CLUB

The CLE Movie Club combines a love for film with a desire to speak English.


Participants meet twice monthly to discuss selected films. Two movie-crazy CLE faculty, Rongrong Dong and Al Evans, are the co-founders and co-leaders. Working together, they guide discussions for participants, making it easy to talk about films in English. Moviemaking techniques and film criticism issues are frequently included.


Entering its third semester in Fall 2020, the CLE Movie Club has watched films in three languages from a variety of genres, and an occasional guest speaker is invited. Discussions frequently spill over into our social media group. This fall, the CLE Movie Club will collaborate with our CLE courses in Chinese to create a cross-language event for our participants and international SUSTech students currently living in other countries.
