Sept. 2016 Events
Sept. 2 ~ "Good Morning"
by Yasujirô Ozu (Japan 1959)
A hilarious re-working of Ozu's silent film, this is the story of two young boys in suburban Tokyo who take a vow of sllence after their parents refuse to buy them a television set. An enchantingly satirical portrait of family life, romance, gossip, and the consumerism of modern Japan.
Sept. 9 ~ "Ciao, Professore!"
by Lina Wertmüller (Italy 1992)
An upper-class teacher finds himself teaching 3rd-grade truants at a ramshackle school. Yet he learns some valuable lessons from the scrappy students. A rambunctious comedy brimming with life!
Sept. 16 ~ "Where the Green Ants Dream"
by Werner Herzog (West Germany/Australia 1984)
A desolate stretch of earth somewhere in the heart of Australia. A group of tribal Aborigines struggles to defend a 40,000 year old sacred site, the place where the Green Ants dream, against the bulldozers of a mining company. it is quickly apparent that tribal laws and customs and beliefs are very different than Western laws — and how the issue will be resolved is sticky indeed.
Sept. 23 ~ "Stolen Kisses"
by François Truffaut (France 1968)
The 3rd installment in Truffaut’s chronicle of the mischievous and perpetually love-struck Antoine Doinel. Antoine has been dishonorably discharged from the army and released onto the streets of Paris, where he stumbles into the unlikely profession of private detective and embarks on a series of misadventures.
Sept. 30 ~ "IF"
by Lindsay Anderson (UK 1968)
Lindsay Anderson’s If…. is a daringly anarchic vision of British society, set in a boarding school in late-sixties England. Before Kubrick made his mischief iconic in A Clockwork Orange, Malcolm McDowell made a hell of an impression as the insouciant Mick Travis, who, along with his school chums, trumps authority at every turn, finally emerging as a violent savior in the vicious games of one-upmanship played by both students and masters. Mixing color and black and white as audaciously as it mixes fantasy and reality, If…. remains one of cinema’s most unforgettable rebel yells.

At The Courtyard Gallery and Agency, we know that good design is more than just pretty pictures. In order for design to be successful to your company, it must be smart, eye-catching, and relevant. It is the ideas that move the design, which in turn moves your product or service.
We are a full service design studio focusing on print design, logo creation, web design and development, and more. Check out all that the Courtyard offers under the services tab above.
Of course not everything we do is commercial. We are also supportive of the arts. Get directions and stop by the Gallery while in Asheville to check out some of the best work from artists across the country.
