Supporting film in school curricula and promoting moving image culture for young audiences.
Our new programme kicks off with The Social Network, David Fincher’s account of the founding of Facebook. Jesse Eisenberg plays Mark Zuckerberg, the cold, calculated computer genius who knows exactly what he wants. His counter is Savarin (Andrew Garfield), the more sympathetic friend who makes the original investment. And then there’s Napster founder Sean Parker, a role in which Justin Timberlake excels. Yes, it’s only one version of the story, and undoubtedly there’ll be many more, but as it stands, The Social Network is a gripping and insightful account of the phenomenon that has changed how we communicate.
As ever, we welcome your requests or suggestions and look forward to seeing you during the term.
