Description

  • Food & Drink, Something A Little Different and Theatre/Arts
  • Digbeth
  • Over 18
  • Sat, 11th Jun 2016 @ 10:00 - 12:00
  • 10:00 - 12:00

This morning workshop offers an insight into cinema from other cultures, in languages other than English (especially French, but with other examples). Together, we will explore some key terms and briefly discuss three important films that our team have recently shown to the Birmingham public: Black Shack Alley, Frantz Fanon: Black Skin White Mask and Waiting for Happiness.

Come and think about what these films and cultural questions mean to you, and share these thoughts in an informal and friendly setting, guided by researchers who work in these fields.

The workshop is likely to be relevant to anyone with interests in ONE or MORE of these topics: Film, Postcolonial cultures, French & Francophone cultures. Participants are welcome to leave after 12 noon, or to enjoy a free post-workshop lunch in the Mockingbird’s informal bistro (meat or veg. option available).

This public workshop has been made possible through generous funding from the Arts & Humanities Research Council Cultural Engagement fund.

*Places are limited, so please reserve you place now to avoid disappointment*

This theatre and bar offers so much for anyone's food, drink and entertaining…
