NORDIC NIGHTS – A Six-Week Evening Course on Nordic Cinema

March 6 – April 10 2018

Nordic crime, Vikings, minimalist style, and hygge – influences from the Nordic countries can be seen across culture and lifestyle choices. In cinema, while the shadows of Bergman and Dreyer may be long, filmmakers from the region have developed their own distinctive styles.

Throughout the Nordic countries, TV and cinema is yielding diverse work, often dark-tinged, absurd or snow-bound but with strong, multifaceted characters delivering complex and questioning narratives. This short course will look at samples of cinema from the region.

The course will run on consecutive Tuesdays, commencing at 18.30 unless otherwise stated. Order of screenings may vary slightly. Tickets €80 (including tea/coffee) for complete course (€75 conc.) Film tickets not individually sold.
