ANTIWAR CINEMA
Double Feature!
PATHS OF GLORY / THE ASCENT

We pay tribute to Kirk Douglas with one of his greatest films.

35 mm!

PATHS OF GLORY
1957, Park Circus/MGM, 86 min, Dir: Stanley Kubrick

One of the most biting, potent and eloquent anti-war films ever made. During WWI, French officer Kirk Douglas finds himself in a maze of Catch-22 contradictions when he decides to defend three of his men against charges of cowardice from insane general George Macready. Masterfully shot in black-and-white and featuring stellar performances by Adolphe Menjou, Ralph Meeker and Joe Turkel. Timothy Carey’s dark and sympathetic portrayal of Private Maurice Ferol steals the show.


L.A. Premiere of New DCP!

THE ASCENT
VOSKHOZHDENIE
1977, Janus Films, 111 min, Soviet Union, Dir: Larisa Shepitko

Larisa Shepitko’s emotionally overwhelming final film won the Golden Bear at the 1977 Berlin Film Festival and has been hailed around the world as the finest Soviet film of its decade. Set during World War II’s darkest days, THE ASCENT follows the path of two peasant soldiers, cut off from their troop, who trudge through the snowy backwoods of Belarus seeking refuge among villagers. Their harrowing trek leads them on a journey of betrayal, heroism and ultimate transcendence.
