Loyola at a Glance
New film series class explores cinemas of the future
December 7, 2012
A new class for the spring semester is more like a mini film festival with a unique lineup. The one-credit Introduction to the Worlds of Cinema film series class taught by Loyola University New Orleans English visiting professor Sarah Hamblin, Ph.D., will give students a look at how different cultures and directors interpret the future through the movies they make.
Each class will feature the screening of a cutting-edge movie complete with an introduction by a different Loyola professor each week. The lineup includes films such as “The Matrix” from the U.S. introduced by assistant professor Timothy Welsh, Ph.D., “Enter the Void” from Japan introduced by visiting assistant professor Christopher Washington, Ph.D., “Metropolis” from Germany introduced by Hamblin and “Delicatessen” from France introduced by associate professor of English Christopher Chambers, Ph.D.
It’s a new take on introducing students to film studies, according to Hamblin, and she hopes the class will strengthen the burgeoning film culture on campus. The class meets every Wednesday from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Bobet Hall, room 332. Registration is now open and the class code is ENGL A294. For more information or help in registering, please contact Hamblin.
