Everything you need to know about the roots of roots music, at least of Country variety: starting with the Original Carter Family—A.P., Sara and Maybelle—the film traces the trio’s early musical success, the transformation of the act into The Carter Sisters, June Carter’s marriage to legend Johnny Cash, and the efforts of the present-day Carter family to keep the music alive. Part history, part performance, part family saga, the film illuminates the Carter’s musical and cultural contributions and features a who’s who of Americana music, including Johnny Cash in one of his last interviews. Opening night show features a live performance by Petunia (of Petunia and the Vipers).
Boccaccio’s Decameron without sex may seem surprising, but desire, delight and the beauty of youth are everywhere here. A tapestry of colour and the supreme natural beauty of the medieval Italian countryside, Paolo and Vittorio Taviani’s resplendent work, set in 1348, features ten young Florentines who hide from the plague in a country villa. To pass the time, they tell stories "that seem to vibrate with erotic passions inflamed by the presence of death."New Yorker
Based on an actual case of a New York musician who was identified as a violent criminal and whose protestations of innocence were never believed, this is the film where Hitchcock’s preoccupation with the fate of an innocent man in the wrong place at the wrong time gets its most severe and soul-searching treatment. A Kafkaesque, expressionist masterpiece, and for all its restraint, one of his most moving films. Starring Henry Fonda, Vera Miles, Anthony Quayle.
