Global Film Cultures
Thank you so much for the wonderful sessions. Over the course of the four weeks, I learnt a lot more about film history and many genres previously unbeknownst to me. Furthermore, I also could appreciate and view many of the films I’ve loved in the past from a new perspective. I genuinely enjoyed both the films and all your commentary during classes and was often left in awe upon seeing the vast knowledge you have about this subject. I truly loved the class and would love to do another course like this whenever I have the opportunity.

Witness to Pure Passion
Dr. Nandana’s lectures were marked by dedication and quality content. She arrived for each class with the clear intention of imparting pure, unadulterated knowledge. The breadth of her knowledge and the precision of her pronunciations were impressive, to say the least. The fact that each of her units had a curated list of reference books had echoes of her illustrious academic background. However, it was not the content of her lectures but her undeterred, single-minded passion and quest for films and filmmakers that impacted me the most. This is a short course, which will have long-term resonance with its participants.

A vivid look at global film
Really loved the workshop. Rich content and a great mentor. Nandana Bose’s love for film is so evident in the way she delivers her lectures and her earnestness is what makes this experience so much valuable. Looking forward to more from her and from Living Bridge. Technically too, very well managed. Worth every bit of the time and money spent.
