Film: Burn! (¡Queimada!) (in 35mm)

May 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

$5 – $10

Special guest: Introduction by Writer and former AMPAS Vice President Larry Karaszewski.

Director Gillo Pontecorvo followed his classic The Battle of Algiers (1966) with this epic 19th century Caribbean drama, loosely inspired by real events. Marlon Brando plays Sir William Walker, a British mercenary sent to a Portuguese colony to stir up rebellion among its workers, who finds his loyalties torn between his assignment and the people he is betraying. The project was a particular favorite of Brando’s, who was instrumental in getting the troubled production completed, and Ennio Morricone contributed a typically distinctive and powerful score.

Please note we will be screening the English language version of the film.
