Ken Kimmelman, Emmy award-winning filmmaker and Aesthetic Realism consultant, says about this upcoming class in his course “If It Moves It Can Move You”: Opposites in the Cinema:
Ireland, with its breathtaking landscapes, Celtic legends, and centuries-long struggle for freedom, has been dramatically and movingly presented in its films. At their best they show the intense fight in people between toughness and tenderness, joy and sorrow, good will and ill will–in relation to the land, family, money, religion, and love. They give artistic form to this urgent, ethical question: How should a person be seen?
Some of the films I’ll be discussing are: The Informer; Waking Ned Devine; The Magdalene Sisters
