 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

After the defeat of the Nazi’s in Naples, Italy, life for the locals becomes very hard, especially for many women who have to sacrifice their dignity and morale to survive. Based on the eponymous novel by Curzio Malaparte and featuring Marcello Mastroianni as Malaparte himself, Claudia Cardinale as Princess Consuelo Caracciolo and Burt Lancaster as General Mark Clark, The Skin brilliantly describes the difficult liaisons between the Allied Army and its Italian contingent. Director Cavani’s film is an unforgettable and controversial film, an unflinching look at the moral collapse of Italian society after WW II.

Down-and-out New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father and is stunned to find Mathilde (Maggie Smith), a refined 90-year-old resident lady, living there with her incredibly protective daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas). My Old Lady is the directorial debut of renowned playwright/screenwriter Israel Horovitz (Author, Author and The Strawberry Statement). Horovitz’s plays range from The Indian Wants the Bronx (which launched the careers of Al Pacino and the late John Cazale) to the more recent What Strong Fences Make. Dividing his time between the U.S. and France, Horovitz is billed as the most-produced U.S. playwright in French theater history. He was recently decorated as Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (France’s highest honor given to foreign artists).

Over the course of the 20th century, three generations of a family face tumultuous personal and political events as their lives unfold in the Sicilian town of Bagheria -- referred to as Baarìa by many locals.

“Tornatore is in love with his world, his characters and his landscape. Everything comes alive under his touch. He has an unerring ability to summon the dreams and aspirations of a young man fighting for his beliefs, while also reveling in the exuberance and comedy of existence. Baarìa captures the wonder of a lifetime of living.”

“Ravishingly photographed by Enrico Lucidi, with music by Ennio Morricone, it's glorious wallow in passionate nostalgia.”- John Walsh, The Independent, UK

“From the magical realist opening to the operatic finale, everything in this ravishingly photographed scrapbook of sun-kissed memories and picture-postcard nostalgia is sweeping, involving, romantic and disarmingly sentimental.” - Alan Jones, Radio Times

“Like Cinema Paradiso, which it resembles most in tone with respect to Tornatore's other work, what is most important here is capturing the small corner of the world that was the universe to the young Tornatore and showing how life always comes full circle, with each generation convinced it's reinventing the wheel.” - Natasha Senjanovic, AP, The Hollywood Reporter

Special screenings of BOYHOOD (Memorias de una vida) con subtítulos en español

A film by Richard Linklater
Cast:
Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke

USA | 2014 | 165 min. | Drama | Rated R
English with Spanish subtitles. Subtitulada al español.

Boyhood narra la historia de un grupo de actores en un viaje épico e íntimo a la euforia de la niñez, los sísmicos cambios de una familia moderna y el paso del tiempo. Es la historia de Mason desde los seis años, y durante una década poblada de cambios, mudanzas y controversias, relaciones que se tambalean, bodas, diferentes colegios, primeros amores, primeras desilusiones, momentos maravillosos, momentos de miedo y una constante mezcla de desgarro y de sorpresa. (Film Affinity)

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue, Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

A film by Israel Horovitz
Cast: Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maggie Smith

USA | 2013 | 104 min. | Comedy, Drama | PG-13
English with no subtitles

Down-and-out New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father and is stunned to find Mathilde (Maggie Smith), a refined 90-year-old resident lady, living there with her incredibly protective daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas). My Old Lady is the directorial debut of renowned playwright/screenwriter Israel Horovitz (Author, Author and The Strawberry Statement). Horovitz’s plays range from The Indian Wants the Bronx (which launched the careers of Al Pacino and the late John Cazale) to the more recent What Strong Fences Make. Dividing his time between the U.S. and France, Horovitz is billed as the most-produced U.S. playwright in French theater history. He was recently decorated as Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (France’s highest honor given to foreign artists).

