1/3-5: The Act of Killing, Short Term 12, Jan Nemec & more!

12/19/13  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

THE ACT OF KILLING is the most honored documentary of 2013
THE ACT OF KILLING is the most original, startling, and indelible documentary of the past year. Director Joshua Oppenheimer convinces the once feared, now elderly leader of Indonesia’s notorious 1960s death squads to re-enact some of his crimes—and demonstrate his murder techniques—for his film crew, thus lending a human face to unspeakable atrocities. The Village Voice calls the film "more terrifying than any horror film, and more intellectually adventurous than just about any 2013 release...A major achievement, a work about genocide that rightly earns its place alongside Shoah as a supreme testament to the cinema's capacity for inquiry, confrontation, and remembrance.” No one under 18 will be admitted to this movie that recently won the 2013 European Film Award for Best Documentary. See it Friday or Saturday. Watch the trailer here.

Orphaned young woman connects with blind strongman in unusual IL FUTURO
In the new Italian/Chilean film IL FUTURO, a recently orphaned teenage girl is enjoined by her brother and his gym buddies to seduce an aging, now-blind, ex-1960s-sword-and-sandal movie star (Rutger Hauer) so that they can rob the one-time Mr. Universe. But she and the strongman, both lost souls, discover an unexpected bond. This new film from a novel by Roberto Bolaño has been called "excitingly unclassifiable” (Village Voice). Catch its exclusive Cleveland theatrical premiere on Saturday or Sunday. Print this email and present it at the box office and see Il Futuro for only $7 ($6 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week! (Limit two discount admissions per print-out) Here's the trailer.

Jan Nemec series opens with hallucinatory Czech classic DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT
Jan Nemec’s impressive (and thoroughly cinematic) 1964 debut feature DIAMONDS OF THE NIGHT is an hallucinatory WWII film about the thoughts of two young Jewish men who manage to escape from a train bound for a concentration camp. It was co-written by celebrated Czech author Arnošt Lustig. Don't miss it on Saturday when it shows in a new 35mm print from the Czech National Film Archive in Prague. It will be preceded at 5:30 pm by Nemec’s 11-min. diploma film A Loaf of Bread (1960), based on a Lustig story. Special admission to this program is $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.

Five Czech New Wave directors shine in 1966 omnibus film PEARLS OF THE DEEP
In the 1966 Czech anthology film PEARLS OF THE DEEP, five wry, surreal, subversive short stories by celebrated Czech writer Bohumil Hrabal (Closely Watched Trains) are brought to the screen by Jan Nemec and four of his fellow New Wavers (Vera Chytilová, Jaromil Jires, Jirí Menzel, Evald Schorm). Nemec’s segment is set in a nursing home, where two old men stay alive by telling each other stories of their illustrious lives. See it on Sunday in a 35mm print from the Czech National Film Archive in Prague. Special admission is $10; Cinematheque members $8; age 25 & under $7; no passes, twofers, or radio winners.

SHORT TERM 12, a good one that got away, returns to Cleveland for two shows
If there is any justice, Brie Larson will be nominated for an Oscar for her electrifying performance in Destin Daniel Cretton's SHORT TERM 12, a wrenching, moving, woefully under-seen film that has a 98% “fresh” rating on She plays a twenty-something supervisor at a foster-care facility for at-risk teenagers, where she must quell the demons of her unpredictable, volatile charges—in addition to her own. Don't miss this buried gem when it return to Cleveland on Friday and Sunday. Watch the trailer here.
