The Trial


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Orson Welles. 1962, 119 mins. DCP. With Anthony Perkins, Jeanne Moreau. Josef K. (Perkins) is accused of an unspecified crime and shambles through a series of bizarre encounters in an attempt to clear his name in the face of a hellish bureaucracy. The surreal nightmare of Franz Kafka’s source novel inspired the dazzling, off-kilter visual style of one of Welles’s neglected masterworks.
