SYNOPSES OF UPCOMING FILMS
**NT LIVE: BEHIND THE BEAUTIFUL FOREVERS (PG) 2 ¾ hrs. Pulitzer Prize-winner Katherine Boo spent three years in Annawadi recording the lives of its residents. From her uncompromising book, winner of the National Book Award for Non-Fiction 2012, David Hare has fashioned a tumultuous play on an epic scale. India is surging with global ambition. But beyond the luxury hotels surrounding Mumbai airport lies a makeshift slum, full of people with plans of their own. Zehrunisa and her son Abdul aim to recycle enough rubbish to fund a proper house. Sunil, twelve and stunted, wants to eat until he’s as tall as Kalu the thief. Asha seeks to steal government anti-poverty funds to turn herself into a ‘first-class person’, while her daughter Manju intends to become the slum’s first female graduate. But their schemes are fragile; global recession threatens the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller is about to make an accusation that will destroy herself and shatter the neighbourhood.
MCFARLAND USA (PG) 129 min. Drama, Sport. Director: Niki Caro; Stars: Kevin Costner, Maria Bello, Ramiro Rodriguez. An inspirational sports drama and true story of the 1987 McFarland high school cross country team who against-all-odds transform into championship contenders.
**OUT OF THE PAST (U.S. 1947) 97 min. 35MM. Director: Jacques Tourneur; Stars: Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, Kirk Douglas. Another quintessential noir title, Out of the Past is a dark, dark film. Crafted by the vision of cinematographer Nicholas Musuraca, who would also shoot the influential horror film Cat People (1942) for Tourneur, Out of the Past is a performance in shadows. Former private detective Jeff Bailey (Mitchum) attempts to hide from his difficult past by working as a gas station attendant in a small California town. Unfortunately, his former employer (Douglas) tracks him down, and through a beautifully-noir flashback we see their shared past, which revolves around devastating femme fatale Kathie Moffat (Greer). FREE and Open to the Public.
THE SECOND BEST MARIGOLD HOTEL (PG) 122 min. Comedy, Drama. Director: John Madden; Stars: Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy. As the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has only a single remaining vacancy - posing a rooming predicament for two fresh arrivals - Sonny pursues his expansionist dream of opening a second hotel.
TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT (PG-13) 95 min. Drama. Directors: Jean-Pierre Dardenne, Luc Dardenne; Stars: Marion Cotillard, Fabrizio Rongione, Catherine Salée. Sandra (Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. The only way Sandra can hope to regain her position is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses.

BUCKNELL FILM/MEDIA STUDIES SCREENINGS & FILM SERIES

INTRO TO FILM MEDIA STUDIES - MONDAYS AT 7:00 PM - FREE/OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
BUS 174 - 35MM - José Padilha and Felipe Lacerda (Brazil 2002) 122 min. Portuguese with English subtitles. Padilha’s detailed account of a Rio bus holdup in 2000, an event whose triangulated negotiations between hijacker, hostages and police were broadcast live on Brazilian TV networks, is one of the country’s most widely acclaimed documentaries. Padilha’s telling of the story embraces the tension of a remarkable true crime story while also looking at the hijacker’s childhood and some of the deep challenges to law and order in Rio – from soaring urban crime to police abuse. April 20
Student Showcase 2015 - Please join us for Bucknell's end-of-semester student film screening. Students enrolled in "Introduction to Film/Media Production" will be sharing their final films with the Lewisburg and Bucknell community. A range of approaches and topics will be explored in these short form videos. April 27
BUCKNELL FILM/MEDIA SERIES - TUESDAYS AT 7:00 PM - $2 ADMISSION
