Rick Winston presents:|
"Looking Closely at Movies"
Film appreciation seminars
in Montpelier and Calais!
Is it possible to enjoy films even more than we already do?
Using the work of American, European and Asian directors as examples, former Savoy Theater co-owner Rick Winston will present an inside view of the film-making process and an introduction to basic film vocabulary that will help sharpen our understanding of what is happening when we experience a film. We'll be watching many clips from Hollywood and foreign classics, studying the work of many directors.
Session #1: Basic film vocabulary; what does a director do?; the Silent Era and the evolution of cinematic language.
Session #2: Hollywood's "Golden Age" (Wilder, Wyler, Ford, Huston, Welles and others); foreign film directors of the 30s and 40s (Lang, Renoir, Carne) and the German influence on film noir.
Session #3: Master foreign directors of the 50s and 60s (Kurosawa, Bergman, Fellini) and how they influenced American filmmakers such as George Lucas, Woody Allen and Martin Scorsese.
In Montpelier: at the Vermont College of Fine Arts, from 6:30 to 9PM on Monday, November 10; Monday, November 17; and Monday, November 24.
In Calais: At the home of Barbara Weedon (Adamant Road), from 1:30 to 4PM on Saturday, December 13; Saturday, January 10; and Saturday, February 14.
