Sixth Form Spanish Trip to British Film Institute
On Tuesday 18th January, some of our Year 12 and Year 13 A Level Spanish students attended a seminar on "Almodovar on the Edge" at the British Film Institute.
Our Sixth Form Spanish students are studying the film Volver by Pedro Almodovar and the day spent at the British Film Institute provided an in-depth introduction to his themes and styles. This was a fantastic opportunity for all our students who all enjoyed the day. See what our students had to say about their experience below:
"Before lunch, we had a lecture on Almodovar and watched various clips of his films. Seeing these clips helped to see recurring themes between them, that I also recognised from 'Volver.' I found this very useful. Then, after lunch, we watched one of Almodovar's films called, 'All About My Mother'. It was a very good film, and I would definitely recommend it. Again, it was useful because although we are not studying that film, I could think about the links to 'Volver', as there were some very prominent ones."

"The trip was a great experience. The seminar was very informative and helped us to learn in more depth about Almodovar's works. The film we watched in the afternoon "Todo sobre mi madre" was very interesting. Overall, the day was very fun and enjoyable."
