  • At 8.30 pm - Monsoon Wedding (India / 113 Minutes) - "A buoyant comedy of an Indian family preparing for a flamboyant (arranged) marriage, Monsoon Wedding finds the frenzied upper-middle-class Vernas of Delhi facing impending disaster. Wedding costs are spiraling out of control. The bride-to-be, who barely knows the groom, pursues a fling with her talk-show-host ex. Far-flung relatives descend on the family to further complicate matters. And family secrets threaten to burst into the open on the big day. Filmmaker Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!, Mississippi Masala) infuses this sprawling, uproarious story with humor, sensitivity and a clear-eyed take on the clash between tradition and modernity – brightened by a joyous soundtrack. Named the best movie romance of the 21st century by IndieWire. “Nair’s stereotype-shattering movie — like the polymorphous culture it illuminates — borrows from Bollywood, Hollywood and cinema verité, and comes up with something exuberantly its own.” – David Ansen, Newsweek"

Soaking up its bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, Allah introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible portraiture. Immersed into the sacred, the profane, and everything in-between, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history and the urgent present."

 

  • Wednesday, July 25, 2018 - The Young Girls of Rochefort (France / 1967) / Free
  • At 7 pm - "live music from Le Petit Pepinot and ... French food from Côté Soleil."

Blends romance, drama, comedy, and some aspects of a thriller into a wonderful, mesmerizing whole.” – Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine"

 

  • Wednesday, August 1, 2018 - Loveling (Brazil / 2018) / Free
  • At 7 pm - "Samba tunes from Os Clavelitos and food by Pao de Queijo."

Her teenage son Fernando is a local handball star and when he’s scouted to play professionally in Germany, the family has only a few weeks to ready his departure and say goodbye. Fernando’s leaving is a shock and a big change in Irene’s life but also a chance to see herself as a woman again and not just as a mother. Irene gets her high-school diploma, finds a new job and pushes forward with plans for a new family home. As she flourishes, things begin to look up for her family as well. Irene understands that while some things come to an end, new things start and the future is bright as long as they stick together.”

  • At 7 pm - "live music by Albert Alabedra & Noemí Pérez and food by In Patella."
  • At 8 pm - The Spirit of Beehive (Spain / 95 Minutes) - "In a tiny village on the desolate Castilian plain in 1940, two young sisters eagerly file into the town hall for the visiting cinema truck’s screening of Frankenstein – the original Karloff version, dubbed into Spanish – with elder Isabel explaining to rapt 6-year-old Ana that the monster is really a spirit who dons his body like it was a suit of clothes. Later they explore a remote, mysterious barn, put their ears to the tracks to hear distant trains, and learn from dad to discriminate between good and deadly mushrooms. But as mom continually cycles to the railroad station to post missives to a person unknown and as dad falls asleep at his desk writing up accounts of his beekeeping, Ana conjures up her own monster/spirit. A sensitive, sublime evocation of the poignancy of childhood. “Arguably the finest and most beautifully wrought first film of the European ‘70s, a mysterious crucible.” – The Village Voice."

 

  • Wednesday, August 15, 2018 - Tampopo (Japan / 1985) / Free
  • At 7 pm - "bossa nova tune from Masafumi Sakai."
  • At 8 pm - Tampopo (Japan / 114 Minutes) - "This “Noodle Western” is an exploding piñata of gags on two eternal favorites – food and sex. Ramen joint owner Tampopo embarks on her relentless quest for the perfect noodle, with plenty of tangents on how to cook a delicious rice omelet before the night watchman comes in; how to enhance bedroom delights with a raw egg; and how dreams of yam sausage can assuage the aftereffects of a bullet fusillade. Don’t see this on an empty stomach. “Gleefully sensual and inventive. A  garden of sensual delights that plays like a romp through a surreal amusement park. Creates a culinary empire of the senses while entertaining an audience like crazy.” – Michael Sragow, Film Comment."

  • At 7 pm - "music by Richard Khuzami & Friends."
  • At 8 pm - Kedi (Turkey / 79 Minutes) - "The street cats of Istanbul: hundreds of thousands of them roam Turkey’s megacity freely, wandering in and out of people’s lives, an essential part of the communities that make the city so rich. In KEDI, filmmaker Ceyda Torun and her nimble cinematographer, Charlie Wuppermann, train their prowling, cat’s eye-level cameras on the stories of seven such felines — Sari, Bengü, Aslan Parçasi, Psikopat, Deniz, Gamsiz, and Duman— stalking these peripatetic creatures through streets, alleyways, deserted basements, and rooftops. “Delightful and visually splendid” – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME."

 

  • Wednesday, August 29, 2018 - The Passionate Thief (Italy / 1960)- Free
  • At 7 pm - "music by Le Nozze di Carlo and food by Manducatis Rustica."
  • At 8 pm - The Passionate Thief (Italy / 105 Minutes) - "This recently restored Italian comedy classic follows an all-night New Year’s Eve in Rome, led by force-of-nature Anna Magnani as a desperate-to-be-noticed movie extra just released from her stint on a swords-and-sandals, cheapo epic at the Cinecittà studio. Glamming out with a blonde wig, silver fox stole, and bespangled evening gown, she quickly falls for dapper pickpocket Ben Gazzara, who enlists her on-the-skids fellow thesp Totò to help roll the revelers. Through the long night, the trio encounter drunken Yank Fred Clark at the Trevi Fountain (in send-up of Fellini’s La Dolce Vita), perform an impromptu music hall turn, wade through an assortment of lavish parties, and peek in at early mass in their festive odyssey across Rome."
