Sixth Form students attend the British Film Institute

On Friday 8th March, the French Year 12 and Year 13 students went to the British Film Institute for a day of cinematographic analysis. They were told about the chronology of the major French film industry, and where the ‘Nouvelle Vague’ fitted. They also had the chance to learn about the origins of this phenomenon, as well as its original concepts and techniques. Once able to identify those, the most valuable exercise was then to recognise the influence of this ‘Nouvelle Vague’ in more films, putting in parallel classic ‘Nouvelle Vague’ films and more contemporary ones. 

In the afternoon, as it was the International Women’s Day, the students watched Cléo de 5 à 7, a classic tale of self discovery and rebirth.

All students benefited from the best possible exposure to cinema technique analysis, giving them the edge for the cinema essay of their future writing paper.

Quelle bonne et productive journée!
