IDEOLOGY AND THE CINEMA

Dr. Roddy Flynn will offer a general introduction to cinema and ideology, through a screening of this shocking early feature from Michael Haneke in which two young men take a family hostage in their summer cabin.

Having talked about how Ideology operates in cinema in general, Roddy will discuss how Haneke’s film actively implicates the audience in the onscreen violence, forcing viewers to confront their preconceptions and ideas about how cinema works.

Full course price: €70 (€65 concessions), including tea/coffee. Please book your place by calling Sharon Corrigan on 01 679 5744 or emailing scorrigan@irishfilm.ie (individual tickets for films on this Course are not available.)
