Aki Kaurismäki, Pedro Costa, Víctor Erice, and Manoel de Oliveira
CENTRO HISTÓRICO
2012, 90 min, 35mm. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles.

This new omnibus film, a remarkably successful example of a famously cursed form, brings together short films by four renowned and legendary filmmakers – Aki Kaurismäki, Pedro Costa, Víctor Erice, and Manoel de Oliveira. Though unified by a common theme – the producers asked each filmmaker to take their inspiration from the Portuguese city of Guimarães, the European Cultural Capital for 2012, and in particular to reflect on “the stories the city has to tell” – these four short films are radically different from each other. Sandwiched between two relatively light films (Kaurismäki’s typically dry and delicate TAVERN MAN and de Oliveira’s uncharacteristic foray into the explicitly comic, THE CONQUERED CONQUEROR), are Costa’s dark, claustrophobic, and deeply disquieting SWEET EXORCIST (starring his perpetual muse, Ventura, and marked by his usual ravishing command of digital video), and Erice’s fascinating, beautifully structured documentary study of a shuttered textile factory, BROKEN WINDOWS. As a whole, CENTRO HISTÓRICO encompasses four unique and varied perspectives on an ancient European city, as well as demonstrating the thrillingly varied range of sensibilities of these visionary filmmakers.

Fri, July 19 through Thurs, July 25 at 7:15 & 9:00 nightly. Additional screenings on Sat & Sun at 5:30.
