the workshop will look at the attitudes of Bloomsbury, and Virginia Woolf in particular to the new art of the film in the 1920s and 30s.
Focusing on Woolf's 1926 essay 'The Cinema' and Clive Bell's writings on experimental cinema it will explore how Woolf's work, from 'Kew Gardens' to the fiction of the late 1930s, took up the devices of the film medium.
It will also look at recent adaptations of Woolf's novels, including Mrs Dalloway and Orlando, and at the ways in which the film The Hours intertwines biography and fiction.
