|Les Amants du Pont-Neuf (2001, dir. Leos Carax)
Martin Scorsese presents Academy Award®-winning star Juliette Binoche in a uniquely uplifting story of two misfits who risk everything for love. A homeless artist who is losing her sight, Michele (Binoche) finds herself drawn into a passionate relationship with a troubled street performer named Alex. Then, despite all obstacles, they together find love and shelter on the famed Pont-Neuf bridge in Paris. After a grimly realistic opening among the down and outs of Paris, the story slowly turns into a startlingly memorable magical fantasy, with the famous bridge forming the backdrop for some of the most visually amazing scenes ever filmed.
|Breadcrumb Trail (TBC, dir. Lance Bangs)
Filmmaker Lance Bangs will be screening a work in progress cut of his forthcoming film "Breadcrumb Trail" about Slint and the Louisville, Kentucky music culture they emerged from. The feature length documentary contains interviews and previously unseen footage of the band including the writing and arranging of material for their album "Spiderland."
Following the screening Lance Bangs and band member David Pajo will appear for a discussion.
|Daisies aka: Sedmikrasky (2009, dir. Vera Chytilová)
Vera Chytilová's classic of surrealist cinema; a satirical, wild and irreverent story of teenage rebellion. Two young women rebel against a degenerate and oppressive society, attacking symbols of wealth and bourgeois culture. A riotous, punk-rock poem of a film that is both hilarious and mind-warpingly innovative, Daisies was banned in native Czechoslovakia and director Vera Chytilová was forbidden to work until 1975.
|The Devils (1971, dir. Ken Russell)
In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous and divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudon from destruction at the hands of the establishment. Soon, he stands accused of the demonic possession of Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), whose erotic obsession with him fuels the hysterical fervour that sweeps through the convent. With its bold and brilliant direction by Ken Russell, magnificent performances by Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave, exquisite Derek Jarman sets and sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, The Devils stands as a profound and sincere commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and the corrupt marriage of church and state.
|Rumblefish (1983, dir. Francis Ford Coppola)
Rusty James (Dillon) is the leader of a small, dying gang in an industrial town. He lives in the shadow of the memory of his absent, older brother - The Motorcycle Boy (Rourke) - his mother has left, his father drinks, school has no meaning for him and his relationships are shallow. He is drawn into one more forbidden gang fight and the events that follow begin to change his life.
|Taking Off (1971, dir. Milos Forman)
Taking Off is acclaimed director Milos Forman's (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Amadeus) first US feature. This 1971 comedy-drama stars Lynn Carlin and Buck Henry as middle-class New York suburbanites, whose teenage daughter runs away from home when she gets in trouble with her parents. In the process of trying to unravel the mystery of the girl's whereabouts, the couple rediscover their own lives. This funny, alternative coming-of-age tale features exclusive musical appearances from Tina & Ike Turner, Carly Simon and actress Kathy Bates (as 'Bobo' Bates).
