On-line using Zoom

Film appreciation


Due to social distancing at this time, this popular LLL course will be taught on-line using Zoom. Prior to each session an email message with a link to the film, and in some cases the short story or novel on which the film was based, will be sent to every registered participant. Participants are requested to watch the film (and read the story if they wish) on their own prior to each on-line class discussion. In the first class, the instructor will give a brief overview of the elements of a film and film appreciation, followed by an open discussion about the film that was watched. Subsequent classes will include information about the film from the instructor, interactive discussion, and information about the next film. The course will provide you with some broad tools for evaluating and discussing a film beyond “I liked it a lot,” or “I didn’t like it very much,” or “I fell asleep.”

Films to be shown: The Sheltering Sky; La Strada; Trumbo; The Rocket; Blow Up; Swept Away

The facilitator for the course is Don Linder, a scriptwriter, fiction, travel and culture writer, and academic, who has travelled, lived, and written on five continents. His first feature-length film “The Last Executioner” premiered in 2014 and won numerous film awards including Thailand’s prestigious Tukata Tong Award for Best Film and Best Screenplay. Don’s most recent film, “The Cave” (about the boys in the cave in Chiang Rai) premiered internationally in Busan, London, and Vancouver in October 2018 and in Thailand in November 2018.


Cost: 1,000 THB for 6 sessions
