Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 281: Tue Oct 8

Key film studies scholars on 'What's New with Jean Renoir': BFI Southbank, NFT3, 6.10pm

The BFI introduction: This event replaces the previously scheduled talk “What’s Wrong with Jean Renoir?” which V F Perkins is unfortunately no longer able to deliver, due to unforeseen circumstances.

Kings College London host a special roundtable event, gathering some of best scholars on Jean Renoir working today to discuss the latest currents of thought on one of cinema’s greatest directors. Ginette Vincendeau and Alistair Philips - editors of A Companion to Jean Renoir, published by Wiley-Blackwell earlier this year – will be joined by Julian Jackson (Queen Mary, University of London), Keith Reader (University of Glasgow) and Martin O'Shaughnessy (Nottingham Trent). We hope to also welcome VF Perkins to the discussion.
