THE HUMAN CONDITION dominates upcoming weekend of great films

Masaki Kobayashi's humanisitc saga THE HUMAN CONDITION is the centerpiece of the upcoming Cinematheque weekend. Made between 1959 and 1961, this three-part, ten-hour Japanese epic -- which charts a pacifist's progress during WWII -- is "the finest achievement yet made by the cinema" according to film historian David Shipman. It stars longtime Japanse movie star Tatsuya Nakadai ("Kagemusha," "Ran") and will be shown in a new 35mm, cinemascope print.
     The film's three parts will be shown over three Thursdays (1/8, 1/15, 1/22), starting this Thursday at 7:00 pm. The three parts will also be shown, in their entirety, this coming Saturday starting at 10:00 am (10 am, 3 pm, 7:30 pm). There will be a 60-90 minute break between each part. The three parts can be seen in any combination; admission to each part is $8, Cinematheque members and CIA students & staff $6, or $20 ($18 for Cinematheque members and CIA students/staff) for the whole saga on Saturday. But it is not necessary to see the whole ten-hour film. Each part stands alone, and seeing a portion of the movie is certainly better than seeing none of it.

Poignant romance BRIEF ENCOUNTER continues David Lean series; enjoy tea and biscuits before Sunday's showing

BRIEF ENCOUNTER is one of the most beloved of all British love stories, and you can see it in a new, fully-restored 35mm film print (from England) this coming Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. It is the second of 10 David Lean films that the Cinematheque will show between now and March 1.
     Trevor Howard and Celia Johnson star in this poignant, Noel Coward-penned picture that helped immortalize Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto. It is also one of the all-time favorite films of Cinematheque director John Ewing. Tea and biscuits will be served before the movie starting at 3:30 pm. Don't miss it!
Single screenings of I.O.U.S.A., KENNY, AUGUST EVENING flesh out weekend

Single screenings of three other terrific new movies flesh out this upcoming Cinematheque weekend. (Dates and times will be found at right.) I.O.U.S.A. is a sobering, Oscar-short-listed feature-length documentary about the ballooning national debt. KENNY, back by popular demand for an almost-unprecedented third engagement, is a hilarious and heartwarming tale of a lovable Aussie lug who installs port-a-potties for a living. It has an amazing 100% "fresh" rating (unanimous favorable reviews from the nation's film critics) on rottentomatoes.com. Finally, AUGUST EVENING (pictured above) is a new Spanish-language, American independent feature that was nominated for two major 2008 Independent Spirit Awards (including Best Actor) and won the prize for best film made under $500,000. This touching domestic drama was influenced by the sensitive, family-centered work of the great Japanese filmmaker Yasujiro Ozu, a longtime Cinematheque favorite.