Screenplay: Israel Horovitz, adapted from his play My Old Lady

A film by Woody Allen
Cast: Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Jacki Weaver

USA | 2014 | 97 min.| Romance, Comedy | PG-13
English with Spanish subtitles

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. Persuaded by his friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick Magic in the Moonlight plays is the one that fools us all.
The outstandingly beautiful French Riviera is musically highlighted by a rich soundtrack that includes pieces of Stravinsky, Ravel and Beethoven alongside American songbook standards (Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, among many others) always present in Allen´s films.

Screenplay: Woody Allen
Cinematography: Darius Khondji

“The summer's most beguiling romantic comedy. Colin Firth and Emma Stone make a magnetic pair of opposites. Emma Stone lights up the screen. Colin Firth is wonderfully appealing. The actors are a pleasure to be around.” –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review

“A high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d'Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Firth and Stone.”
-Scott Foundas, VARIETY | full review

“A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema, with a nimble and tender performance of enormous elegance and charm by Colin Firth that is heart-meltingly romantic.” - Rex Reed, New York Observer | full review

A film by Richard Linklater
Cast:
Ellar Coltrane, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke

USA | 2014 | 165 min. | Drama | Rated R
English with Spanish subtitles. Subtitulada al español.

Boyhood narra la historia de un grupo de actores en un viaje épico e íntimo a la euforia de la niñez, los sísmicos cambios de una familia moderna y el paso del tiempo. Es la historia de Mason desde los seis años, y durante una década poblada de cambios, mudanzas y controversias, relaciones que se tambalean, bodas, diferentes colegios, primeros amores, primeras desilusiones, momentos maravillosos, momentos de miedo y una constante mezcla de desgarro y de sorpresa. (Film Affinity)

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's Boyhood is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason, who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue, Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

A film by Guiseppe Tornatore
Cast: Francesco Scianna, Margareth Madè, Angela Molina, Raoul Bova, Giorgio Faletti, Enrico Lo Verso, Michele Placido

Italy | 2009 | 150 min. | Historic drama | Not rated
Italian with English subtitles

Over the course of the 20th century, three generations of a family face tumultuous personal and political events as their lives unfold in the Sicilian town of Bagheria -- referred to as Baarìa by many locals. Acclaimed writer-director Guiseppe Tornatore based his intimate comedy epic on his own experiences growing up in this village. Director of the Academy Award® winning Cinema Paradiso and the Oscar® nominated The Star Maker, Tornatore is a master storyteller known for his eye for detail and ability to capture life's magic moments. Featuring rich, sun-drenched cinematography, Baarìa is a soaring and moving tribute to Tornatore's hometown in Sicily. Baaria is the first Italian film to open Venice in nearly 20 years; it is also one of the most expensive movies ever made in Italy.

Screenplay: Guisepppe Tornatore
Cinematography: Enrico Lucidi
Editing: Massimo Quaglia
Music: Ennio Morricone

2010 Golden Globes, USA: Nominated, Best Foreign Language Film
2010 David di Donatello Awards: Won, David of the Youth, Best Music; Nominated, Best Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Ensemble Cast, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Editing
2010 European Film Awards: Nominated, Audience Award for Best Film
2009 Venice Film Festival: Opening Night Film; Won, Pasinetti Award for Best Director

“Tornatore is in love with his world, his characters and his landscape. Everything comes alive under his touch. He has an unerring ability to summon the dreams and aspirations of a young man fighting for his beliefs, while also reveling in the exuberance and comedy of existence. Baarìa captures the wonder of a lifetime of living.”
- Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival Catalogue

“Ravishingly photographed by Enrico Lucidi, with music by Ennio Morricone, it's glorious wallow in passionate nostalgia.”- John Walsh, The Independent, UK

“From the magical realist opening to the operatic finale, everything in this ravishingly photographed scrapbook of sun-kissed memories and picture-postcard nostalgia is sweeping, involving, romantic and disarmingly sentimental.” - Alan Jones, Radio Times

