This follow-up to our earlier Day School on the American Western looks at how filmmakers outside the US, especially in Europe and Latin America, have used the genre to explore their own concerns. The day will include a complete screening of A Bullet For the General (Quién sabe?, Italy 1966). Damiano Damiani’s film is set in revolutionary Mexico and stars Gian Maria Volonte.

Tutor: Roy Stafford, Fee for the day: £14 (Concessions £9)

Tea and coffee will be provided and there are places nearby to buy lunch, although people are welcome to bring their own lunches.
