SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

CABIN IN THE SKY  - Director: Vincente Minnelli, U.S. (1943) (NR) 98 min. Musical. Stars: Ethel Waters, Eddie Anderson, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong.  One of only six all-black musicals produced in the Hollywood studio era, Cabin in the Sky was Minnelli’s big break. With reservations about the script’s racial stereotypes, the director infused the fantastic tale with imagination and exuberance, making it a showcase for outstanding performances by some of the greatest black actors and musicians of the 1940s. Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

DAWN OF THE DEAD  - Director:  George A. Romero, U.S. (1979) (UR) 125 min. Horror. Stars: David Emge, Ken Foree, Scott Reiniger.   A Halloween double header!

DIVINE INTERVENTION  - Director: Elia Suleiman, France/Morocco/Germany/Palestine (2002) (NR) 92 min. Drama. Stars: Elia Suleiman, Manal Khader, George Ibrahim.  Divine Intervention follows ES, a character played by the Palestinian filmmaker himself.

FRANKENSTEIN  - Director: James Whale, U.S. (1931) (NR) 71 min. Horror.  Stars: Boris Karloff, Mae Clarke, John Boles. For this classic Universal horror film, Whale took total control over both the screenplay and the production design to plumb the subject’s visual possibilities for the macabre. But the film’s terror is not gruesome, nor is its monster particularly frightful. Rather, Frankenstein is wholly sympathetic, his fairytale-like birth and demise portrayed by Karloff with chilling eloquence. Selected in 1991 for the United States National Film Registry. Introduced by Rebecca Willoughby, Visiting Assistant Professor in Bucknell’s English department. Part of the BU Tuesday Evening Film/Media Studies Series.  $2 admission

LOVE IS STRANGE (R) 94 min  -  Drama   Director: Ira Sachs, Stars: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei .|After Ben and George get married, George is fired from his teaching post, forcing them to stay with friends separately while they sell their place and look for cheaper housing -- a situation that weighs heavily on all involved.

MEMENTO - Director: Christopher Nolan, U.S. (2000) (R) 113 min. Thriller.  Stars: Guy Pearce, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pantoliano.  The anterograde amnesiac protagonist of Nolan’s breakthrough/cult/neo-noir hit hunts his wife’s killer, and his own identity. The film plays mind-bending narrative tricks, portraying two strands of the same story, simultaneously running backwards and forwards in time.  Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968) UR - 96 min  -  Horror  Director: George A. Romero, Stars:  Duane Jones, Judith O'Dea, Karl Hardman.  George A. Romero's debut set the template for the zombie film, and features tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent. This film tells the story of a small town community theatre troupe who are premiering Mrs. Frankenstein -- a bombastic original musical -- during the annual Halloween celebration. Following a bizarre event which causes the town to be overrun by a horde of zombies, the remaining survivors barricade themselves in the theatre, fighting for their lives.  Together, they must fend off zombie attacks as well as confront their own personal issues if they are going to have any chance of survival. Costume contest at 8pm! FREE!  Co-presented by the Campus Theatre & the Bucknell Community Engagement Fund

ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW (R) 1975, 100 min, Comedy/Musical, Directed by Jim Sharman.  Starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick.  A newly engaged couple have a breakdown in an isolated area and must pay a call to the bizarre residence of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.

SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW (Sarah Christman; U.S. 2012, 50 min.) Filmmaker Sarah J. Christman in Person on Tuesday, November 18th at 7pm! Christman’s delicate rumination on the nature of mortality focuses on the ecological impact of human consumption. Several years after her husband's death from cancer, the filmmaker’s mother has a "memorial diamond" created through a process that extracts, purifies, and compresses carbon from human remains. Christman weaves this personal story into an exploration of various physical transformations in places such as Dead Horse Bay, where waste seeps out of the shoreline; Staten Island’s Fresh Kills landfill, now an in-process public park; and a Belgian recycling plant where precious metals are salvaged from obsolete electronics. Co-sponsored by the Bucknell Center for Sustainability and the Environment.  Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

