4/28-5/1: City Lights, Poetry, Amateur Night & More!

04/26/11  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

South Korean drama POETRY is one of the most acclaimed movies of 2011 Winner of the Best Screenplay Award at the Cannes Film Festival as well as the Grand Bell Award (Korean Oscar) and Korean Critics Award for Best Picture, Lee Chang-dong's POETRY is a fascinating, multi-faceted, unsentimental portrait of a widow facing a host of problems. The main character is a 66-year-old woman who develops an interest in writing poetry while battling the onset of Alzheimer's and also raising a teenage grandson involved in a horrendous crime. This 2010 New York Film Festival selection has an overall score of 88 out of 100, based on 16 positive reviews from across the U.S. Don't miss it Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Chaplin's beloved romantic comedy CITY LIGHTS returns in new 35mm print! CITY LIGHTS (1931) is Charlie Chaplin's last and most celebrated silent film. In it, the "little tramp" befriends a blind flower girl and a drunken millionaire with hilarious and heartbreaking results. This is one of the most beloved movies of all time; Orson Welles once called it his favorite film, and both Stanley Kubrick and Andrei Tarkovsky ranked it fifth among their personal top ten. Legendary film critic James Agee proclaimed the film's famous ending "the greatest piece of acting and the highest moment in movies." Can be seen Friday or Saturday in a new 35mm print. Kids 12 & under $6. HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER is survival drama set in cold, forbidding Arctic Circle Alex Popogrebski's Russian film HOW I ENDED THIS SUMMER beat out THE KING'S SPEECH, BLACK SWAN, 127 HOURS, and ANOTHER YEAR to be named Best Film at the 2010 BFI London Film Festival! (It also won the Golden Hugo for Best Film at last year's Chicago Int'l Film Festival.) Set at a meteorological station on a remote island in the Arctic Circle, it focuses on the two men who live and work there-a grizzled, fiftyish veteran and a young, green college-grad whose clashing lifestyles and failure to communicate result in a relationship as hostile as their surroundings. This tense survival drama shows on Thursday and Saturday. AMATEUR NIGHT is new compilation of restored, classic American home movies Think home movies are boring? Think again! AMATEUR NIGHT: HOME MOVIES FROM AMERICAN ARCHIVES is a new compilation of 16 amateur films from 16 American archives. It offers a fascinating peek at the wealth of historical and cultural treasures buried in the neglected, disparaged realm of small-gauge cinema. Selected by Dwight Swanson of the Center for Home Movies in Baltimore (he will attend our showing on Sunday night) and blown up to 35mm (often with music or narration added), the films in this unique program date from 1915 to 2005 and encompass comedy, drama, and animation in addition to family scenes and travelogues. Among the highlights: Alfred Hitchcock's home movies; Arthur P. Howe's "Last Great Gathering of the Sioux Nation"; Naokichi Hashizume's "Heart Mountain Relocation Center," about a WWII internment camp for Japanese-Americans; "Nixon Visits Idaho Falls"; and Wallace Kelly's "Our Day," a 1938 Kentucky home movie masterpiece listed on the Library of Congress's National Film Registry (shown here with a new score by Rachel Grimes). Swanson will introduce and answer audience questions after the screening. Here's the trailer. Special admission $10, members and CIA students & staff $7. AHEAD OF TIME profiles remarkable 99-year-old photojournalist Ruth Gruber Bob Richman's new documentary AHEAD OF TIME is a portrait of Ruth Gruber, who was born in Brooklyn in 1911, became the youngest Ph.D. in the world at 20, and then turned international foreign correspondent and photojournalist at age 24. In a career spanning more than seven decades, Gruber made news as much as she reported it-traveling to Alaska and the Soviet Arctic, escorting Holocaust refugees to America, covering the Nuremberg trials and the founding of Israel, and befriending Eleanor Roosevelt, Harry Truman, David Ben Gurion, and others. Gruber, interviewed at length in the film, is still lucid as she approaches her 100th birthday. See it Thursday or Sunday. Print this post and present it at the box office and pay only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Films This Week Thu.
