Subtitling World Cinema Workshop

21 November, 2020, 9:30 am - 6:30 pm

This is an online event.

Tune in to watch an exciting array of four films from across the world, newly subtitled into English by University of Exeter MA Translation Studies students, or recently subtitled professionally. Choose one or more that you are interested in, with films coming from Africa, Asia and Europe and spanning four languages – Arabic, Chinese (Mandarin), Italian and Spanish. The two documentaries and two feature films all share a focus on gender, from an early example of Spanish feminist cinema, to a Moroccan 1980s classic, a Chinese LGBT documentary, and a recent documentary about Italian second-wave feminists.

After your screening experience, be sure to attend the virtual roundtable discussion with film-makers, academics, translators, film restorers and MA students who subtitled the films.
