Event Details (RW2019)
Thursday 24th January at 4pm The Great Wall (Tadhg O’Sullivan, 2017) with introduction and Q&A with the film’s director.
'The Great Wall has been completed at its most southerly point'. So begins Kafka’s short story 'At the Building of the Great Wall of China', and so, at Europe’s heavily militarised south-eastern frontier, begins this film. Moving inward toward the seat of power, the film holds the European project up to a dazzling cinematic light, refracted through Kafka’s mysterious text; ultimately questioning the nature of power. “At its best… potent and searing” (Nick Bradshaw, Sight & Sound).
All welcome. Organised by Department of Film & Screen Media
