Current Episode, January 2015

This month Mark Cosgrove, Watershed Cinema Curator, talks about our new UK wide strand Conversations About Cinema: The Impact of Conflict with co-curator Tim Cole, Professor of Social History at University of Bristol.

Mark and Tim reflect on how the impact of a war, any war, is not confined to its dates, but goes far wider, far deeper. They discuss this notion in relation to our January programme, which includes a special Sunday Brunch season (Rebels in the Rubble) that explores filmmaking in the immediate post-war period and new release Testament of Youth. The Impact of Conflict strand runs from January until June 2015 and will explore the effects of war across people, society, places and politics.
