Led by Pietari Kaapa, Lecturer in Media and Communication at the University of Stirling, macrobert's new film course, Nordic Cinema, is structured around film screenings and discussion sessions. It will provide an accessible introduction to the region's film cultures, and debates many of its key contemporary themes; multiculturalism, the role of capitalism, the rise of nationalism, political corruption, and gender contradictions. The films screened will underline the contrasts and diversity of Nordic film culture and include Jar City, Let The Right One In, Pioneer and In A Better World.
