Mamoun’s trademark Movie Masterclass technique is a uniquely engaging way of teaching the art and craft of filmmaking, suitable for filmmakers and film-lovers alike.

His accessible approach evolves from a practical analysis of the whole filmmaking craft, a technique he established for the Channel 4’s Movie Masterclass series.

This participatory seminar will require prior viewing of Pather Panchali.
