The Magic of Cinema III

6 Tuesdays, beginning September 11, 2018. 1:00 ~ 4:00 pm.

Lecturer: Tom Shoebridge

This time we will explore the social reality in fictional film stories.  Filmmakers always reveal more than they intend.  The job of the informed viewer is to pick and interpret the clues, or ’see’ the unseen.  Tragedy or comedy, all films shine light into the corners of the universal human experience.

  1. The Heat of the Night (1967)
  2. La Cage aux Folles (1978)
  3. Shine (1996)
