As part of your student experience in Week 12, we will be watching one of the greatest films of the 20th century: Claude Lanzmann's SHOAH (1985). Originally 9 hours long, we will be watching a 3-hour extract. Following an introduction discussing Lanzmann's background and approach, we will then watch the film before finishing with an open Q&A. Lanzmann's film addresses fundamental issues with 20th century history but also ethics and representation. I really look forward to seeing you there.
