    Cinema in its totality!

    Nandana Mam is very passionate about teaching films and gave a unique perspective to how we see films. This course opened up a whole new world that I did not know existed. We not only learnt about cinema but also the socio-political context behind it which is very important to understand different film movements. One thing that was unique was to analyze how different film movements impacted global cinema and Indian cinema as well. In all, it was a very good experience.

    Comprehensive Workshop

    The Workshop was conceived and executed in a brilliant manner. The topic itself was an excellent choice. The content was good, and the mentor was able to hold the participants engaged in a wonderful manner. Her scholarship in the field is truly laudable. The time set apart for interactions was praiseworthy. The many links provided in the Google Classroom are valuable. The technical aspects were snag free and overall it was a rewarding and refreshing experience on all counts. Wish there were a few more sessions, to cover Indian cinema too.

With this knowledge I feel well equipped to understand cinema better. Thank you… Looking forward to many such experiences.
