Sheffield’s Showroom presents a Showroom Summer Season, a series of free weekly film talks from esteemed academics from both Sheffield Hallam and University of Sheffield. The events allow for a bit of virtual globe-hopping, with talks scheduled to discuss cinema from around the world — starting in Spain on Wed 1 July with Ana María Sanchez-Arce’s intriguing-sounding discussion of photographs in the cinema of Pedro Almodóvar, and concluding locally on Wed 12 August as Sheldon Hall talks ‘Going to the Gaumont Cinema, Sheffield 1948 – 58’.

In between, we like the sound of Jennifer Coates’ ‘Working From Home, 1960s Style: Gender Roles and the Japanese Studio System’ on 29 July, and Kate-Taylor Jones’ presentation on ‘Gender, Sex and Class in Modern Korean Cinema’ (8 July). Meanwhile, Julia Dobson looks at Portrait of A Lady on Fire director Celine Sciamma’s Girlhood (15 July), and on 22 July, Sarah Alwin and Tim Moffatt take things back to the forties with a look at a William Wyler’s classic with ‘Getting Away With Murder: South East Asian Noir in The Letter’.