“Like Cinema Paradiso, which it resembles most in tone with respect to Tornatore's other work, what is most important here is capturing the small corner of the world that was the universe to the young Tornatore and showing how life always comes full circle, with each generation convinced it's reinventing the wheel.” - Natasha Senjanovic, AP, The Hollywood Reporter

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. Persuaded by his friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick Magic in the Moonlight plays is the one that fools us all.
The outstandingly beautiful French Riviera is musically highlighted by a rich soundtrack that includes pieces of Stravinsky, Ravel and Beethoven alongside American songbook standards (Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, among many others) always present in Allen´s films.

“Tornatore is in love with his world, his characters and his landscape. Everything comes alive under his touch. He has an unerring ability to summon the dreams and aspirations of a young man fighting for his beliefs, while also reveling in the exuberance and comedy of existence. Baarìa captures the wonder of a lifetime of living.”
- Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival Catalogue

“Ravishingly photographed by Enrico Lucidi, with music by Ennio Morricone, it's glorious wallow in passionate nostalgia.”- John Walsh, The Independent, UK

“From the magical realist opening to the operatic finale, everything in this ravishingly photographed scrapbook of sun-kissed memories and picture-postcard nostalgia is sweeping, involving, romantic and disarmingly sentimental.” - Alan Jones, Radio Times

“Like Cinema Paradiso, which it resembles most in tone with respect to Tornatore's other work, what is most important here is capturing the small corner of the world that was the universe to the young Tornatore and showing how life always comes full circle, with each generation convinced it's reinventing the wheel.” - Natasha Senjanovic, AP, The Hollywood Reporter

A film by Woody Allen
Cast: Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Jacki Weaver

USA | 2014 | 97 min.| Romance, Comedy | PG-13
English with Spanish subtitles

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. Persuaded by his friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick Magic in the Moonlight plays is the one that fools us all.
The outstandingly beautiful French Riviera is musically highlighted by a rich soundtrack that includes pieces of Stravinsky, Ravel and Beethoven alongside American songbook standards (Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, among many others) always present in Allen´s films.

Screenplay: Woody Allen
Cinematography: Darius Khondji
Editing: Alisa Lepselter

“The summer's most beguiling romantic comedy. Colin Firth and Emma Stone make a magnetic pair of opposites. Emma Stone lights up the screen. Colin Firth is wonderfully appealing. The actors are a pleasure to be around.” –Peter Travers, Rolling Stone | full review

“A high-spirited bauble that goes down easy thanks to fleet comic pacing, a surfeit of ravishing Cote d'Azur vistas and the genuinely reactive chemistry of stars Firth and Stone.”
-Scott Foundas, VARIETY | full review

“A master stroke of enchantment from one of the few legitimate cinematic geniuses of the modern cinema, with a nimble and tender performance of enormous elegance and charm by Colin Firth that is heart-meltingly romantic.” - Rex Reed, New York Observer | full review

“Ms. Stone is entrancing, whether Sophie is in or out of her trance state, and so is the movie as a whole.” -Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal | full review

Simon Bolivar fought over 100 battles against the Spanish Empire in South America. He rode over 70,000 miles on horseback. His military campaigns covered twice the territory of Alexander the Great.

MY OLD LADY

A film by Israel Horovitz
Cast: Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maggie Smith

USA | 2013 | 104 min. | Comedy, Drama | PG-13
English with no subtitles

Down-and-out New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father and is stunned to find Mathilde (Maggie Smith), a refined 90-year-old resident lady, living there with her incredibly protective daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas). My Old Lady is the directorial debut of renowned playwright/screenwriter Israel Horovitz (Author, Author and The Strawberry Statement). Horovitz’s plays range from The Indian Wants the Bronx (which launched the careers of Al Pacino and the late John Cazale) to the more recent What Strong Fences Make. Dividing his time between the U.S. and France, Horovitz is billed as the most-produced U.S. playwright in French theater history. He was recently decorated as Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (France’s highest honor given to foreign artists).

