Film screening of ‘The Conversation’
Monday 21 November | 19.00–21.30
The Conversation’ focuses on a paranoid, secretive surveillance expert who has a crisis of conscience when he suspects that a couple he is spying on will be murdered. The film, directed by Francis Ford Coppola and screened after Watergate in 1974, raised important questions about the possible misuse of surveillance technology and connects with present-day concerns surrounding state spying and the erosion of civil liberties. The film will be introduced by Dr Claire Hubbard-Hall as we consider themes of surveillance in popular culture and classic filmography.
