Oscar® Nominated Animated Short Films<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

This year's slate of Oscar® Nominated Animated Shorts includes an eclectic mix of styles, from Pixar's lushness to stark comic book lines, and subjects, from familial wherewithal to a sandpiper looking for dinner. The five films nominated for the Academy Award are supplemented with other titles to give a wide snapshot of animation active outside of the styles often seen in standard animated blockbusters.

Oscar® Nominated Documentary Short Films&mdash;Program B<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

We divide the five nominees for Best Documentary Short Film into two programs. In the second, two films from the UK tell compelling stories from the current refugee crisis. Watani: My Homeland follows four young children live with their mother and father, a Free Syrian Commander, in Aleppo; after their father is captured by ISIS, the children flee with their mother and we see their pained journey to establish a new home. The White Helmets, the eponymous group known for being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, are unarmed and neutral civilian volunteers who comb through the rubble after bombings to rescue survivors. Both documentaries blend to show gripping tales of survival and the pressing need to address the refugee crisis.

Blue Velvet (1986)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Fresh off his widely-derided adaptation of Dune (1984), David Lynch returned to the idyllic small-town life to undress its seedy underbelly, a common focus of his, in this polarizing neo-noir mystery. Jeffrey (Kyle MacLachlan) returns to his sleepy hometown of Lumberton where he discovers a severed ear in a meadow. He teams up with a police officer’s daughter (Laura Dern) to investigate its source, and their Bloodhound Ganging takes a decidedly darker turn than the standard Edward Stratemeyer book when they begin following a local nightclub singer (Isabella Rossellini).

The mystery continues to take sharper turns when the sleuths encounter the dangerous Frank Booth (Dennis Hopper). Stuffed with common Lynchian motifs, the film’s dreamlike sampling of pop culture and Freudian allusions set a framework he later revisited in Wild at Heart, Twin Peaks, and Mullholland Drive.

Black Girl (La noire de ... ) (1966)/Borom Sarret (1963)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Ousmane Sembène, made his feature debut in 1966 with the brilliant and stirring Black Girl (La noire de ... ). Sembène transforms a deceptively simple plot—about a young Senegalese woman who moves to France to work for a wealthy white couple and finds that her life becomes a figurative and literal prison—into a complex, layered critique on the lingering colonialist mindset of a supposedly postcolonial world. Featuring a moving central performance by Mbissine Thérèse Diop, Black Girl is a harrowing human drama as well as a radical political statement—and one of the essential films of the '60s. Black Girl will be preceded by Sembène’s first film, Borom Sarret, a short piece focusing on the life of a cart driver in Dakar.

Lost and Beautiful (Bella e perduta) (2015)<h4>Nanovic Institute Film Series</h4>

While filming a documentary on Tommasso Cestrone, the volunteer steward of a dilapidated palace in Castera, director Pietro Marcello hoped to bring attention to labor and, broadly, the effects of austerity and crime syndicates on the Italian countryside and its ecologies. When Cestrone passed away during filming, Marcello continued the documentary by shifting its narrative directly into the fabulist realm, complete with a narrating buffalo named Sarciapone and a Puncinella character rising from Mt. Vesuvius to travel with Sarciapone throughout Italy. After that lane change to a cottony road movie, the hybrid film ruminates on nature’s tenderness, Italy’s calmative ruralities, and the mortality of all beasts of burden, be they human or buffalo.

Co-presented by Nanovic Institute of European Studies.

Thu 3/2/17 7:00PM Browning Cinema

The Salesman (2016)<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

Winner of both Best Actor and Best Screenplay at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, this Iranian film generated substantial notoriety when Asghar Farhadi, already an Oscar winner for A Separation, decided not to attend the Academy Awards despite his nomination in protest to current American travel policies for Iran. That current political drama reverberates alongside Farhadi’s tense domestic film in which a young Tehrani couple (Shahab Hosseini and Taraneh Alidoosti) play the lead roles in a local production of Death of a Salesman. The couple also moves into a new house, and the strain they encounter further complicates a collapsing relationship.

Pather Panchali (1955)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

With the release in 1955 of Satyajit Ray’s debut, Pather Panchali, an eloquent and important new cinematic voice made itself heard all over the world. A depiction of rural Bengali life in a style inspired by Italian neorealism, this naturalistic but poetic evocation of a number of years in the life of a family introduces us to both little Apu and, just as essentially, the women who will help shape him: his independent older sister, Durga; his harried mother, Sarbajaya, who, with her husband away, must hold the family together; and his kindly and mischievous elderly “auntie,” Indir—vivid, multifaceted characters all.

Philharmonia Quartett Berlin <h4>Presenting Series</h4>

Since their foundation in 1985, the Philharmonia Quartett Berlin has been a world-renowned quartet, especially known for their interpretations of Beethoven and Shostakovich. The quartet has an extensive repertoire that spans from the Classical Era to contemporary works.

