July 5 – The Gleaners and I (Les glaneurs et la glaneuse), 2000

Agnes Varda of course is a gleaner herself. She is gleaning the gleaners. And in what appears to be a documentary she conceals a tender meditation about her own life, and life itself. 
Roger Ebert

La Jetée

Jul 12, 2016 - Jul 12, 2016

July 12 – La Jetée, 1962

La Jetée – a film made of photographs . . . but also made up of whispers, of heartbeats, of the roars of airplane – feels primitive to the eye and the ear even though it tells of the future. It is a time-travel story yet no movie is so frozen in time. It feels like a film in mourning for film, in memorial to itself.  
Michael Koresky, Echo Chamber: Listening to La Jetée

July 26 – Notfilm, 2015

I am lost in admiration for this work . . . the film is ambitious, thrilling and illuminating. It represents an invaluable addition to Beckett scholarship. NOTFILM is a superb film.
