Women have been successful in the film industry as writers, editors, and even as producers. But the female director is a special breed. She has to be a little braver, a little bolder, a little more persistent, in order for her voice to be heard. In this course we will visit some of the unique works from women who have written and directed films, from the very early works of pacesetter, Ida Lupino, to modern-day marvels like the ever-innovative and engaging Sally Potter. Beware! A woman behind the camera, whether she is a screenwriter, or a director, or both, is a wondrous thing. Led by Film Studies Coordinator Diane Thelen

 


Halloween Special Course - Drácula (1931)
October 31, 2017
Tuition $15 Members ($35 Non-Members)

1:30 p.m.

7:00 p.m.



Join us on All Hallows’ Eve to view this rare and provocative piece of cinema history. In the early days of Hollywood, films were made for the English-speaking markets in the daytime, but alternate versions were made for Spanish-speaking markets at night – using the same script, the same costumes, the same sets, but different stars and different crews. Many of these are now lost to history, but one gem remains … the Spanish language version of the original 1931 Dracula. Many critics regard this version, with its better camerawork, extra story length, and Latin flair, to be superior. Come haunt the Museum for this unusual Halloween treat. This is a restored, HD version of the film; Spanish with English subtitles.

 


Secrets and Lies: Stories of Real People During Wartime

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.


Nearly 70 years have passed since the events of World War II, and even more time has elapsed since “The Great War.” Yet today, perhaps more than ever before, the subject matter still fascinates people all over the world, and we remain engaged in this topic. New books and new films are emerging, just when we think there is nothing more to be said. We continue to hear of previously untold events, large and small. We can sense an increasing urgency that these narratives not be left unspoken. In this course, we’ll take a look at some of the newer films about people’s wartime experiences, as well as some earlier overlooked storytelling on this ever-important theme. Led by Film Studies Coordinator Diane Thelen
