Cineforum Screening: When Father Was Away on Business
February 24 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
When Father Was Away on Business
This is a free event and all are welcome.
From September to April St. Michael’s College in the University of Toronto devotes a weekday evening in each term to the Cineforum tradition with a free public film screening followed by an informal discussion with the audience.
The films have been selected by a committee consisting of representatives from the resident departments in collaboration with St. Michael’s College. The list covers various national traditions and directors. Some of the films deal with topics relevant to such fields as science, politics, philosophy, religion, and world cultures, offering students, alumni, and the community at large a valuable extra-curricular experience. The works also cover a wide range of themes as well as cinematic styles derived from different aesthetic movements and eras. At the end of each screening a faculty member or graduate student will lead a short Q&A or discussion with the audience.
