We decided to watch a film of our own choice during the month. During our scheduled Film as Literature class time, we will write up some thoughts about the film and share this with the rest of the class. This worked well for our April 8 time. There was a wide range of films watched and it was interesting to read about these. I would be interested in watching some if I can source them, and I am sure other member of the class would also be interested in following up on some of them. Films watched included Brassed Off, Arthur Newman, Bran Nue Dae, The Physician, The Stranger (a Netflix series), the new Phryne Fisher movie, Lion, and Shaun the Sheep. In general, the class members enjoyed the process and are interested in continuing until we can resume our usual class sessions.
Do you enjoy watching films? Do you find discussing films adds to your enjoyment? Do you find that you can better understand a movie by hearing and sharing thoughts about the film? We certainly do. At our Film Discussion classes we discuss a film we have watched during the month.
Films screened at the Benalla Cinema or at Swanpool provide a range of films that could be of interest.
Where upcoming films are known these may be discussed at the class to help select films to watch during the following month, and if several people see the same film, this can add to the depth of discussion.
