    EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

    Directed by PETER GREENAWAY/UK/2015/104mins.

    With Elmer Bäck, Luis Alberti, Maya Zapata


    In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled Que Viva Mexico. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.

    Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.

    “AN EYE OPENING LOOK AT ONE OF CINEMA’S MOST RESPECTED FIGURES..Set in Mexico during the “10 days that shook” Russia’s greatest silent filmmaker, “Eisenstein in Guanajuato” marks Peter Greenaway’s raucous attempt to capture his all-time cinema idol at his moment of greatest personal discovery and deepest professional frustration…Determined to breathe fresh life into a medium he insists has scarcely evolved in the 90 years since Sergei Eisenstein made “Strike,” Greenaway has wrought an outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic that could take decades to be duly appreciated.”-Peter Debruge, Variety

    Alternate Heavens

    SAFE

    Directed by TODD HAYNES/1995/119mins.

    With Julianne Moore, Xander Berkeley, Dean Norris

    Produced by CHRISTINE VACHON


    Julianne Moore gives a breakthrough performance as Carol White, a Los Angeles housewife in the late 1980s who comes down with a debilitating illness. After the doctors she sees can give her no clear diagnosis, she comes to believe that she has frighteningly extreme environmental allergies. A profoundly unsettling work from the great American director Todd Haynes, Safe functions on multiple levels: as a prescient commentary on self-help culture, as a metaphor for the AIDS crisis, as a drama about class and social estrangement, and as a horror film about what you cannot see. This revelatory drama was named the best film of the 1990s in a Village Voice poll of more than fifty critics.-Criterion Collection

    EISENSTEIN IN GUANAJUATO

    Directed by PETER GREENAWAY/UK/2015/104mins.

    With Elmer Bäck, Luis Alberti, Maya Zapata


    In 1931, at the height of his artistic powers, Soviet filmmaker Sergei Eisenstein travels to Mexico to shoot a new film to be titled Que Viva Mexico. Freshly rejected by Hollywood and under increasing pressure to return to Stalinist Russia, Eisenstein arrives at the city of Guanajuato. Chaperoned by his guide Palomino Cañedo, he vulnerably experiences the ties between Eros and Thanatos, sex and death, happy to create their effects in cinema, troubled to suffer them in life.

    Peter Greenaway’s film explores the mind of a creative genius facing the desires and fears of love, sex and death through ten passionate days that helped shape the rest of the career of one of the greatest masters of Cinema.

    “AN EYE OPENING LOOK AT ONE OF CINEMA’S MOST RESPECTED FIGURES..Set in Mexico during the “10 days that shook” Russia’s greatest silent filmmaker, “Eisenstein in Guanajuato” marks Peter Greenaway’s raucous attempt to capture his all-time cinema idol at his moment of greatest personal discovery and deepest professional frustration…Determined to breathe fresh life into a medium he insists has scarcely evolved in the 90 years since Sergei Eisenstein made “Strike,” Greenaway has wrought an outrageously unconventional and deliriously profane biopic that could take decades to be duly appreciated.”-Peter Debruge, Variety

    VELVET GOLDMINE

    Directed by TODD HAYNES/1998/124mins.

    With Ewan McGregor, Jonathan Reyes Meyers, Christian Bale

    Produced by CHRISTINE VACHON


    Inspired by the life of David Bowie, Velvet Goldmine is also a tribute to glam rock of the 1970’s. It's been 10 years since glam-rock superstar Brian Slade (Meyers) faked his own death and vanished from the spotlight. Now it's the job of an investigative reporter to locate this living legend and uncover the truth behind his disappearance. Through the course of Stuart's investigation, you're taken for a wild all-access guided tour back into a vibrant music scene for an uncompromising look at the flamboyance and excesses of its larger-than-life stars.

    Saul Ausländer is a Hungarian member of the Sonderkommando, the group of Jewish prisoners isolated from the camp and forced to assist the Nazis in the machinery of large-scale extermination. While working in one of the crematoriums, Saul discovers the body of a boy he takes for his son. As the Sonderkommando plans a rebellion, Saul decides to carry out an impossible task: save the child's body from the flames, find a rabbi to recite the mourner's Kaddish and offer the boy a proper burial.

    Two Terence Davies Masterpieces:

    THE LONG DAY CLOSES/DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES

    In collaboration with MIFF

    THE LONG DAY CLOSES

    Directed by TERENCE DAVIES/1988/UK/85mins.

    With Leigh McCormack, Marjorie Yates, Anthony Watson,

    Nicholas Lamont, Ayse Owens, Tina Malone


    The Long Day Closesis the most gloriously cinematic expression of the unique sensibility of Terence Davies, widely celebrated as Britain’s greatest living filmmaker. Suffused with both enchantment and melancholy, this autobiographical film takes on the perspective of a quiet, lonely boy growing up in Liverpool in the 1950s. But rather than employ a straightforward narrative, Davies jumps in and out of time, swoops into fantasies and fears, summons memories and dreams. A singular filmic tapestry, The Long Day Closes is an evocative, movie- and music-besotted portrait of the artist as a young man.-Criterion Collection

    “With its purposeful lack of breadth, The Long Day Closes is all depth. Focused on a short period in a boy’s life, the film is less about events than the profundity of a child’s inchoate feelings. One is likely to take away from the film not a crucial narrative “moment” but an image or a sound—the fragment of a song, the odd audio clip from a movie wafting across the soundtrack like a radio transmission from some deep psychological recess.”

    -Michael Koresky for Criterion Collection

    EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

    (El abrazo de la serpiente)

    Directed by CIRO GUERRA/Colombia/2015/125mins.

    With Nilbio Torres, Jan Bijvoet, Antonio Bolivar


    At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, SERPENT centers on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evan Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant.

    Two Terence Davies Masterpieces:

    THE LONG DAY CLOSES/DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES

    In collaboration with MIFF

    DISTANT VOICES, STILL LIVES

    Directed by TERENCE DAVIES/1992/UK/85mins.

    With Freda Dowie, Pete Postlethwaite, Angela Walsh,

    Terence Davies's stunning debut feature film Distant Voices, Still Lives was instantly recognised as a masterpiece on its release in 1988 and the director hailed as one of Britain's most gifted and remarkable filmmakers…Drawn from his own family memories, Distant Voices, Still Lives is a strikingly intimate portrait of working class life in 1940s and 1950s Liverpool. Focusing on the real-life experiences of his mother, sisters and brother whose lives are thwarted by their brutal, sadistic father (a chilling performance by Pete Postlethwaite), the film shows us beauty and terror in equal measure. Davies uses the traditional family gatherings of births, marriages and deaths to paint a lyrical portrait of family life – of love, grief, and the highs and lows of being human, a 'poetry of the everyday' that is at once deeply autobiographical and universally resonant.-British Film Institute

    EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT

    (El abrazo de la serpiente)

    Directed by CIRO GUERRA/Colombia/2015/125mins.

    With Nilbio Torres, Jan Bijvoet, Antonio Bolivar


    At once blistering and poetic, the ravages of colonialism cast a dark shadow over the South American landscape in EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, the third feature by Ciro Guerra. Filmed in stunning black-and-white, SERPENT centers on Karamakate, an Amazonian shaman and the last survivor of his people, and the two scientists who, over the course of 40 years, build a friendship with him. The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evan Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant.
