Join the Medieval and Renaissance Studies program for a free screening of the 2021 film, _The Green Knight_ and optional talkback to follow the film (with Prof. Stage of MRST and the English department).

Lowery’s film is based on the anonymous 14th century poem, _Sir Gawain and the Green Knight_, but definitely has its own take on the legend. The talk back will consider the filmic elements of the adaptation as well as its medievalism. The film stars Dev Patel, with Alicia Vikander, Sean Harris, Joel Edgerton, and Sarita Choudhury.

We invite you to talk about your own thoughts after watching in the discussion period as we think through the critical moves the film makes and its overall aesthetics, adaptation approach, and composition.

Additional Public Info:
Free for students, faculty, and staff (entry with safer community app).
