Medium Cool (1969) <h4>Learning Beyond the Classics</h4>
The protests of 1968, made visible by increased and more accessible media, often harken memories of the 1968 Democratic National Convention, which is portrayed here in Haskell Wexler’s 1969 narrative film about the ripped-from-the-headlines events. John Cassellis (Robert Forster) is a hardened TV news cameraman who manages to keep his distance while he captures daring footage of a nation in the throes of violent change. He maintains this professional detachment when he covers the social unrest in Chicago surrounding the 1968 DNC. But, when he discovers that the TV network has been quietly cooperating with the FBI, the enraged Cassellis realizes that he too must join the fight against the establishment.

This new documentary explores the integral Native American influence on popular music history, despite attempts to ban, censor, and erase Native culture in the United States. Tracing through various moments and genres in American music history, the documentary strays from standard documentary film address with playful re-creations to highlight little-known stories, supplementing that with concert footage, archives, and interviews.

Faces Places (2017) <h4>New at the Browning</h4>
A leading figure of the French New Waves (specifically its Left Bank subset), Agnès Varda is still making celebrated films (Faces Places received an Oscar nomination for Best Feature Documentary) at 89 years of age. In her latest experimental-yet-warm film, she and professional photographer and muralist JR hit the countryside, an often-tackled subject for Varda. Together, they travel around France in a special box truck equipped as a portable photo booth and printing facility as they take photographs of people around the country. With that inspiration, they also create special colossal mural pictures of individuals, communities and places they want to honor and celebrate. Along the way, the old cinematic veteran and the young artistic idealist enjoy an odd friendship as they chat and explore their views on the world as only they can.

Young Marx (2017) <h4>National Theatre Live</h4>
It’s 1850, and Europe’s most feared terrorist is hiding in Dean Street, Soho. Broke, restless, and horny, the 32-year-old revolutionary is a frothing combination of intellectual brilliance, invective, satiric wit, and child-like emotional illiteracy. Creditors, spies, rival revolutionary factions, and prospective seducers of his beautiful wife all circle like vultures. His writing blocked, his marriage dying, his friend Engels in despair at his wasted genius, his only hope is a job on the railway. But there’s still no one in the capital who can show you a better night on the piss than Karl Heinrich Marx.

In the Year of the Pig (1968) <h4>Learning Beyond the Classics</h4>
While certainly in the background of many films, the Vietnam War receives central focus in this documentary by Emile de Antonio, who delivers both a condemnation of the Vietnam War and a history lesson on its roots. Beginning with the French colonialists at the turn of the 20th century and continuing through Communist leader Ho Chi Minh's rise to power and the beginnings of American involvement in the region in the early 1950s, de Antonio combines historical news footage and his own interviews with prominent figures like peace activist Daniel Berrigan and journalist David Halberstam.

Jesus Christ Superstar (1973) <h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice wanted to write a rock opera about Jesus Christ from Judas Iscariot's point of view. Just in their twenties at the time, the two recorded the Jesus Christ Superstar cast album. With proof of principle in place, they launched a Broadway musical, which was later adapted by Norman Jewison (fresh off Fiddler on the Roof) for film. The film version is told through a popup musical that springs from a hippie schoolbus traveling in the desert and, like the musical, recounts the last days of Jesus Christ (Ted Neeley) with an emphasis on the role Judas Iscariot (Carl Anderson), his betrayer, played in his death and the emotions behind it.
Thu 3/29/18 7:00PM Browning Cinema

Pooh then acts on intuition and uses all the resources he can muster to keep things from figuratively and literally blowing away.

Così fan Tutte<h4>The Met: Live in HD</h4>

Symbiopsychotaxiplasm (1968) <h4>Learning Beyond the Classics</h4>
Director William Greaves begins filming a movie scene in Central Park: an argument between a couple. At the same time, a documentary crew films the crew filming the movie. Meanwhile, a third crew films the filming of the two films. As Greaves plays the role of clueless artist and on-set conditions deteriorate, his collaborators mutiny. The result is a head-spinning landmark of experimental film that playfully smears the line between fiction/reality and art/artifice.

Faces (1968) <h4>Learning Beyond the Classics</h4>
Seen by many as the Granddaddy of American independent cinema, John Cassavetes’ work would set the stage for much of New Hollywood in the 1970s and mumblecore of the 2000s. Faces received widespread recognition, including multiple Oscar nominations, a rarity for a film completed so acutely outside the studio system. Here, middle-aged suburban husband Richard (John Marley) abruptly tells his wife, Maria (Lynn Carlin), that he wants a divorce. As Richard takes up with a younger woman (Gena Rowlands), Maria enjoys a night on the town with her friends and meets a younger man (Seymour Cassel). As the couple and those around them confront a seemingly futile search for what they've lost—love, excitement, and passion—this classic American independent film explores themes of aging and alienation.

In Don’t Monkey with Broadway, two-time Tony Award-winner Patti LuPone explores, through indelible interpretations of classic Broadway show tunes by the likes of Richard Rodgers, Lorenz Hart, Jule Styne, Stephen Schwartz, Charles Strouse, Leonard Bernstein, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin, how her life-long love affair with Broadway began and her concern for what the Great White Way is becoming today.

“Patti LuPone imparts the aura of a New York class act. Her songs are propelled by emotional purpose, intensity, both ardent and burning, and enormous comic flair.”The New York Times

Night of the Living Dead (1968) <h4>Learning Beyond the Classics</h4>
A hugely important film for many reasons (e.g., how it was made, how it was distributed, the zeitgeist it tackled), George Romero’s zombie classic is an Urtext for the billions and billions of dollars and hours and hours of time devoted to zombies. In his low-budget classic, a disparate group of individuals takes refuge in an abandoned house when corpses begin to leave the graveyard in search of fresh human bodies to devour. The pragmatic Ben (Duane Jones) does his best to control the situation, but when the reanimated bodies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic. As any semblance of order within the group begins to dissipate, the zombies start to find ways inside. And one by one, the living humans become the prey of the walking dead.
