At this event, we will discuss the following questions (and more):

  • Why do we love movies?
  • How do we remember movies?
  • What makes Casablanca such a classic movie?
  • Does it matter whether we watch them in theaters?
  • Is there a distinction between “high” and “low” to be made within movies?
  • Movies vs TV: is there still a difference?
