Chantal Akerman’s most recent film had the third highest overall metacritic.com score of 2012 (92 out of 100)! An adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s first novel (but updated by many decades), it’s a dreamy, hypnotic film about a brooding European treasure hunter living in the lush jungles of Southeast Asia who tries to reconnect with his estranged, embittered mixed-race daughter, now grown, when she returns home after being educated in Europe. “Five stars (highest rating)…Uniquely enthralling.” –Time Out New York. Subtitles.
Subtitles. 35mm. 127 min. Admission $9, members & CIA I.D. holders $7, age 25 & under $6; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
Akerman, who was scheduled to appear at the Cinematheque on Saturday, Oct. 19, has had to cancel her appearance.
