SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS

ALI: FEAR EATS THE SOUL (1973) (NR) 93 min. Drama.  Director: Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Germany. Stars: Brigitte Mira, El Hedi Ben Salem, Irm Hermann.  A beautiful homage to Douglas Sirk’s classic melodrama All That Heaven Allows, Fassbinder’s improbable love story pairs a German widow with a Moroccan immigrant twenty years her junior. The prejudice and discrimination they encounter from all sides reveals a cracked humanity in this seminal work of the German New Wave. German with English subtitles.  Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

CACHE (2005) (R) 117 min. Thriller.  Director: Michael Haneke, France.  Stars: Daniel Auteuil, Juliette Binoche, Maurice Bénichou. Winner of the Best Director prize at Cannes, Haneke’s thriller unearths France's colonialist guilt and present-day racism via its depiction of an affluent couple tormented by anonymous calls, disturbing drawings and surveillance tapes. Each clue points to an ugly secret, leading to the film’s famously enigmatic final shot. French with English subtitles.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

EPIC (PG) 2013 - 102 min  -  Animation | Adventure | Family; Director: Chris Wedge, Stars: Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Beyoncé Knowles.  A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group of characters in order to save their world -- and ours.  Sensory Friendly Screening sponsored by Geisinger’s Autism & Developmental Medicine Institute and NEW STORY.  Free & Open to the Public.- RSVP requested  - meepler@geisinger.edu  or calling (570) 522-6281.   

HALLELUJAH (1929) (NR) 109 min. Musical.  Director: King Vidor, U.S. Stars: Daniel L. Haynes, Nina Mae McKinney, William E. Fountaine.  This MGM musical was the first of its kind for a major Hollywood studio: shot on location in the South with an all-black cast. Its tale of a minister on the revival circuit, whose troubled past comes back to haunt him, may invite criticism for its stereotypes, but it was a labor of love for Vidor, who worked without salary and hired African-American advisers with his own money.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

HIGH SCHOOL II (1994) (NR) 220 min. Documentary.  Director: Frederick Wiseman, U.S.   Twenty-five years after his Vietnam-era portrait of a Philadelphia high school, America’s greatest documentarian focused on a successful alternative high school in New York’s Spanish Harlem. In the immediate aftermath of the Rodney King verdict, the racially diverse student body and teachers discuss Shakespeare, conflict resolution and how to accommodate a fifteen-year-old mother’s return to school.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.        

THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY (PG) 122 min  -  Drama.  Director: Lasse Hallström, Stars:  Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal.  The Kadam family clashes with Madame Mallory, proprietress of a celebrated French restaurant, after they open their own nearby eatery, until undeniable chemistry causes the Madame to take gifted young chef Hassan under her wing.

IT FELT LIKE LOVE (2013) (NR) 82 min. Drama. Director: Eliza Hittman, U.S. Stars: Gina Piersanti, Giovanna Salimeni, Ronen Rubinstein.  Turning “the coming-of-age formula into a foreboding nightmare" (Indiewire), Hittman has proven herself a talent to watch, a new voice in American independent film distinctive for its unflinching honesty, refreshingly unsentimental tone and adept visualization of the furtive, longing world of adolescence. During a languid Brooklyn summer, 14-year-old Lila pursues her sexual awakening, her overt advances in pursuit of an older boy unmasking her inexperience, quiet desperation and vulnerability. Part of the BU Tuesday Evening Film/Media Studies Series.  $2 admission

LATE SPRING (1949) (NR) 108 min. Drama.  Director: Yasuziro Ozu, Japan.  Stars: Chishu Ryu, Setsuko Hara, Yumeji Tsukioka.   One of the most powerful of family portraits from one of cinema’s greatest directors, Late Spring tells the story of a widowed father who feels compelled to marry off his beloved only daughter. Eminent Ozu players Chishu Ryu and Setsuko Hara command this poignant tale of love and loss in postwar Japan. Japanese with English subtitles.     Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT (PG-13) 97 min  -  Comedy | Drama | Romance.  Director: Woody Allen, Stars: Colin Firth, Antonia Clarke, Natasha Andrews.  A romantic comedy about an Englishman brought in to help unmask a possible swindle. Personal and professional complications ensue.

THE MAN WITH A MOVIE CAMERA (1929) (NR) 67 min. Documentary. Director: Dziga Vertov, U.S.S.R .  One of the most innovative and influential films of the silent era, Vertov’s masterpiece is startlingly modern, its groundbreaking style of rapid editing and incorporation of innumerable cinematic effects creating a brilliant and exhilarating dawn-to-dusk montage of the Russian metropolis.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

*MORE THAN HONEY  (2013) (NR) 91 min. Documentary.  Multiple languages with English subtitles. Director: Markus Imhoof Oscar-nominated director Markus Imhoof tackles the vexing issue of why bees are facing extinction. He investigates the global phenomenon from California to Switzerland, China and Australia. Exquisite macro-photography (reminiscent of Microcosmos) of the bees in flight and in their hives reveals a fascinating, complex world in crisis. Introduced by Elizabeth Capaldi Evans, Associate Professor of Biology & Animal Behavior.  Co-Presented by the Bucknell Film/Media Series and the Department of Biology and Program in Animal Behavior. Free & Open to the Public.

POLICEMAN (2011) (NR) 105 min. Thriller. Director: Nadav Lapid, Israel.  Stars: Yiftach Klein, Yaara Pelzig, Michael Mushonov.  Three years after the Village Voice named Policeman one of the five must-see films of the New York Film Festival, the film is finally receiving its U.S. release.  Considering an unwell body politic, Lapid’s narrative segues adventurously from a soon-to-be father and member of an elite anti-terrorist squad to a group of bourgeois youths decrying Israeli socio-economic disparities. When the film’s two simmering halves meet, Israel’s routine clash with the "Palestinian enemy" is replaced with a threat from revolutionaries who “represent a side of Israel foreign not only to Yaron, but to the paradigm of national cinema Lapid is confronting” (Mark Peranson).  Co-presented with Campus Jewish Life, with support from the Kalman Jewish Life and Learning Fund, and Hillel. Screening as part of Bucknell’s Israeli Film Series, running through November.  Hebrew with English subtitles. Part of the BU Tuesday Evening Film/Media Studies Series.  $2 admission - FREE Popcorn & Soda  sponsored by BU Campus Jewish Life . 

WONDER BAR (1934) (NR) 84 min. Musical.  Director: Lloyd Bacon, U.S.  Stars: Al Jolson, Kay Francis, Dolores Del Río.  A pre-Code escapist musical set among denizens of a Parisian night club, Wonder Bar features Busby Berkeley's "Goin' to Heaven on a Mule'' production number (with Jolson in blackface) and the shimmering Mexican actress and Hollywood star Dolores Del Río. Murder, romance and racial stereotypes abound. Preserved by Library of Congress.   Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.

WRITTEN ON THE WIND (1956) (NR) 99 min. Melodrama.  Director: Douglas Sirk, U.S.   Stars: Robert Stack, Dorothy Malone, Rock Hudson, Lauren Bacall.   Sirk’s always elegant depiction of human despair and loneliness embraces the Hadleys, a family wracked by spiritual degradation. Stack, the oil-rich clan’s alcoholic son, and his best friend (the humbler, sensible Hudson) are both are in love with the radiant Bacall – to the chagrin of Malone, the other miserable Hadley in Sirk’s sublime melodrama.    Bucknell Univ. Film/Media Studies Course Screenings - Free & Open to the Public.
