CCAP

Directed by: Daniel Geller, Dayna Goldfine
Leonard Cohen, A Journey, A Song is a definitive exploration of singersongwriter Leonard Cohen as seen through the prism of his internationally renowned hymn, “Hallelujah.” This feature-length documentary weaves together three creative strands: The songwriter and his times; the song’s dramatic journey from record label reject to chart-topping hit; and moving testimonies from major recording artists for whom “Hallelujah” has become a personal touchstone. Approved for production by Leonard Cohen just before his 80th birthday in 2014, the film accesses a wealth of never-before-seen archival materials from the Cohen Trust including Cohen’s personal notebooks, journals and photographs, performance footage, and extremely rare audio recordings and interviews.

Made in Hong Kong

109 minutes, Hong Kong, In Cantonese, Drama
Rated NR: _


Final film in the Made in Hong Kong series, curated by Sean Gilman:

Made in Hong Kong, the film (Fruit Chan, 1997)

“Shot on a shoestring budget with non-professional actors, Fruit Chan’s acclaimed breakthrough was one of the first great post-Handover films. Recapturing the spirit of the Hong Kong New Wave, Chan follows a trio of teenaged misfits as they try to navigate a world of crime, poverty, abuse, and inadequate health care, haunted as much by the ghost of a mysterious girl as they are the lost ideals of Hong Kong and its cinema. Made in Hong Kong set a new model for independent production in Hong Kong, filmmaking outside the constraints of the old studios or Mainland censors.” ~Sean Gilman

Don’t Look Now (1973)

Don’t Look Now (1973)

Playing at Pickford Film Center
110 minutes, UK, In English, Horror
Rated R: Violence, sexual situations, language


Nicolas Roeg’s 1973 film is a fascinating rumination on a couple grappling with the grief of loss, encapsulated into one of the most mystifying and beautiful horror movies of all time. Shot and set in Venice, the city’s labyrinthian design serves as a backdrop for Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie’s attempts at navigating their fracturing relationship. Masterfully crafted by British director Nicolas Roeg at the height of his sensibilities, the cinematography and editing remains unparalleled to this day and makes this film the zeitgeist of ‘70s psychological horror. The notoriety garnered from its controversial-for-the-time sex scene and indescribable ending have cemented it as a North Star of cult and arthouse cinemas for decades to come.

Starship Troopers (1997)

Starship Troopers (1997)

Playing at Pickford Film Center
129 minutes, USA, In English, Science Fiction
Rated R: Graphic sci-fi violence and gore, some language and nudity


Shock and Awe: Films of the Dubya Years, a 2-film series: curated/introduced by Brandon Wilson & co-presented w/ American Cinematheque

“It is easy to think you’re smarter than Paul Verhoeven’s Starship Troopers but that’s a mistake. Even though it was released in the Clinton Era, no film more accurately foretold the Dubya Era & its cycle of terrorism giving way to military adventurism like Verhoeven’s adaptation of the Heinlein novel. Verhoeven drew on memories of growing up in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands to tell a story which he sums up as “war makes fascists of us all.” We follow a group of teenagers from their utopian high school days & watch them become hardened warriors for their totalitarian state after a devastating attack from an insectoid alien race. Mixing satire, dazzling special effects & Verhoeven’s impressive staging of combat, the film blurs the line between rousing American action films & fascist propaganda in a way we now understand all too clearly.” ~Brandon Wilson

Rated NR: _


Shock and Awe: Films of the Dubya Years: a 2-film series curated by Brandon Wilson, co-presented w/ American Cinematheque

Livestream Q&A w/ director John Cameron Mitchell

“5 years after turning his rock musical into a film, Mitchell released the film that in his words was “everything we needed to get through a 2nd term of George W. Bush.” Developed through workshops for years, Shortbus is the kind of film directors dare themselves to make but either lose their nerve or compromise into oblivion. The title refers to an underground salon in NYC that features art, song, & pansexual orgies. Like one of Altman’s ensembles, the characters are a disparate group of New Yorkers who find themselves drawn to the space. The sex scenes are unsimulated which at the time got a lot of attention. But unlike other films that seek to break the taboo of unsimulated sex, Shortbus didn’t use sex to shock or titillate. The scenes of intimacy instead contribute to a bracing honesty.” ~Brandon Wilson

Johnny Guitar (1954)

Playing at Pickford Film Center
110 minutes, USA, In English, Western
Rated NR: _


Directed by: Nicholas Ray
Perhaps no American filmmaker was more sympathetic with the plight of the outsider than Nicholas Ray, and perhaps his most compelling rebel-without-a-cause is Joan Crawford’s Vienna in Johnny Guitar, who is forced to wage war with a puritanical posse intent on stealing everything from her. One of the strangest westerns ever made, the film pulses with delicious subtext and a strikingly vibrant “TruColor” pallete. Championed by the filmmakers and critics of the French New Wave, Johnny Guitar has transcended its B-movie roots to become a uniquely fascinating cult triumph.
