This is the 2nd film of our 4 months of Winter Films series for this year! The movement behind the series is to show the film as an expressive artistic medium. With host Diana Forgione, we will go into the depths of director’s intention, genre advantages, foreign films, visual purpose, art direction and narrative throughout the series. Provoking shared experiences with a discussion after shown film.
