Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Memoir of War

Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Memoir of War

“Emmanuel Finkiel's haunting and hypnotic adaptation of seminal author Marguerite Duras’ autobiographical novel The War: A Memoir. In 1944 Nazi-occupied France, Marguerite Duras (Mélanie Thierry) is an active Resistance member along with her husband Robert Antelme. When he is deported to Dachau by the Gestapo, she dives into a desperate struggle to get him back, and enters into a high-risk game of psychological cat and mouse with French Nazi collaborator Rabier (Benoît Magimel). But as the months wear on without word of the man she loves, Marguerite must begin the process of confronting the unimaginable. Through subtly expressionistic images and voiceover passages of Duras’s writing, Finkiel evokes the inner world of one of the 20th century’s most revolutionary writers.” – Film Forum (2017, 127 min., in French w/English subtitles) Free Admission

Wreck-It Ralph and Vanellope Van Schweetz have been best friends since their misadventures six years prior, hanging out every night after work in Litwak's Family Fun Center and Arcade.

The next day, Ralph attempts to fulfill her desires by creating a secret bonus track during a race. Vanellope overrides player control to test it out, but the resulting conflict between her and the player results with the cabinet's steering wheel being broken. Since the company that made Sugar Rush is defunct, one of the kids finds a replacement for Mr. Litwak on eBay. Litwak finds it too expensive and has no choice but to unplug Sugar Rush, leaving the game's characters homeless..

Gaming Race: Detroit: Become Human

Detroit: Become Human represent another installment in pop culture’s obsession with androids. In this game, crafted by developer Quantic Dream, gamers are introduced to a futuristic Detroit revitalized by the introduction of androids that exist only to serve mankind. We play as three different android characters and our decision determine what Detroit’s future will be.

Interestingly, in a game that relies heavily on tropes of enslavement to spin it’s narrative, topics of race and racialization rarely arise, if ever. For this installment of the Gaming Race series, , we’ll discuss why it’s important to discuss American enslavement, why and how race still matters when pop culture turns to stories involving androids, and how Quantic Dream’s design of games like Detroit and Heavy Rain, don’t give us as much freedom to determine story outcomes as we think.

Sonoma Film Institute presents, The Wild Pear Tree

“Palme d’Or winner Nuri Bilge Ceylan’s THE WILD PEAR TREE is an achingly beautiful portrait of an ambitious young writer returning home after college. Hoping to enjoy momentary solace in the company of nature’s calming indifference and with parents whose lives are already settled, Sinan finds only guilt in confrontations with the too-early failures of his past acquaintances and a loaded sense of responsibility toward his father’s worsening gambling addiction. This need to see his life as separate from those he left behind incites a rich and sprawling metanarrative on the self-centeredness essential to pursuing a life of creativity. At once languid and rhapsodic, THE WILD PEAR TREE is a profound and poetic look at youth misspent grasping at a maturity that, once attained, is revealed as the ultimate disappointment.” – Malin Kan, AFI Film Festival (2018, 188 min., in Turkish w/English subtitles) Free Admission

Blindspotting

Blindspotting

Collin (Daveed Diggs) must make it through his final three days of probation for a chance at a new beginning. He and his troublemaking childhood best friend, Miles (Rafael Casal), work as movers and are forced to watch their old neighborhood become a trendy spot in the rapidly gentrifying Bay Area. When a life-altering event causes Collin to miss his mandatory curfew, the two men struggle to maintain their friendship as the changing social landscape exposes their differences. Lifelong friends Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal co-wrote and star in this timely and wildly entertaining story about friendship and the intersection of race and class set against the backdrop of Oakland. Bursting with energy, style and humor, Blindspotting, boldly directed by Carlos López Estrada in his feature film debut, is a provocative hometown love letter that glistens with humanity.

Sonoma Film Institute Presents, Walkabout

Roeg's 1971 coming-of-age fable is set in the Australian Outback, where a 14-year-old city girl (Jenny Agutter) and her six-year-old brother (Roeg's son Luc) find themselves stranded when their father suddenly abandons them. Lost in the wilderness, they encounter an Aboriginal youth (the amazing David Gulpilil, in his first screen appearance) who is performing the ritual solo wandering that will mark his entrance into manhood. Roeg uses hallucinatory editing to provocatively contrast the modern world with the natural realm, while Agutter and Gulpilil both astonish with their mesmerizing, completely unguarded performances.

Sonoma Bach – Guest Recital, The Bright Field

BachGrounder pre-concert talk at 2:25pm.

The a-cappella ensemble Clerestory takes its name from the high windows through which light pours into a church. We are delighted to present this wonderful Bay Area group in a concert featuring early and modern works inspired, through a process known as ekphrasis, by works of art. Clerestory “distinctive voices blending in a gorgeous sound” (San Francisco Classical Voice) perform compositions—by such composers as John Sheppard, Arvo Pärt and Eric Whitacre—which respond through poetry and music to artworks by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Gerhard Richter and many others. These ancient and modern ‘commentaries’ shine a special light upon art both familiar and brand-new.
