This month, we’re showing three great films on the big screen in our program room! First up on Saturday, July 13th at 1:30 PM, we’ll be screening Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two in 4K Ultra High-Definition. Based on Frank Herbert’s classic novel, the film explores the mythic journey of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) as he unites with Chani (Zendaya) and the Fremen while on a path of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family. Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.

 

The New York Times raved: “The art of cinematic spectacle is alive and rocking in Dune: Part Two, and it’s a blast.” The movie is rated PG-13, and runs 2 hours & 45 minutes. It will be screened in English and Chakobsa, with English subtitles for the hard of hearing.

Next, on Tuesday July 23rd at 6:30 PM, we’ll be screening 20 Days in Mariupol. This award-winning film was shot by the last international journalists inside the Russian siege of Mariupol. It is an extraordinary account seen through the lens of the Associated Press’s Mstyslav Chernov and two colleagues documenting the atrocities and their own escape.

20 Days in Mariupol won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s Academy Awards. It also won the Best Documentary Award at this year’s British Academy of Film & Television Awards, and was named one of the Top 5 Documentaries of 2023 by the National Board of Review.

This film is rated TV-MA, and runs 1 hour & 35 minutes. It will be screened in Ukrainian and Russian with English subtitles.

On Thursday July 25th at 2 PM, we’ll be screening Wim Wenders’ Perfect Days. In this film, Hirayama (Kōji Yakusho) is content with his life as a toilet cleaner in Tokyo. He has a daily routine starting with work and ending with books and music, with some lunchtime amateur photography of the same trees every day. But when his estranged sister’s daughter Niko (Arisa Nakano) comes by and stays for a few days, the disruption of that routine reminds Hirayama of a past he wants to leave behind and why he has this routine in the first place.

Perfect Days was nominated for Best International Feature Film at this year’s Oscars, and for the Palme d’Or at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival. Star Kōji Yakusho also won the Best Actor Prize at Cannes, as well as at the Asian Film Awards, and the Japan Academy Film Prizes.

This film is rated PG, and runs 2 hours & 5 minutes. It will be screened in Japanese with English subtitles.

All three screenings are free and open to the public, with no registration required.  Free popcorn will be served for each screening (while supplies last). Doors open 30 minutes before each showtime.
