Price: FREE (includes refreshments and lunch) – refundable £10 deposit required

Born of a collaboration between a European Union funded Erasmus+ project on Cinema and Hospitality and Broadway Cinema, this one-day course will explore the response of contemporary European fiction and documentary films to migration. In a world where migrants and refugees are either condemned to invisibility or forced into visibility on others’ terms (as objects for rejection or compassion), cinema has the power to ask us to see differently, to put ourselves in others’ shoes and to open a space for normally silenced voices. But it is also limited by its genres and forms and inequalities of access to filmmaking, distribution and exhibition. These are some of the issues that will be explored during the day using a fascinating range of important films such as ONCE, FIRE AT SEA, HUMAN FLOW and GOD'S OWN COUNTRY. The day will end with a free screening of THE MOVEMENT followed by a discussion of the issues raised in the film. Lunch will be provided. The course will be led by Martin O’Shaughnessy, Professor of Film Studies at Nottingham Trent, and Professor Ana Manzanas Calvo of the University of Salamanca but will also involve other invited participants.

Tutor: Martin O’Shaughnessy
Duration: One day course SAT 27 APR, 10.30AM-4.30PM
Price: FREE (includes refreshments and lunch) – a £10 deposit is required to secure a place which will be returned on arrival.
