cinéphile Mondays

July 27 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Cinephilia is an academic word literally meaning “love of cinema,” but it also contains hints of nostalgia and passion for a film art that was undoubtedly the defining media experience of the twentieth century.
As such, cinema has a variegated and fascinating history which extends well beyond the Hollywood we are all familiar with.  Meant as a tribute to the film art around the world, from the days of silent cinema to the new waves and beyond, our cinephile Mondays is a slow and tasteful appreciation of the First Century of Cinema.  The films will be selected on the basis of their relevance for the development of the film art.  On the last Monday of the month, cinephiles of the world unite! 

Watch a movie at home and then join Film history & Media studies Professor MV for a virtual discussion.

For Monday July 27 
we will be discussing:

1962 by Agnès VARDA (France)
The godmother of the French New Wave makes a film in which a woman moves from being an object to be looked at to being a subject who owns the look.

 

Available on KANOPY
