Belgian cinema is right in the front of the international filmmaking arena, boasting richly diverse films that consistently garner critical praise, worldwide interest and many international awards. From the unsettling but still urgently relevant MAN BITES DOG to the quirky and vibrant TOTO LE HERO, the monumental saga DAENS, the thriller DOSSIER K and THE KID WITH A BIKE by Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne and the Oscar-nominated BULLHEAD, EVERYBODY FAMOUS, A CAT IN PARIS and DEATH OF A SHADOW, the Belgian film industry has proven its dexterity in tone and its originality in aesthetic.

The Cinematheque again caps off the year with some of the funniest and most sophisticated films ever to hit the big screen, including Ernst Lubitsch's TROUBLE IN PARADISE, Clark Gable in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and THE BACHELOR AND THE BOBBY-SOXER, W.C. Fields in IT’S A GIFT, and our annual New Years Day Marx. Bros program!

With his cheerful pluck in the face of adversity, “the Little Tramp” became one of cinema’s most indelible characters - and his creator, Charlie Chaplin, one of film’s biggest stars. Though the Tramp was birthed in the silent era (his first appearance was in a 1914 Keystone short), he continues to light up screens nearly a century later, bringing pratfalls and pathos to new audiences each year.

Focusing on French animation, the American Cinematheque proudly presents three new films in this grand tradition of distinctively drawn visuals paired with unusual stories. In ZARAFA, a boy bonds with his giraffe buddy on adventures which bring them to Alexandria, Marseilles, the Alps and beyond. Set in Mediterranean Africa, THE RABBI’S CAT gives its owner an earful about life, love and religion when it miraculously begins to talk. THE PAINTING illustrates the cost of discrimination while at the same time offering a playful take on the artistic process. The program also includes the short films “Dripped” and “Tram.”
