"Joker" centers around the iconic arch nemesis and is an original, standalone fictional story not seen before on the big screen. Phillips' exploration of Arthur Fleck, who is indelibly portrayed by Joaquin Phoenix, is of a man struggling to find his way in Gotham's fracturedsociety. A clown-for-hire by day, he aspires to be a stand-up comic at night...but finds the joke always seems to be on him. Caught in a cyclical existence between apathy and cruelty, Arthur makes one bad decision that brings about a chain reaction of escalating events in this gritty character study.

Roberto Rossellini (Germany, Italy 1848) 78 min. DCP. With Edmund Meschke, Franz Gruger, Ingetraude Hinze. German with English subtitles.
The concluding chapter of Rossellini’s “War Trilogy” is the most devastating, a portrait of an obliterated Berlin seen through the eyes of a twelve-year-old boy. Young Edmund—mostly left to wander unsupervised— is ensnared in the black-market schemes of a group of teenagers and comes under the nefarious influence of a Nazi-sympathizing ex-teacher.

HIDDEN FIGURES is the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe)-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Ulrich Seidl (Austria 2003) 87 min. 35MM. German with English subtitles.
Controversial Austrian filmmaker Ulrich Seidl’s bold and uncomfortably intimate journey into faith and humanity is an “unblinking exploration of one of the most private of human experiences” (The New York Times). Recording six Catholics—of different ages, backgrounds and genders—in a series of confessional dialogues with Jesus (and an omnipresent movie camera), Jesus, You Know is a “deeply moving documentary of Catholics at prayer” (The Village Voice).
Eugene Richards (U.S. 2018) 42 min. DCP.
Thy Kingdom Come was conceived following the filming of Terrence Malick’s To the Wonder. As part of that production’s “third unit,” photographer/filmmaker Eugene Richards introduced actor/producer Javier Bardem, who was portraying a parish priest in Malick’s film, to the real-life residents of a small Oklahoma town. What had been intended as brief episodes for the feature film grew in scope as the townspeople, wholly aware that he was a fictional priest, chose to share personal details of their lives. Co-presented by Bucknell’s Department of Religious Studies. Introduced by Professor of Religious Studies John Penniman.
1:00 PM - Admission is FREE & open to the public!
Yvonne Rainer (U.S. 1985) 125 min. 16MM. With Jackie Raynal, Anne Friedberg, Larry Loonin.
Dancer, choreographer and founding member of the avant-garde Judson Dance Theater, Yvonne Rainer is also a filmmaker. Among her several remarkable features is this wry chronicle of the aftermath of a breakup between a philandering professor, and his artist wife, voiced by choreographer Trisha Brown. Yet the work’s concerns radiate far beyond the couple, expanding to include film history and on-the-ground politics alike—punctuating the piece are a variety of cinematic quotations, from Hollis Frampton to Barbara Stanwyck, as well as documentary footage of spirited exchanges about American imperialism in Latin America and the housing crisis in New York. Explored throughout, Rainer wrote, “are the contrasts and outright contradictions that pervade many areas of [a] man’s life,” like his theoretical commitment to feminism relative to the fact of his womanizing (adapted from Film at Lincoln Center program notes).
