Can you believe this man? Not only did he save Private Ryan (Saving Private Ryan), successfully landed a plane on the Hudson river (Sully) but also he befriended Wilson – which couldn’t have been easy.
This week on #Film Kulturalny we are talking about Cast Away – a film about being lonely, desperate and resourceful – something that is still relevant especially today when almost every one of us is on a deserted island.
Let’s look at this movie and think about culture – why is it so important to human beings that even in the face of imminent death we try to keep it alive?
After watching it – let`s discuss it on Thursday`s live – trying to create a definition of culture.
We are at our homes.
Despite strong, inner drive to clean our house, create a gym or painting the basement we will probably limit ourselves to watching YouTube, Netflix or HBO GO.
Let me invite you to do it together – more consciously – and to arrive at conclusions better than we are able to draw alone.
- We watch films in English (with English subtitles – or if it is too difficult – Polish are also ok)
- We watch from certain perspective – paying attention to some cultural and language issues
- We meet on Youtube – to discuss it – also in English.
- There will be two films per week – first as an introduction, second as live streaming – with your questions, comments and reflections.