THE BAND WAGON (1953) (NR) 112min. 35mm. Musical. Director: Vincente Minnelli Starring: Fred Astaire, Cyd Charisse, Oscar Levant. Rather than the forced transition from silent to sound pictures depicted in Singin' in the Rain (1952), here the world of entertainment is unsettled by the takeover of theaters by penny arcades. Amidst these changes, Fred Astaire’s once-celebrity musical-comedy performer now goes unrecognized; the middle-aged dancer—joined by a witty Comden-and-Green-like writing team (Nanette Fabray and Levant) and a prima ballerina (Charisse)—makes a last-ditch attempt to revive his career by starring in a pretentious, ultra-modern version of Faust in Minnelli’s expressionistic musical about the making of a musical.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO (2012) (NR) 90min. Drama/Horror. Director: Peter Strickland Stars: Toby Jones, Cosimo Fusco. A mild-mannered sound engineer arrives in Rome to supervise the soundtrack for a 1970s exploitation horror film called The Equestrian Vortex. But the film-within-the-film is never seen; instead it is left to our imaginations to supply visual analogues for the bloodcurdling screams, squishes, sizzles and splatters that we hear. The suggestive power of sound and an increasingly unhinged protagonist become ever more unsettling as the story’s line between cinema and reality blur Strickland’s meta-horror film, which established the director as an important new voice in British cinema. In English and Italian with English subtitles.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

*BEYOND RIGHT AND WRONG: Stories of justice and forgiveness  (2012)  51 min. Documentary. Director: Lekha Singh and Roger Spottiswoode. In the stillness after conflict, after the blood dries and the screams fade, the memory of violence transforms survivors into prisoners of their own pain. How do whole societies recover from devastating conflict? Can survivors live—converse, smile, and even laugh—beside someone who blinded them, killed their parents, or murdered their children? Can victims and perpetrators work together to rebuild their lives? This life-changing documentary explores the intersections of justice and forgiveness as survivors heal from these tragedies. Sponsored by Bucknell Senior, Gabby Palumbo and Bucknell's Managing for Sustainability Program - Free

THE BLOOD OF JESUS (1941) (NR) 57min. Drama. Director: Spencer Williams.  Stars: Spencer Williams, Cathryn Caviness, Juanita Riley. Named by the Library of Congress to the National Film Registry in 1991, this salvation drama was shot in Texas on a shoestring budget, and “is probably the most popular movie made for African American audiences before World War II... It is the first feature by writer-director Spencer Williams, later a star of TV's Amos 'n' Andy, whose films have been vastly underappreciated despite his unique ability to capture Black religious and cultural practices while experimenting with film style" (Jacqueline Stewart, film historian and National Film Preservation Foundation Board Member).  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

CITY OF GOD (2002) (NR) 129 min. Drama. Directors: Fernando Meirelles, Katia Lund Stars: Alexandre Rodrigues, Leandro Firmino, Phellipe Haagensen. Rio de Janeiro, the world's most notorious slum, is a place where combat photographers fear to tread, police rarely go and residents are lucky if they live to the age of 20. Within this world a young boy grows up to discover he has the ability to view the harsh realities of his surroundings with an artistic eye. In the face of impossible odds, his ambition to become a professional photographer may be his only way out. Portuguese with English subtitles.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS (1989) (PG-13) 104min. 35mm. Comedy/Drama. Director: Woody Allen Stars: Woody Allen, Alan Alda, Martin Landau. Clearly influenced by his admiration for Ingmar Bergman’s cinematic worldview – an absent God and the universe's indifference to the problems of mere mortals – Allen conceived a story in which Manhattanites grapple with alternately shocking and hilarious philosophical quandaries concerning adultery. The ensemble piece features Mia Farrow, Sam Waterston, Angelica Huston and more. “The movie's secret strength - its structure, really - comes from the truth of the dozens and dozens of particular details through which it arrives at its own very hesitant, not especially comforting, very moving generality.”  – Vincent Canby, New York Times. Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST (1951) (NR) 115 min. 35mm Drama. Director: Robert Bresson. Stars Claude Laydu, Nicole Maurey, Jean Riveyre, André Guibert. A new priest arrives in a French country village to attend to his first parish and is immediately rejected by the apathetic and hostile rural congregation. Through his diary entries, the suffering young man relays a crisis of faith that threatens to drive him away from the village and from God. With his fourth film, Bresson began to implement his stylistic philosophy, stripping away inessential elements from his compositions, dialogue and music, exacting a purity of image and sound. French with English subtitles.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

