The Man who Loved Books / Screening at the RAI / 10-1-2018
we are pleased to invite you to the screening of the documentary film The man who loved books. A homage to JR Llobera, which will be held at the Royal Anthropological Institute on the 10th of January 2018 at 5.30pm.
This is one of the rare films about anthropologists and about anthropology as a scientific discipline. The man who loved books introduces the life and work of the anthropologist Josep Ramon Llobera (1939–2010). Of Catalan origin, Llobera spent most of his life in his beloved Bloomsbury. He was one of the founders of the journal Critique of Anthropology and an active member of the department of Anthropology of the UCL. Through the testimony of those who knew him (friends, family and colleagues), excerpts from his writings and rich archival material, The Man Who Loved Books constitutes a sensitve and multi-vocal portrait of a man and his time; a man for whom learning and conveying knowledge through books became a way of living and of engaging with the world. It is, above all, a film about friendship and about the love for anthropology and social sciences in general.
There will be a short discussion immediately after the film with the presence of the filmmaker.
Date: Wednesday 10 January at 5.30 pm
