The Ten Greatest Films of all Time: What do They Tell Us About Us?

Monday 2nd – Friday 6th December 2013

“Talking about dreams is like talking about movies, since the cinema uses the language of dreams; years can pass in a second and you can hop from one place to another. It’s a language made of image. And in the real cinema, every object and every light means something, as in a dream.” Federico Fellini

Re-viewing and reflecting on the 10 greatest films of all time as chosen by 385 of the world’s top directors in the Sight & Sound/BFI poll. Peter Francis introduces and invites you to re-view the films chosen by world critics as the greatest ever made. All films have a particular cultural context and offer an index of the anxieties and longings, values and compromises of the era in which they were made. Do these great films transcend their context and still resonate today?

The inclusive course fee (£340 - £380) covers morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast. Non-residential prices, Clergy and Student discounts are available on request.
