The Mirror

1975. Russia. Dir: Andrei Tarkovsky. With Margarita Terekhova. 108 min. 35mm print



Shakespeare said an artist’s role was to hold a mirror up to nature; in this semi-autobiographical work, Tarkovsky does just that, though his looking-glass is a fractured and opaque as human experience itself. The movie weaves a series of haunting, half-remembered dreams as a dying man reflects on his broken past.

Film Series: Le Havre

2011. France/Finland. Dir: Aki Kaurismäki. With André Wilms. 93 min. 35mm print



In this urban fairytale, a failed author takes under his wing a young illegal immigrant from Africa. With European xenophobia at its peak, Kaurismäki – a kind of droll Finnish precursor to Wes Anderson – applies a deadpan humor and pictorial compositions to inject a dose of optimism into a dilapidated world of lovable outcasts and deadbeats.
