Workshop: Cinema and Mythology

April 1, 2011 - 6:30pm
Bahram Beyzaie
Event Sponsor: 
Iranian Studies Program

The ten-week workshop offered by Mr. Bahram Beyzaie during the Winter quarter, made possible by the Bita Daryabari Endowment was a singular success. We have since then received many notes of appreciation for the Moghadam Program in Iranian Studies, the Daryabari Endowment and Mr. Beyzaie. Since one of the initial wishes of Ms. Daryabari in making her endowment was that courses in Persian and on Persian arts and letters be taught at Stanford, and since both the Moghadam Family and Ms. Daryabari have emphasized their desire for stronger ties between Stanford and the Iranian-American community, we are once again happy to announce that Mr. Bahram Beyzaie will present another ten-week workshop, open to public, and in Persian. The title of the workshop is "Cinema and Mythology."

In this course ten examples from International Cinema are introduced with an analytical view of their mythological content in open discussion format class meetings. Each session is two hours long with a ten minute break. All those who attend the lectures are expected to view the related film carefully, from the list below, before each meeting. Participation in the workshop is on a first-come first serve basis. The workshop will take place in Jordan Hall, Building 420, Room 040 and will meet on the following dates:

Jordan Hall, Building 420, Room 040

Free and open to the public.
