Description

What is this week's film?

Russian film Остров (The Island) tells the story of a small Russian Orthodox monastery where a man's bizarre conduct confuses his fellow monks, while others who visit the island believe that the man has the power to heal, exorcise demons and foretell the future.

"An unsentimental journey of guilt, atonement and redemption, with moments of comic bleakness. Your eyes will be smarting." - The Times

What is the Languages for All Film Club?

Now in its second year, the LfA Film Club provides an opportunity for students to mix and socialise. We hope the films will widen your knowledge and understanding of the cultural richness and diversity of other countries. Students studying the language of the films screened will have an opportunity to meet and practise their language skills in an informal and relaxed atmosphere.

Each screening starts with a brief introduction to the film followed by the screening of the film. Following the screening, students are encouraged to have a brief discussion of the film. This provides the opportunity for those studying the language of the film to explore some aspects related to the film in that language. All discussions are held in English and all films will have English subtitles.

Can I come along?

Yes! Although set up for languages students at COL, all screenings are open to the public.

Is it free?

Yes, all screenings are free to attend.
