Immerse yourself in an intellectual sojourn as we navigate the interplay between existential philosophy and the visual language of film, where the profound meets the poetic to forge a unique
tapestry of introspection and reflection. Following a now-familiar format, this course is built around a series of structured sessions involving screenings and guided discussion, and invites you to consider the ways in which different films engage key philosophical themes to challenge, expose or subvert social mores, reflect on the ineffable beauty of existence or posit the meaning of life. Films will include Ida (Pawel Pawlikowski, 2013), Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter…and Spring (Kim Ki-duk, 2003), Memento (Christopher Nolan, 2000), and The Tree of Life (Terence Malick, 2011).
