This study day is an ideal introduction to French cinema both for students starting AS and for current AS students moving to A2. Conducted in French and English, the morning session’s clip-based talk will introduce a wide range of films, offering ideas relating to the film aspect of all specifications. Auteurs’ films – by Chabrol, Malle and Truffaut – will feature alongside modern classics like Jeunet’s Amélie and Kassovitz’ La Haine. Historical issues will be explored through Le Dernier Métro, Les Choristes and Le Grand Voyage. In the afternoon session there will be an introduced screening of a film chosen by teachers with notes for further discussion. Students will also have the opportunity to discuss the films in French.
