Come and enjoy Harmony Korine’s 2012 film which has already attained cult film status in a few short years. Dr David Sorfa will be delivering an introduction to this vastly strange yet entertaining movie. Not to be missed, Spring Breakers offers a commentary on modern-day superficiality and the younger generation’s obsession with highly stylised pop culture media.
Dan Yacavone’s book, Film Worlds, is nominated for the BAFTSS (British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies) book of the year award (alongside Jonny Murray’s New Scottish Cinema from the Edinburgh College of Art)
