Part of Alain Resnais
Friday, February 25, 2011, 7:30 p.m.

Imported 35mm print

Dir. Alain Resnais. 1959, 90 mins.

Written by Marguerite Duras. With Emmanuelle Riva, Eiji Okada. A French actress and Japanese architect meet in Hiroshima; their passionate affair is haunted by personal and historical memories. Jean-Luc Godard wrote of this modernist masterpiece, which is at once sensuous and rigorously cerebral, that “seeing Hiroshima gives you the impression of watching a film that would have been absolutely inconceivable in terms of what you already know of cinema.” 

Tickets to Friday evening screenings are $10 ($7.50 for students and senior citizens).
