It's a blast to teach, and I keep getting repeat customers, so it must be fun to watch, too. I show the best movies I can find on all matters Art. I take special pride in surprising my students with unexpected subjects and thought-provoking content (Students? Really? This class is so much fun I feel more like a hostess than a teacher).
I have two criteria: the movie must illuminate something artistic, by its subject, cinematography, themes, or vision; and it must be a damned good movie in its own right. You'd be surprised how many there are.
I never give away the movies for the current semester, so don't bother asking. I hate to reveal my secrets, but just as a teaser I will say that prior student favorites include Rivers and Tides, directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer, and Helvetica, directed by Gary Hustwit. If you have not seen these movies, find a way. I plan to offer "Artists on Film: Greatest Hits," a kind of retrospective of the best of the best someday, so you can also wait and watch them with me then.
The class is filling fast; as of this writing there were only four spots left. For more information, you can go to the Main Line School Night website: http://mainlineschoolnight.org/CourseStatus.awp?&course=11FAA41001
I hope to see you in class.
