Four French Films: Echoes of Proust
Feb 27 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Four French Films: Echoes of Proust

Four French Films: Echoes of Proust
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.)

Film Screening: THE LAST PIG
Mar 6 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
THE LAST PIG is a lyrical meditation on what it means to be a sentient creature with the power to kill. Deeply immersive, the film is a 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 pigs–so clearly intelligent and trusting, the steel and concrete slaughterhouse, and the ghosts. With bittersweet detail, against the stunning backdrop of upstate New York, THE LAST PIG is a documentary that offers an entirely new view of small-scale livestock farming, and raises crucial questions about the ethics of eating.

Bob Comis: Farmer & Writer. For the first few decades of his life, Bob Comis was oblivious to the suffering of non – human (and human) animals. Thanks to the courage and bravery of undercover investigators who secretly capture and share footage of the twin horrors of factory farming and industrial slaughter, Bob was roused from his ignorance. He became a vegan, but quickly failed. In search of an alternative to factory – farmed meat, he became a humane pig farmer – and quickly succeeded. He raised pigs for slaughter for ten years, until a powerful sense of empathy and compassion propelled him to change the course of his life. He decided to quit pig farming, start a vegetable farm, and become a vegetarian (vegan, in 2015). Today, when Bob pulls a beet out of the ground, or unearths a brilliant cluster of potatoes, he is able to be fully present, which is very much the opposite of his experience when he farmed pigs, which he did from a distance, divorced from the moment, disconnected from himself.
