Screening Schedule:

Spellbound (B&W/1945/111’)
Dir: Alfred Hitchcock
Summary: A typical Hitchcock psychological mystery thriller , a female psychiatrist protects the identity of an amnesia patient accused of murder while attempting to recover his memory. Highlight of the movie is a dream sequence designed by the surrealistic iconic painter Salvador Dali. The dream is full of psychoanalytic symbols—eyes, curtains, scissors, playing cards (some of them blank), a man with no face, a man falling off a building, a man hiding behind a chimney dropping a wheel, and wings.

The Horse’s Mouth (Eng/1958/ 97’)
Dir: Ronald Neame
Summary: Story of a crooked muralist Gulley Jimson (played by Alec Guinness) who is broke, difficult, conniving and uncouth. The visions in his head may not really satisfy him when realized, but the quest continues, for the perfect wall. The Beeders leave for six weeks of vacation and return to find a 7000 pound committment and the wall of their living room a national treasure, even though living with a wall mural of feet is not their cup of tea. Then - in a bombed out church scheduled for demolition - THE wall that can become his vision

The Mill And The Cross (Eng/2011/92’)
Dir: Lech Majewski
Summary: The Mill and the Cross is a movie inside of a painting, specifically The Way to Calvary (1564) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Pieter Bruegel (Rutger Hauer) is the main character in the film which takes turns following him as he decides how his painting will take shape and who will be in it and also follows the local peasants who go about their daily business in middle of 16th century Flanders. The background is always the actual painting's background with the mill high up on a rock looking down on a large field where most of the action occurs. Behind every great painting lies an even greater story.
