Sorry, this course has been cancelled.
This course introduces major films and directors from East and South East Asia since the 1950s. From Kenji Mizoguchi’s The Life of Oharu (1952), to the recent Parasite by Bong Joon-Ho (2019), East Asian cinema depicts a compelling blend of distinct cultural traditions and film aesthetics. The course focus will be on key films from South Korea, Japan, China and South East Asia.
Please bring a pen and some paper for note-taking.
About the Speaker
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.
V Café at The Guildford Institute provides a friendly catering service using high quality, fresh, vegetarian and vegan ingredients.
The perfect way to give a treat to someone special who takes real pleasure in learning new things and taking part in great activities.
