Cinema in the Original Version at UA's Media Library

Alicante, 16 December 2016

Translated by María Miró Maestre

UA's Film Club has prepared two new film cycles for the second term of 2016/2017 at the Media Library of the University of Alicante campus (Main Library, no. 33 on the campus map). The first cycle, entitled Timadores (Swindlers), will begin on 23 February (February-March) and it will be followed by Cine y catolicismo (Cinema and Catholicism) from 6 April (April and May)

The aim of this initiative, which is already a tradition in our University, is to delve into the ins and outs of Cinema through the analysis of the selected films, with a previous presentation by experts (critics from Alicante and UA teachers) and a discussion after the screening. Since the films are shown in the original version, this workshop can also be interesting for those wishing to improve their language skills.

Entrance is free up to venue capacity. For those students interested in getting a certificate, it is compulsory to register in the cultural workshop within which this activity is held, and to attend at least 8 of the 10 films. Students' performance will be assessed by means of an assignment where they will express their opinion about 8 of the films screened. It will be evaluated by the coordinators Israel Gil and Raúl García.

Sessions will take place on Thursdays at 4 p.m., as usual. 


FEBRUARY-MARCH: Timadores (Swindlers)

Six films to feature several rascals who devoted their profession to swindling. These roles will be played by Di Caprio, Redford, Newman (and other not-so-attractive actors) in films directed by Fellini, Spielberg, Mamet...