THIRTEEN LAKES – Film Historian Scott MacDonald in Person! 16MM James Benning (U.S. 2005) 135 min. For four decades, James Benning has played a central role in the history of American independent cinema by offering rigorously structured, conceptually minimalist and gracefully wondrous meditations on the American landscape and its social and environmental histories. 13 Lakes presents as many bodies of water from across the United States – each chosen for its unique historical, ecological and geographical characteristics and offered to the viewer in static, 10-minute long shots. As an experience, the film is a seductive invitation to enter a richly nuanced and intimate contemplation of the mystery of the natural world. 13 Lakes was added to the National Registry in 2014. Co-sponsored by Bucknell’s Programs in Environmental Studies, Place Studies and the Center for Sustainability and the Environment. April 14 - 7:30pm
DIVIDE IN CONCORD - Kris Kaczor (U.S. 2014) 82 min. This tale of a “bottled water ban battle” follows the widely publicized efforts of Jean Hill, a local eighty-four year-old activist trying to stop the sale of single-serve plastic bottles in Concord, Massachusetts, site of the 1775 “shot heard round the world” that began a Revolution, and of Henry David Thoreau, father of environmentalism. In the 21st century, many Concord residents recycle, but chafe at the idea of being disallowed the freedom to decide what to buy. Chronicling Hill’s untiring crusade against her neighbors’ resistance to the ban – not to mention strong opposition from local merchants and the bottled water industry – Kaczor depicts the daily grind, the passion and the legislative hurdles of grassroots activism. Co-sponsored by Bucknell’s Center for Sustainability and the Environment. April 21
THE GRADUATE - Directed by Mike Nichols (U.S. 1967) 105 min. DCP. With Dustin Hoffman, Anne Bancroft, Katherine Ross. “The funniest American comedy of the year... Hoffman is so painfully awkward and ethical that we are forced to admit we would act pretty much as he does, even in his most extreme moments. Bancroft, in a tricky role, is magnificently sexy, shrewish, and self-possessed enough to make the seduction convincing... Benjamin’s acute honesty and embarrassment are so accurately drawn that we hardly know whether to laugh or to look inside ourselves.” – Roger Ebert. Benjamin Braddock (Hoffman) graduates from college, moves back home and searches for direction, bouncing between an affair with the wife of his father’s partner ("Mrs. Robinson, you’re trying to seduce me…aren’t you?") and her daughter, the woman of his dreams. The Graduate's tale of restlessness and ennui, and its legendary Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack, was a generational milestone, and it remains a classic of the American screen – recommended viewing before commencement, Class of 2015! FREE FOR BUCKNELL STUDENTS! April 28
BUCKNELL FILM/MEDIA STUDIES SCREENINGS & FILM SERIES DOCUMENTARY & AVANT-GARDE FILM - FRIDAYS AT 2:00 PM - FREE/OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM: TAKE ONE - 35MM - William Greaves (U.S. 1968) 75 min. With William Greaves, Patricia Ree Gilbert, Don Fellows, Jonathan Gordon. In his one-of-a-kind fiction/documentary hybrid, director William Greaves presides over a beleaguered film crew in New York’s Central Park, leaving them to try to figure out what kind of movie they’re making. The project defies easy description. A couple enacts a break-up scenario over and over, while four cameras film simultaneously: one camera focus solely on the actors; another films the crew shooting the scene; a third includes the actors, the crew, onlookers and anything interesting that’s happening in the park; a fourth is sometimes wielded by Greaves himself. It’s a wildly innovative sixties counterculture landmark that remains one of the most insightful movies made about making movies. Playing with Soft Fiction (Chick Strand, U.S. 1979 16mm, 54 min.), a provocative and sensuous exploration of female sexuality. April 17
F FOR FAKE - 35MM - Orson Welles (U.S. 1975) 88 min. With Orson Welles, Oja Kodar. Welles’ free-form, sort-of documentary is the legendary filmmaker – and self-described charlatan’s inspired prank, a gleeful engagement with the central preoccupation of his career: the tenuous lines between illusion and truth, art and lies. Beginning with portraits of the world-renowned art forger Elmyr de Hory and his equally devious biographer, Clifford Irving, Welles embarks on a dizzying journey that simultaneously exposes and revels in fakery and fakers of all stripes—not the least of whom is Welles himself. Playing with Chartres Series (Stan Brakhage, U.S. 1994, 16mm, 9 min.) April 24
