Transcript ILMS FILMS FILMS FILMS FILMS FILMS FILMS FILM THURSDAY 9 - 9:15 ajn. Le Voyage Dans La Lune (A Trip to the Moon). 1902, France. Written and directed by Georges Melies. "The success of A Trip to the Moon laid the foundations for the international preeminence of French films until the First World War. More than this, it established the appeal of films with "staged" scenes over everyday incidents, rudimentary documentaries, and outdoor scenes that had dominated film production since the days of Louis Lumiere." —Georges Sadoul. 9:15 - 11:07 a.m. Aelita. 1924, USSR. Directed by Yakov Protazanov. "A young Russian soldier starts a revolution among the slaves of the planet's ruler, Queen Aelita." —Dictionary of Films. 11:10 ajB. - 12:24 p.m. Happiness. 1934, USSR. Directed by Alexander Medvedkin. Surreal Soviet silent comedy that outdoes Sennett. "An exceptional film ... begins where Chaplin ends." —S. M. Eisenstein. With musical score. 12:30 - 2:05 p.m. Chac. 1975, Mexico(?). Written, produced and directed by Rolando Klein. In Mayan mythology, Chac is the God of Rain who exists in four aspects and rides a magnificent'white horse across the four paths of heaven. Lightning flashes from his terrible sword, while from his mouth proceeds deafening thunder. Bearing gourds overflowing with life-giving water Chac travels the heavens spilling rain across the dust-choked cornfields that blacken in the heat below. Chac is based on these ancient Mayan legends and the current beliefs and traditions of the modern descendents of the ancient tribes. In Mayan with English subtitles. 2:15 - 3:57 pun. The Magician. 1958, Sweden. Written and directed by Ingmar Bergman. With Max von Sydow, Ingrid Thulin, and Bibi Andersson. Also known as The Face. "The Face, when it came out, caused any amount of confusion, no doubt about that! And a certain amount of gloom and despondency, too. It seems to me that it was in that connection that critics began really tearing my films to pieces and scaring the daylights out of the public. There's no reason to take it seriously." —Ingmar Bergman. 4 - 5:35 pjn. Japanese Experimental Film. 1960-1980, Japan. Nine short films selected by Donald Richie.

Featured is the hardcore punk band, Bound And Gagged." — One Way Films. 10:23 - 10:27 p.m. Ungloved Hand. 1981, United States. Directed by Lisa Crafts. "In this witty variation of the magician and his assistant, the filmmaker employs beautifully rendered cell animation to make a wry feminist statement about sex-role stereotyping." —Rear Window Catalog. 10:27 - 10:30 p.m. Glass Gardens. 1982, United States. Directed by Lisa Crafts. Boston in a trance. midnight. Zardoz. 1974, USA. Directed by John Boorman. With Charlotte Rampling and Sean Connery.

Into their paradise comes Sean Connery as a kind of reverse messiah with the gift of death." — Films Incorpoated Catalog. 10:30 - FRIDAY 9 - 9:04 ajn. Beat It. c. 1980, USA. Directed by Elizabeth Sher. "This exercise in fixation on physical frustration introduces us to the carnival game Whackamole." —One Way Films 9:05 - 10:47 ajn.
