CITIZENFOUR (R) 114 min, Documentary. Director: Laura Poitras; Stars: Edward Snowden adn Jacob Appelbaum. In January 2013, Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Executive Produced by Steven Soderbergh.

Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man's life. Andrew's passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability – and his sanity.

SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS
A DEPRESSION IN THE BAY OF BENGAL (1996 - NR) 28 min. Documentary. Director: Mark LaPore. “I went to Sri Lanka with the idea that I would remake Basil Wright's and John Grierson's 1934 documentary Song of Ceylon. After spending three months there I realized just how impossible that would be… I have made a film about travelling and living in a distant place which looks at aspects of daily life and where the [ethnic] war shadows the quotidian with a dark and rumbling step” (Mark LaPore). A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/ FOREST OF BLISS) – Free
A MARRIED COUPLE (1969 - NR) 96 min. Documentary. Director: Allan King. Stars: Billy Edwards, Antoinette Edwards, Bogart Edwards. King’s documentary is a benchmark of direct-cinema filmmaking: a shocking portrait of a young, middle class Toronto couple’s combative marriage, as well as a document of the moment when entrenched gender roles began to crumble. Former bohemians Billy and Antoinette squabble about sex, money, their son, even how to use a vacuum. They are seemingly uninhibited by the presence of King’s film crew, yet the question of how much conflict is being performed for the benefit of the camera is as unavoidable here as it is in all of King’s “actuality dramas.” A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/CRITICAL MASS) – Free
BIG EYES (PG-13) 106 min, Bio/Drama. Director:Tim Burton; Stars: Amy Adams, Christoph Waltz, Krysten Ritter BIG EYES is based on the true story of Walter Keane who was one of the most successful painters of the 1950s and early 1960s. The artist earned staggering notoriety by revolutionizing the commercialization and accessibility of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The truth would eventually be discovered though: Keane's art was actually not created by him at all, but by his wife, Margaret. BIG EYES centers on Margaret's awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work. Amy Adams - Golden Globe Winner Best Actress!
CRITICAL MASS (1971 - NR) 25 min. Comedy. Director: Hollis Frampton. Stars: Frank Albetta and Barbara DeBenedetto. “As a work of art I think [Critical Mass] is quite universal and deals with all quarrels (those between men and women, or men and men, or women and women, or children, or war). It is war! ... It is one of the most delicate and clear statements of inter-human relationships and the difficulties of them that I have ever seen. It is very funny, and rather obviously so. It is a magic film..." – Stan Brakhage. A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/A MARRIED COUPLE) – Free
DOWNS ARE FEMININE (1993 - NR) 9 min. Animation. Director: Lewis Klahr. “Klahr's oneric collages graft '70s porn of pallid stubbly flesh flagrantly onto Good Housekeeping/Architectural Digest decor, interior states where characters despoil themselves in Quaalude interludes of dreamy couplings... The whole atmosphere is pervaded with euphoria, a hopelessness without despair, a contentment beyond longing" (Mark McElhatten).A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/FIREWORKS & PARIS IS BURNING) – Free
DUCK SOUP (1933 - NR) 80 min. Comedy. Director: Leo McCarey. Stars: Groucho, Harpo, Chico, and Zeppo Marx, Margaret Dumont. Invited to present a film in the Tuesday series, Bucknell Provost Mick Smyer chose the Marx Brothers’ seminal 1933 political satire Duck Soup. From the zaniest comedy team in film history comes this absurd anti-war story, in which Groucho is appointed Prime Minister of Freedonia, and promptly declares war on the neighboring Sylvania over the love of a rich widow. It’s complete comic anarchy, with brother Zeppo as the fearless leader’s sidekick and Harpo and Chico playing spies (one who never talks, the other a spy who talks too much). The immaculate timing and riotous hilarity of the Marx Brothers’ shtick calls for viewing with an audience – bring the whole family! Part of the BU Film/Media Series - $2 admission
*FILM NOIR SCREENING Title to be determined! Please check the Campus Theatre and Bucknell Film/Media Series website (http://bufilm.blogs.bucknell.edu) for more information. A BU Independent Film Programming and Exhibition course screening – Free
FIREWORKS (1947 - NR) 15 min. Psychodrama. Director: Kenneth Anger. Arguably the most groundbreaking work from the pioneering filmmaker who influenced directors such as Martin Scorsese, David Lynch and RW Fassbinder. “In Fireworks I released all the explosive pyrotechnics of a dream. Inflammable desires dampened by day under the cold water of consciousness are ignited that night by the libertarian matches of sleep and burst forth in showers of shimmering incandescence” (Kenneth Anger). A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/PARIS IS BURNING & DOWNS ARE FEMININE) – Free
FOREST OF BLISS (NR) 90 min. Documentary. Director: Robert Gardner. Gardner shaped his finest work so that it occupies the time between two sunrises, immersing the viewer in an intense aural and visual statement “about people being and also dying” (Gardner) and boldly challenging ethnographic cinema’s conventions by using neither voice-over commentary nor subtitles. Filmed in the holy Indian city of Benares, Forest of Bliss observes the daily activities punctuating the lives of the humans, marigolds, dogs and cows that populate the city, giving equal attention to the sacred Ganges river, upon whose shores children fly kites and men bathe and pray. A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/A DEPRESSION IN THE BAY OF BENGAL) – Free
FOXCATCHER (R) 129min, Bio/Drama/Sport, Director: Bennett Miller; Stars: Steve Carell, Channing Tatum, Mark Ruffalo. The greatest Olympic Wrestling Champion brother team joins Team Foxcatcher led by multimillionaire sponsor John E. du Pont as they train for the 1988 games in Seoul - a union that leads to unlikely circumstances.
