ONCE UPON A TIME … ON HOLLYWOOD BLVD

In celebration of Quentin Tarantino’s epic fantasy ONCE UPON A TIME…IN HOLLYWOOD, the American Cinematheque is proud to present a brief history of films sharing the classic heading from around the world. The series kicks off south of the border with ONCE UPON A TIME IN MEXICO, the final installment of Robert Rodriguez’s wildly successful “El Mariachi” trilogy, and then travels across the globe to Turkey, with Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s slow-burn mystery ONCE UPON A TIME IN ANATOLIA.

Next stop is China, featuring Tsui Hark’s Hong-Kong martial arts epics ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA and ONCE UPON A TIME IN CHINA II (both starring international action star Jet Li), followed by a trip to the Classic Hollywood Era with ONCE UPON A TIME, starring Carey Grant and a dancing caterpillar!

Such a series could not be complete without the Italian maestro himself, Sergio Leone, and we are thrilled to present two of his most celebrated epics: ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA. The series also includes two films that emphasize the fantastical implications of the phrase: Jacques Demy’s musical fairytale DONKEY SKIN (originally known as ONCE UPON A TIME in the U.S.) and Lucasfilm’s animated gem TWICE UPON A TIME.

Series compiled by Chris LeMaire and Grant Moninger. Program notes by Ben Simington and Chris LeMaire.
