    3/D Rarities and the 3/D 35mm photographs

    by Alexandre Nahon

    Paul Schrader at work, Upstate New York, July, 2017, by Alexandre Nahon.

    From 6-10pm MBC will host an open house featuring the MBC Interactive Archive Project touch-screen monitor in the gallery along with 3/D 35mm photographs by Alexandre Nahon. In celebration of the 1950s debut of the archive project, 3/D Rarities will play on the main screen. 3/D glasses provided. 


    Presented in high-quality digital 3/D, all films have been stunningly restored and mastered direct from archival materials. Meticulously aligned shot by shot for precise registration of the original left/right elements, these historic 3/D motion pictures have never before looked this good. Selections include New Dimensions, the first domestic full color 3/D film originally shown at the World’s Fair in 1940; Around is Around, a 3/D animated gem by Norman McLaren; Rocky Marciano vs. Jersey Joe Walcott, the only 3/D newsreel; trailer for The Maze, with fantastic production design by William Cameron Menzies (coming to MBC this summer!); I’ll Sell My Shirt, a burlesque comedy unseen in 3/D for over 60 years; Boo Moon, an excellent example of color stereoscopic animation…and more!

    “Best of Cannes Film Festival”

    (Winner: Best Screenplay)

    3 FACES

    Directed by JAFAR PANAHI/Iran/2019/1hr, 40mins.

    With Behnaz Jafari, Jafar Panahi, Marzayeh Rezaei


    Iranian director Jafar Panahi’s fourth completed feature since he was officially banned from filmmaking is one of his very best. Panahi begins with a smartphone video shot by a young woman (Marziyeh Rezaei) who announces to the camera that her parents have forbidden her from realizing her dream of acting and then, by all appearances, takes her own life. The recipient of the video, Behnaz Jafari, as herself, asks Panahi, as himself, to drive her to the woman’s tiny home village near the Turkish border to investigate. From there, 3 Faces builds in narrative, thematic, and visual intricacy to put forth a grand expression of community and solidarity under the eye of oppression. – New York Film Festival (In Farsi with English subtitles).

    WINNER: Best Screenplay Cannes Film Festival

    Official Selection: Toronto and New York Film Festivals

    “Charming Iranian cinema at its purest. Defiantly modern in its liberating message.”–Deborah Young, The Hollywood Reporter

    “Full of intelligence and humility and a real respect for women and for female actors. Gentle, elusive, and redolent of this director’s mysterious Iranian zen.”–Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

    “A beautiful expression of artistic solidarity.”–Sam C. Mac, Slant Magazine

    THE LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

    In 3/D

    Directed by BI GAN/China/2019/2hr, 20mins.

    With Wei Tang, Jue Huang, Sylvia Chang, Hong Chi-Lee


    As proven by his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, Bi Gan is preoccupied with film’s potential to both materialize mental space and convey physical sensation. His cinematic ambitions are further crystallized, to say the least, in Long Day’s Journey Into Night, a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before. Co-starring Chinese superstars Sylvia Chang and Wei Tang, the film features an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. – New York Film Festival

    “SWOONINGLY BEAUTIFUL…with a staggering 59-minute 3/D tracking shot that must be seen to be believed”-Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

    “Staggering. A remarkable new kind of filmmaking experience.”

    –Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “It’s impossible to describe… and even more impossible to forget."

    –Emily Yoshida, Vulture

    “A FLAT-OUT MASTERPIECE. If Bi Gan’s goal was to reinvent the language of film, he might have done achieved that goal.”– Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist

    "LIKE NOTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE. Like many great filmmakers—from Alain Resnais and Andrei Tarkovsky to David Lynch and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, all of whom he recalls to varying degrees—Bi [Gan] seems to believe that new realms of cinema are possible in making the immaterial material."– Dennis Lim, Film Comment

    Miami Premiere of the digitally

    restored Director’s Cut of the film!

    MISHIMA:

    A LIFE IN FOUR CHAPTERS

    Directed by PAUL SCHRADER/1985/2hr.

    With Ken Ogata, Masayuki Shionoya, Hiroshi Mikami

    With overture and complementary accompaniment by the

    South Beach Chamber Ensemble



    String Quartet No. 3 (Mishima) originally appeared as parts of the film score for Mishima by filmmaker Paul Schrader. The film follows a complex narrative structure which divides the life of this famous contemporary Japanese novelist into three parts: his childhood, his mature years and the last day of his life. These subjects were intercut to produce a shifting kaleidoscopic vision of Mishima's life. The scenes of his childhood were filmed in black and white and scored for string quartet.

    An American composer, Philip Glass is widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the late 20th century. Glass's work has been described as minimal music, having similar qualities to other "minimalist" composers such as La Monte Young, Steve Reich, and Terry Riley. However, Glass has instead described himself as a composer of "music with repetitive structures", which he has helped evolve stylistically. (In English and Japanese with English subtitles)

    “A FLAT-OUT MASTERPIECE. If Bi Gan’s goal was to reinvent the language of film, he might have done achieved that goal.”– Jordan Ruimy, The Playlist

    "LIKE NOTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE. Like many great filmmakers—from Alain Resnais and Andrei Tarkovsky to David Lynch and Apichatpong Weerasethakul, all of whom he recalls to varying degrees—Bi [Gan] seems to believe that new realms of cinema are possible in making the immaterial material."– Dennis Lim, Film Comment

    THE LONG DAY’S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT

    In 3/D

    Directed by BI GAN/China/2019/2hr, 20mins.