 

EAT (1964) (NR) 39min. 16mm. Documentary. Director: Andy Warhol Stars: Robert Indiana. Painter Robert Indiana (more famous for his Love paintings and sculptures than the Eat canvases and signs that preceded them), starved himself before Warhol’s shoot only to be given a single mushroom and asked to make it last as long as possible, while Warhol shot nine rolls of film. Indiana obliged. “Eat works exactly as a session of Zen meditation might, exhausting viewers’ mental barriers and defenses in order to open them up to a new level of awareness – the better to enjoy the portrait… Like all of Warhol’s early minimal film works, Eat is a film about the mind.” – Andy Ditzler, Frequent Small Meals program notes.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD (2007) (NR) 100min. 35mm. Documentary. Sent to the formidable landscape of the South Pole by a National Science Foundation commission, Herzog interviewed a cast of unusual characters living at McMurdo Station, a 1000-person settlement of researchers. The sublime and absurd aspects of the precarious nature of human existence on this planet are examined in Herzog’s documentary, which, he assures us, is “not a film about fluffy penguins.”   A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

FORCE MAJEURE (2014) (NR) 118min. DCP Comedy/Psychodrama. Director: Ruben Östlund. Stars: Johannes Bah Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Clara Wettergren. A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. When an avalanche suddenly bears down on the family, its patriarch acts in a way that shakes his marriage to its core. Östlund’s chronicling of the fallout has earned him comparisons to such masterful cinematic social critics as Michael Haneke and countryman and mentor Roy Andersson. Swedish/English/French with English subtitles. Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

FRANKENSTEIN (Suitable for 15+) 2 hours 20 mins    Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, Slumdog Millionaire), Frankenstein features Benedict Cumberbatch (12 Years A Slave, Star Trek: Into Darkness, BBC’s Sherlock) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting, Mansfield Park, CBS’s Elementary) alternating roles as Victor Frankenstein and his creation.  National Theatre Live’s thrilling broadcast of Frankenstein returns to cinemas for a limited time, due to unprecedented audience demand.  The production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011, and the broadcast has since become an international sensation, experienced by almost half a million people in cinemas around the world.  Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Meeting with cruelty wherever he goes, the friendless Creature, increasingly desperate and vengeful, determines to track down his creator and strike a terrifying deal.   Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.   Sponsored by Bucknell University’s Departments of Art and Art History, Classics, English, Theatre and Dance, the Bucknell Arts Council, the Bucknell Innovation Group and the Office of the Provost.  

FUNNY GAMES (1997) (NR) 109min. Horror. Director: Michael Haneke Stars: Susanne Lothar, Ulrich Mühe, Arno Frisch. German, French, Italian with English subtitles.  One of Haneke’s most controversial and provocative films (remade by the director in a 2007 American version starring Naomi Watts), Funny Games is a harrowing portrayal of an upper-middle class Austrian family visited by two cold-blooded men who proceed to amuse themselves by torturing them psychologically and physically. Implicating his viewers in the unfolding events, Haneke tests his belief that "insofar as truth is always obscene, I hope that all of my films have at least an element of obscenity.... Pornography, it seems to me, is no different from war films or propaganda films in that it tries to make the visceral, horrific, or transgressive elements of life consumable."  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

*GARY SAVES THE GRAVEYARD  (R)  50 min.   Comedy | Horror |  Director: Todd Bieber    Stars: Jim Santangeli   As the new janitor of a graveyard, Gary discovers that he must serve as caretaker to the 235 living corpses-- including his childhood best friend-- who come to life each night.

