T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets​

March 7
Beyond the Visible: Hilma af Klint (Dir. Halina Dyrschka, 2019)
Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her. This dazzling, course correcting documentary describes not only the life and craft of af Klint, but also the process of her mischaracterization and erasure by both a patriarchal narrative of artistic progress and capitalistic determination of artistic value.

Flaming Ears
(Dirs. A. Hans Scheirl, Dietmar Schipek, Ursula Puerrer, 1992)
Super-8 DIY flmmaking at its most audacious, Flaming Ears is a pop sci-fi lesbian extravaganza set in the year 2700 in the fictional burned-out city of Asche. This story of obsession and revenge is also an anti-romantic plea for love in all its many forms.

T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets
(Dir. Sophie Fiennes, 2023)
Ralph Fiennes’s exquisite performance of T. S. Eliot’s poetic masterpiece is dynamically translated from stage to screen by director Sophie Fiennes (Grace Jones: Bloodlight and Bami, The Pervert’s Guide to Ideology).

Fiddler's Journey to the Big Screen
(Dir. Daniel Raim, 2022)

Suzy Amis, Ian McKellen, Bo Hopkins, Heather Graham, and Carrie Snodgress star in this modern twist on the classic Western.

March 28
Eden and After
(Dir. Alain Robbe-Grillet, 1970)
From the darkly erotic imagination of Alain Robbe-Grillet comes this a dreamlike fable in which a group of decadent French students are drawn into the psychological and sexual games of a mysterious Dutchman (Pierre Zimmer). Once they imbibe his "fear powder," the students experience a series of hallucinatory episodes: reminations on death, explorations of sexual curiosity, and striking tableaux of sadomasochistic fantasy.

Hold Me Tight
(Dir. Mathieu Amalric, 2022)
