Winchester Academy presents How Does a Film Mean? Style and Substance in the Classic Hollywood Movie
Jack Rhodes, professor emeritus at Miami University (OH) will advance the theory that the essential success of a classic movie is not necessarily its subject matter alone but rather the craft and style with which the film is put together. He will remind us that the key question to ask ourselves in evaluating a film is not WHAT it means but HOW it means.
Thank Gene & Joan Wasserberg, Jerry & Karen Lyons, and Nyles & Gennie Eskritt for cosponsoring this program.
The Winchester Academy of Waupaca presents a series of lectures throughout the year. Unless otherwise noted, programs are held in the downstairs meeting rooms of the Waupaca Area Public Library. Each presentation lasts approximately one hour and is followed by discussion and refreshments. There is no admission charge. Should a late cancellation be necessary, it will be announced on WDUX (fm 92.7). All programs begin at 6:30 P.M.
The name “Winchester Academy” implies a building and physical structure, but there is none. The Academy is a voluntary organization with a Board of Trustees comprised of area citizens that fosters lifelong learning based on ideas originating in Scandinavian folk academies. The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.
