Movie Club

Club Leader: Joseph Henry Louis-Smith

Do you enjoy thinking about movies as much as watching them? In movie club, we will watch movies outside of class and discuss them in class and produce work related to the movie.

We will also work on a course long project with the goal of either:

1. Making a short film

2. Creating a podcast related to movies


3. Critiquing a scene from a movie. The movies have been chosen to provoke thoughtful discussion. Access to the movies will be provided before the start of the club

The movies we will watch are:
