  • October 1, 2023, 2:00 pm: À Nos Amours

    Sandrine Bonnaire portrays a 15-year-old Parisian girl, Suzanne, who escapes from her volatile homelife and agonizing confusion about love and its complexity. As her coping mechanism, Suzanne falls into a pattern of impulsive promiscuity which makes her unsentimental and cynical to the idea of love in relation to sexuality. À Nos Amours is far from the conventional coming-of-age narrative, with director Maurice Pialat’s perspective on the intricate matters he is scrutinizing conveyed in exceptionally insightful and brutally honest fashion.

    DIRECTED BY: Maurice Pialat. WRITTEN BY: Arlette Langmann, Maurice Pialat. WITH: Sandrine Bonnaire, Evelyne Ker, Maurice Pialat. 1983. 100 min. France. Color. French. Rated R. DCP.

  • October 1, 2023, 7:30 pm: Cinema Paradiso (Nuovo Cinema Paradiso)

    Giuseppe Tornatore wrote and directed this story of a young man and his lifelong love affair with cinema, the winner of the 1990 Foreign Language Film Oscar. Salvatore “Toto” Di Vita is the son of a small-town war widow; his friendship with the local projectionist (Philippe Noiret), as well as his love for a banker’s daughter, change the course of his life. The first of 10 films that Ennio Morricone would score for Tornatore, the maestro’s swooningly romantic work includes an original love theme by his son Andrea, who would continue the family legacy as a film composer in his own right.

    DIRECTED/WRITTEN BY: Giuseppe Tornatore. WITH: Philippe Noiret, Jacques Perrin, Antonella Attili, Salvatore Cascio. 1988. 123 min. Italy/France. Color. Italian. Rated PG. 4K DCP. Courtesy of Cinecittà, 4K digital restoration by Cinecittà

  • October 2, 2023, 8:00 pm: Futura

    Initially modeled in the style of Edgar Morin and Jean Rouch’s Chronicle of a Summer (1961), established 21st century Italian filmmakers Pietro Marcello (whose Martin Eden screens in this series on September 13), Francesco Munzi (Black Souls) and Alice Rohrwacher (see her Happy as Lazzaro on September 11) set out to ask youth across Italy about their future. When the outbreak of the coronavirus upsets life globally, the three filmmakers pause shooting and pivot their mission, ultimately creating a film that captures, perhaps more poignantly than any made during the pandemic, the reality of life for teens and young adults during this unique moment in history.

    DIRECTED/WRITTEN BY: Pietro Marcello, Francesco Munzi, Alice Rohrwacher. 2021. 105 min. Italy. Color. Italian. DCP.

  • October 4, 2023, 7:30 pm: Menace II Society

    Selected by the Writers Branch.

    Caine (Tyrin Turner) is an amoral young drug dealer in South Los Angeles whose life—and that of his sociopathic best friend, O-Dog (Larenz Tate)—spirals into an escalating series of crimes after a pointless double murder. Screenwriter Tyger Williams was 24 when the film—from a story by 21-year-old twin directors Allen and Albert Hughes—was released, and his nihilistic look at contemporary urban life made a huge impact on audiences while updating the gangster genre for a modern era. Lisa Rinzler provided the bold cinematography, and the powerhouse supporting cast includes Jada Pinkett, Bill Duke, Charles S. Dutton, and Samuel L. Jackson.

    DIRECTED BY: Allen Hughes, Albert Hughes. WRITTEN BY: Tyger Williams. STORY BY: Allen Hughes, Albert Hughes, Tyger Williams. WITH: Tyrin Turner, Jada Pinkett, Larenz Tate, Bill Duke. 1993. 97 min. USA. Color. English. Rated R. 35mm.
