Screening of “Midnight in Paris”

Please join us for the screening of Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” (2011) on Thursday, February 26 at 7.00 p.m.!

The movie is not only a cinematic tribute to the city of Paris but also a nostalgic memory of the artistic community throughout the past decades. However, it is not less interesting to watch the movie under a legal perception – from the movie poster displaying Van Gogh’s “Starry Night” to the lawsuit brought by the estate of William Faulkner against the production company. The estate claimed that the line of the movie’s main character “The past is not dead! Actually, it’s not even past. You know who said that? Faulkner. And he was right. And I met him, too. I ran into him at a dinner party.” infringes Faulkner’s copyright in the expression “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” from his book “Requiem for a Non”.

Screening: Thursday, February 26, 7.00 p.m.
Venue: University of Glasgow, Hetherington Building, Room 129
Subsequent to the screening there will be an opportunity to discuss potential legal the group.


Screening of “The Artist”

Please join us for the screening of Michel Hazanavicius’ movie “The Artist” on Wednesday, the 11th of February at 7.00 p.m.! The screening is a follow-up to the showing of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” in Semester 1.

The re-use of part of the musical score from “Vertigo” in this Oscar-winning recent film raised the question of whether to accept this as a homage or object to it as an infringement of the artists’ moral rights in the original film. You can read a blog post by Mira Sundara Rajan on this issue here.

Screening: Wednesday, 11th of February, 7.00 p.m.
Venue: Gilchrist Club, Seminar Room

The screening will be followed by an opportunity to discuss the Moral Rights controversy with Prof Sundara Rajan and the group.
