CALL to the Cinema **Full with waiting list**


Films are chosen democratically. This process often allows us to discover the best in contemporary cinema even if the films are not widely known. Right now we choose from all films made in 2017 or later. Discussion centres on both the literary aspects of film such as character, story, symbolism and theme as well as the cinematic elements of music, costume, lighting and camera work. The goal of the group discussion is to bring out subtleties individual members might have missed.

The group is facilitated by  Melvin Pasternak. He has a Ph.D. in English and extensive teaching experience. A hobby of his is to study the works of directors such as Capra, Scorsese, Truffaut and Linklater and performers such as James Stewart, Ingrid Bergman, Meryl Streep and Judy Garland.

The group meets bi-weekly to allow members adequate time to see the films on Netflix. The Winter 2021 start date is January 12.

 Time:1:00 -2:45 PM 
 Dates:Jan. 12, 26; Feb. 9, 23; Mar. 9, 23; Apr. 6, 13, 27; May 11, 25; Jun. 8, 22
