Meet the Author

At the end of a career teaching English Literature at Hull University, John Hoyles launched out with two courses on world cinema for his students. They were CINE-TOT ('Cinema and Totalitarianism'), followed by CINE-FEM ('Cinema and Feminism'). In this fashion, in the 1990s, a passion first aroused by the Cambridge University Film Society in that little passage-way Art Cinema (1957-1960), came to fruition. Film took over from literature as the abiding interest. In retirement the loss of students was in part made up for by blogging these scraps for the new foundation we quaintly call The Hull Film Society.
