Film as Film: The Cinema of Gregory Markopoulos at 7:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 9/19 - 10/6
Gregory J. Markopoulos (1928 - 1992) was one of the most original filmmakers to emerge in post-war American cinema. His films, which often translated literary or mythological sources to a contemporary context, are celebrated for their extraordinary creativity, the sensuous use of colour and innovations in cinematic form. This latest instalment of HFA’s on-going retrospective sees the filmmaker at a critical point in his development – the moments of transition between the works that consolidated his reputation in the USA and those made following his move to Europe. It also presents his earliest films from the 1940s, including the trilogy Du sang, de la volupté et de la mort. Commencing with his first 16mm film, Psyche—which took as its source the unfinished novella by Pierre Louÿs—the trilogy is completed by Lysis and Charmides, both inspired by Platonic dialogues.

Ticket Prices: General Admission Tickets $9, $7 Non-Harvard Students, Seniors, Harvard Faculty and Staff. Harvard students free Special event tickets (for in-person appearances) are $12. Tickets go on sale 45 minutes prior to show time. The HFA does not do advance ticket sales.

Marco Bellocchio, the Moral Anarchist at 7:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 9/5 - 9/22
Marco Bellocchio (b. 1939) is one of the most consistent and most adventurous of today’s Italian directors—an achievement all the more remarkable given that he made his feature debut almost fifty years ago. Over those years, he has amassed a body of films that encompasses a large number of original screenplays, adaptations of the likes of Pirandello and Kleist and personal, quasi-autobiographical work. What unifies these films is the beauty and originality of Bellocchio’s images and his unceasing quest to understand the place of the individual in contemporary Italy and contemporary cinema.

Seeing Sound - A Mary Ellen Bute Retrospective at 7:00 PM

Presented by Harvard Film Archive
Harvard Film Archive
Runs: 9/29
A pioneer of visual music and electronic art, Mary Ellen Bute produced over a dozen short abstract animations between the 1930s to the 1950s. Set to classical music by the likes of Bach, Saint-Saens or Shostakovich, and filled with colorful forms, elegant design and sprightly, dance-like-rhythms, Bute's filmmaking is at once formally rigorous and energetically high-spirited, like a marriage of high modernism and Merrie Melodies. In the late 1940s, Lewis Jacobs observed that Bute's films were ‘composed upon mathematical formulae depicting in ever-changing lights and shadows, growing lines and forms, deepening colors and tones, the tumbling, racing impressions evoked by the musical accompaniment.’

Ticket Prices: General Admission Tickets $9, $7 Non-Harvard Students, Seniors, Harvard Faculty and Staff. Harvard students free Special event tickets (for in-person appearances) are $12. Tickets go on sale 45 minutes prior to show time. The HFA does not do advance ticket sales.

IN EXTREMIS: ON POETRY, SUBVERSION & VIOLENCE: Stephen Burt, Johannes Goransson & Joyelle McSweeney at 6:00 PM

Presented by Woodberry Poetry Room
Woodberry poetry Room Lamont
Runs: 10/1
In this dynamic conversation (interspersed with readings), three poets, critics and editors ask: What does contemporary poetry gain--and what does it lose---by seeking its own extremes, or trying to violate its own bounds? What are the connections---or contradictions--- between the way we imagine innovation, and the way we imagine violence? When do we want new poets to sound or look or be revolutionary, or subversive, or aggressive, and when do we want something else?
