B-ginnings. New 4K Restoration!

DEMENTIA 13

United States | 1963 | Francis Coppola

This early film from the director of The Godfather and Apocalypse Now is a Roger Corman-produced Psycho knock-off that was shot in and around a creepy Irish castle. It’s an atmospheric thriller about a mysterious axe murderer and a coveted family fortune. Patrick Magee co-stars. It will be preceded at showtime by the film’s original prologue—a test to determine whether the audience has the moral fortitude to watch Dementia 13! Cleveland revival premiere. Total 70...

The Complete Jean Vigo. New 4K Restorations!

ZERO FOR CONDUCT

France | 1933 | Jean Vigo

Four boys organize an uprising at a repressive French boarding school in Jean Vigo’s first feature (see 9/29 at 6:50), a lyrical, anarchic classic. Banned in France from 1933 to 1945, it inspired Lindsay Anderson’s anti-establishment 1968 classic If… This new restoration includes shots that were cut from subsequent release prints because of length or censorship. Zero for Conduct will be preceded at showtime by Vigo’s two short films, the mini city symphony À...

Pioneers: First Women Filmmakers. New Digital Restorations!

WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN?

United States | 1916 | Lois Weber, Phillips Smalley

A hit in NYC but banned in Pennsylvania, this inflammatory “social problem” film by the prolific and proficient Lois Weber (see 9/8 at 5:00 pm) addresses the still timely issues of birth control and abortion (and touches, uncomfortably, on eugenics). A district attorney butts heads with an abortionist after the D.A.’s brother-in-law impregnates a family servant. The film was added to the National Film Registry in 1993. Preceded at 5:00 by Mabel Normand’s 23-min. comedy...

SCARRED HEARTS

Romania | 2016 | Radu Jude

Radu Jude’s follow-up to his arthouse hit Aferim! is set at a Romanian sanitarium on the Black Sea in 1937. There a young Jewish man suffering from spinal tuberculosis embraces life as much as he can while sick and in a body cast. He smokes and drinks; interacts with caretakers, other patients, and former patients; and even falls in love. Outside the hospital, society drifts toward anti-Semitism, Fascism, and war. From the semi-autobiographical book...

SHOW BOAT

United States | 1936 | James Whale

Paul Robeson’s rendition of “Ol’ Man River” is just one of many highlights in James Whale’s definitive film version of the classic Jerome Kern/Oscar Hammerstein musical about life on a Mississippi riverboat from the 1880s to the 1920s. Irene Dunne, Allan Jones, Helen Morgan, and Hattie McDaniel co-star. The movie, co-presented by The Musical Theater Project, will be introduced at 3:00 by TMTP Artistic Director Bill Rudman, who will also lead a post-film discussion. A...

Film Classics in 35mm! Jerome Kern x 2! Grafton Nunes introduces

SWING TIME

United States | 1936 | George Stevens

This is very possibly the best of the ten Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers musicals, containing a superb Jerome Kern/Dorothy Fields score and such classic dance numbers as “A Fine Romance,” “Never Gonna Dance,” “Bojangles of Harlem,” and the Oscar-winning “The Way You Look Tonight.” At 6:30, film scholar and Cleveland Institute of Art President Grafton Nunes will introduce the movie, one of his all-time favorites, which is co-presented by The Musical Theater Project. He will also...

TARGETS

United States | 1968 | Peter Bogdanovich

Peter Bogdanovich’s prescient first feature intercuts the story of a psychopathic sniper with that of a has-been horror movie star (Boris Karloff) who has retired because scary films can no longer compete with the terrors of everyday life. The two narratives converge in an edge-of-your-seat climax at a drive-in movie theater. “A contemporary horror classic.” –Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film. Adults only! 90 min.

Iran | 2017 | Vahid Jalilvand

The socially and psychologically penetrating films of Asghar Farhadi are evoked in this acclaimed new Iranian feature about a medical examiner haunted by the unexpected death of a child that he possibly could have prevented. “A handsomely made, exceptionally well-played drama…Explores questions of culpability and responsibility in a society constantly playing on the edge of the rule of law.” –Variety.

Silent Film with Live Music! New Digital Restoration! Goblin’s Maurizio Guarini accompanies

DANTE’S INFERNO

Italy | 1911 | Francesco Bertolini, Adolfo Padovan, Giuseppe de Liguoro

Goblin keyboardist Maurizio Guarini presents a live performance of his original score to the first-ever feature film produced in Italy—a surreal and still-shocking adaptation of the most infamous section of Dante’s The Divine Comedy! This milestone silent movie features a series of spectacular scenes, as Virgil leads Dante through the nine circles of Hell. Almost Bosch-like in its grotesquerie, the film boasts striking and unusual visual effects, astounding sets, and a huge cast of extras,...

Sweden | 1973 | Ingmar Bergman

Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson star in Ingmar Bergman’s raw, penetrating, semi-autobiographical dissection of a disintegrating marriage.

MILLA

France | 2017 | Valérie Massadian

“Milla is a major achievement, a film that is at once as delicate as it is strong, a fitting testament to motherhood, to survival.” So says The NY Times about this new French movie that charts—in a series of quiet, naturalistic, oblique, often tender, poetic scenes—a young woman’s drift from carefree, penniless teen living with her boyfriend on the margins of society to poor working mother facing responsibility and compelled to engage with society.

Canada, Germany, Norway | 2016 | Rob Tregenza

This deliberately paced, meticulously shot (in 35mm color & scope) new art film is a tale of grief, love, friendship, and literature. The movie focuses on two couples—a German widower and his Chinese translator wife, and a Norwegian tour guide and his pregnant girlfriend—who are brought together by the poetry of Norwegian writer Tarjei Vesaas (1897-1970) to traverse a series of majestic, haunted Nordic landscapes. The film’s title is a foreign word that illustrates the...

France, Italy | 1953 | Jean-Pierre Melville

Never before translated into English or released in the U.S., this missing link in the Melville filmography stars French singer and actress Juliette Gréco as a devout and morally upright nun-in-training who leaves the convent to return home and attend to a family emergency. She soon becomes embroiled in sexual assault, attempted suicide, and blackmail—all revolving around a womanizing, ne’er-do-well boxer and mechanic (Philippe Lemaire). Cleveland premiere. Subtitles.

THE COLOR OF POMEGRANATES

USSR | 1969 | Sergei Paradjanov

Episodes from the life of 18th-century Armenian poet and minstrel Sayat-Nova are rendered as a series of gorgeous color tableaux teeming with religious and regional iconography in Sergei Paradjanov’s one-of-a-kind visual spectacle. Banned for years in the USSR, where it hastened the director’s subsequent arrest and imprisonment on trumped-up charges, this movie has been newly restored to the cut closest to Paradjanov’s original vision. Voted the 84th greatest film of all time in Sight &...
