A night of British humor

An entire night of Monty Python, and some of their friends that are both witty and silly. During the evening, lecturer Alon Gur-Arie will examine the concept of "British humor" and will pinpoint the most prominent scenes in British comedies. Later on, full-length British comedy films will be screened in parallel in the halls of the Cinematheque. Indeed, a lot of humor, a lot of British.
