Courtyard Gallery April 2017 World Cinema Screenings (every Friday at 8pm)
April 7 "Notre Musique" by Jean-Luc Godard (France/Switzerland 2004; 80 min)
Provocative questions about art, politics, and the nexus point between them are presented in this drama in three acts, "Hell," "Purgatory," and "Paradise." After a collage-style meditation on the nature of war and conflict in society, Godard introduces his central set piece, in which a group of authors, artists, and noted thinkers gather for a symposium taking place in the battle-scarred city of Sarajevo.
April 14 "Rashomon" by Akira Kurosawa (Japan, 1950; 88 min)
In this riveting psychological thriller that investigates the nature of truth and the meaning of justice, four people give different accounts of a murder and a rape, presented by Kurosawa with striking imagery and ingenious flashbacks. This eloquent masterwork and international sensation revolutionized film language and introduced Japanese cinema—and a commanding new star by the name of Toshiro Mifune—to the Western world.
April 21 "Ararat" by Atom Egoyan (Canada/France 2002; 126 min) A film to honor the Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day, April 24thAbout a family and film crew in Toronto working on a film based loosely on the 1915 defense of Van during the Armenian Genocide. In addition to exploring the human impact of that specific historical event, Ararat examines the nature of truth and its representation through art. The Genocide is disputed by the Government of Turkey, an issue that partially inspired and is explored in the film.
April 28 "The Passion of Anna" by Ingmar Bergman (Sweden 1970; 101 min)
Andreas, a man struggling with the recent demise of his marriage and his own emotional isolation, befriends a married couple also in the midst of psychological turmoil. In turn he meets Anna, who is grieving the recent deaths of her husband and son. Andreas and Anna pursue a love affair. She appears zealous in her faith and steadfast in her search for truth, but gradually her delusions surface.
