Film

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

Our Summer Film Series 2021 is made up of three lectures, May 27, June 3 and June 10, all at 5 pm.

Week 1: We’re delighted to welcome Dr. Jennifer Coates as a BEA lecturer. Jennifer will be talking about the Golden Age of Japanese Cinema (1945-60), featuring directors such as Kurosawa, Ozu and Mizoguchi.

Week 2: Martine Pierquin will discuss the cinema of Michael Haneke, one of today’s most compelling directors, focussing on Hidden. The Guardian describes it as “perhaps his masterpiece, Hidden, that eerie and disturbing suspense nightmare,…. about the nagging doubt in the mind of the west that its placid postwar prosperity is teetering on a cliff edge.”

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