Ranging from ultra-famous films (Chunking Express, exceptionally shown in its 35 mm. splendor) to rare and hard-to-find little gems (Largo Viaje and Singapore Gaga); from Ruttmann’s mythical city symphony that initiated a whole genre to Linklater’s just as mythical tribute to Austin (and generation X), this Thursday evening film series wishes to reach all the cinephiles in the Wellesley College community and beyond, joining them in a common celebration of urban films.