A film by Woody Allen
Cast: Colin Firth, Emma Stone, Marcia Gay Harden, Eileen Atkins, Hamish Linklater, Jacki Weaver

USA | 2014 | 97 min.| Romance, Comedy | PG-13
English with Spanish subtitles

Chinese conjuror Wei Ling Soo is the most celebrated magician of his age, but few know that he is the stage persona of Stanley Crawford (Colin Firth), a grouchy and arrogant Englishman with a sky-high opinion of himself and an aversion to phony spiritualists' claims. Persuaded by his friend, Howard Burkan (Simon McBurney), Stanley goes on a mission to the Côte d'Azur mansion of the Catledge family: mother Grace (Jacki Weaver), son Brice (Hamish Linklater), and daughter Caroline (Erica Leerhsen). He presents himself as a businessman named Stanley Taplinger in order to debunk the alluring young clairvoyant Sophie Baker (Emma Stone) who is staying there with her mother (Marcia Gay Harden). Sophie arrived at the Catledge villa at the invitation of Grace, who is convinced that Sophie can help her contact her late husband, and once there, attracted the attention of Brice, who has fallen for her head over heels. What follows is a series of events that are magical in every sense of the word and send the characters reeling. In the end, the biggest trick Magic in the Moonlight plays is the one that fools us all.
The outstandingly beautiful French Riviera is musically highlighted by a rich soundtrack that includes pieces of Stravinsky, Ravel and Beethoven alongside American songbook standards (Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, among many others) always present in Allen´s films.

Screenplay: Woody Allen
Cinematography: Darius Khondji

A film by Israel Horovitz
Cast: Kevin Kline, Kristin Scott Thomas, Maggie Smith

USA | 2013 | 104 min. | Comedy, Drama | PG-13

Down-and-out New Yorker Mathias Gold (Kevin Kline) inherits an apartment in Paris from his estranged father and is stunned to find Mathilde (Maggie Smith), a refined 90-year-old resident lady, living there with her incredibly protective daughter Chloe (Kristin Scott Thomas). My Old Lady is the directorial debut of renowned playwright/screenwriter Israel Horovitz (Author, Author and The Strawberry Statement). Horovitz’s plays range from The Indian Wants the Bronx (which launched the careers of Al Pacino and the late John Cazale) to the more recent What Strong Fences Make. Dividing his time between the U.S. and France, Horovitz is billed as the most-produced U.S. playwright in French theater history. He was recently decorated as Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (France’s highest honor given to foreign artists).

CINEMA ITALIA SERIES: Baarìa
Co-sponsored by Società Dante Alighieri, Cinema Italy Festival and MDC’s Tower Theater
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
SUGGESTED DONATION: $5 per person


A film by Guiseppe Tornatore
Cast: Francesco Scianna, Margareth Madè, Angela Molina, Raoul Bova, Giorgio Faletti, Enrico Lo Verso, Michele Placido

Italy | 2009 | 150 min. | Historic drama | Not rated
Italian with English subtitles

Over the course of the 20th century, three generations of a family face tumultuous personal and political events as their lives unfold in the Sicilian town of Bagheria -- referred to as Baarìa by many locals. Acclaimed writer-director Guiseppe Tornatore based his intimate comedy epic on his own experiences growing up in this village. Director of the Academy Award® winning Cinema Paradiso and the Oscar® nominated The Star Maker, Tornatore is a master storyteller known for his eye for detail and ability to capture life's magic moments. Featuring rich, sun-drenched cinematography, Baarìa is a soaring and moving tribute to Tornatore's hometown in Sicily. Baaria is the first Italian film to open Venice in nearly 20 years; it is also one of the most expensive movies ever made in Italy.

