Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
LA FOLIE ALMAYER
Dir: Chantal Akerman
Freely adapted from Joseph Conrad's first novel, Chantal Akerman's hypnotic drama follows a European trader's faded dreams of finding fortune in Malaysia, and his broken relationship with his half-Malay daughter. Gorgeously shot in the dense, lush jungle, the film showcases Akerman's aesthetic tendencies for long takes and docudrama-style spontaneity. Official selection of the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival. In French, English and Central Khmer with English subtitles.
