Thurs 13, 7pm: A series of discussions commemorate the late French movie critic, Serge Daney (1944-1992). Daney was an influential French movie critic who went on from writing film reviews to developing a “television criticism” and onto building a personal theory of the image. Although highly regarded in French and European film criticism circles, his work remains little known to English-speaking audiences, largely because it has not been consistently translated.