Screenplay: Guisepppe Tornatore
Cinematography: Enrico Lucidi
Editing: Massimo Quaglia
Music: Ennio Morricone

2010 Golden Globes, USA: Nominated, Best Foreign Language Film
2010 David di Donatello Awards: Won, David of the Youth, Best Music; Nominated, Best Film, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Ensemble Cast, Best Cinematography, Best Costume Design, Best Editing
2010 European Film Awards: Nominated, Audience Award for Best Film
2009 Venice Film Festival: Opening Night Film; Won, Pasinetti Award for Best Director

“Tornatore is in love with his world, his characters and his landscape. Everything comes alive under his touch. He has an unerring ability to summon the dreams and aspirations of a young man fighting for his beliefs, while also reveling in the exuberance and comedy of existence. Baarìa captures the wonder of a lifetime of living.”
- Piers Handling, Toronto International Film Festival Catalogue

“Ravishingly photographed by Enrico Lucidi, with music by Ennio Morricone, it's glorious wallow in passionate nostalgia.”- John Walsh, The Independent, UK

“From the magical realist opening to the operatic finale, everything in this ravishingly photographed scrapbook of sun-kissed memories and picture-postcard nostalgia is sweeping, involving, romantic and disarmingly sentimental.” - Alan Jones, Radio Times

“Like Cinema Paradiso, which it resembles most in tone with respect to Tornatore's other work, what is most important here is capturing the small corner of the world that was the universe to the young Tornatore and showing how life always comes full circle, with each generation convinced it's reinventing the wheel.” - Natasha Senjanovic, AP, The Hollywood Reporter

Screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove, Drive) makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul, 1962, and adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when wealthy American tourists Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his young wife Collete (Kirsten Dunst) meet American expat Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a scammer working as a tour guide. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple’s hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio’s allegiance is put to the test.

 “Human history is in essence a history of ideas” – H.G. Wells

This project focuses on the transformation of organic/non-organic evidence of our presence in the contemporary landscape through sculpture, drawing, print and film. Some of the oldest ways of expressing and documenting the human experience has been through mark making and print. Lines connecting like maps with other lines inter-connecting tracks, bridging between past, presence and futures.

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY

A film by Hossein Amini
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac

USA | 2014 | 96 min | Suspense, Drama | PG-13

Screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove, Drive) makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul, 1962, and adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when wealthy American tourists Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his young wife Collete (Kirsten Dunst) meet American expat Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a scammer working as a tour guide. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple’s hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio’s allegiance is put to the test.

Screenplay: Hossein Amini
Cinematography: Marcel Zyskind
Editing: Nicolas Chaudeurge, Jon Harris
Music: Alberto Iglesias

“SEDUCTIVE. A gripping old-school suspenser. Expertly blends touches of Hitchcock and Highsmith. What better way to see Turkey and Greece than in the company of such beautiful law-breakers?”
-Peter Debruge, Variety | full review

“Carefully directed and gorgeous to look at, with haunting performances and maximum suspense.”
-Rex Reed, New York Observer | full review

“It’s an elegantly pleasurable period thriller, a film of tidy precision and class.” -Tim Robey, The Telegraph | full review

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY

A film by Hossein Amini
Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst, Oscar Isaac

USA | 2014 | 96 min | Suspense, Drama | PG-13

Screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove, Drive) makes a stylish directing debut with this sleek thriller set in Greece and Istanbul, 1962, and adapted from Patricia Highsmith’s novel. Intrigue begins at the Parthenon when wealthy American tourists Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his young wife Collete (Kirsten Dunst) meet American expat Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a scammer working as a tour guide. Instead of becoming his latest marks, the two befriend him, but a murder at the couple’s hotel puts all three on the run together and creates a precarious bond between them as the trio’s allegiance is put to the test.

