Wilma’s Documentary Club
On the third Thursday of every month you are invited to be a member of Wilma’s Documentary Club.
Wilma De Jong, Senior lecturer at the University of Sussex and published writer on the subject of documentaries, will lead a monthly discussion. The sessions will run from 13:30 to 16:30 and include an introduction with clips from other films, a feature length documentary and a post film discussion. The first session is on January 16 with the focus film being the cult mockumentary This is Spinal Tap.
In this club we will discuss a wide range of documentaries, examine what makes a film a ‘documentary’ and consider how the genre explores the fascinating dimensions of our real lives, our obsessions and our ambitions to create a fairer world.
Please book the ‘docs club’ ticket and arrive at 13:30 to attend the pre-film introduction in the studio and take part in the post-film discussion.
