Thu 29 Oct 2009, 19:00, by Bardia Saadi-Nejad, at Bistro Burritoville:3rd floor, 2055 Rue Bishop, Montreal,QC (Map)
This Thursday "Cafelitt" would like to invite you to attend a Halloween Party, while Bardia Saadi-nejad is the presenter, talking on Horror Cinema! Following the theme of his first talk at Cafelitt on Expressionism in 1920's German Cinema Bardia fallows the road towards Horror movies as a genre, mostly shaped in Hollywood, film aesthetics and cinematic rules of the genre. 
In the meantime we're going to have a party, where we encourage all the participants to wear a costume even if it's the simplest one such as a mask or a hat. after the talk we continue socialising and having fun. Please support us with your presence. (Some simple idea for costume: 1,2)
Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints. It is largely a secular celebration but some have expressed strong feelings about perceived religious overtones.
The day is often associated with orange and black, and is strongly associated with symbols like the jack-o'-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, ghost tours, bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, telling scary stories, and watching horror films.

Always pleasant to hear from you and your activities, Bardia!

About us

CaféLitt is not a place; it is a gathering of minds. We are a group of mostly Persian young students, scholars and professionals who gather every Thursday evening around 19h00 in a café to discuss various subjects and share different ideas, ranging vastly from history to science, from literature to fine arts. We started these gatherings on Jan 18th, 2007. Each week, one of us takes the responsibility of presenting a topic (in Persian, English or French) for about an hour in a subject s/he is intimately familiar with or has an expertise in. Afterwards, the evening turns into a discussion forum and all members of the audience will have an opportunity to ask their question(s) and share their points of view.
CaféLitt is open to all comments, suggestion, collaboration and new ideas. CaféLitt provides an unparalleled opportunity for learning about culture, science and philosophy in a relaxed and friendly environment, and for sharing your knowledge and expertise with like-minded members of your community.
CaféLitt is officially registered as a non-profitable group and is a nonpartisan, nonreligious and nonpolitical entity.
