Film

Our Film programme is organised in conjunction with Berwick Film Society.

We have just concluded our Summer Film Series 2021, which was made up of three lectures:

Week 1: Dr. Jennifer Coates talking about the Golden Age of Japanese Cinema (1945-60)

Week 2: Dr. Martine Pierquin discussed Michael Haneke, one of today’s most compelling directors, focussing on Caché (Hidden, 2005).

Week 3: Dr. Pasquale Iannone talked about the multi-talented and ground-breaking Ida Lupino, film noir femme fatale and the first female Hollywood director.

You will find their presentations and additional material here:
