When the first volume of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time appeared in 1913, it created a sensation. A new way of expressing the mysteries of human emotion had been discovered. These four films, each in its own way, visualize intertwining dramas of complex interior lives. There will be time for discussion after the film.
Les Dames du Bois de Boulogne
In Robert Bresson’s second feature film, based on a novelette by Denis Diderot and with dialogue written by Jean Cocteau, the director is already forging his singularly brilliant filmmaking, creating a moving study of the power of revenge and the strength of true love. (1945, 85 min.)
The Last Pig is a deeply immersive contemplation on life, death, and personal ethics as it follows a pig farmer grappling with his conscience. Through sparse, intimate musings, the farmer reveals the growing conflict of a life spent “peddling in death”—one he can no longer live with. The pace of the film is unhurried, allowing the viewer to experience and absorb life on the farm, the herds of intelligent and trusting pigs, the steel and concrete slaughterhouse, and “the ghosts.” The film will be followed by a Q&A with Director/Producer Allison Argo. Ms. Argo is a six-time Emmy-winning filmmaker and noted animal advocate. Producer and Director of Photography Joseph Brunette is an award-winning cinematographer whose work has appeared on National Geographic, CNN, PBS, NOVA, Nature, Discovery and History, and has taken him around the world. These filmmakers, along with farmer and writer Bob Comis, provide a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Come find out about Bob’s experience as a pig farmer, and his decision to become a vegetable farmer instead.