Screenplay: Hossein Amini
Cinematography: Marcel Zyskind
Editing: Nicolas Chaudeurge, Jon Harris
Music: Alberto Iglesias

2014 San Francisco International Film Festival: Official Selection

-Peter Debruge, Variety | full review

“Carefully directed and gorgeous to look at, with haunting performances and maximum suspense.”
-Rex Reed, New York Observer | full review

“It’s an elegantly pleasurable period thriller, a film of tidy precision and class.” -Tim Robey, The Telegraph | full review

“Taught and elegant. Unpredictable and emotionally rich.” -Fionnula Halligan, Screen Daily | full review

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Master Kariostami at full throttle, again

Directed by Abbas Kiarostami
Starring Tadashi Okuno, Rin Takanashi, Ryo Kase, Denden
Japan, France | 2012 | 109 min | Drama | Not Rated
Japanese with English subtitles

Fresh from of the triumph of his Tuscany-set Certified Copy, master filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami travels even further afield from his native Iran for this mysteriously beautiful romantic drama filmed entirely in Japan. Like Someone in Love revolves around the brief encounter between an elderly professor (Tadashi Okuno) and a sociology student (Rin Takanashi) who moonlights as a high-end escort. Dispatched to the old man by her boss—one of the professor’s former students—the young woman finds her latest client less interested in sex than in cooking her soup, and playing old Ella Fitzgerald’s records (like the one that gives the film its allusive title). Eventually, night gives way to day and a tense standoff with the student’s insanely jealous boyfriend (Ryō Kase); but as usual in Kiarostami, nothing is quite as it appears on the surface. Are these characters—who conjure in one another the specters of regret and roads not taken—meeting by chance, or is it fate? Is this love or merely something like it?

"Exquisitely made… An enchanting game of misfired passions and mistaken identities." - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

“Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love is an outstanding example of ‘mise-en-scene’, an almost forgotten art in cinematography that has gradually been replaced by different aesthetic values. Here, one is reminded of the masterful skill of Preminger, at the height of his career, but Like Someone In Love is not just a show of masterful craftsmanship. The film is concrete, physical and profoundly enigmatic.” –

“Masterfully beguiling, Like Someone in Love is a little gem of a film that explores how relationships and roles change depending on the needs, circumstances and desires of the people involved.” - Will McCord, Paste Magazine

The Writer’s Journey: How the Movies Can Make Us Better Writers with Nicholas Garnett (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Good stories don’t just happen, they’re crafted. We’ll look at the structure
of stories, particularly movies, and how that structure can be applied to writing,
with the acclaimed and influential book The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure
for Writers as our guide. Based on those principles, you’ll develop, share and
critique your own story summary and writing. This course is designed for any
level or ability, any genre and any place in the writing process.

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive.

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

The complete version, re-mastered by the director

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff
Starring David Bennent, Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, Daniel Olbrychski, Andréa Ferréol, Charles Aznavour

Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the current Director’s Cut reincorporates sequences and characters that novelist Günter Grass lobbied for - the Rasputin orgy and the crazed Treblinka survivor-disinfector Fajngold - from twenty-one minutes trimmed to the bin thirty years ago. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

“One of the ways in which the film is able to seem un-intimidated by the reputation of its source (Grass won a Nobel Prize in Literature; the film got a Best Foreign-Language Oscar®) stems from Schlondorff's decision to pitch it closer to Rabelais than Goethe as it visits the strife that rained down on Danzig (currently Gdansk, Poland),” - Jay Carr, Turner Classic Movies

She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot.

But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

"A moving and emotional powerhouse…War Witch packs a punch.” – Movieline

“In the middle of War Witch, there blooms a kind of love story that introduces a more rollicking side of African culture.” - Jay Stone, Postmedia News

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

“An incredibly compelling film about the changing face of Africa, with cultural spiritualism and violent oppression left to collide with fascinating results.” - Patrick Gamble, Cine Vue

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

The complete version, re-mastered by the director

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff
Starring David Bennent, Mario Adorf, Angela Winkler, Daniel Olbrychski, Andréa Ferréol, Charles Aznavour

Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, the current Director’s Cut reincorporates sequences and characters that novelist Günter Grass lobbied for - the Rasputin orgy and the crazed Treblinka survivor-disinfector Fajngold - from twenty-one minutes trimmed to the bin thirty years ago. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass’s acclaimed novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire.

