This study day is an ideal introduction to German cinema both for students starting AS and for current A2 students. Conducted in German and English, the morning session offers a clip-based talk to introduce a wide range of German films, offering ideas for understanding the ‘world of cinema’ option of the new specifications and covering the main themes, social and political contexts of German cinema over the last few decades. German expressionist classics will feature alongside Wim Wenders’ films and modern favourites like Lola Rennt. In the afternoon there will be an introduced screening of a film chosen by teachers. Students will have the opportunity to discuss the film in German. A teachers’ resource pack with follow-on activities will also be provided.
