*NEW* Cinéphile Mondays
June 29 @ 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 June 29
we will be discussing:
Rashomon 1950 by Akira KUROSAWA (Japan)
First Asian film to make a big hit in the West and Academy Award winning, Rashomon’s take on the relativity of truth is so famous that the expression “Rashomon effect” was created.
