JOE DANTE’S 16MM SPOTLIGHT

The American Cinematheque is proud to present a special showcase of rare and obscure 16mm films from the personal archive of Joe Dante and Jon Davison. Dante teamed up with Davison, producer and fellow film collector, decades ago to amass a collection of hundreds of films, many of which are now available only on 16mm and are preserved at the Academy Film Archive. Our series offers a rare peek into this eclectic vault, featuring films that rarely see the light of day.

Dante has personally curated this month’s selection to spotlight films from around the world that, although largely forgotten, are true standouts in their respective genres. The series kicks off with Mexican filmmaker Servando González’s THE FOOL KILLER, a bizarre Western starring Anthony Perkins as an ax-murdering philosopher roaming the Southern countryside with a 12-year-old runaway companion. French producer-turned-director Raoul Lévy offers an equally serious meditation on violence with HAIL, MAFIA!, a road movie about two hitmen pursuing an unwitting target (Eddie Constantine) through the South of France.

THREE CASES OF MURDER, a British horror anthology that blends tales of murder with the supernatural, features Orson Welles in an unforgettable role. The series closes with Frank and Eleanor Perry’s paranoia-laced LADYBUG LADYBUG, which follows a group of elementary school students who face an imminent nuclear attack. Each program will begin with a cartoon personally chosen by Dante.

Series programmed by Joe Dante and Chris LeMaire. Program notes by Chris LeMaire.

*Please note that due to our efforts to ensure that these archival prints are handled with the utmost care, we will be taking short breaks between each reel.
