    Course start date:  Tue 1 Apr 2025

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Paul Sutton
    Christopher Nolan is that rare thing: a director working in Hollywood who makes cerebral big budget blockbusters. You will doubtless know him for Oppenheimer (2023), Tenet (2020), Dunkirk (2017), Interstellar (2014), Inception (2010), Batman Begins (2005), and Memento (2000). But it wasn’t always thus. There was a time when Nolan was a UK-based filmmaker and scriptwriter producing rather different cinematic fare. Join us as we chart Nolan’s journey to the Hollywood big time. We will explore his key films and consider the aesthetic and intellectual legacy of his oeuvre.
