We’re back! The second film series of the semester starts off this week, fresh off fall break, with the Dardenne brother’s The Kid With A Bike (part of the exciting Tournées Festival) on Wednesday and Pacific Rim on Friday. Next week, the series will dive into Halloween with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and some exciting films to come include Cinderella and The Big Lebowski. There will also be a series of films by alumni directors, two of which will be hosting Q&As about their new films.
Furthermore, through the Tournées Festival, our contemporary Francophone series returns with a focus on families, as top international auteurs consider many moving variations: the grounding reassurance of close loved ones; the hopeful, makeshift gravitation of needy and wounded souls; the confounding uncertainty and circumstantial severance that can arise over time. The Tournées Festival was made possible with the support of the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the US and the Centre National de la Cinématographie et de l’Image Animée.
For those of you still unaware, films are screened 4 nights a week in the Center for Film Studies, for $5 (payable with your student account) on Wednesdays and Fridays and for free on Thursdays and Saturdays. 35mm prints are screened for all films.
