Directed by Chantal Akerman | 1975

With Delphine Seyrig, Jan Decorte, Henri Storck

Three days in the life of a Belgian single mother: in near-real time, we watch as the title character peels potatoes, runs errands, and entertains the occasional gentleman caller—all leading up to one of cinema’s most startling denouements.

Vox Lux

July 24, 2019 7:30pm

Directed by Brady Corbet | 2018

With Natalie Portman, Jude Law, Raffey Cassidy

Glitter-spritzed spectacle and 21st-century trauma collide in this audacious art-pop musical. Both a provocative dissection of celebrity culture and a delirious sensory explosion, Vox Luxtraces the meteoric rise, fall, and attempted comeback of a pop superstar (an electrifying Natalie Portman) whose life is framed by twin tragedies. The operatic delirium is heightened by a soundtrack featuring original songs by Sia and a score by the late avant-garde icon Scott Walker.

Cha Wa

July 25, 2019 12:00pm

“a grand gumbo of singing, intoxicating rhythms, and deep funk grooves that are impossible to resist”
—Popmatters

The spirit of New Orleans comes to MetroTech with the infectious funk sounds and elaborate costumes of Cha Wa. This Grammy-nominated brass band honors the legendary Mardi Gras Indians while building off their vibrant cultural roots, bridging the gap between NOLA street culture and modern R&B. “The term 'Cha Wa' basically means 'We're coming for you',” said drummer Joe Gelini. “It’s a Mardi Gras Indian chant […] It’s sort of our rallying cry; it’s how we get our heads in the game on stage, like weapons blazing."

Elephant

July 25, 2019 5:00pm, 9:30pm

Directed by Gus Van Sant | 2003

With Alex Frost, Eric Deulen, John Robinson

Unfolding in a series of hypnotic tracking shots, Gus Van Sant’s haunting, Palme d’Or-winning meditation on the 1999 Columbine massacre immerses the viewer in the day-to-day of an ordinary high school in the lead-up to unimaginable horror. That it forgoes psychologizing and easy answers in favor of a coolly detached, open-ended approach makes this mysterious, mesmerizing American tragedy all the more chilling.

Nocturama

July 25-26, 2019 7:00pm

Directed by Bertrand Bonello | 2016

With Finnegan Oldfield, Vincent Rottiers, Hamza Meziani

The kids are decidedly not alright in Bertrand Bonello’s bold, stylized terrorist thriller, in which a band of disaffected millennials carry out an elaborate, seemingly unmotivated attack on Paris, then hide out amid the consumerist pleasures of a luxury shopping mall. Combining pulse-quickening suspense with outré set pieces—including a memorable musical number set to “My Way”—Nocturama is a daring and unsettling vision of youth in revolt.

The quintessential mid-2000s teen movie, Mean Girls takes a razor-sharp view of the jockeying for power and competing cliques that define the high school experience, as Lohan’s fresh-from-Africa new girl finds herself navigating the strange social rituals of suburban America.

Carnegie Hall Citywide: Cha Wa

July 26, 2019 6:00pm

Cha Wa’s high-voltage music fuses fat, funky beats with New Orleans–style brass and Mardi Gras Indian spectacle. Lead singer J’Wan Boudreaux’s gritty vocals are steeped in the Crescent City’s legendary Mardi Gras tradition, where African American men march in Native American dress, inspiring a vibrant street music. While Cha Wa honors the tradition with pulse-quickening and foot-stomping rhythms, it also adds a socially conscious element with songs that address injustice. Move to the band’s intoxicating groove and imagine yourself as part of a jubilant New Orleans second-line parade.

Beyond the Canon: 3 by Maya Deren + Mulholland Drive

July 28, 2019 2:00pm

3 by Maya Deren
Dir. Maya Deren

Ritual in Transfigured Time
1946, 15min, 16mm

At Land
1944, 15min, 16mm

Meshes of the Afternoon
1943, 14min, 16mm

Maya Deren, the godmother of the American avant-garde, created trance-state explorations of consciousness, movement, the body, and nature rooted in the dream logic of surrealism and awash in unforgettably uncanny images. From the time-and space-collapsing psychodrama of her forever influential debut Meshes of the Afternoon to the mesmerizing dance film Ritual in Transfigured Time, these profoundly personal landmarks of experimental film showed that cinema could be a direct conduit to the unconscious mind.

Mulholland Drive
Dir. David Lynch
With Naomi Watts, Laura Harring, Justin Theroux
2001, 147min, DCP

Naomi Watts’ eager aspiring actress arrives in LA with stars in her eyes, but soon finds herself sucked into the nightmarish underbelly of the Hollyweird Dream Factory as she becomes entangled with an amnesiac femme fatale. Hitchcockian doubles, illusory identities, and surreal slips into the dark and disturbing abound in David Lynch’s neo-noir freak-out.

July 28, 2019 6:00pm

Directed by Kenneth Lonergan | 2011

With Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo

Kenneth Lonergan’s sleeper hit languished in post-production limbo for six years before becoming the cinephile cause célèbre of 2011 thanks to its novelistic density, riveting emotional intensity, and harrowing excavation of post-9/11 trauma. In a searing performance, Anna Paquin stars as a cosseted Manhattan high school student plunged into a whirlpool of torment and rage following her incidental role in a fatal bus accident.
