Brian McFarlane will speak on Real and Reel: a Lifetime Obsession with Film
Brian spoke to the club in its early days. We are delighted that he has accepted our invitation to return to the club. Since his visit he has written widely on film and especially British cinema. His pioneering book on British Cinema has had several further editions.
It may be said that Brian McFarlane has had three sometimes overlapping careers. First was aa a schoolteacher after graduating from the University of Melbourne: he taught in schools in Victoria and England, ending this career with fifteen years at Trinity Grammar School, Kew. Second, he became a full-time academic after several samplings as a part-time tutor while still at Trinity, and he spent his last ten years very happily at Monash University, where he taught literature, film and film-and-literature, with emphasis on British Cinema and literary adaptations on screen. Now, third, he has become a writer, and writing incessantly is what he does- when, that is, he is not reading the books and watching the films he needs to read or watch in order to write about them. He is the author/editor of about thirty books and hundreds of articles and reviews.
