FACE TO FACE
ANSIKTE MOT ANSIKTE
1976, Paramount, 136 min, Sweden/USA, Dir: Ingmar Bergman

After a prolonged stint in television, Bergman returned to the big screen with a decidedly dark film even by his standards, fusing such familiar themes as the troubles of marriage, mental illness and death. This intense drama tells the story of two psychiatrists (Liv Ullmann and Erland Josephson) bound by the institution of marriage and nothing more, as Ullmann’s tormented psyche gradually envelopes the film’s material reality to reveal a desperately lonely inner world. Featuring what Roger Ebert called “one of the greatest performances in an Ingmar Bergman film,” FACE TO FACE takes the legendary collaboration with Ullmann to bold new heights.


A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN
2004, 100 min, USA/Mexico/Spain, Dir: Sergio Arau

How do you make the invisible visible? You take it away. Misunderstandings and humorous situations abound in this comedic satire when California wakes up one morning to discover that a third of its population has vanished - the sole characteristic linking the 14 million disappeared being their Hispanic background. As the state begins to deteriorate, the crisis is reflected in the lives of a teacher (Maureen Flannigan), a senator (John Getz), a ranch owner (Muse Watson) and a reporter (Yareli Arizmendi).


HUNDRA
