Five by Claire Denis

Sunday, Oct 13 - Tuesday, Oct 22, 2013

“All my films function as a movement toward an unknown other and toward the unknown in relations between people,” said the French director Claire Denis, whose astonishing films investigate stories of displacement, while grounding viewers in the physical beauty of the landscape. There can be a stark, ominous beauty in her films, which are at once mysterious, precise, and breathtaking. On the occasion of her new film, Bastards, here is an opportunity to also see four of her greatest films, all in gorgeous 35mm prints. The prints of Chocolat and Trouble Every Day are brand new 35mm prints, released by The Film Desk.
