A Show of Character: Visiting Some of Film's Finest Character Actors
September 30 - October 28, 2014

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.


Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.



They are in so many movies and we know them so well, we recognize them immediately, but we almost never know their names. They’re character actors, the supporting starts, the second bananas, the wise-cracking girlfriends, the tough guys who wouldn’t hurt a fly. This course will remind us and revisit some of the greatest, in a selection of films from the 1930s through to the 21st Century. Learn about some of cinema’s most memorable actors through some of their most interesting performances. Led by Diane Thelen, Film Studies Instructor.

     

 

Remembering Philip Seymour Hoffman: A Unique Life in Film
November 4 - December 2, 2014

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.



On screen, Philip Seymour Hoffman was a presence that would not be ignored. He was a force of nature, yet modest and unassuming in demeanor. He learned his craft by observing other actors as well as from his own life’s tests and lessons. He tackled many different genres, and never backed away from any acting challenge. This course will revisit some of his greatest performances, many of which came in films that were somewhat overlooked. Led by Diane Thelen, Film Studies Instructor.

January 6 - February 3, 2015

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.


They paint, they collect, they see with passions larger than life. Who are these people? What motivates them? This series of fiction and documentary features not only explore these kinds of questions, they entertain and sometimes amaze with their insight and the characters at their centers. It illuminates the lives of some extravagantly talented artists, at the same time offering tantalizing clues as to what drove (or drives) them. Led by Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator.

 

 

Trends in International Cinema: Life Styles
February 10 - March 10, 2015

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.


This grouping of films will give us a sense of the ideas and images preoccupying filmmakers around the world. Included will be seldom-seen international festival winners – audience favorites all – as well as a tiltle or two that may have flown in under the radar. We can expect them to feature brilliant photography, outstanding acting, and offbeat stories. Led by Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator.

 
Learning the Hard Way: Romance and Reality in Recent French Cinema
March 17 - April 14, 2015

Tuesdays 1:30 p.m.

Tuesdays 7:00 p.m.



Film trilogies can be hard to resist. And in this course we’ll sample two of France’s most recent and most irresistible. First, we’ll take the measure of Cedric Klapisch’s “Globalization” trilogy, begun in 2002 with L’Auberge Espagnole, then continuing with Russian Dolls (2006) and concluding with Chinese Puzzle (2013). Next we’ll turn to Daniel Auteuil’s exceptional effort to remake all of the films of legendary French writer-director Marcel Pagnol, and the first two of his classic Marseilles Trilogy, Marius and Fanny (the third installment has yet to be released). Led by Warren Obluck, Film Studies Coordinator.

The Museum Cafe/Catering by Adrienne Drew will be open for Film Studies students to enjoy lunch beginning October 19.
