    MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

    Highlights of World Cinema

    FRANCE/GOLDEN AGE OF DANISH CINEMA

    Miami Premiere of the new 2K restoration by Gaumont

    THE PASSION OF JOAN OF ARC

    (La passion de Jeanne d’Arc)

    Directed by CARL THEODOR DREYER/Denmark/France/1928/1hr, 54mins.

    Starring Renée Falconetti, Eugène Silvain, André Berley


    Cine-Miroir Magazine, 1928, from the MBC Archive.

    Spiritual rapture and institutional hypocrisy come to stark, vivid life in one of the most transcendent masterpieces of the silent era. Chronicling the trial of Joan of Arc in the hours leading up to her execution, Danish master Carl Theodor Dreyer depicts her torment with startling immediacy, employing an array of techniques—expressionistic lighting, interconnected sets, painfully intimate close-ups—to immerse viewers in her subjective experience. Anchoring Dreyer’s audacious formal experimentation is a legendary performance by Renée Falconetti, whose haunted face channels both the agony and the ecstasy of martyrdom.

    “It’s difficult to envision a purer, more pared-down work of cinematic art than Carl Theodor Dreyer’s wrenching, intensely focused 1928 The Passion of Joan of Arc.”-Criterion Collection

    PLUS…

    PIONEERING SHORT FILMS

    Miami Premiere of the newly scored versions

    by the Alloy Orchestra

    These shorts all include new music composed and performed by the Alloy Orchestra, a three-man ensemble critic Roger Ebert called "the best in the world at accompanying silent films."

    TONIGHT’S SHORT:

    FILMSTUDIE

    Directed by HANS RICHTER/Germany/1926/7mins.

    Hans Richter was the foremost avant-garde filmmaker and artist in Germany in the 1920s, who aside from the French Surrealists, created Dadaist short films and abstract works that are legendary, including this one featuring floating eyeballs and a flock of seagulls.

    With a “SNEAK PEEK” at the MBC Interactive Archive Project:

    Michael and Dafna experience gut-wrenching grief when army officials show up at their home to announce the death of their son Jonathan. Michael becomes increasingly frustrated by overzealous mourning relatives and well-meaning army bureaucrats.

    Directed by LUCRECIA MARTEL/Argentina/2017/1hr, 55mins.

    Starring Daniel Giménez Cacho, Lola Dueñas,

    Matheus Nachtergaele, Juan Minujin


    Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America, waits for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town in which he is stagnating, to a better place. His situation is delicate. He must ensure that nothing overshadows his transfer. He is forced to accept submissively every task entrusted to him by successive Governors who come and go as he stays behind. The years go by and the letter from the King never arrives. When Zama notices everything is lost, he joins a party of soldiers that go after a dangerous bandit.

    “BEAUTIFUL, HYPNOTIC, MYSTERIOUS AND ELLIPTICAL”–Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

    “The frustrating nine-year wait for new material from Martel has done nothing to blunt her exquisite, inventive command of sound and image, nor her knack for subtly violent exposure of social and racial prejudice on the upper rungs of the class ladder.”-Guy Lodge, Variety

    “Zama’s uncanny visual humor is reminiscent of Miguel Gomes’s Tabu and João Pedro Rodrigues’s The Ornithologist, which are also shot by Poças and approach the legacy of colonialism from a strange angle. What distinguishes Martel’s film from those others is how bluntly its comedy informs its politics.”-Christopher Gray, Slant Magazine

    after 50 years (so far) of collecting and months of cataloging,  organizing, grouping and scanning images to represent the history of cinema illustrated by vintage memorabilia and ephemera. Eight thousand, nine hundred scans and photographs of original items were used, just for this first segment of the project. Every three months we will debut a new decade of images from the archive. This is the first, complemented by an ongoing MBC retrospective of highlights of world cinema. This overview will reveal a world of images to tell the history of cinema in a theatrical setting, set to customized music. Hope to see you there!”

    “BEAUTIFUL, HYPNOTIC, MYSTERIOUS AND ELLIPTICAL”–Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

    “The frustrating nine-year wait for new material from Martel has done nothing to blunt her exquisite, inventive command of sound and image, nor her knack for subtly violent exposure of social and racial prejudice on the upper rungs of the class ladder.”-Guy Lodge, Variety

    “Zama’s uncanny visual humor is reminiscent of Miguel Gomes’s Tabu and João Pedro Rodrigues’s The Ornithologist, which are also shot by Poças and approach the legacy of colonialism from a strange angle. What distinguishes Martel’s film from those others is how bluntly its comedy informs its politics.”-Christopher Gray, Slant Magazine

    Directed by LUCRECIA MARTEL/Argentina/2017/1hr, 55mins.

    Starring Daniel Giménez Cacho, Lola Dueñas,

    Matheus Nachtergaele, Juan Minujin


    Zama, an officer of the Spanish Crown born in South America, waits for a letter from the King granting him a transfer from the town in which he is stagnating, to a better place. His situation is delicate. He must ensure that nothing overshadows his transfer.

When Zama notices everything is lost, he joins a party of soldiers that go after a dangerous bandit.
