    L'OPERA MOUFFE French photo, 1958, from the #MBCarchive 

    A pregnant filmmaker (Dorothée Blanck, but it’s not a coincidence that the director was pregnant at the time) gives us her viewpoint of a Parisian neighborhood (“La Mouffe”, rue Mouffetard in the fifth district). She discovers the homeless, the poor, and more than she expected. She also starts the Nouvelle Vague. 

    AND

    LE BEAU SERGE

    (Handsome Serge)

    Directed by CLAUDE CHABROL, France, 1958. 1hr, 38mins.

    LE BEAU SERGE French photo, 1958, from the #MBCarchive

    A year before Jean-Luc Godard debuts Breathless and François Truffaut debuts The 400 Blows, Claude Chabrol gets the Nouvelle Vague ball rolling with this film that was ahead of its time. (In French with English subtitles)  

    With Gérard Blain, Jean-Claude Brialy, Michèle Méritz, Bernadette Lafont

    “Of the hallowed group of Cahiers du cinéma critics turned filmmakers who transformed French film history, Claude Chabrol was the first to direct his own feature. His absorbing landmark debut, Le beau Serge, follows a successful yet sickly young man (Jean‑Claude Brialy) who returns home to the small village where he grew up. There, he finds himself at odds with his former close friend (Gérard Blain)—now unhappily married and a wretched alcoholic—and the provincial life he represents. The remarkable and stark Le beau Serge heralded the arrival of a cinematic titan who would go on to craft provocative, entertaining films for five more decades.”-Criterion Collection

    "MICKY’S MOVIES"

    In collaboration with the Wolfsonian-FIU

    LOST HORIZON

    Directed by FRANK CAPRA/1937/2hr, 12mins.

    With Ronald Colman, Jane Wyatt, Edward Everett Horton

    LOST HORIZON US souvenir program, 1937, from the #MBCarchive.

    This spring, we’re celebrating Micky Wolfson by screening our founder’s favorite flicks in collaboration with the Wolfsonian-FIU. First up is Frank Capra’s 1937 sci-fi romance Lost Horizon, starring Ronald Colman and Jane Wyatt. Famously introducing the mystical land of Shangri-La, this Depression-era fantasy adventure sets the stage with the crash landing of a hijacked plane in the Himalayas, where the survivors find an enchanting “utopia” they grow to love . . . and then fear.

    Before boarding, start your journey with a 3:30pm Wolfsonian tour of A Universe of Things, our new exhibition on Micky’s collecting legacy, followed by the 4:30pm movie at O Cinema South Beach.

    Joan Crawford and John Garfield dial up the melodrama for round 2 for our spring series with the Miami Beach Film Society! Jean Negulesco’s 1946 big-screen soap opera Humoresque ratchets up the tension and jealousy by forcing a gifted violinist to choose between his beloved instrument, the neurotic patroness who plays on his heartstrings, and his disapproving mother. Get a sense for Micky’s eclectic taste through a 3:30pm Wolfsonian tour of A Universe of Things, then head across the street at 4:30pm to O Cinema South Beach to ride the emotional rollercoaster that is one of our founder’s most treasured films.

    "MICKY’S MOVIES"

    In collaboration with the Wolfsonian-FIU

    FITZCARRALDO

    Directed by WERNER HERZOG/1982/2r, 38ins.

    With Klaus Kinski, Claudia Cardinale, Jose Lewgoy

    FITZCARRALDO US still, 1982, from the #MBCarchive

    On the set with Werner Herzog, Klaus Kinski and Claudia Cardinale  

    The Wolf and Miami Beach Film Society are capping off our Founder’s favorite films with Werner Herzog’s 1982 Fitzcarraldo, a masterpiece about an opera obsessed man in the Amazon, and his quest to transport a 360 ton boat over a hill from one river to another. Herzog even opted to use an actual steamboat to perform the feat instead of attempting to film with a model boat. Consequently, many crewmembers were said to have gone mad while filming. Take the last 3pm film tour of Universe of Things at The Wolfsonian, before experiencing Fitzcarraldo at O Cinema South Beach at 4pm.
