Twelfth Night

Shipwrecked in a storm, a pair of twins wash ashore not knowing if the other survived. Cross-dressing as a boy servant, Viola stumbles into love with a wealthy Duke. But the Duke desperately pines for the beautiful Olivia, sending the “boy servant” to deliver his love letters. Things get messy when everyone (including Olivia) falls for “the boy” and long-lost twin brother Sebastian shows up. Twelfth Night has it all – romance, mystery, and plenty of high court shenanigans.

Sonoma Film Institute Presents THE CLOCK

“THE CLOCK marks Judy Garland’s frst non-musical star vehicle. On the strength of his great success with Garland on MEET ME IN ST. LOUIS, MGM put Vincent Minnelli in charge of the picture; he responded immediately to the urgency and vitality of THE CLOCK’s time and place: New York City during World War II. On a two-day pass, Robert Walker’s gangly soldier clings to Garland’s sympathetic secretary for a whirlwind courtship in the hours before he ships overseas, only to lose her in the city’s rush. The sounds of the city itself serenade the lovers—tug boat horns and subway rails set the mood in Riverside Park—while Minnelli never finches from the wartime backdrop that underscores the romance with desperate uncertainty. THE CLOCK demonstrates Minnelli’s early ability to give the affective lives of his protagonists vivid urgency onscreen.” – Harvard Film Archive (1945, 90 min.)

Sonoma Film Institute Presents: By The Time It Gets Dark (Dao Khanong)

“In the beguiling, mysterious second feature by Thai director Anocha Suwichakornpong, the story of a young flm director researching a project about the 1976 massacre of Thai student activists at Thamassat University is just the beginning of a shape-shifting work of fctions within fctions, featuring characters with multiple identities. Drifting across a dizzyingly wide expanse of space and time, BY THE TIME IT GETS DARK offers a series of narratives concerning love, longing, the power of cinema, and the vestiges of the past within the present. Asking quietly profound questions about the nature of memory—personal, political, and cinematic—this self-refexive yet deeply felt flm keeps regenerating and unfolding in surprising ways.”

Sonoma Film Institute Presents The Death Of Louis XIV

The great Jean-Pierre Léaud, synonymous with French cinema for over half a century, delivers a majestic, career-capping performance as the longest-reigning French monarch during his fnal days. Albert Serra’s elegant, engrossing contemplation on death and its representation fnds the extravagantly wigged Sun King slowly wasting away from gangrene in his bedchamber, surrounded by devoted servants, pets and a retinue of hopeless doctors. Filled with ravishing candlelit images and painstaking details gleaned from Saint-Simon’s memoirs and other historical texts, LOUIS XIV is as darkly funny as it is moving, revealing the absurdity of the rule-bound royal court, but even more so of death itself.