Sun 3/5/17 2:00PM Leighton Concert Hall

Aparajito (1956)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

Satyajit Ray had not planned to make a sequel to Pather Panchali, but after the film’s international success, he decided to continue Apu’s narrative. Aparajito picks up with Apu and his family having moved away from the country to live in the bustling holy city of Varanasi (then known as Benares). As Apu progresses from wide-eyed child to intellectually curious teenager, eventually studying in Kolkata, we witness his academic and moral education, as well as the growing complexity of his relationship with his mother. This tenderly expressive, often heart-wrenching film, which won three top prizes at the Venice Film Festival, including the Golden Lion, not only extends but also spiritually deepens the tale of Apu.

Desperately Seeking Susan (1985)<h>Classics at the Browning</h4>

An unfulfilled housewife (Rosanna Arquette), stuck in the milquetoast suburbs of New Jersey, suffers amnesia after an accident. Upon awaking, she is mistaken for an incredibly fashionable drifter (Madge), and the plot takes a Carrollian trip through mid-80’s New York City. Often noted as Madonna’s first major film role (if one overlooks Vision Quest), Desperately Seeking Susan impacted the playlists and sartorial choices for the second Reagan administration while placing Susan Seidelman on the path to directing more comedic films focused on and starring women, including Making Mr. Right and She-Devil.

The World of Apu (Apu Sansar)<h4>Classics at the Browning</h4>

This extraordinary final chapter in Ray’s “Apu Trilogy” brings our protagonist’s journey full circle. Apu is now in his early 20s, out of college, and hoping to live as a writer. Alongside his professional ambitions, the film charts his romantic awakening, which occurs as the result of a most unlikely turn of events, and his eventual, fraught fatherhood. Featuring soon to be Ray regulars Soumitra Chatterjee and Sharmila Tagore in star-making performances, and demonstrating Ray’s ever more impressive skills as a crafter of pure cinematic imagery, Apur Sansar is a moving conclusion to this monumental trilogy.

Sing Street (2016)<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

Sent to a new school as his family hits economic and emotional hard times, a young Dubliner (Ferdia Walsh-Peedo) forms and fronts a ragtag band (the eponymous Sing Street) with classmates as English New Wave music crests in the 1980s. After overplaying their hand to impress a local girl, the band hustles to record songs in a makeshift living room studio. Beholden to the whims of older siblings’ varying tastes and the merry-go-round of stylish hairstyles, the band reinvents itself often (from Duran Duran to The Cure) while creating one-shot music videos to raise their visibility. The cheery result is like setting Son of Rambow to music and lyrics.

Blow Out (1981)<h4> Classics at the Browning</h4>

John Travolta gives one of his greatest performances, as a movie sound-effects man who believes he has accidentally recorded a political assassination. He enlists the help of a possible eyewitness to the crime (Nancy Allen), who may be in danger herself, to uncover the truth. With its jolting stylistic flourishes, intricate plot, profoundly felt characterizations, and gritty evocation of early '80s Philadelphia, Blow Out is an American paranoia thriller unlike any other, as well as a devilish reflection on moviemaking.

The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble (2015)
<h4> New at the Browning</h4>

Director Morgan Neville received the Academy Award for Best Documentary for 20 Feet to Stardom, a film highlighting the backup singers overlooked as their songs turn platinum. Yo-Yo Ma’s efforts to bring recognition to largely unknown musicians and instruments through his Silk Road Ensemble project aligns neatly with Neville’s discover-the-undiscovered wheelhouse. Ultimately a mix of travelogue and musical, the documentary shows the depth and breadth of world music.

The Red Turtle (2016)<h4>New at the Browning</h4>

Another striking animated feature with ties to Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, this film pulls in an European element with British-Dutch Michael Dudok de Wit co-writing and directing. Deeply allegorical, the film’s simple plot and lack of dialogue allows the striking visuals to take the limelight. Fans of Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and other Studio Ghibli films should find engrossing the film’s adventures of a castaway who finds himself on an island looking for purpose.

A German daughter (Sanrda Hüller) is surprised by her estranged father (Peter Simonischek), who joins her unannounced as she is outposted in Romania with her corporation. A retired music teacher with a penchant for pranks and a hippie streak, the father dons a costume and creates a persona (named Toni Erdmann) to goof his daughter. His short gag cements itself as the new Herr Erdmann becomes interwoven with his daughter’s workplace. This year’s toast of Europe’s art cinema scene and Film Comment’s #1 film of the year, the film would become the fourth German film to win the Foreign Language Oscar and first since The Lives of Others.

Close-up (1990)<h4> Classics at the Browning</h4>

Internationally revered Iranian filmmaker Abbas Kiarostami has created some of the most inventive and transcendent cinema of the past 30 years, and Close-up is his most radical, brilliant work. This fiction-documentary hybrid uses a sensational real-life event—the arrest of a young man on charges that he fraudulently impersonated the well-known filmmaker Mohsen Makhmalbaf—as the basis for a stunning, multilayered investigation into movies, identity, artistic creation, and existence, in which the real people from the case play themselves. With its universal themes and fascinating narrative knots, Close-up has resonated with viewers around the world.

Sweetie (1989)<h4> Classics at the Browning</h4>

A feast of colorful photography and captivating, idiosyncratic characters, the tough and tender Sweetie heralded the emergence of this gifted director, as well as a renaissance of Australian cinema, which would take the film world by storm in the '90s.
