University offers European cinema evening course

An evening course examining contemporary European cinema will run at the University of Kent during the spring and is open to members of the public.

The course will look at links between cinema, politics and society in Europe, with films shown from Spain, Italy, France, Austria and Denmark. Each session will be led by academics from the University’s School of European Culture and Languages to provoke debate and discussion on the films watched and the themes they explore.

One of the films that will be shown, called Three Days of Anarchy and set in Sicily at the end of the Second World War, will be presented at the University by its director, Vito Zagarrio, on 20 March.

All films will be screened in their original language with English subtitles.

The course will run start on 6 March and run until 15 May on alternate Tuesday evenings from 18.00-21.00pm in the Grimond building on the Canterbury Campus. The course costs £99 and places can be booked online or emailing Jackie Fotheringham.
