The University of Manchester Centre for Jewish Studies is pleased to announce the 2021 Bogdanow Lecture in Holocaust Studies will be delivered by Oscar-winning film director László Nemes. The globally acclaimed filmmaker, whose 2015 film Son of Saul won numerous international prizes including the Academy Award, the Grand Prix, the Golden Globe and BAFTA, will give a masterclass for University of Manchester staff and students on 'Film in the Face of Historical Crisis'.
László Nemes’ seminar on his experience in filmmaking will treat the cinematic and ethical implications of portraying historical violence and crumbling civilisation in relation to his films Son of Saul and, more recently, Sunset. From there, he will turn to issues of subjectivity and the role of the viewer in today’s cinema; namely, the disappearance of the viewer-film relationship – toward a flow of standardised, television-compatible, interchangeable films.
