11-year-old Leo has a secret. A mysterious illness has transformed him into a phantom boy, able to leave the confines of his body and explore the city as a ghostly apparition. The highly anticipated new film from the Academy Award-nominated writers and directors of A Cat In Paris is a stylish animated noir caper, set in the shadowy streets and alleyways of New York.

Widely disparaged by reviewers on its release (it rates just 39% on the aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes) and a box office failure, Birth is a sorely misunderstood film, and more than that, a surrealist masterpiece. Nicole Kidman plays a young Manhattan widow who is bemused, angered, appalled, and finally captivated and enraptured by the strange courtship of a ten-year-old boy (Vancouver’s Cameron Bright) who claims to be Sean, her late husband.

Copresented by the Lacan Salon and the APW Conference On Love, this screening will include remarks and discussion led by Christine Evans and Ona Nierenberg, PhD.

Catalonia’s Jose Luis Guerin is arguably the least well known of contemporary greats; his penchant for teasing poetry out of non-fiction approach has been emulated by many, but rarely matched. Here a professor of philology flirts with his female students and engages in amorous discourse with his wife. "Consistently amusing, frequently stimulating, and occasionally erotic work."