Screenplay by Jean-Claude Carrière, Franz Seitz and Volker Schlöndorff, based on the novel by
Günter Grass

“One of cinema's greatest coming of age stories…” - Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com

“It stands with Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Marriage of Maria Braun as one of the finest German films of the 1970s.” - Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice

“Volker Schlöndorff is perhaps the most profound of the young German directors who rose in the 1970s, and his brilliant movie is artistically fascinating.” - Glenn Erickson, Film Savant

“His visual translation of Grass’ mix of stark realism and comic fantasy is truly brilliant. “ – Tim Sheridan, Paste Magazine

“One of the ways in which the film is able to seem un-intimidated by the reputation of its source (Grass won a Nobel Prize in Literature; the film got a Best Foreign-Language Oscar®) stems from Schlondorff's decision to pitch it closer to Rabelais than Goethe as it visits the strife that rained down on Danzig (currently Gdansk, Poland),” - Jay Carr, Turner Classic Movies

In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

The Writer’s Journey: How the Movies Can Make Us Better Writers with Nicholas Garnett (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Good stories don’t just happen, they’re crafted. We’ll look at the structure
of stories, particularly movies, and how that structure can be applied to writing,
with the acclaimed and influential book The Writer’s Journey: Mythic Structure
for Writers as our guide. Based on those principles, you’ll develop, share and
critique your own story summary and writing. This course is designed for any
level or ability, any genre and any place in the writing process.
Telling Your Story Part 2 (Advanced Fiction) with David Beaty (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

We'll read and discuss student stories and examine stories by modern masters
such as Hemingway, Alice Munro and Isaac Babel, paying close attention to
beginnings, middles and endings, style and theme. What makes a good beginning?
How can we develop a story? We'll concentrate on character creation and plot.
There will be short writing exercises in class, and students will be expected to
bring in their own stories to be read and discussed.
Writing Memoir with Kathie Klarreich (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Wolfson Campus

Let's go with the assumption that who we are today is the sum total of all our yesterdays. In this memoir-writing workshop, we'll go back and look at what those events, emotions, and incidents are that have ultimately made us unique. All you need is the willingness to reflect and the discipline to write. The rest will work itself out through guidance, discussion and a few solid writing techniques.

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.

“Nominated by the Academy as the year's best foreign-language film, No grabs you hard, no mercy, and keeps you riveted.” – Rolling Stone, Peter Travers

“Larraín's script is punctuated by dark bursts of humor, and the filmmaker knowingly navigates his audience to a nail-biting - though never cloying, and fully warranted - climax.” - Simon Miraudo, Quickflix

“Marshall McLuhan called advertising the greatest art form of the 20th century. In No, Pablo Larraín’s sly, smart, fictionalized tale about the art of the sell during a fraught period in Chilean history, advertising isn’t only an art; it’s also a way of life.” – Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“Larraín's unarguable point is that, in politics, if we wait for good to issue only from the pure in heart, we will be waiting a very long time.” - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

Tower Theater

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Rachel Mwanza, Serge Kanyinda, Alain Lino, Eli Bastien

Canada | 2012 | Digital | 90min | Drama, History | Not Rated
French, Lingala with English subtitles

Montreal-based filmmaker Kim Nguyen paints a poignant and harrowing portrait of Komona, a 14-year-old girl (wonderfully played by nonprofessional actress Rachel Mwanza) who has been kidnapped from her African village by rebels to become a child soldier. She escapes from the camp with an older albino soldier and experiences for the very first time the joys of a peaceful and loving life, but a fresh tragedy will force her to confront and fight the ghosts haunting her mind. Although inspired by a real story that took place in Burma, Nguyen decided to film War Witch in the Democratic Republic of the Congo without giving a specific location to the plot. He worked on the film for 10 years, watching and catching children's points of view with his camera and mixing in tightly edited flashbacks in which the spirits of human beings appear with an ultra-realistic and violent storyline. But War Witch is also a poignant and impossible love story filled with magic, picturesque images, and even light moments like the powerful visit to an albino camp or the chasing of a white rooster.

