Texts in the City: The Old Man Who Read Love Stories

Listen to Texts in the City: The Old Man Who Read Love Stories

Studying a book or film can be a short-cut to consigning it to boredom. But our Texts in the City series – a gift to students, their teachers and lifelong learners – brings the VCE English and Literature lists to life.

Our text for this episode is Australian filmmaker Rolf de Heer’s 2001 film The Old Man Who Read Love Stories. Host Lili Wilkinson is joined by freelance writer, academic, broadcaster and filmmaker Josh Nelson.

Presented in association with The Victorian Association for the Teaching of English.