Christman in Person on Tuesday, November 18th at 7pm!  Just below the surface of one of the most contaminated urban waterways in the United States, microorganisms thrive amidst the toxic waste. Christman combines elegant observations of the Gowanus Canal by day – iridescent oil-slicks and bargemen going about their work – with works by artist and environmental researcher Jenifer Wightman.  Co-sponsored by the Bucknell Center for Sustainability and the Environment.  Part of the BU Tuesday evening Film Series - $2

IMITATION OF LIFE (1959) (NR) 125min. 35mm. Drama. Director: Douglas Sirk Stars: Lana Turner, Sandra Dee, Susan Kohner, Juanita Moore. Sirk’s deeply moving and deeply American melodrama revisits Fannie Hurst’s popular 1933 novel (first adapted for film by John Stahl in 1934). The story follows an aspiring actress (Turner), her domestic servant and a respected leader of her black community (Moore) and their daughters, as they struggle to survive and find their place in New York City.  Sirk’s pessimistic yet profoundly sympathetic look at American class and race relations laments the causes and repercussions of a young woman’s desperate attempts to pass for white.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

JUKE JOINT (1947) (NR) 68min. Drama. 35mm. Director: Spencer Williams. Stars: Spencer Williams, July Jones, Inez Newell. Williams’ last film as a director is a con-artist tale; he disappeared from the industry for four years before taking the role of Andy on CBS’s short-lived Amos n' Andy series. Preserved by the Library of Congress.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

KITCHEN (1965) (NR) 66min. 16mm. Documentary. Director: Andy Warhol Stars: Edie Sedgwick, Electrah, Rene Ricard. Filmed in the New York City kitchen of Bud Wirtschafter, soundman on several early Warhol films, Kitchen was intended to be the vehicle that would propel Edie Sedgwick to stardom. As it happened, Edie had difficulty memorizing her lines, improvised much of her performance, sneezed continuously and burned her hand on the stove–sending the proceedings into a directionless narrative as Warhol’s odd cast of characters offer various remedies on how to deal with the burn.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

LOVE IS STRANGE (R) 94 min  -  Drama   Director: Ira Sachs, Stars: John Lithgow, Alfred Molina, Marisa Tomei .|After Ben and George get married, George is fired from his teaching post, forcing them to stay with friends separately while they sell their place and look for cheaper housing -- a situation that weighs heavily on all involved.

THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS (1942) (NR) 88min. 35mm. Drama. Director: Orson Welles. Stars: Joseph Cotten, Dolores Costello, Anne Baxter. Welles’ portrait of a midwestern town’s transformation amidst the onslaught of the industrial age “uses the full weight [of the director’s] Gothic style” to transform Booth Tarkington’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel into a “dark, almost nervous film” (James Naremore). As time inexorably passes, the aristocratic Ambersons remain stuck in a decaying past while Eugene Morgan (Cotten) invents the automobile and finds fortune. His frustrated love for Isabel Amberson (Costello) is mirrored in the next generation when his daughter meets Isabel’s bratty son at the grand Amberson ball.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening - Free

THE SUN SHINES BRIGHT (1953) (NR) 90min. Drama. 35mm. Director: John Ford Stars: Charles Winniger, Arleen Whelan, Dorothy Jordan, Stepin Fetchit. Ford’s portrayal of a white man’s intercession for a black teenager accused of raping a white woman is set in a less than idyllic South, in a small Kentucky town in the early 1900s. The film’s treatment of moral courage, communal penance and lynch mob terrorism is refracted through the director’s concerns about a post-war America on the cusp of the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the Civil Rights Movement. For years John Ford claimed The Sun Shines Bright was his best picture. 35mm restored print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Preservation funding provided by The Film Foundation and the AFI/NEA Preservation Grants Program.  A BU Film Media Studies course screening – Free

THIS IS NOT A FILM (2011) (NR) 75min. 35mm. Documentary. Director: Jafar Panahi. In 2010, Jafar Panahi, among the most influential contemporary Iranian filmmakers, was accused of collusion against the Iranian regime, sentenced to six years in jail and banned from making films for 20 years. While appealing his sentence, and under house arrest, Panahi made this clandestine documentary, shot partially on an iPhone and smuggled into France in a cake for a last-minute submission to Cannes. The film, a collaboration with documentarian Mojtaba Mirtahmasb, is a day-in-the-life chronicle, a statement of political and moral conviction and a reflection on the meaning of the art of filmmaking.

THE WIND WILL CARRY US (1999) (NR) 118min. DCP. Documentary. Director: Abbas Kiarostami. Stars: Behzad Dorani, Noghre Asadi, Roushan Karam Elmi. Palme d'Or winning-director Abbas Kiarostami’s acclaimed film documents the arrival of an engineer and his colleagues from Tehran in a remote village in Iranian Kurdistan.
