Ever wanted to dig deeper into your favorite films and genres? Now is your chance to sign up for Northwest Film Forum Sunday School! This class will help you acquire the skills to talk about films both critically and analytically, learning more about the language of cinema.
For this 4-week series, the topic is HORROR films! Horror gives us a unique opportunity to talk about what we're afraid of and what we believe in (as individuals and as a culture), and it is one of the most stylistically daring genres. We'll look at world and Hollywood classics and recent works, exploring different ways of "reading" film.
Each Sunday session will consist of two parts: film screening and discussion. For the first half of the sessions, we will watch movies together, keeping in mind the historical context of the films. In the second half of the sessions, we will have discussions and in-depth readings of the films. Students will be provided with some light reading material to better discuss certain concepts or possible problems seen in the films. Please bring a bagged lunch.
These sessions are organized for teenagers who are interested in film analysis and history. Students will be encouraged to to express their thoughts, ideas, and readings of the films in a fun and welcoming environment.
