3/21-24: The Turin Horse, Bergman's The Silence, filmmaker Sarah Kernochan & more!

03/19/13  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Two-time Oscar-winning filmmaker Sarah Kernochan appears in person on Saturday
On Saturday night we welcome visiting filmmaker Sarah Kernochan, winner of two Academy Awards (for the 1972 documentary feature MARJOE and the 2002 documentary short "Thoth"). Kernochan is also a screenwriter (NINE ½ WEEKS, SOMMERSBY), novelist, and singer-songwriter, and is married to Tony Award-winning director James Lapine, a frequent collaborator with Stephen Sondheim. At 5:30pm Saturday we will screen the movie she wrote that she is most proud of: Lapine's lively and funny 1991 period piece IMPROMPTU. Judy Davis and Hugh Grant star in this account of the romance between bohemian, cross-dressing novelist George Sand and composer Frédéric Chopin. Mandy Patinkin, Bernadette Peters, Julian Sands, and Emma Thompson co-star in the movie and Kernochan will answer questions after the screening. Here's the trailer.

Then at 8:30pm we will screen Kernochan's Oscar-winning MARJOE (co-directed by Howard Smith) in a new 35mm color print from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences Archive. This shocking exposé profiles charismatic, twentysomething Southern evangelist Marjoe Gortner (his first name is a synthesis of "Mary" and "Joseph"), who began his career as a precocious child preacher but continued holding tent revivals (and milking his followers for money) long after he stopped believing. (He comes clean for Kernochan's cameras.) Despite its Oscar, MARJOE was barely released in the American South as the distributor feared it would spark outrage. Kernochan will answer questions after the screening. Special admission to either film on Saturday is $12, members and CIA I.D. holders $9, age 25 & under $8. One can see both films for an additional $8. No passes, twofers, or radio winners will be honored.

Visiting film scholar introduces screening of 1926 Mary Pickford silent SPARROWS, shown with live music
On Sunday afternoon Christel Schmidt, who edited the new anthologyMary Pickford: Queen of the Movies (Library of Congress/University Press of Kentucky), will introduce a special screening of Pickford’s 1926 silent film SPARROWS, arguably her best movie. The film will be shown in a color-tinted 35mm restoration from the Library of Congress, with live piano accompaniment by Cinematheque favorite Joseph Rubin of New York City. The expressionistic SPARROWS finds the movies’ first female superstar trying to free a group of orphan children from a horrific “baby farm” located next to an alligator-infested swamp. The film’s original trailer and some outtakes will also be shown, and Christel Schmidt will sell and sign copies of her book after the screening.

Paradjanov's sublime THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES shown as a tribute to Cinematheque co-founder George Gund III
George Gund III, who died in January, was a philanthropist and film lover who first proposed that there be a cinematheque in Cleveland. In 1984—working with journalist Ron Holloway and then Cuyahoga County treasurer Frank Gaul—he made it happen. Gund, who had a particular fondness for Eastern European movies from behind the Iron Curtain (and even distributed some of them in the 1970s and 1980s), will be remembered on Thursday night with a special screening of one of the great Soviet-era films, Sergei Paradjanov’s THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES. This 1969 masterpiece renders episodes from the life of 18th-century Armenian poet and minstrel Sayat Nova as a series of gorgeous color tableaux teeming with religious and regional iconography. Voted one of the 100 best movies ever made in a 1995 Time Out poll, this one-of-a-kind visual spectacle was banned for years in the USSR, and hastened the director’s subsequent arrest and imprisonment on trumped-up charges. Before the movie, at 6:15 pm, a 2004 interview with George Gund that was conducted by Cinematheque Director John Ewing for WCLV’s “Arts on the Air” will be played in the auditorium.

Ingmar Bergman's erotic THE SILENCE is dark, strange, unforgettable
Ingmar Bergman’s overtly erotic 1963 drama THE SILENCE tells of two sisters—a lonely, ailing lesbian (Ingrid Thulin) and a sexually promiscuous mother of a young boy (Gunnel Lindblom)—staying at a mostly vacant hotel in an unnamed foreign country on the brink of war. Dark, cryptic, but unforgettable, the film encountered censorship problems around the world. See it in a 35mm print on Thursday or Friday. Print this email and present it at the box office and pay only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Watch the film's salacious original U.S. trailer.

THE TURIN HORSE is latest (last?) film from Hungarian director of "Satantango"
Hungary's 2011 THE TURIN HORSE is Béla Tarr’s latest (and he says last) film. It's an apocalyptic allegory set on a remote, windswept plain where an aging farmer, his grown daughter, and a precious work horse cling to longstanding daily routines despite growing evidence that the end of their world is near. THE TURIN HORSE is as austere, taciturn, and bleakly beautiful as Tarr’s previous miserablist masterpieces SATANTANGO and WERCKMEISTER HARMONIES, and remains one of the most acclaimed movies of the past two years. See it in 35mm on Friday or Sunday. Watch the appropriately minimalist trailer here.
