Hirschfield Film Series: Certain Women

Hirschfield Film Series: Certain Women
Description:

(Kelly Reichardt, USA, 2016, 1h 47min) Free

3-5 p.m. and 8-10 p.m.

One of America’s foremost filmmakers, Kelly Reichardt (Wendy and Lucy, Meek’s Cutoff) directs a remarkable ensemble cast led by Michelle Williams, Kristen Stewart, and Laura Dern in this stirring look at three women striving to forge their own paths amidst the wide-open plains of the American Northwest: a lawyer (Dern) who finds herself contending with both office sexism and a hostage situation; a wife and mother (Williams) whose determination to build her dream home puts her at odds with the men in her life; and a young law student (Stewart) who forms an ambiguous bond with a lonely ranch hand (radiant newcomer Lily Gladstone). As their stories intersect in subtle but powerful ways, a portrait emerges of flawed, but strong-willed individuals in the process of defining themselves.

It’s easy to describe Kelly Reichardt’s films as “small” compared to Hollywood blockbusters and even some higher-profile indies. She’s more likely to invoke comparisons to legendary way-out-of-the-mainstream filmmakers like Jon Jost or Wim Wenders than she is her generational peers. But Certain Women continues her examination of real people facing situations in almost real time, against the backdrop of real locations and places that both define and confine characters and their actions. Exploring the nuanced moments of these women’s lives, from impossible conversations with difficult men, to awkward pauses where communication fails, to private and unseen actions that are almost miraculously rendered through silence and stillness, Certain Women magnifies Reichardt’s technique as it is echoes from scene to scene, character to character, and story to story. Even when characters can’t seem to speak for themselves, the film’s delicate and thoughtful rendering of these strikingly observed and very human stories manage to speak volumes to viewers in a manner that is unique to one of the cinema’s most disciplined and expressive voices.

Hirschfield Film Series: Aquarius
Description:

In Portuguese with English subtitles.

(Kleber Mendonça Filho, Brazil | France, 2016, 2h 26min) Free

Showing 3-5 p.m and 8-10 p.m.

This Spirit Award Nominee for Best International Film (Brazil) made Cahiers du Cinema's Top 10 Films of 2016 list and director Kleber Mendonça Filho was named one of Variety's 10 Directors to Watch. The film, although not overtly political in subject matter, has become a battle cry for protest against the Brazilian government, after the filmmakers stepped out on the red carpet in Cannes in May, with signs denouncing the movement to impeach the Brazilian president.
