Beyond the Clouds

When: Fri., Aug. 24, 8:45-10:30 p.m. 2018

The eighty-three-year-old Antonioni returned to filmmaking after a ten-year absence (triggered by a debilitating stroke that left him unable to speak) with this resolutely idiosyncratic treatise on that most old-fashioned of themes: beauty. Its four separate episodes, set in France and Italy, are based on stories in Antonioni’s collection That Bowling Alley on the Tiber: Tales of a Director. Stars such as Irène Jacob, Peter Weller, and Jean Reno all engage in narratives of love, its unattainability and its lure.

Price: $5-13
