SCREENING

Au Hasard Balthazar

Ongoing

Featuring the donkey Balthazar

Dir. Robert Bresson. 1966, 95 mins. 35mm. With Anne Wiazemsky, Walter Green. Robert Bresson’s great film Au Hasard Balthazar, follows the life of a donkey, from birth to death. Thanks to Bresson’s insistence on nonacting, the humans become only marginally more overt than the animals, and nearly as mysterious to look at. Ultimately, the film is about the remoteness and inviolable beauty of animal—and human—nature.
