After the screening there will be an interactive English lesson with the leading tutor of BKC-IH, Alex Zagorac, a licensed CELTA and DELTA specialist on communicative methods of language teaching.
Please don’t be late!
Entrance is free, but registration is required.
If you do not have a chance to register, you can still attend the screening and get a free seat according to availability on the door.
Age restriction: 16 +
About the film
The film that we will be screening is ‘Requiem for Detroit’ (2010) by Julien Temple.
This film evokes an apocalyptic vision. Once America’s fourth largest city, Detroit was built by the car for the car, with the first freeways, suburbs, and shopping centres, it embodied the American dream. Now it’s a dystopic city. Greenery grows through ruined office blocks and car plants. Crime and arson are rife. But there’s hope. Streets are being turned to art. Farming is returning to the city. Is this the future for post-industrial cities?