GRAVITY (PG-13) 91 min. Thriller. Director: Alfonso Cuarón. Stars: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney. Cuarón’s minimalist space thriller employs silence, stillness, a cast of two, C.G.I., computer animation and a variety of new lighting and photography techniques to Academy award winning effect (the film won 7 Oscars in the 2014 ceremony). Tethered to the survivor of a space mission gone very wrong, Gravity drifts and then rockets between humor and terror, ultimately seeking gravitas from the horror of solitude and death. A BU Intro to Film/Media Studies course screening – Free
HAPPY FEET (PG) (2006) 108 min. Animated/Comedy/Family. Directors: George Miller, Warren Coleman; Stars: Elijah Wood, Brittany Murphyand Hugh Jackman. In the world of the emperor penguin, a simple song can mean the difference between a lifetime of happiness and an eternity of loneliness. When a penguin named Mumble is born without the ability to sing the romantic song that will attract his soul mate, he'll have to resort to some fancy footwork by tap dancing his way into the heart of the one he loves. FREE, donation of Hats & Gloves appreciated! Sponsored by Sweet Frog and ProCare.
HISTORY IS MADE AT NIGHT (NR) 97 min. Romance. Director: Frank Borzage. Stars: Charles Boyer, Jean Arthur, Colin Clive, Leo Carrillo. History is Made at Night is "not only the most romantic title in the history of the cinema but also a profound expression of its director’s commitment to love over probability" (Andrew Sarris). When the ever graceful Charles Boyer intervenes in a conniving husband’s attempt to pin adultery on his wife (played by the effervescent Jean Arthur) a real love triangle, one worthy of jealousy, develops. Borzage, perhaps cinema’s most supreme painter of impossible desire, veers deliriously from screwball comedy to melodrama, from suspense to disaster – plotting his way toward the film’s primary goal: bringing two lovers together. Bring your Valentine! 35mm preservation print courtesy of the UCLA Film & Television Archive. Part of the BU Film Media Series - $2 admission
**IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT (UR) 105 min, Romance/comedy. Director Frank Capra; Stars Clark Gabil & Claudette Colbert.

For more information or to RSVP please contact Megan at email@example.com or 570-522-6281. A Sensory-Friendly Screening sponsored by Geisinger ADMI – FREE (RSVP requested)
LIGHT IS WAITING (NR) 12 min. Found Footage. Director: Michael Robinson. “A very special episode of television's Full House devours itself from the inside out, excavating a hypnotic nightmare of a culture lost at sea. Tropes of video art and family entertainment face off in a luminous orgy neither can survive” (Michael Robinson). A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/ POINT OF ORDER) – Free
THE LIMEY (1999 - R) 89 min. Thriller. Director: Steven Soderbergh. Stars: Terence Stamp, Luis Guzman, Lesley Ann Warren. Soderbergh’s complex crime thriller cuts back and forth between the present day and a backstory constructed with footage from Ken Loach’s Poor Cow, a 1967 film starring Terence Stamp as a thief named Wilson who goes to jail and has a daughter. In The Limey, an older Stamp, playing an ex-con named Wilson, travels to Los Angeles to investigate the death of his estranged daughter. The trail leads to the girl’s former boyfriend (Peter Fonda), a record producer/drug dealer who responds by sending a hit man after his pursuer. A BU Intro to Film/Media Studies course screening – Free
MAIDAN (NR) 131 min. Documentary, Director: Sergei Loznitsa. 131 min. Ukrainian with English subtitles. Acclaimed filmmaker Sergei Loznitsa chronicles 90 crucial days of the civil uprising that toppled the government of Ukrainian president Victor Yanukovich and has since developed into an international crisis between Russia and the West. Loznitsa and his cameraman were in Kiev’s Independence Square (Maidan) for the peaceful demonstrations in November 2013 – described by the director as a euphoric expression of “solidarity, camaraderie and an authentic spirit of freedom” – and for the bloody street battles that erupted following the government’s January 2014 ultimatum. Filmed in stunning long takes, without commentary, Maidan is a monumental record of a momentous historical event. Co-presented with Bucknell’s Russian Studies Program. Introduced by Slava Yastremski, Bucknell Professor of Russian. Screening will be preceded by a 6:00pm Panel and Reception with two Penn State University guests: Michael Naydan, Waskob Professor of Ukrainian Studies and Catherine Wanner, Barry Director of the Paterno Fellows Program. Part of the BU Film/Media Series - $2 admission
THE MALTESE FALCON (NR) 100 min. Noir. Director: John Huston. Stars: Humphrey Bogart, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre. The rules of the game keep changing in this proto film noir. Screenwriter-turned-director John Huston helmed the third adaptation of Dashiell Hammett's novel, a screen version whose ensemble acting plays no small part in its iconic stature. Bogart’s Sam Spade established the private detective persona in the genre of the same name, Mary Astor is luminously intelligent and Peter Lorre’s cosmopolitan crook is at once menacing and comic. Preservation print from the original negative by the Library of Congress. A BU Intro to Film/Media Studies course screening - Free
