CLE Movie Club: The Nightmare Before Christmas

2020-10-30

“The Nightmare Before Christmas” (1993) is the 15th film CLE movie club watched and discussed this Tuesday, Oct 27th. We selected this film as a way to celebrate the coming Halloween.

Even though this film is Halloween related, it contains broader themes and presents cross-cultural perspectives to the audiences. Amazed by the happiness and warmth of Christmas, Jack, the Pumpkin King, decided to kidnap Santa and deliver his version of Christmas to the kids in Christmas town. Under this cross-cultural theme, we shared our own experiences and stories on new culture encountering.

Club leaders also recommended some horror films by the end of the discussion.

Our next meeting is on Nov.10th, you are welcomed to scan our QQ group QR code and find more about our club.
