Lehrerfortbildung: Using Film in Class - Film Adaptations of Literary Texts Fiona Pleasance

Fiona Pleasance

The adaptation of written texts into movies is as old as cinema itself.  In this workshop we will be looking at what happens when literature and theater become film. What differences in approach do text and cinema require?  And what makes a successful adaptation? Participants will receive an overview of some recommended film adaptations of well-known books and plays, including suggestions for different approaches and topics for discussion, with a special look at screen adaptations of the works of William Shakespeare.

Fiona Pleasance has a B.A. in History from the University of Cambridge and an M.A. in Film Studies from the University of East Anglia. She has worked in film and video production for twenty years and is a lecturer in film history and film analysis at Technische Hochschule Nürnberg as well as Hochschule Ansbach.
