A recent, pleasingly positive review in the December 2016 edition of the online Film Studies journal, Senses of Cinema, here of Teaching Transnational Cinema: Politics and Pedagogy, the book I edited with my friend, Katarzyna Marciniak, which deals with issues around teaching and researching transnational cinema.

This is a short film I recently made with my friend and colleague, Brian Baker, about the neoliberal assault upon the university system. It is a documentary fiction, and is the product of conversations we have had about our experience of the destructive changes that have taken place within higher education in the UK since the 1980s, and also of the work that I have done recently on pedagogy and the politics of teaching Film Studies in universities. The film is a melange of influences including the novelist J.G. Ballard, Peter Greenway’s early films, Patrick Keiller’s documentaries, and dystopian cinema of the 1970s and 1980s including films by John Carpenter, Michael Crichton and Alan J. Pakula.

The film is posted on the Youtube channel of the journal, Sociological Review, and also features on the journal’s blog with a short commentary. It is also posted on vimeo.
