    Amidst a worldwide pandemic that causes sudden amnesia, middle-aged Aris (Aris Servetalis) finds himself enrolled in a recovery program designed to help unclaimed patients build new identities. Prescribed daily tasks on cassette tapes so he can create new memories and document them on camera, Aris slides back into ordinary life, meeting Anna (Sofia Georgovasili), a woman who is also in recovery. Through images deadpan, strange and surreal, Greek writer-director Christos Nikou posits a beguiling reflection on memory, identity, and loss, exploring how a society might handle an irreversible epidemic through one man's story of self-discovery. Are we the sum of the images we compile and display of ourselves, or are we something richer, and deeper? APPLES is a deadpan tragicomedy that mixes the playful and the poignant.

    New 4K restoration from Janus Films!

    "We've met before, haven't we?"

    Most of Lynch’s later films straddle (at least) two realities, and their most ominous moments arise from a dawning awareness that one world is about to yield to another. In LOST HIGHWAY we are introduced to brooding jazz saxophonist Fred Madison (Bill Pullman) while he lives in a simmering state of jealousy with his listless and possibly unfaithful wife Renee (Patricia Arquette) until the world itself becomes a nightmare embodiment of a consciousness out of control. LOST HIGHWAY marked a return from the wilderness for Lynch, and the arrival of his more radical expressionism and the tactile sensation that everything is really happening with the infinite delusions of schizophrenic thought.

    FRI JULY 8 and SAT JULY 9 --- 9:15pm

    SUN JULY 10 --- 7pm

BOTH SIDES OF THE BLADE

Claire Denis

  • 116 minutes
  • French with English subtitles
  • Starts Friday July 15

    Reviews

    From masterful writer-director Claire Denis (Let The Sunshine In, High Life) starring the always superb Juliette Binoche as Sara, a radio host of a politically conscientious show who seems, as the movie begins, to have it all until her life spirals out of control when she becomes involved in a passionate love triangle. What starts like a psychological drama becomes an intimate, incendiary portrait of three people, achieving the suspense of an accomplished erotic thriller and a level of alertness and nuance that pays off in a Bergmanesque emotional showdown.

FIRE OF LOVE

    Reviews

    The story of two French lovers, Katia and Maurice Krafft, who died in a volcanic explosion doing the very thing that brought them together: unraveling the mysteries of our planet, while simultaneously capturing the most explosive volcano imagery ever recorded. Along the way, they changed our understanding of the natural world, and saved tens of thousands of lives. Previously unseen hours of pristine 16-millimeter film and thousands of photographs reveal the birth of modern volcanology through an unlikely lens; the love of its two pioneers. A love poem to these brave scientists as well as the natural wonders of the world we need to protect.