PARIS IS BURNING (R) 78 min. Documentary. Director: Jennie Livingston. Stars: Carmen and Brooke, Andre Christian, Dorian Corey. Livingston's exploration of the Christopher Street piers and the Harlem drag balls of the late 1980s pays tribute to the vibrant New York City fashion subculture that inspired Madonna's hit single “Vogue.” While competitions between Black and Latino gay men and transgender women, in categories like "Realness," "Face" "Model's Body" and "Executive Realness," reveal the construction of identity around gender, race and class, Livingston poignantly celebrates how an urban community engenders creativity and pride. A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/FIREWORKS & DOWNS ARE FEMININE) - Free
POINT OF ORDER! (NR) 97 min. Documentary. Director: Emile de Antonio. Constructed entirely from CBS kinescopes covering the 1954 Army-McCarthy hearings, this political cinema landmark eschews expert testimony and narration. Which is not to say it is objective. To the contrary, de Antonio’s two-year editing process distilled 188 hours of televised footage to a 97-minute tour de force that simultaneously indicts the American government and exposes American television as political theater. A BU Documentary and Avant-Garde course screening (screening w/ LIGHT IS WAITING) - Free
SELMA (PG-13) 128 min, Bio/Drama/History. Director: Ava DuVernay, Stars: David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth. SELMA is the story of a movement. The film chronicles the tumultuous three-month period in 1965, when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. led a dangerous campaign to secure equal voting rights in the face of violent opposition. The epic march from Selma to Montgomery culminated in President Johnson (Tom Wilkinson) signing the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most significant victories for the civil rights movement. Director Ava DuVernays SELMA tells the real story of how the revered leader and visionary Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (David Oyelowo) and his brothers and sisters in the movement prompted change that forever altered history.
THE SINGING BLACKSMITH (NR) 105 min. Musical. Director: Edgar G. Ulmer. Stars: Moishe Oysher, Miriam Riselle, Florence Weiss. Yiddish with English subtitles. Moishe Oysher, the renowned cantor and star of Yiddish radio, stars in Ulmer’s musical version of David Pinski’s play Yankl der Shmid (1906). Singing, dancing, and flashing his eyes, Oysher gives a robust performance as a passionate shtetl blacksmith who must struggle against temptation in order to become a mensch. Recently rediscovered footage makes this the most complete extant version of Ulmer’s lively folk operetta, replete with an example of Yiddish swing and a special opening poetry reading by Leo Melamed, a Yiddish child actor who would grow up to become the Chairman Emeritus of the CME Group (formerly the Chicago Mercantile Exchange). Film restoration by The National Center for Jewish Film, www.jewishfilm.org. Co-sponsored by Bucknell’s Department of Languages, Cultures & Linguistics. Introduced by Professor of Jewish Studies Rivka Ulmer. Part of the BU Film/Media Series - $2 admission
TREASURE ISLAND (10+) 2 2/1 hrs.- Robert Louis Stevenson’s story of murder, money and mutiny is brought to life in a thrilling new stage adaptation by Bryony Lavery, broadcast live from the National Theatre. It’s a dark, stormy night. The stars are out. Jim, the inn-keeper’s granddaughter, opens the door to a terrifying stranger. At the old sailor’s feet sits a huge sea-chest, full of secrets. Jim invites him in – and her dangerous voyage begins. Admission: Adults, $15 (Adults with children 10-14, $10); Seniors, $12; Students $10, with student ID $5.
WHIPLASH (R) 107 min, Drama/Music. Director: Damien Chazelle, Stars: Miles Teller, J.K. Simmons, Melissa Benoist. Andrew Neyman is an ambitious young jazz drummer, single-minded in his pursuit to rise to the top of his elite east coast music conservatory. Plagued by the failed writing career of his father, Andrew hungers day and night to become one of the greats. Terence Fletcher, an instructor equally known for his teaching talents as for his terrifying methods, leads the top jazz ensemble in the school. Fletcher discovers Andrew and transfers the aspiring drummer into his band, forever changing the young man's life. Andrew's passion to achieve perfection quickly spirals into obsession, as his ruthless teacher continues to push him to the brink of both his ability-and his sanity.
WILD (R) 115 min, Bio/Drama, Director: Jean-Marc Vallée; Stars: Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern, Gaby Hoffmann. With the dissolution of her marriage and the death of her mother, Cheryl Strayed has lost all hope. After years of reckless, destructive behavior, she makes a rash decision. With absolutely no experience, driven only by sheer determination, Cheryl hikes more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail, alone. WILD powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddens, strengthens, and ultimately heals her.
