The Browning Cinema at the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center is returning its four-week capsule film studies program beginning Wednesday, July 6, 2022. Summer Film School uses one classic film each week to explore an aspect of film production.
Each class begins with a lecture at 6 p.m., followed by the film screening at 7 p.m., and a discussion immediately following. Summer Film School is open to the public, and audience members are welcome to attend any portion of the evening.
The four films and class topics are:
