Rich in dreamlike texture and pondering atmosphere, the season showcases representations of city spaces where the connection between urban, filmic and narrated vividly emerges. Curated as part of the Film Studies, Programming and Curation MA, this four-part programme is framed as a conversation between the audience and cinema by way of the city.
With screenings taking place on the 12th, 13th, 19th and 20th of November 2022 at Close Up Film Centre, and featuring a booklet with essays on the films, introductions and Q&As with the directors, the season invites us to reflect on our experience of city living, and on the way we conceive what a city is. Hence, cinema is employed as the visual language that captures the essence of these cities, making them visible.
“With cities, it is as with dreams…their rules are absurd, their perspectives deceitful, and everything conceals something else.”Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
