    Workshop

    Cinéma et Société :  L’Age d’or du cinéma français,  Les années 30. 
    Avec Hélène Laroche Davis, PhD 

    Pourquoi l’âge d’or du cinéma français, malgré la grande dépression de 1929? 
    L’art des cinéastes a transcendé le spectacle d’un peuple souffrant en un style poétique, le “Réalisme Poétique”. 
    C’est aussi le passage du cinema muet au parlant. 

    Ensemble nous allons explorer comment la réalité est transfigurée par la fiction et la poésie de Marcel Pagnol, Jean Renoir, Jean Cocteau, Marcel Carné…,   

    Nous ferons la connaissance des acteurs  fétiches de l’époque: Jean Gabin, Arletty, Michèle Morgan et discuterons les films: FANNY, LA BELLE ET LA BETE, PEPE LE MOKO, LA REGLE DU JEU… 

    Rejoignez-nous pour débattre et développer ensemble une réflexion critique sur la société de l’entre deux guerres et sa représentation au cinéma.

    Atelier - L'âge d'or du cinéma français : les années 30 - IN PERSON

    Workshop

    Cinéma et Société :  L’Age d’or du cinéma français,  Les années 30. 
    Avec Hélène Laroche Davis, PhD 

    Pourquoi l’âge d’or du cinéma français, malgré la grande dépression de 1929? 
    L’art des cinéastes a transcendé le spectacle d’un peuple souffrant en un style poétique, le “Réalisme Poétique”. 
    C’est aussi le passage du cinema muet au parlant. 

    Ensemble nous allons explorer comment la réalité est transfigurée par la fiction et la poésie de Marcel Pagnol, Jean Renoir, Jean Cocteau, Marcel Carné…,   

    Nous ferons la connaissance des acteurs  fétiches de l’époque: Jean Gabin, Arletty, Michèle Morgan et discuterons les films: FANNY, LA BELLE ET LA BETE, PEPE LE MOKO, LA REGLE DU JEU… 

    Rejoignez-nous pour débattre et développer ensemble une réflexion critique sur la société de l’entre deux guerres et sa représentation au cinéma.

    Cet atelier est animé par Hélène Laroche-Davis, PhD

     
    5 Mondays from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
