A six-week evening course on the study of documentary film.
Open to all.
Following September’s IFI Documentary Festival, this Autumn’s Evening Course will focus on documentary, and feature a selection of key films in the genre. From humble origins, when the Lumière camera documented events as they were happening, the documentary genre has transformed. Filmmakers still set out to depict reality, but they add their own eye and their distinct motivation for telling a story. Covering a vast range of themes, documentary is now a complex film form with its own aesthetic and history. Our Evening Course will consider some of these aspects, in the context of the films screened. Please note: The course will run on consecutive Tuesdays, commencing at 6.30pm unless otherwise stated. Order of screenings may vary slightly.
