La Folie Almayer
Belgium, France | 2011 | Chantal Akerman

Almayer's Folly

The new film by master filmmaker Chantal Akerman (Jeanne Dielman) has the highest overall metacritic.com rating of 2012: 92 out of 100! Based on Joseph Conrad’s first novel (but updated by many decades), this hypnotic, dreamy, anti-colonialist film tells of a brooding European treasure hunter living in the lush jungles of Southeast Asia. When his estranged, embittered mixed-race daughter, now grown, returns home after being educated in Europe, Almayer tries to reconnect with her. But she feels more affinity for a local insurgent. Undistributed in the U.S., Almayer’s Folly will be shown in a 35mm print from Europe that is temporarily in North America. “One of the year’s most hypnotic and fascinating films.” –Village Voice. Cleveland premiere.

127 min. Imported 35mm Print! Subtitels.

Special admission $12, members & CIA I.D. holders $10, age 25 & under $8 (with proof of age); no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
