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.

Two of the Spanish-speaking world’s finest actors, Ricardo Darin and Javier Camara, team up for this moving, wry film about friendship, family, and last wishes. Julian (Darin) is dying, but doing his best not to make a big deal of it. Unexpectedly, his old friend Tomas (Camara) shows up on his doorstep (all the way from Canada). He can only stay for a few days, but Tomas means to make them count, whether Julian likes it or not. All the latter seems to care about is what to do about Truman, his beloved dog…

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.

Director: Miguel Gomes


Jul 04 08:50 pm

Gloriously lyrical, sumptuously shot, occasionally funny and unabashedly romantic—Miguel Gomes’ (Our Beloved Month of August) latest "moves from modern-day Lisbon to a rapturous evocation of romance in colonial Africa. But no plot description can do justice to the idiosyncratic poetry of director Miguel Gomes." Sight & Sound.

Ciro Guerra

(El abrazo de la serpiente)

Country of Origin: Colombia, 2015
B&W By Design: Monochrome Movies in the Colour Era
Director: Ciro Guerra


Jul 04 06:30 pm

Academy Award nominee: Best Foreign Language Film, Guerra’s film is a bewitching Amazonian odyssey inspired by two historical forays deep into the jungle by European anthropologists. Filmed in stunning black and white, this is a potent, poetic, political film reminiscent of Herzog’s Fitzcarraldo and Aguirre.

Tomás Gutiérrez Alea

Cuba Now & Then
Director: Tomás Gutiérrez Alea


Jul 24 06:30 pm

A middle-class intellectual who stayed in Cuba after the

Revolution in 1959 faces a new world he does not seem to grasp. Selected among the best 2000 films of all times by the International Federation of Film-Clubs. Based on Edmundo Desnoes’s award-winning novel. "This audacious, sensual portrait of an alienated intellectual in the early days of Castro’s Cuba, released in 1968, is one of the great movies of its era." Michael Sragow, New Yorker
