8/28-31: Finding Vivian Maier, Stand Clear of the Closing Doors & more!

08/26/14  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

Children grow into terrorists in potent, moving award winner HORSES OF GOD Nabil Ayouch's powerful, affecting, and cinematic drama HORSES OF GOD (which has a 100% “fresh” rating on RottenTomatoes) imagines how four young friends living in the slums of Morocco morphed into suicide bombers who participated in the notorious Casablanca bombings of 2003, during which 45 died. A multiple prizewinner at various international film festivals, this was also Morocco's official entry for this year's Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. Salon.com calls it "one of the most forceful entries in a growing body of cinema that interrogates the causes and effects of terrorism, nationalism, and fundamentalism in the Arab world." Catch its exclusive Cleveland premiere on Friday or Saturday. Here's the trailer.

FINDING VIVIAN MAIER exposes reclusive but remarkable Chicago photographer Vivian Maier (1926-2009), the mysterious Chicago woman who turned out to be one of America's great street photographers (100,000 unpublished photos and negatives, shot over five decades, were discovered after her death), is the subject of the new documentary FINDING VIVIAN MAIER. The movie probes Maier's secret life and prodigious output. Entertainment Weekly calls the film "more connect-the-dots detective thriller than traditional doc...Unmasks a brilliant photographer who hid in plain sight for decades working as an eccentric French nanny." See it Saturday or Sunday. Watch the trailer here.

In ELENA Brazilian woman tries to find out what happened to her sister in NYC In Petra Costa's lavishly praised new film ELENA, a Brazilian actress goes to NYC to discover what happened to her older sister Elena, who left Brazil for New York two decades earlier to become a dancer and movie star. Incorporating interviews, letters, diary entries, and rare video clips, this dreamy film is a delicate inquiry into one family's most intimate memories, secrets, and sorrows. The Hollywood Reporter calls ELENA "an elegiac cinematic essay that is both haunting and unforgettable." See it 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). Here's the trailer.

Teen with Asperger's loses himself in NYC in STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS In Sam Fleischner's STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING DOORS, a 13-year-old Mexican-American boy with Asperger's syndrome wanders into the NYC subway system, losing himself for days in the cacophony, strangeness, and menace of the underground. Back home in Rockaway Beach, his undocumented mother frantically tries to locate him—as Hurricane Sandy approaches the city. This acclaimed, impressionistic, suspenseful indie drama may one day be remembered as one of the great New York movies. The New York Times designated Stand Clear of the Closing Doors a "Critic's Pick," calling it "a small miracle of a film." Watch the trailer here.

Meek businessman accidentally kills man in Jean Grémillon's 1938 French classic THE STRANGE MONSIEUR VICTOR In Jean Grémillon's noirish psychological suspense drama THE STRANGE MONSIEUR VICTOR, a mild-mannered French businessman (Raimu) decides to cut his ties to local mobsters and clean up his act when his wife (Madeleine Renaud) gives birth to their first child. But his good intentions go awry when he inadvertently kills a man, and an innocent person (Pierre Blanchar) is convicted of the crime, rendering the shopkeeper confused and guilt-ridden. On Saturday and Sunday this 1938 French classic concludes our short series "Jean Grémillon in the Thirties." Don't miss it in a rare 35mm print imported from the Institut Français. Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members, CIA I.D. holders, and age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
