Film Studies


Our Film Studies Classes are aimed at all abilities and are informative in a fun and friendly atmosphere.   We look at film clips as well as studying directors and actors and the context of how and when the film was made.

Some courses will run as online courses and some will start at Stoke Lodge. You can see the starting venue/format for each course listed below. We reserve the right to change the format of the course, in term, should safety advice change.

We will watch 5 classic black comedies and will reflect on what are the best ingredients for a successful black comedy.We will watch and debate the following films: Carnage, After Hours, Delicatessen, A New Leaf, 8 Women. A few days before each session, you will be sent a link to a film you can stream for free or hire for a small fee. You will then meet as a group with Davide over ZOOM to discuss the film.
