THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

Man in the Dunes: Hiroshi Teshigahara
Japanese Director, Hiroshi Teshigahara (1927 - 2001) lived a dozen artistic lives: sculptor, painter, opera director, interior designer, writer and master of traditional Japanese art forms. But it was his career as a filmmaker that brought him the most recognition. His small body of independently produced films broke cinematic boundaries in Japan and found international audiences intrigued by his thought provoking visions.

ANTONIO GAUDÍ
DIRECTOR: HIROSHI TESHIGAHARA
JAPAN
One artist's contemplation of another's legacy, Teshigahara's "architectural symphony" explores the work of the legendary Antonio Gaudi, the famed Catalan architect who sensually combined Gothic, Middle Eastern, and traditional architecture into his own unique style. "The imagery in Antonio Gaudi is nothing less than astounding in its beauty and boldness."-THE NEW YORK TIMES.

WOMAN IN THE DUNES
DIRECTOR: HIROSHI TESHIGAHARA
JAPAN
Winner of the Special Jury Prize at Cannes and nominated for two Academy Awards, Teshigahara's masterpiece is a haunting examination of power, sexuality and survival fueled by stunning visual imagery. An entomologist, staying overnight in a small town, finds a mysterious young widow living in a makeshift house at the bottom of a deep sandpit on a deserted beach. He becomes her prisoner, trapped both by the encroaching sand which he must shovel to resist being buried alive and her erotic power. "It's like a dream - the kind from which you awake bolt upright in a cold sweat." -THE GUARDIAN, London.

PITFALL
DIRECTOR: HIROSHI TESHIGAHARA
JAPAN
A mysterious man in a white suit and sunglasses casually commits a series of murders in a small mining community and in the process reveals dark secrets about the town. Teshigahara called his unsettling first feature a 'documentary-fantasy,' referring to the offhand way it captures the ghostly qualities of the tale. As murdered characters show up later to comment on the action in the manner of a Greek chorus-"Why was I killed? What was it for? Where was the meaning in my life?"-their questions, of course, remaining unanswered.

THE FACE OF ANOTHER
DIRECTOR: HIROSHI TESHIGAHARA
JAPAN
Teshigahara's chilling psychological thriller explores the meaning of individual identity. Akira Kurosawa regular Tatsuya Nakadai (the reckless gunfighter in YOJIMBO and the lead in RAN) plays a man who becomes horribly disfigured in an accident, leaving his face scarred and covered in bandages that repel all around him. He persuades his psychiatrist to make him an artificial face, quite different from his own, providing the opportunity to assume a new persona and obsessively revenge the cold treatment extended by his fellow human beings.
