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.
