Maria Schneider, 1983

Arthouse Spotlight

In French + English w/ English + French subtitles.

In a cross-genre work that bends time, history, and form, three acclaimed actresses (Manal Issa / Aïssa Maïga / Isabel Sandoval) reenact a troubling interview with the iconic French actress Maria Schneider (1952-2011), whose traumatic experience on the set of the legendary Last Tango In Paris only resurfaced after #metoo. As Maria transforms through multiple interpretations, Subrin asks her audience to listen again and to see the similarity and difference in repetition.

The Passenger

Michelangelo Antonioni (Dir), 126 minutes, Italy, France, Spain

In English, French, German + Spanish w/ English subtitles.

David Locke (Jack Nicholson) is a world-weary American journalist who has been sent to cover a conflict in northern Africa, but he makes little progress with the story. When he discovers the body of a stranger who looks similar to him, Locke assumes the dead man's identity. However, he soon finds out that the man was an arms dealer, leading Locke into dangerous situations. Aided by a beautiful woman (Maria Schneider), Locke attempts to avoid both the police and criminals out to get him.
