St. John's College Film Institute’s Open House Event

Posted by St. John's College on April 29, 2014

SANTA FE, NM: St. John's College is proud to announce the creation of the "St. John's College Film Institute," an eight-week summer program exploring great film. The program will run June 15 to August 8, 2014. In the tradition of St. John's thoughtful attention to and careful reading of the Great Books, The SJC Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers and viewers of great films.

On Friday, May 9th at 6:30 pm, St. John's is hosting a reception, screening, and conversation about Luis Bunuel's "Un Chien Andalou." Bunuel's film is a landmark of early experimental cinema, co-created with surrealist artist Salvador Dali. This event is being held to introduce the Santa Fe community members to the Film Institute. Participants will view the film, which will be followed by a seminar led by St. John's faculty. Not unlike the Film Institute itself, participants will learn to discuss and analyze the film from many perspectives. The event will take place in the beautiful Levan Hall on the St. John's campus; home of the Graduate Institute.
