Dates: 13 & 27 May | Location: BFI Southbank, London

The BFI has launched a new monthly film strand, in association with Kingston University, showcasing classics and contemporary works essential to understanding the development of film as an art form. In April they kicked off the strand with a The Cabinet of Dr Caligari and Surrealist cinema work, The Seashell and the Clergyman.

This month, the BFI brings classic films, À propos de Nice by Jean Vigo & Boris Kaufman (1930) and Berlin: Symphony of a Great City by Walter Ruttman (1927) screening together on 13 May and constructivist ‘documentary’ Man with a Movie Camera by Dziga Vertov (1929) on 27 May. Each screening will be introduced by a guest speaker.

For more information and to book visit the BFI.
