The Cinema Group was created with the aim of furthering participants’ knowledge of film. Through a selection of motion pictures covering different genres and styles, the group examines the plot, soundtrack, making of and the most iconic scenes, and reflects at length on the message the films convey.
The sessions are structured as follow: they will begin with a brief introduction of the film by the group coordinators. Then, after watching the film, the participants are invited to make comments and share their impressions.
The coordinators are Oscar Sueiro, technical manager of the Digital Media Studios (DMS), and Geoffrey Cowper, film director and lecturer in the Faculty of Communication. Both are regular contributors to film festivals and magazines.
All films will be screened in their original language, with subtitles.
