News from The Arthur Holt Library

We all know how hard it can be to find some time for yourself in a lockdown, and that’s why one of the undoubted highlights of the past few weeks has been the return of Movie Club. Thanks to the Library’s ClickView service, we’ve all been able to enjoy some great movies from the comfort of our own homes and Movie Club has been able to resume its regular Wednesday afternoon catch ups.

Last week, the boys enjoyed the New Zealand comedy ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’ and this week the Australian drama ‘Lion’. We’ve had to get a little creative about how the boys can share their opinions of the movies they’ve watched since we can’t all meet up in the library to discuss them. First off, Teaching and Learning Librarian Ms Raffaele asked them to create emoji reviews of the week’s film, while this week she’s set the challenge of creating a Haiku in response to the movie.

Of course, it’s not just the boys in Movie Club that can enjoy the wealth of movies and TV shows on ClickView. Anyone can log on using their Trinity email and browse through the collection. Some recent additions include Ewan McGregor’s adaptation of the Philip Roth novel ‘American Pastoral’; famed documentary ‘The Sorrow and the Pity’; and the recent Four Corners investigation into the app TikTok.

There are also a number of foreign language films and television programmes, which are a great resource for students looking to immerse themselves in their chosen language while speaking opportunities are at a minimum.
