Win, Lose, Punt or Play: Sport in Film
Class Co-Leaders: Bill Byrnes and Suzanne Patterson
For better or worse, sports are an important part of modern life all over the world. Since filmmaking began, sports have been a compelling subject for both filmmakers and viewers. The best sports films tell us about ourselves and the world around us; they have the power to uplift us, but they also challenge us to think about broader issues in our society. Eight uniquely sport-themed films will be screened and discussed including classics such as Bang the Drum Slowly and Chariots of Fire as well as lesser known gems such as Wondrous Oblivion and The Mighty Macs.
NOTE: Class time 1-3:30p.m.
