Overview

Childhood and family have been the subjects of film for as long as the medium has existed. From Europe to Asia, the Americas, Africa and beyond, films about children and family have opened up windows into which we can better understand a place, its culture, and its people. This course will focus on critically acclaimed films such as Victor Erice’s Spirit of the Beehive, Andrea Arnold’s Fishtank, Louis Malle’s Au Revoir les Enfants, and other cinematic gems by Hirokazu Koreeda, Francois Truffaut, Satyajit Ray, Clio Barnard and Lasse Halstrom.

About the Speaker

Steven Moonan

stevenmoonan@hotmail.com

Steven Moonan has been teaching for 20 years and first taught in Taiwan in 1999 as a TEFL Teacher, then South Korea, China and Mexico. On returning to England in 2010 he got a place on the MA Fine Art course at Kingston University, where he specialised in making non-narrative short films. It was also at Kingston University where he completed his Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education.

Steven currently teaches Film studies at The Guildford Institute as well as a variety of arts courses at Guildford Adult Learning Centre. Steven has been passionate about film and world cinema ever since a film obsessed photography tutor at Wigan college (when he was 18) used to show full screenings of films by projecting original film reels onto a wall. The films Steven has covered at the Institute over the last year have been a broad spectrum from Asia, South America, Europe and beyond. It’s a subject he loves to teach and he feels there is so much that a film can teach us about a place and it’s people.
