If you haven’t picked up your All-Access Pass yet, this is the week to do so! Good for over 150 films throughout the year for only $25 to $40!
We’re back screening films starting this Wednesday with a recent, exciting discovery: a nearly-lost film from 1984 starring Brooke Adams (Days of Heaven), screening on a brand-new 35mm film print! Vengeance is Mine stars Adams as a woman returning to the Massachusetts home of her adoptive mother to close some old wounds, but instead finds the messy world of her neighbors so compelling, she is instantly entangled in their drama. This masterful film never saw a theatrical release and only aired once on PBS’ “American Playhouse” under the working title Haunted. We’re positively thrilled to bring you this instant classic, straight from its successful run at the Film Forum in New York City!
We’re also showing the latest film from Michalangelo Frammartino (Le Quattro Volte) this weekend—Il Buco. A work of nearly-wordless beauty, Il Buco sends the members of the Piedmont Speleological Group down to explore Europe’s deepest cave, while life in the Calabrian hinterlands above goes by without regard. Winner of a Special Jury Prize at the 2021 Venice Film Festival, the film is a "quiet, intense, almost overwhelmingly beautiful meditation on life, death, human curiosity and the unfathomable power of nature.” (NY Times)
Also screening: the Sundance Film Festival Shorts Tour 2022 (with an excellent animated short about the lengths taken to complete Jim Jarmusch’s Stranger Than Paradise!) and a little movie you might have heard about, called Everything Everywhere All at Once. Behold the everything bagel!
