Drama in film is a major element that makes for compelling viewing. A dramatic film shows us characters at their best, their worst, and everything in between. These films are easy to relate to as they are serious representations of real-life situations and stories. Covering a broad spectrum of critically-acclaimed films, this course will focus on the cinema of Europe, the UK, Asia and South America over the last 50 years. Featuring clips from the films of classic and modern day directors, such as Alfred Hitchcock, Carol Reed, Terence Davies, Mike Leigh, François Truffaut, Céline Sciamma, Ruben Östlund, Thomas Vinterberg, Hirokazu Koreeda and Lee Chang Dong.
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.
