Nastassja Kinski: From the Heart

Nastassja Kinski: From the Heart

Nov 27 - Dec 3

Nastassja Kinski was not yet 15 when she began her remarkable acting career, bouncing back and forth between Europe and the U.S. and working with some of the world’s premier filmmakers. In Francis Ford Coppola’s One from the Heart, Wim Wenders’s Paris, Texas, and Roman Polanski’s Tess, among other films, Kinski mastered the art of being at once physically present yet mysteriously withdrawn. Today she remains one of the most elusive and fascinating figures in modern cinema.

Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema 2014

Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema 2014

Dec 4 - Dec 8

The vibe of the ninth edition of Making Waves: New Romanian Cinema is perhaps best captured by Faulkner’s famous words “The past is never dead. It’s not even past.” Twenty-five years have passed since the fall of Communism, but for most of the films in this series, the past remains unfinished business.

Let There Be Light: The Films of John Huston

Let There Be Light: The Films of John Huston

Dec 19 - Jan 11

A renaissance man unbound to genre and a painterly stylist attuned to the look of each scene, Huston was one of the greatest filmmakers of Hollywood’s golden age: an artist of great toughness, conviction, and eloquence; a master storyteller; a hardened cynic; a reluctant romantic; a stellar director of actors, and a brilliant actor himself.
