Foreign Fall Film Series
"La Antena" (Argentina)
Thursday, October 5, 2017
[2007, 99 MINUTES, PG; in Spanish with English subtitles]
Join us for a trip around the globe as we present a sampling and behind-the-scenes discussions of some of the best foreign cinema. Provocative and educational, each screening will include an introduction by local film expert Jacob Greenberg, designed to offer a full understanding of the films individually and as part of the Crocker's curated series. By turns funny, surreal, poignant, and experimental, and all rarely presented on the big screen, these four cinematic gems are not to be missed. Members can purchase a "Film Passport" for the series and see all four films for the price of three.
Set in a dystopian future in the spirit of Terry Gilliam’s Brazil, La Antena (“the antenna”) examines the theme of media mind control through powerful film imagery. Deeply imaginative and with references to silent-era films such as Metropolis and A Trip to the Moon, La Antena made a splash when it premiered at the Rotterdam Film Festival, and went on to win several top film awards. Critics called it “a work of curious and unsettling beauty” (Times UK) and “In a word: Unmissable” (Empire Magazine). Don’t miss your chance to see this rarely-screened and deeply original film.
