Writer-director Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird) has crafted a Little Women that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott, and unfolds as the author's alter ego, Jo March, reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig's take, the beloved story of the March sisters - four young women each determined to live life on her own terms -- is both timeless and timely. Portraying Jo, Meg, Amy, and Beth March, the film stars Saoirse Ronan, Emma Watson, Florence Pugh, Eliza Scanlen, with Timothée Chalamet as their neighbor Laurie, Laura Dern as Marmee, and Meryl Streep as Aunt March.

Bucknell Unversity Film Series: Kung-Fu Master!

Tuesday, 2/25

7:00 PM 

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

 

Agnès Varda (France 1987) 81 min. With Charlotte Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Mathieu Demy. French with English subtitles.

A truly bold, transgressive, lovely and singular film, Kung-Fu Master! is the tale of a lonely forty-year-old woman who falls in love with the classmate of her teenage daughter. Varda, one of cinema’s towering visionaries, died last year, leaving us with a vast oeuvre of personal, whimsical and fearless films. Here, she proffers pure, maternal love (innocent and consuming) crossed with the intimacy of physical desire – a provocation whose backdrop is the ongoing AIDS crisis. A director who said she preferred daydreams to psychology, Varda cast this memorable fantasy with her own and her lead actress’ family: Jane Birkin (a national figure in France, celebrated for her work as an actress as well as her liaison with singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg) stars, appearing with her two reallife daughters (Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, her child with filmmaker Jacques Doillon); the young man is played by Mathieu Demy, Varda’s son with the director Jacques Demy.

A ruthless, down-on-his-luck reporter (Douglas), relegated to a dead-end job at a small-town paper, finds himself at the center of a sensational story and manipulates the people involved to prolong his moment in the sun (Brattle Theater program notes). Playing with Death Mills (1945), Wilder’s compilation of documentary footage filmed after the liberation of the Bergen-Belsen extermination camp.

Bucknell Unversity Film Series: Los Olvidados

Wednesday, 2/27

7:00 PM 

Admission is FREE & open to the public!

Luis Buñuel (Mexico 1950) 80 min. DCP. With Alfonso Mejía, Roberto Cobo, Estela Inda. Spanish with English subtitles.

 

“An iconoclast, moralist, and revolutionary who was a leader of avant-garde surrealism in his youth ” (New York Times), Luis Buñuel burst back onto the international scene with this stunningly raw portrait of disaffected Mexican youths running wild. This early masterpiece follows a gang of boys, led by a sadistic ringleader, who prey on the weak and helpless, and marries Buñuel’s trademark surrealism—most famously in a haunting, slow-motion dream sequence—with hard-edged social realism, all building up to the heart-stopping final shot (BAMcinématek program notes).