“Can films from Africa succeed in the West? War Witch proves the answer Is YES.” - Jonathan Curiel,
NPR, PBS

"A moving and emotional powerhouse…War Witch packs a punch.” – Movieline

“In the middle of War Witch, there blooms a kind of love story that introduces a more rollicking side of African culture.” - Jay Stone, Postmedia News

“Canadian-based writer Kim Nguyen, little known beyond fantasy fest circles, handles the material, displaying a maturity, panache and emotional marksmanship that will elevate his reputation several notches.” – Leslie Felperin, Variety

“Rachel Mwanza, an acting newcomer discovered on the streets of Kinshasa, guides the film naturally. Much of Nicolas Bolduc's observant cinematography focuses on the emotions subtly registered on her face. Mwanza faces the difficult task -- and rises to the challenge -- of at once showing feelings and smothering them.” - Beth Hanna, Thompson on Hollywood!

“An incredibly compelling film about the changing face of Africa, with cultural spiritualism and violent oppression left to collide with fascinating results.” - Patrick Gamble, Cine Vue

Breaching an icon’s privacy

Directed by Shannah Laumeister
Starring Marilyn Monroe, Drew Barrymore, Bert Stern, Sophia Loren, Madonna
USA | 2012 | 93 min | Documentary | Not Rated
English with no subtitles

Bert Stern, also known for his seminal film Jazz on a Summer's Day, experienced a meteoric career that began as a mailroom-boy at Look Magazine, where he formed a close relationship with young staff photographer Stanley Kubrick. The launch of Stern's career and the Golden Age of Advertising would coincide with Stern's iconic and legendary "Driest of the Dry" campaign for Smirnoff in 1955. Set against the backdrop of the Egyptian pyramids, this ad would sell more vodka than Smirnoff had dreamed, transforming America into a martini-sipping country and launching Stern to star photographer status at the age of 25. Sought after by Madison Avenue, Hollywood, and the international fashion scene, Bert was at the heart of what creative director George Lois called "the creative evolution." His groundbreaking images of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Marilyn Monroe, Twiggy and the infamous Lolita image from Kubrick's film, coupled with his astonishing success in advertising, minted Stern - along with Irving Penn and Richard Avedon - as a celebrity in his own right. indeed, Stern’s photographs of Monroe in her last sitting are considered to be the ultimate images of the 20th century icon. After marrying the stunning ballet dancer Allegra Kent, the kid from Brooklyn was sitting on top of the world...until a dramatic fall from grace.

“Original Madman is humorous, compelling, tragic and elegant in equal measures. Bert Stern is the man who, amongst other things, revolutionized American advertising; initiated the relationship between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and inspired America to become a nation of vodka drinkers.” - Daniel Harling, Take One

After their SS officer father and mother are taken by the victorious Allies at the end of World War II, five German children undertake a dramatic journey that exposes them to the reality and consequences of their parents' actions. Led by the eldest sibling, 14-year old Lore (striking newcomer Saskia Rosendahl), they set out on a harrowing exodus across a devastated country to reach their grandmother in the north. After meeting the charismatic, mysterious young refugee Thomas, Lore soon finds her world devastated by feelings of both hatred and desire as she must learn to trust the one person she has always been taught to hate in order to survive. Lush cinematography and an evocative, haunting mood infuse this unconventional take on the Holocaust legacy with unforgettable impact.
