First Charge Of The Machete

Cuban director Gómez combines elements of documentary form with extreme stylization in this experimental retelling of a battle between Cuban rebels and the Spanish army in 1868.

Take The Money And Run
May 01 – May 07
(Woody Allen, USA, 1969, 35mm, 85min)

Can Hieronymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe And Find True Happiness?
May 01 – May 07
(Anthony Newley, USA, 1969, 35mm, 107 min)
An entertaining disaster, this X-rated musical comedy is the autobiographical magnum opus of its writer-director-composer-star Anthony Newley. Hieronymus has recently turned 40 and watches a film of his own life unspool before his eyes.

My Night At Maud’s
Jun 19 – Jun 25
(Eric Rohmer, France, 1969, 35mm, 105 min)
In this brilliant centerpiece of Eric Rohmer’s “Moral Tales” series, Jean-Louis Trintignant plays one of the great conflicted figures of 1960s cinema — a pious Catholic engineer in his early thirties who vows to wed the delicate blonde Françoise only to have his rigid ethical standards challenged when he unwittingly spends the night at the apartment of a bold, brunette divorcée, Maud.

Duet for Cannibals
Jun 24 – Jun 25
(Susan Sontag, Sweden, 1969, 35mm, 105 min)
The directorial debut of famed American writer, philosopher, and political activist Susan Sontag is an intriguing tale of two couples involved in academia and politics.
