As part of the Scotland wide Virtual Cinema initiative, the John Gray Centre Film Appreciation Club has been holding informal video chats on selected films. During the Lockdown, our online meetings have been occurring bi-weekly, on Thursday evenings between 6.30-7.30 pm. So far, we have discussed selected films accessible via Netflix, BBC iPlayer, and All4 (Channel 4) player, and YouTube. We also exchange other film and book recommendations!
So, if you love films and are looking for something different to do, then why not join our vibrant virtual film chat.
Our next session will be on Thursday, 4 June 2020 at 6.30pm. We will be discussing an indie film entitled ‘Atlantics’ (2019, Mati Diop), which is available on Netflix. The film is an unpredictable, supernatural drama, set in Senegal, and presents some surreal twists. The story revolves around young lovers who have to choose between love and duty. ‘Atlantics’ won the Grand Prix at Cannes Film Festival 2019 and its director became the first black female director to compete and win at Cannes.
Stay safe, stay home, and happy viewing!
