Gran Torino at LGS/BFI Philosophical Screens, December 12, 2012

BFI Southbank 6.10pm

In the latest in this series exploring the dialogue between philosophy and film, philosopher Pascal Sévérac examines Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood’s complex portrait of the relationship between a widowed Korean war veteran (played by Eastwood himself) and his Hmong American neighbours, which reaches a flashpoint after young Thao (Bee Vang) attempts to steal his car. Pascal Sévérac is a lecturer at the Université Paris-Est Créteil, programme director at the Collège International de Philosophie, and Chief Editor of the online journal laviedesidées.fr

Presented with the London Graduate School and the College International de Philosophie. With an introduction and post-screening discussion
