Special Offsite Event! The Cinematheque at the Capitol Theatre

The Dust of Time

Trilogia Ii: I Skoni Tou Hronou
Germany, Greece, Italy, Russia | 2008 | Theo Angelopoulos

The Dust of Time

Willem Dafoe, Bruno Ganz, Michel Piccoli, and Irène Jacob star in the last completed film by the late, great Greek filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos. The second part of a planned trilogy that Angelopoulos was finishing when he died in 2012 (2004’s virtuosic The Weeping Meadow was the first part), The Dust of Time follows a Greek-American movie director (Dafoe) as he attempts to tell his mother’s life story on screen—specifically, her love for two men during an epic odyssey through Greece, the USSR, Germany, and America during the second half of the 20th century. As in other Angelopoulos historical dramas, the past parallels the present and time is a river of dreams, memories, and flashbacks. This major work has never been distributed in the U.S., so don’t miss this rare chance to see it!
