10:30am to 3:30pm, 12 October 2022, MAC Birmingham

An opportunity for students local to MAC Birmingham to attend one of our most popular KS5 Spanish study days.

This study day is an ideal introduction to the prevalent themes and style in the films of the Spanish director Pedro Almodóvar, structured in response to the AQA and Edexcel A-level specifications. Conducted mainly in Spanish, the morning will consist of a clip-based presentation giving an overview of Almodóvar’s work including narrative themes, character archetypes, visual style and influences, casting and intertextuality. The presentation will focus on All About My Mother (1999) and Volver (2006) and explore how Almodóvar’s themes, characterisation and style are apparent in both films. Students will be supported in studying key scenes and engaging with in-depth textual analysis.

In the afternoon there will be an introduced screening of Volver.

A resource pack will be available on the day.
