Akira Kurosawa
Thursday, March 3 - 6:30pm

In his 1980 color masterpiece, Kurosawa returns to the samurai film and to a primary theme of his career - the play between illusion and reality. Sumptuously reconstructing the splendor of feudal Japan and the pageantry of war, this legendary director creates a historical epic that is also a meditation on the nature of power.

Japan, 1980, Color, 162 minutes


Robert Bresson
Tuesday, March 22 - 6:30pm

This profound masterpiece from one of the most revered filmmakers follows the donkey, Balthazar, as he is passed from owner to owner. Some are kind and some cruel but all have motivations beyond his understanding. Through Bresson's unconventional approach to composition, sound, and narrative, this seemingly simple story becomes a moving parable of purity and transcendence.

France, 1966, BW, 95 minutes


Luis Buñuel
Tuesday, March 8 - 6:30pm

A dramatic collision between depravity and elegance which stars Catherine Deneuve as a wealthy but bored newlywed, eager to taste life to the fullest. She seemingly gets her wish early in the film, but it turns out that this is only a daydream, but her subsequent visits to a neighboring brothel, where she offers her services, certainly seem to be real. This illusion/reality dichotomy extends to the final scenes, in which we are offered two possible endings.

France, 1968, Color, 101 minutes


Ingmar Bergman
Tuesday, March 29 - 6:30pm

An artist in crisis is haunted by nightmares from the past in Bergman's only horror film. Starring Max von Sydow and Liv Uhlmann on a windy island. During "the hour of the wolf" - the time between darkness and dawn when the sleepless are haunted by their deepest fear and when ghosts and demons are most powerful - he tells his wife about his most painful memories.

Sweden, 1968, BW, 90 minutes


Federico Fellini
8 1/2
Tuesday, March 15 - 6:30pm

Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, 8½ turns one man s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for 8½ was The Beautiful Confusion, and Fellini s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.

France/Italy, 1963, BW, 138 minutes
