World War I + 100! New digital restoration!
France | 1919 | Abel Gance
The great, pioneering French director Abel Gance (Napoleon) was no one-hit wonder! His first super-production was this galvanizing anti-war silent film that was partially shot during actual WWI battles. The movie follows the fates of two Frenchmen who love the same women and are both sent off to war. This powerful, haunting work, one of the most technologically advanced movies of its era, was also the first great pacifist film. With a new orchestral score and English intertitles. DCP. Approx. 150 min. Special admission $10; members, CIA & CSU I.D. holders, age 25 & under $8; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.
