Declaration of INDIE-pendents: Exploring the World of Indie Films

October 9 @ 1:30 pm

October 9  through  November 6, 2018, 1:30 pm Independent films are a different breed altogether. Produced and developed away from the influence of the major film studios, they can be more intimate than the blockbuster films we are used to, and also very rewarding for the discerning cinephile. Indie filmmakers are known for putting their own unique personal stamps on their work, creating real art in the process.   Indies are not without their challenges, due to smaller, more “compact” budgets. …

Made in Germany Film: Wings of Desire

October 18 @ 4:30 pm

(1987)  PG-13   128 minutes A truly mystical and poetic vision of Berlin as it stood before the wall tumbled.  A metaphor for many things, including the angels among us, this film shows that while a wall can separate us from warring ideologies of the times, there may still be hope for the lost souls created by living in a world thus divided.  A stunning piece of art in itself, this film stands alone as an exemplary achievement for its famed director, Wim…

Made in Germany film: People on Sunday

November 8 @ 4:30 pm

(1930)  Not Rated  73 minutes A now legendary film of immense historical significance, this silent gem, produced in 1929 and released in 1930, was considered very daring for its time because it broke all the rules of traditional film making.  None of the cast were professional actors, but the young screenwriters and cinematographers went on to become world famous, each and every one.  Lovingly restored with a beautiful orchestral soundtrack and stunning black-and-white images of Weimar Berlin. Art & Film…

Made in Germany film: Barbara

December 6 @ 4:30 pm

(2012)  PG-13   105 minutes An evocative portrayal of love and charity, found where least expected, within the confines of a “surveillance state” that was the divided Germany of the 1980s.  Subtle and restrained, yet confident in its exploration of the secrets and lies of living behind the Iron Curtain.  Directed by Christian Petzold and starring one of Germany’s shining stars, Nina Hoss.  Art & Film on select Thursdays during the fall in the Leonhardt Auditorium All shows start at 4:30pm. FREE with paid…

Ciao! Italia: Films Celebrating the Spirit of Italy

January 8, 2019 @ 1:30 pm

January 8 through February 5, 2019, 1:30 pm Over the years, we have periodically looked at some films from Italy, mostly covering the earlier, more formative years in the history of that nation’s cinema.  This time around we’ll focus more on recent contributions, as Italy begins to break away from its roots in dark Neo Realism.  With a nod to one early comic classic, “Mafioso” introduces us to the world of Mafia, acknowledging for the first time in Italian film…

March 19, 2019 @ 1:30 pm

March 19 through April 16, 2019, 1:30 pm Do you think of the Victorian era as conservative, dark, unemotional, straight laced?  Come join us as we put to rest those old-fashioned notions and explore another side of life in Queen Victoria’s day. Even Victoria had her wild side.  Apart from setting a fashion statement for her times, by dressing all in black, there were others in her realm--- novelists, playwrights, poets, politicians--- who influenced Victoria’s World.  They were significant enough…
