Intro into Film Studies

Singin’ In The Rain by Stanley Donen & Gene Kelly – 1952, 1h43

Presentation and screening of an American Classic by Richard Peña, Professor of Professional Practice at the School of Arts at Columbia University, former Program Director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Director of the New York Film Festival since 1988.

‘Singin’ in the rain’ is one of the most-loved and celebrated film musicals of all time. A charming, up-beat, experience with great songs, lots of flashbacks and wonderful dances.

Colombia Global Centers | Africa have invited Richard Peña for a series of film workshops in Nairobi. Richard has organized several retrospectives of Michelangelo Antonioni, Sacha Guitry, Ritwik Ghatak, Kira Muratova, Youssef Chahine, Yasujiro Ozu, Carlos Saura and Amitabh Bachchan, as well as major film series devoted to African, Chinese, Cuban, Polish, Hungarian, Arab, Korean, Japanese, Soviet and Argentine cinema.
