Behind the Lens is a noncredit film seminar that takes a relaxed approach to exploring the history of cinema. Each quarter, former Hollywood director Tom Blank hosts a series examining a time period or a theme through classic and contemporary cinema.
All film screenings include a lecture, discussion, and question and answer period.
For the Summer 2017 offering of Behind the Lens, we will present a series of films featuring children. These are not stories for children, but, rather, stories about children. Some of the world’s great filmmakers are represented in stories exploring the experiences of children who face challenges, both within their own families as well as in the outside world.
The seminar is offered to the community in collaboration with the University of Oregon Cinema Studies and Academic Extension programs. Films are shown Tuesday nights starting at 7:00 p.m. at the UO Baker Downtown Center, at 10th Avenue and High Street. The duration of each session varies by the length of the film.
July 18, The River (1951) Director: Jean Renoir, 99min.
Films are screened under the Educational Fair Use provision of US Copyright law.
$20 noncredit for entire term
$10 for current Osher Lifelong Learning Institute members for entire term
