New Realism: Contemporary British Cinema – Dr David Forrest
Mon, 19 October 5:00pm
The tradition of British realism has changed dramatically over the last 20 years through the films of directors such as Shane Meadows, Andrea Arnold, Duane Hopkins, Joanna Hogg, Clio Barnard. It embraces lyrical, often ambiguous encounters with place, where the physical processes of lived experience, interacts with the rhythms of everyday life. This talk challenges existing debates about realism and explores in depth this important new tradition in British cinema.