    With Wei Tang, Jue Huang, Sylvia Chang, Hong Chi-Lee


    As proven by his knockout debut, Kaili Blues, Bi Gan is preoccupied with film’s potential to both materialize mental space and convey physical sensation. His cinematic ambitions are further crystallized, to say the least, in Long Day’s Journey Into Night, a noir-tinged film about a solitary man (Jue Huang) haunted by loss and regret, told in two parts: the first an achronological mosaic, the second a nocturnal dream. Again centering around his native province of Guizhou in southwest China, the director has created a film like nothing you’ve seen before. Co-starring Chinese superstars Sylvia Chang and Wei Tang, the film features an hour-long, gravity-defying 3D sequence shot, which plunges its protagonist—and us—through a labyrinthine cityscape. – New York Film Festival

    TELL IT TO THE BEES

    Directed by ANNIBEL JANKEL/United Kingdom/106 mins


    Academy Award winner Anna Paquin and Holliday Grainger star in this wrenching drama of a shunned small-town doctor and beekeeper in postwar Britain who befriends a struggling mother and son, helping them discover that love can be found in many forms.

    Led by her philandering husband, Lydia (Holliday Grainger) is in an increasingly desperate situation: emotional turmoil aside, her earnings from factory work are not sufficient to pay the rent. Lydia's son, Charlie (Gregor Selkirk), meanwhile, is getting bullied at school. Injuries from one such altercation send him to Dr. Jean Markham (Academy Award winner Anna Paquin), who has recently returned to town and found the welcome lukewarm. Charlie is curious about the bee colonies Jean maintains in her yard and the two form a bond. Bees, Jean explains, make an excellent repository for one's secrets. When Lydia and Charlie are evicted, Jean invites them to stay in her home, an act of generosity that raises eyebrows throughout the village. Lydia soon learns why Jean is regarded with hostility — and she begins to see something in the kind doctor that takes her by surprise. Based on the novel by Fiona Shaw, Tell It To The Bees is a story of courage in the face of terrifying intolerance.

    Love comes in myriad forms here: romantic love, the love between parent and child, the vocational love that a caregiver feels for their community - even when that community turns on her. Beautiful to look at, suspenseful, sexy, and deeply touching, Jankel's film remind us that opening our hearts to the possibility of love can be reward enough.

    “Race, sexuality and masculinity are all touched on in a successful attempt to reflect the bigger picture of an era in which the slightest transgression could be met by the harshest of punishments. “- Screen International

    “A tale of illicit love that dare not speak its name....it’s hard to dislike this pleasant, earnest work.” - The Hollywood Reporter

    Directed by CAMILLE VIDAL-NAQUET/ France/ 99mins


    Seething with a feral energy that masks genuine tenderness, Camille Vidal-Naquet’s feature debut took the 2018 Critics Week at Cannes by storm. Anchored by a piercing, peripatetic lead performance by Félix Maritaud, Sauvage makes vivid a gay street hustler’s knife’s-edge existence. Both brutal and brutalized, sweet and savage, Maritaud’s prostitute roams from john to john in search of a fix (in the form of sex, drugs, and possibly even love), desperate for both intimacy and freedom, destabilized but ultimately resilient. The intimacies of male bodies both connected and colliding is sensitively captured by cinematographer Jacques Girault, guided by Vidal-Naquet’s assured direction.   Gut-punchingly authentic with radiant moments of tenderness where least expected, intimate yet not voyeuristic, this first feature by writer-director Camille Vidal-Naquet gets the balance between looking-for-love and settling-for-sensation exactly right in this  incredibly frank and involving immersive portrait

    “Raw and Riveting. Stunningly shot.”–Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

    “A riotous and sensual ode to freedom. A work of rare vitality. The film neither demonizes sex as perverted or mindless, nor eulogizes it as the pinnacle of pleasure. SAUVAGE / WILD’s complex representation of love - from the ephemeral connections with sexual partners, to intense romantic passion - is less conspicuous than its frank portrayal of sex work and gay sexuality, but it is just as nuanced.”–Elena Lazic, Sight & Sound

     “A powerful portrait… Refreshingly straightforward and unvarnished”–Guy Lodge, Variety

Charlie is curious about the bee colonies Jean maintains in her yard and the two form a bond. Bees, Jean explains, make an excellent repository for one's secrets. When Lydia and Charlie are evicted, Jean invites them to stay in her home, an act of generosity that raises eyebrows throughout the village. Lydia soon learns why Jean is regarded with hostility — and she begins to see something in the kind doctor that takes her by surprise. Based on the novel by Fiona Shaw, Tell It To The Bees is a story of courage in the face of terrifying intolerance.
