  11. Cultureplex Ciné-club
    Evening
    Course start date:  Thu 22 Sep 2022 (and 2 other dates)

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  Paul Sutton
    Come and join us at the Cultureplex Ciné-Club, where once a week, for 12 weeks (and throughout the academic year), we will watch and discuss film. Taking its cue from the famous Parisian ciné-club set up by the celebrated critic and writer, André Bazin, ‘the single thinker most responsible for bestowing on cinema the prestige both of an artform and of an object of knowledge’, and the man who foresaw the emergence of film studies as a legitimate discipline of academic study, our contemporary incarnation of the film club will offer a curated series of films for detailed study, discussion and debate. Each film will be introduced, placed in both its cinematic, cultural and historic context. In sharing our viewing in City Lit’s premier screening room, the Cultureplex, we will approximate the experience of watching film in the cinema, one that is intense and fully focussed in a way that other modes of viewing often are not. After the screening we will devote the rest of the class to a collective exploration of the film, led by the tutor, but involving everyone in a participatory discussion that will allow all to express their responses, their views, their thoughts on the film screened.

    Course start date:  Thu 12 Jan 2023

    Location on this date:  Online

    Tutors:  Beatrice Ashton-Lelliott
    The recent popularity of Squid Game put Korean dramas (also known as K-dramas) in the spotlight for many international audiences, following on from the Hallyu or ‘Korean wave’, which began in the 1990s. Contemporary literature from South Korea, however, is also more accessible than ever before, with new authors in translation gaining fame amongst the likes of giants such as Han Kang. This 8-week online literature course looks at several of the most acclaimed translated Korean novels over the last few years and considers their common themes, such as LGBTQIA issues, gender roles and beauty standards, and the use of surrealist elements.
