DLCL Film Series

Jaco Van Dormael’s The Brand New Testament is a curious dark comedy that considers the unpleasant home life and cruel working habits of God, who happens to live in Brussels. When God's control of humanity is wrested away by his rebellious daughter Ea, who lets everyone know the time of their death, chaos and many moments of joy and self-exploration follow.

Discussion will focus on analyzing the relationships between gender and sexuality, love and friendship, body and performance. We will also address the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, and class as well as the different ways that film has represented sexuality across cultures, schools of cinema, film technologies, and history.

These screenings are part of the DLCL Film Series DLCL 152A/354A, which undergraduates and undergraduates can take for one unit C/NC. All screenings are free and open to the public and audience members are encouraged to participate in the discussions following the films. Please be aware that some films may include graphic or disturbing content: viewers are therefore advised to familiarize themselves with the films' content before viewing. May be repeated for credit.
