Description
philosophy-and-politics-in-film

10 sessions | 7pm - 9pm | Tutor: Mark Hopkinson | Broadstairs campus | £105

This is a course for thinking and talking about big ideas in provocative and inspiring films. We’ll look at theories and concepts from the related areas of philosophy and politics (e.g. existentialism, psychoanalysis, left/right political ideologies, postmodernism) and ask how they can help us understand complex and beautiful films like Her, Land and Freedom, The Seventh Seal, My Night at Maud’s, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Hiroshima mon Amour and Mulholland Drive. Sessions will be based around screenings of key scenes (not entire films) as well as discussion in small and large groups. There will be suggested readings which you can explore as much or as little as you have time and energy for.

This course will also run on Thursdays at the Canterbury Campus.
