UNE FEMME DOUCE d. Robert Bresson, 1969 + Talk by Jon Davies at Watermans (16 NOV 13:00):

The story then proceeds in flashback as her husband (Frangin), an introspective pawnbroker, struggles to understand how their marriage came to such a desperate, forlorn conclusion. The film is grounded in an everyday world that is, at times, remarkably sensual. Much of that sensuality stems from the extraordinary debut performance of the beautiful Sanda, the only Bresson performer to become an international star.”

HOUSE OF CHILDREN d. Daniel Drema, 2019 + Q&A at The Castle Cinema (20 NOV 18:30):

  • “A glimpse of life as seen through children at a Zimbabwean care initiative. We see almost nothing of the children’s surroundings, forcing us to imagine a world entirely from their point of view.

Focusing on works from the 20th century, Part I includes films by Barbara Hammer, Marina Grizinic & Amid Smid, Jerry Tartaglia, and J. S. Watson & Melville Webber.

  • Ciné-Real 16mm Film Club presents: “Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) has just finished college and, back at his parents’ house, he’s trying to avoid the one question everyone keeps asking: What does he want to do with his life? An unexpected diversion crops up when he is seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), a bored housewife and friend of his parents. But what begins as a fun tryst turns complicated when Benjamin falls for the one woman Mrs. Robinson demanded he stay away from, her daughter, Elaine (Katharine Ross).”

ONLY YOU d. Harry Wootliff, 2018 + Q&A with the director & actor Josh O’Connor at Curzon Bloomsbury (21 NOV 18:15):

  • “Opening on New Years Eve, when two strangers share a cab, and developing into a distinctly modern romance, this is a story for our age that is both sexy and honest. There’s no denying the chemistry between the two leads as they go from a one night stand to moving in together and planning to start a family. But even the best-laid plans tend to go awry.”

VERTIGO d. Alfred Hitchcock, 1958 + Intro/Discussion with Gareth Jones at The Cinema Museum (21 NOV 19:00):

  • Film School presents: “Explore issues of authorship in a film many consider to be the greatest in cinema history. But who (or what) is the film’s true author? Hitchcock as the director has a strong claim of course, but what about the influence of the classical Hollywood system itself? I will outline some of the key debates in authorship theory before the screening, then afterwards (in the museum bar of course), we’ll discuss them in relation to the film. Look forward to seeing you all there!”
