Eight screenings of first run, international, award-winning independent films on Sunday nights Sun 1/13 Dreams of Dust Burkina Faso, 2006. 86 min. (French w/ English subtitles) Official Selection 2007 Sundance Film Festival. Mocktar, a Nigerien peasant, comes looking for work in Essakane, a dusty gold mine in Northeast Burkina Faso, Africa, where he hopes to forget the past that haunts him. In Essakane he quickly finds out that the gold rush ended twenty years before, and the inhabitants of this wasteland and strange timelessness manage to exist simply from force of habit. The beautiful Coumba, however, is still courageously struggling to raise her daughter after the death of her family. Mocktar will soon be fighting not only to survive, but also to provide a better future for this mother and her child. "…hypnotic widescreen photography…which is well written and directed… Salgues' screenplay is perfectly crafted…"— Variety Sun 1/20 As Far As My Feet Will Carry Me Germany, 2001. 158 min. (German&Russian w/ English subtitles) Prisoner of war Clemens Forell, a German soldier during WWII, is sentenced to a labor camp in far east Siberia. After four years working in the mines he escapes from the camp (in 1949) and tries to get home to his wife and children. For three years he journeys through Siberia. An odyssey of 14,000 kilometers, set against a backdrop of desolate and inhospitable landscape, beset by danger (from both animals and humans). Constantly battling the worst nature can throw at him, Forell makes his way, step by step towards the longed-for freedom. Sometimes riding on trains, sometimes by boat, mostly on foot, he never knows if his next step will be his last. His prosecutor Kamenev is always right behind him, and more than once it seems that Forell will be captured again. Sun 1/27 Her Name Is Sabine France, 2007. 85 min. (French w/ English subtitles)Winner FIPRESCI Award, Cannes Film Festival. An intelligent, moving and beautiful portrait of Sabine, a 38-year-old autistic woman, filmed by her sister, the famous French actress Sandrine Bonnaire. Through personal footage filmed over a period of 25 years, it is revealed that Sabine's growth and many talents were crushed by improper diagnosis and an inadequate care structure. After a tragic five-year stay in a psychiatric hospital, Sabine finally finds a new lease on life in a home together with other young people living with similar mental and emotional illnesses. This very intimate film also sends an urgent message to a society that still does not know how to properly take care of its citizens with physical and psychological disabilities. "Let's say it out loud; Her Name is Sabine is the most beautiful film that Cannes has given us this year." --FIPRESCI (The International Federation of Film Critics) THE NAKED STAGE Tuesdays 7:30 pm Free The Naked Stage is a working collective of performing artists dedicated to the development of theatre on the East End of Long Island.
