SCARSDALE, N.Y. JCC Mid-Westchester will unveil the JCC Film Club Feb. 28 with "The Cinema of Steven Spielberg." A discussion will be led by the JCC's Film Scholar-in-Residence Eric Goldman, Ph.D, an adjunct associate professor of film studies at Yeshiva University. The club will meet from 10 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Tuesdays at the JCC, 999 Wilmot Road, Scarsdale.
"Steven Spielberg is one of the most important American film directors of our day," said Goldman in a press release announcing the new program.
Students will screen selections from his films and will discuss how the work reflected both a particular style and commentary on American society. Attention will be given to the evolution of the cinematic work of this auteur.
"The thrust of this course is to give students an appreciation of the medium of cinema, what makes cinematic expression personal and how one's films often reflect on personal issues," wrote Goldman.
The remainder of the sessions will be held March 13, 20, 27 and April 3. The cost of the program is $130 and advance registration is required. Light refreshments will be served.
