The Eastern University Film Programme – Comments

December 28, 2014

Comments of the guest lecturer Dr. Bernardo Brown

” The Film Program at Eastern University is a unique cultural bridge that brings local
students and researchers into contact with academic visitors from around the country and
the world. The space for dialogue that it generates uses film as a starting point but expands
in many directions, enriching the intellectual imagination of all participants. I believe that
this initiative truly welcomes congenial conversations on diverse cultural and art topics that
are at the core of academic life and encourages fruitful exchanges amongst everyone
involved. In this sense, the Film Program plays a fundamental role in placing Eastern
University at the heart of Batticaloa’s intellectual world ”.
