Projector is a collaboration project between Routes NW & Cornerhouse Manchester. This is a year-round education programme, which uses film, moving image and contemporary art to enrich students’ learning and bring innovation to the classroom. Throughout the year we have a variety of MFL study sessions specially programmed to support GCSE, AS and A2 students of French, German, Spanish and Urdu, all led by native language speakers.
Each of our study sessions use film as an exciting and accessible way to encourage students to use their language skills. Students will enjoy a specially selected film, screened in the target language with English subtitles. Sessions are supported by contextualising introductions, which provide information about the themes and characters of the film along with information about the film's director and place within film history and culture. Following the film, students complete language exercises based on the film using their new vocabulary.
Films are selected to complement GCSE, AS and A2 specifications and provide excellent material for topic-based work and oral exam preparation.
Topics to be covered: Argentina; family relationships; memory; love; Argentinean society; road movies.
Led by Carmen Herrero, Head of Spanish at Manchester Metropolitan University and Ana Valbuena, Spanish Language Tutor at the Instituto Cervantes.

We’re pleased to present this special screening of Familia rodante following its great popularity at Cornerhouse, where it last screened in 2006. 84-year-old Emilia’s been invited to her niece’s wedding. So she convinces the 12 members of her family to come along – travelling thousands of miles across Argentina, crammed in a decrepit camper van. Cue comic chaos in this family drama-meets-road movie.
