Double Feature!
Thu, Sep 11, 2014 • 7:30pm

The first two-thirds of Kieślowski’s THREE COLORS trilogy opens with 1993's BLUE, starring Juliette Binoche as a chic Parsian overcoming the loss of her husband and daughter. In its followup WHITE, celebrating its 20th anniversary, a luminous Julie Delpy plays a wife who leaves her impotent husband, in what's both a deliciously biting sex satire and a witty portrait of Poland in the early 1990s.

Double Feature!
Fri, Sep 12, 2014 • 7:30pm

In THE THREE COLORS' final installment RED, a swiss model (Irène Jacob) crosses paths with an embittered former judge (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a young law student, and - in a wonderful piece of cosmic stage-managing - the main characters from the previous films in the trilogy. It's followed by Kieślowski's THE DOUBLE LIFE OF VERONIQUE, which also stars Jacob in dual roles - as Polish singer Weronika and French music teacher Véronique, look-alikes who share a mysterious connection despite the brevity of their sole encounter.
