Michael Powell called their partnership "a marriage without sex," and Emeric Pressburger said, "Ours is an ideal way of working together, and at the same time, working separately." It was an unlikely pairing of the lean, unmistakably British Powell and the stocky, worldly Hungarian Pressburger that resulted in some of the most intelligently written, beautifully conceived and photographed, and gloriously romantic films in cinema history. Join us for a program that includes THE RED SHOES, BLACK NARCISSUS, GONE TO EARTH, A CANTERBURY TALE and PEEPING TOM.

The last 10 years have seen an explosive growth in Mexican cinema, and the annual Guadalajara International Film Festival has served as a bellwether for the movie industry south of the border.

It’s a weeklong taste of Mexican movies that’s no less than ¡magnífico!

The Wall Street Journal recently described Frantisek Vlacil as “a director whose work should be world-renowned.” MARKETA LAZAROVA, the haunting film widely acknowledged to be his masterpiece, was voted the best Czech film of all time. Join us for a tribute to this giant of Czech cinema, including screenings of SIRIUS, THE WHITE DOVE and SHADOWS OF A HOT SUMMER. We invite you to discover this remarkable director during the short time that these rare 35mm prints remain in the U.S.!

Nicholas Ray (1911 - 1979) spent his early years soaking up a staggering array of influences, including studying architecture with Frank Lloyd Wright, working with Elia Kazan in New York’s Theatre of Action, and promoting folk music with Pete Seeger and Alan Lomax. Ray soon gained a reputation for his unique, intuitive rapport with actors and for his combative, almost sadomasochistic relationship with the Hollywood establishment. Although his strangest, most daring (and some say greatest) film came in 1954, with the surreal Joan Crawford Western JOHNNY GUITAR, it was the epochal REBEL WITHOUT A CAUSE that was his most widely acclaimed success. Join us for this centennial salute to his work, including screenings of BIGGER THAN LIFE and the not-on-DVD KNOCK ON ANY DOOR starring Humphrey Bogart.
