First World War Speakers (Film) Series

seth_feldman_talkAnother interesting opportunity to learn about film and WWI is coming to St. John’s, Newfoundland in early April. The Room continues its program of commemoration activities with a lecture by Dr. Seth Feldman who will be speaking about how the movies have portrayed the First World War over the last 100 years. Taken in concert with their film series, this should be an interesting lecture which will examine features, documentaries and propaganda films made about the war, as well as the impressions of veterans on the portrayal of the war in film. The lecture is to be held at The Rooms in St. John’s, NL on Wednesday, April 6 at 7:00 pm (Klaus Ming April 2016).

    This turned out to be a fascinating lecture. It’s unfortunate that Dr. Feldman was limited to an hour.

    In addition to the many insights about the war as seen through film, the lecture also highlighted a few films that I have since tracked down, which I will be watching. I’ve since viewed the Battle of the Somme (1916), and up next up J’accuse (1919).

    Though i’ve thoroughly enjoyed all three of the The Rooms WWI film series which I’ve attended, i’m curious as to why they were not better attended? There are so few opportunities to see these sorts of film in theaters, let alone to have accompanying lectures and commentaries.
