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.

EDVARD MUNCH
DIRECTOR: PETER WATKINS
SWEDEN/NORWAY, 1974

FACULTY PRESENTER: WAYNE WOODS—One of the most moving and insightful portrayals of the artistic process ever depicted on film, Watkins’s intensely personal biographical film recreates the struggles endured by Norwegian painter Edvard Munch. Crucified by critics and the public alike in the late nineteenth century, Munch is seen here as a young man in battle with puritanical Norwegian society and beset with various family tragedies and resultant depressions, all the while wrestling to give expression to his own artistic voice. “MUNCH is a rare jewel with many facets. One of those is its unorthodox union of sound and picture to create experiences that, while intellectually complex, are also deeply emotional. Watkins’s portrait speaks not only to Munch, but to Watkins’s own creative experience and the complexities of life and personal expression.”—Wayne Woods. (167 mins.)

School of Film instructor Wayne Woods will introduce the film.

THE LIVES OF OTHERS
DIRECTOR: FLORIAN HENCKEL VON DONNERSMARCK
GERMANY, 2006

FACULTY PRESENTER: HOLLY BRIX—A sweeping tale of the cruel exigencies of life in the former East Berlin, the story unfolds five years before the Communist downfall in 1989. In a climate of ruthless control and surveillance, Party loyalist Captain Gerd Wiesler hopes to boost his career when given the job of collecting evidence against an activist playwright and his girlfriend, a celebrated actress. But scrutinizing their lives has unforeseen consequences for Wiesler. The immersion in the lives of others—their love, literature, free thinking, and politics—makes Wiesler acutely aware of the emptiness of his own existence, opening him to a new way of thinking about the implications of personal acts. “Films have an obligation to entertain, an invitation to inspire, but when they capture the truth of human experience, they pierce you, and they transcend. This is film at its best.”—Holly Brix. (137 mins.)

School of Film screenwriting instructor Holly Brix will introduce the film.

TEKKONKINKREET
DIRECTOR: MICHAEL ARIAS
JAPAN, 2006

FACULTY PRESENTER: DANIEL JOHNSON—TEKKONKINKREET, which won the Japan Academy Prize for Best Animated Feature Film, is a metaphysical coming-of-age saga remarkable for its breathtaking visuals and fast-paced storytelling. Two kids must save the futuristic Treasure City from the schemes of a sinister yakuza, who wants to demolish the degenerate city and replace it with a gargantuan amusement park. “This exquisitely realized, high-impact anime—the title roughly translates as steel-reinforced concrete—is a classic tale of Good and Evil rendered in a dense visual style that both honors tradition while injecting a modern illustrative sensibility.”—Daniel Johnson. (111 mins.)

School of Film digital compositing and effects instructor Daniel Johnson will introduce the film.
