2/13-16: The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, lots of Pasolini & more!

1966 Italian rarity THE WITCHES tells five different stories by five directors
Five major Italian filmmakers—including Pier Paolo Pasolini, Vittorio De Sica, and Luchino Visconti—contribute segments to THE WITCHES, a five-part 1966 Italian rarity that does not deal with witches of the supernatural variety. Silvana Mangano stars in all five episodes, playing everything from a famous movie star to an unhelpful good Samaritan. She is supported in individual stories by other famous actors: Alberto Sordi, Totò, and even a very young Clint Eastwood (pictured above)! Pasolini’s amusing 30-min. segment, The Earth as Seen from the Moon (La Terra Vista Dalla Luna) with Totò, Ninetto Davoli, and Laura Betti, follows a widowed father and his son as they search for a new wife and mother. Ennio Morricone did the music. See The Witches in a 35mm color print on Satuday or Sunday. Special admission is $12; Cinematheque members $9; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted.

Catherine Deneuve stars in beloved French musical romance THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG A French shopgirl (Catherine Deneuve, luminous) loves a mechanic but marries another man in Jacques Demy's groundbreaking, all-singing 1964 musical THE UMBRELLAS OF CHERBOURG. This romantic, candy-colored concoction is our Valentine's Day presentation. Michel Legrand did the music and the film won the Palme d'Or at Cannes 50 years ago. See this classic on Thursday or Friday in a 35mm print from France. Here's the trailer, but keep in mind that our print will have English subtitles.

THE RAPE OF EUROPA chronicles the real Monuments Men and their mission
Co-produced by Robert Edsel (who wrote the book The Monuments Men that inspired George Clooney’s new film), the superb 2006 documentary THE RAPE OF EUROPA traces the fate of European art treasures that were systematically looted by the Nazis during WWII. Many of these treasures were rescued and preserved by a heroic bunch museum directors, curators, and art historians. The film also serves as a superbly succinct history of the war in Europe, for those too young to know anything about this epic conflict that defined geo-politics in the second half of the 20th century. See it Saturday night at 6:45. Here's the trailer.

THE END OF TIME is a globe-trotting meditation on things temporal and eternal
Peter Mettler's THE END OF TIME is an enthralling, transcendental new essay film that traverses the globe to explore the nature of time. It moves from the giant particle accelerator outside Geneva to the lava flows of Hawaii, from decaying Detroit to the tree where Buddha found enlightenment. Filmmaker Mettler, a Canadian, limns the links between destruction and renewal, mysticism and modern science. The Hollywood Reporter says the movie “[recalls] the work of Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog and the late Chris Marker," calling it "immersive and hypnotic…A ravishingly beautiful experience.” Thursday and Sunday are the times to see it. Print this email and present it at the box office and see The End of Time for only $7 ($6 if you’re a Cinematheque member). It’s our Deal of the Week! Watch the trailer here.

Orson Welles stars in Pier Paolo Pasolini's stinging religious satire LA RICOTTA
Originally included in the four-part 1963 anthology film Ro.Go.Pa.G. (with segments directed by ROssellini, GOdard, PAsolini, and Gregoretti), Pier Paolo Pasolini's 35-min. LA RICOTTA is one of the director’s key works. A funny but scabrous attack on institutional Christianity, the movie was seized by authorities for “insulting the religion of the state” and Pasolini spent four months in prison for making it. (The title refers to ricotta cheese.) Orson Welles stars as a pompous film director shooting a biblical epic about the death of Jesus. He proves callously indifferent to the plight of the poor, starving extras who are acting in his Passion play. La Ricotta shows as part of a program that starts at 5:15 pm on Saturday. it will be preceded by Pasolini's What Are the Clouds? (Che cosa sono le nuvole?) (pictured above), a segment from the 1968 omnibus film Capriccio All' Italiana, in which Totò and Ninetto Davoli play puppets who comes to life. See both of these movies for one price: $12; Cinematheque members $9; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted.

Chaucer comes to the screen in Pasolini's version of THE CANTERBURY TALES
Pier Paolo Pasolini's 1972 film version of THE CANTERBURY TALES (1972) is a sexy, scatological, slapstick-laden comedy in which an all-star cast (Pasolini, Franco Citti, Laua Betti, Hugh Griffith, Tom Baker, et al.) brings some of Chaucer's randy tales -- of horny students, willing wives, and clueless old men -- to exuberant life. No one under 18 admitted will be admitted to this movie that has music by Ennio Morricone and shows in a new 35mm color print from Italy on Sunday at 3:45 pm. Special admission is $12; Cinematheque members $9; age 25-18 $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners will be accepted.
