IMAGES OF 1968 IN CINEMA

A WEEKEND OF FILMS ON AN ERA OF REVOLT

PARIS MAY ’68:
FROM THE RIDICULOUS
TO THE SUBLIME

Saturday, October 18 Loyola University Bobet Hall 332

3:30 PM – A GRIN WITHOUT A CAT (Chris Marker, 1977)

’’A Grin Without a Cat is a work of extraordinary journalism, but it is also a work of deft and subtle poetry, visual (in the rhyming of gestures and shapes across images and sequences) as much as verbal.” Dave Kehr, New York Times

5 PM — THE DREAMERS (Bernardo Bertolucci, 2003)

“The film is extraordinarily beautiful. Bertolucci is one of the great painters of the screen. He has a voluptuous way here of bathing his characters in scenes from great movies, and referring to others.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

7 PM — REGULAR LOVERS (Philippe Garrel, 2005)

“this achingly poignant film is a testament to that time as well as somewhat of a memento mori. . . , this magnificent film is itself proof that all was not lost.” Manohla Dargis, New York Times

USA 1968:
DOCUMENTING
AN ERA OF REVOLT

Sunday, October 19
Loyola University
Bobet Hall 332

5 PM — 1968: THE YEAR THAT SHAPED A GENERATION (Stephen Talbot, 1998)

“Far better than any other video chronicling the same year . . . It’s the film that should be seen by every class on the war in Vietnam and on American culture and society.” Rebecca Adler, MC Journal

6 PM — MEDIUM COOL (Haskell Wexler, 1969)

"Medium Cool is finally so important, and absorbing because of the way Wexler weaves all [the] elements together. He has made an almost perfect example of the new movie.” Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

8 PM — CHICAGO 10 (Brett Morgen, 2008)

“Grade-A agitpop, a mixture of archival footage and cheeky, creative animated reconstruction that’s funny and frightening in equal measure. . . . The movie dazzles us into self-examination.” Ty Burr, Boston Globe
