A Touch of Zen (Taiwan/Hong Kong, 1971)
Please note early start time
Apr 14, 2017 at 6:30 PM

A Wing Auditorium, Room A011

During the Ming Dynasty, a bookish small-town painter finds himself drawn into intrigue when a mysterious stranger sits for a portrait. Meanwhile, an alluring fugitive, fleeing corrupt officials, has sheltered near his home. Romance, spectacular swordplay and cunning battle plans soon follow. Yet, this masterful epic of the wuxia genre, oft cited as a primary influence upon "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," is also deeply beautiful and meditative, with a Buddhist monastery playing a crucial, philosophical role in the proceedings.

Time Out says, “Delights [and] transcendent moments ... the visual style will set your eyes on fire."

Dheepan (France, 2016)
May 5, 2017 at 7:00 PM

A Wing Auditorium, Room A011

When a Tamil Tiger attempts to flee Sri Lanka's Civil War, he finds that asylum status abroad is more quickly given to family units. Soon, two similarly desperate loners are posing as his wife and daughter. Settling in a Parisian housing project, this "family" begins adapting, both to each other and their surroundings, which grimly portend their own sectarian violence. Jacques Audiard continues his streak of confident, expressive cinema ("A Prophet," "Rust and Bone"), that has invited comparisons to Martin Scorsese. Winner of the Palme d'Or, The Playlist called this Audiard's "most compassionate and humanistic film to date."
