City of God

November 4

Brazil | 2002 | Film: 130 minutes | Discussion: 30 minutes | Fernando Meirelles, Kátia Lund

In 2002 City of God provided a hyper-stylized view into the favela culture of Rio de Janeiro. The kinetic film still packs an emotional punch but the violence in the favelas became topical again as Brazil controversially attempted to 'clean up' it's slums for the World Cup. Our post-screening discussion will focus on not just the aftermath of Brazil's decision but also how any city can begin to effectively turn around the violence within a community in a more positive way.

Comin At Ya! 3D

November 28 - 30, 2014

Italy | 1980 | 91 Minutes | Ferdinando Baldi

The film that sparked the 1980s 3D revival returns in a newly restored version. This bonkers spaghetti western is pure lowbrow fun, and lives up to its name (even the exclamation point) through a relentless barrage of punching fists, flaming arrows, flying bats, bouncing bosoms, and a truly unforgettable diaper changing–all in 3D!

The Conformist

November 15

Italy | 1971 | 111 minutes | Bernardo Bertolucci

In Mussolini’s Italy, the repressed bourgeois Marcello Clerici, trying to purge memories of a youthful, homosexual episode (and murder), joins the Fascist Secret Service in a desperate attempt to fit in. When he accepts an assignment to kill a leftist professor exiled in Paris, he is forced to confront his own ambivalence. Stunning restoration of the Bertolucci masterpiece.
