Synopsis from the Janus Collection: One of the very first prison escape

as French soldiers held in a World War I German prison camp, and Erich
von Stroheim as the unforgettable Captain von Rauffenstein.

UGETSU

Director: Kenji Mizoguchi Japan 1953

MONDAY, NOVEMBER 1ST (4-6PM RM 21)

Synopsis from the Janus Collection: “Quite simply one of the greatest
of filmmakers,” said Jean-Luc Godard of Kenji Mizoguchi. And Ugetsu, a
ghost story like no other, is surely the Japanese director’s supreme
achievement. Derived from stories by Akinari Ueda and Guy de Maupassant,
this haunting tale of love and loss—with its exquisite blending of the
otherworldly and the real—is one of the most beautiful films ever
made.

VIRIDIANA

Director: Luis Buñuel Spain 1961

MONDAY, DECEMBER 6TH (4-6PM RM 21)

Synopsis from the Janus Collection: Banned in Spain and denounced by the
Vatican, Luis Buñuel’s irreverent vision of life as a beggar’s
banquet is regarded by many as his masterpiece. In it, novice nun
Viridiana does her utmost to maintain her Catholic principles, but her
lecherous uncle and a motley assemblage of paupers force her to confront
the limits of her idealism. Winner of the Palme d’or at the 1961
Cannes Film Festival, Viridiana is as audacious today as ever.
