Cinema in Context (previous events)

CINEMA IN CONTEXT is a new periodic program at the Brattle Theatre that explores the ways in which films can be used to examine topics in the social sciences — and also serve as historical documents that play a large part in our understanding of culture, society, and history.

Each screening will be preceded by a presentation from a scholar or expert, with the aim of deepening our understanding of the film and addressing how it reflects popular ideas or issues in their chosen field. Select screenings will also be followed by a Q&A with the audience. See a list of current screenings here →
