Bucknell Unversity Film Series: Filibus: The Mysterious Air Pirate

Monday, 3/16

7:00 PM

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Mario Roncoroni (1915 Italy) 71 min. DCP. With Valeria Creti, Cristina Ruspoli, Giovanni Spano.

“No other crime thriller compares to Filibus!” exclaimed an ad in the April 1915 edition of the Italian film magazine La Vita Cinematografica. Directed by Mario Roncoroni and scripted by future science fiction author Giovanni Bertinetti, Filibus is indeed the most exciting, witty, feminist, steampunk, cross-dressing aviatrix thriller you will ever see. Previously available in a badly subtitled, imperfect version, Filibus was recently remastered by the Eye Filmmuseum, restoring its marvelous range of tinting and toning in the original nitrate material. To bring the film back to its flavor of the period — when characters like Fantomas were worldwide sensations — Milestone hired young poet Austin Renna to write new intertitles based on an improved translation. Playing with illusionist and filmmaker Georges Méliès iconic A Trip to the Moon (France 1902, 15 min. 35MM), along with shorts by the Lumière brothers, the storied cinema inventors

Bucknell Unversity Film Series: Alphaville

Tuesday, 3/17

7:00 PM

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Jean Luc-Godard (France 1965) 99 min. DCP. With Eddie Constantine, Anna Karina, Akim Tamiroff, László Szabó. French with English subtitles.

A French New Wave icon, and the muse of Jean-Luc Godard (also his wife for a time), Anna Karina died this past winter, leaving evidence of a prosperous acting career in European cinema (working with directors including Luchino Visconti, Tony Richardson and Jacques Rivette). Alphaville may be one of Godard’s more peculiar and mysterious movies, a fusion of dystopian science-fiction, pulp characters and surrealist poetry. Eddie Constantine stars as intergalactic hero Lemmy Caution, on a mission to kill the inventor of fascist computer Alpha 60 – and teach the scientist’s beautiful daughter (Karina) the meaning of the word “love”.

Bucknell Unversity Film Series: Love In The Afternoon

Wednesday, 3/18

2:00 PM

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Billy Wilder (U.S. 1957) 130 min. 35MM. With Audrey Hepburn, Gary Cooper.

The first collaboration between Billy Wilder and I.A.L. Diamond plays like a spiritual sequel to the pre-Code romantic comedies of Wilder’s mentor, Ernst Lubitsch. Maurice Chevalier returns to the American screen after a decade-long absence to play bedroom detective Claude Chavasse. When Chavasse’s daughter Ariane (Hepburn) intervenes to save an American playboy (Cooper) from the bullets of a cuckold’s gun, a grand romance is born. The age difference between Hepburn and Cooper is considerable, but the scenario never tips over into squick territory because the masterful screenplay continually emphasizes Ariane’s agency and wit, as well as her “certain quelque chose, as they say on the Left Bank” (Chicago Film Society Notes).
