After You (Damien O'Connor)

IFI & SET

Welcome to the IFI’s June programme as we conclude our EU Presidency events in Europe and offer Irish audiences the unique opportunity to see some classics in 70mm.

JUNE AT THE IFI

Willy Reilly and His Colleen Bawn is a remarkable historical epic and one of the few surviving features from the silent era. Preserved at the IFI Irish Film Archive, it tells the story of Willy Reilly, a Catholic gentleman in love with the daughter of the local Protestant squire, and was directed by John MacDonagh, brother of the executed 1916 leader Thomas MacDonagh. This summer, the film will be presented by the IFI in Berlin, Paris and Madrid as the concluding part of our International Culture Programme to celebrate Ireland's Presidency of the European Union, with a magnificent new score composed and conducted by Bernard Reilly, and performed live by the Irish CinéTheatre Ensemble. This international tour is supported by Culture Ireland. We are also delighted to offer Dublin audiences a unique opportunity to attend a pre-tour, open dress rehearsal on June 5th at the IFI, and the screening will be introduced by the composer Bernard Reilly. Meanwhile, IFI National’s EU Presidency programme of short films exploring impressions of Ireland and Europe in collections at the IFI Irish Film Archive continues to tour nationwide so please visit www.ifi.ie/nationaleu for details of the programme and a list of locations. This programme is supported by the Arts Council Local Partnership Scheme as part of Culture Connects, the EU Presidency Culture Programme.

EXHIBIT PRESERVE EDUCATE

The Irish Film Institute is Ireland’s national cultural institution for film. It aims to exhibit the finest in independent, Irish and international cinema, preserve Ireland’s moving image heritage at the IFI Irish Film Archive, and encourage engagement with film through its various educational programmes.

Whenever the IFI shows a film on 70mm, audiences flock to it from far and wide. The IFI is the only venue in Ireland with the projection capability to present film on this wonderful and rare format. This month we celebrate this unique aspect of the IFI with a season of four classics back on the big screen in 70mm: Alien, The Deer Hunter, Ryan’s Daughter and Big Trouble in Little China. It also marks the beginning of a new, ongoing programming strand at the IFI, whereby we will now have bi-monthly screenings of 70mm films. There are also plenty of great new releases this month including Claude Miller’s final film, Thérèse Desqueyroux, starring the wonderful Audrey Tautou in a captivating adaptation of the François Mauriac novel; Abbas Kiarostami’s Like Someone in Love, one of the hits of Cannes 2012 and showing exclusively at the IFI; and Joss Whedon’s adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing which was shot inside his own Hollywood home. Many people are also hugely excited by the prospect of the third instalment in the lives of Jess (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) in Before Midnight which opens on June 21st, and if you were unlucky enough to miss out on Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, we’re giving you the chance to finally watch them in advance of the release of this latest chapter. Ross Keane Director

In collaboration with the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland, the IFI is pleased to once again celebrate Irish animation talent with a night of short films made by some of our finest animators on June 11th at 18.30. Jason Tammemagi will present a selection of Irish animation shorts for what audiences can expect to be a fun and vibrant showcase of home-grown talent. 3

EVERYBODY HAS A PLAN JUNE 1ST – 6TH (TODOS TENEMOS UN PLAN) FILM INFO:

118 minutes, Argentina, 2012, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Kevin Coyne

Viggo Mortensen stars in Ana Piterbarg’s directorial debut as twin brothers Agustín and Pedro. Agustín is a successful doctor, married to the attractive Claudia (Soledad Villamil, The Secret in their Eyes), and ultimately frustrated with his life. Pedro, on the other hand, is a beekeeper with a sideline in kidnapping. When the latter announces his terminal illness, Agustín sees an opportunity to assume his identity and start afresh, which he grasps immediately. Stepping into his

brother’s shoes however, is not without complications, most notably in the form of his young assistant, Rosa (Sofía Gala, Tetro), and shady childhood friend Adrián (Daniel Fanego). At heart a crime thriller, the film gives the ever-reliable Mortensen an opportunity to shine, creating distinctive and complex characters in the dual role. Neophyte Piterbarg shows an admirable restraint, allowing the plot to unfold at its own pace.

The brilliant Olivier Assayas surveyed the 1970s radical terrorist landscape in his epic Carlos, now he revisits his own back pages in 1971 Paris, reconciling raging hormones, post-‘68 ideological ferment and the nascent stirrings of creativity. It’s a fascinating fresco, with a generous ensemble feel, which never uses hindsight to mock its youthful idealists debating their solidarity with the proletariat. Instead there’s a kind of nostalgia for a culture where ideas were taken so seriously, even if they

Two hundred years old and never been kissed – growing up is hard to do when you’re one of the undead and your mother keeps moving from town to town lest the family’s dark secret be discovered. Remarkably, Neil Jordan’s latest offering finds a fresh take on blood-drinking mythology, as troubled daughter Saoirse Ronan recounts her tale in a concerted effort to make sense of her life, while Gemma Arterton uses her mercilessly voluptuous wiles to play maternal protector. With the film’s

seedy contemporary seaside setting, its love of the Gothic and time-spanning storytelling, screenwriter Moira Buffini proves right at home in quintessential Neil Jordan territory. Starting with a very Irish slant on vampire legend, this certainly has its narrative foibles, yet ultimately balances bloody mayhem with a palpable, poetic depth of yearning. Good to see Jordan going for the jugular again.

pointed towards worryingly violent resolutions, and presented doctrinaire restrictions on the development of a personal aesthetic. Shot with the kind of insouciant grace most filmmakers can barely dream of, this is haunting, immersive and impassioned, its moments of visceral threat and casual sensuality intensified by a truly choice soundtrack, including Nick Drake, The Soft Machine, The Incredible String Band and Kevin Ayers.

IFI and Alliance Française member ticket price €7 (please request at the IFI Box Office).

The year is 1959, and for an ordinary girl from the provinces, landing a secretarial job in super-chic Paris is the height of ambition. Gamine-yet-clumsy Rose (Déborah François) however, has something other hopefuls don’t – blazing typing skills! Enter dishy businessman Louis (Romain Duris) who realises her particular gifts are less suited to office duties than the national speed typing championships. A severe training régime is in order, but are troublesome emotions going

to impede their professional tilt at fleet-fingered glory? The just-so costumes and delightfully immersive period detail – where did they get all those vintage typewriters? – are a huge source of pleasure in this very cute Gallic combination of sports movie and romance. There’s a dab of social comment, but essentially it’s a lighthearted charmer, deliciously played by François and Duris relishing the chance to kick back and relax. 7

106 minutes, U.S.A., 2012, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Trevor Johnston

Oscar-nominated as the troubled soul whose bitter truths rocked Revolutionary Road, powerhouse actor Michael Shannon enhanced his reputation in the ominous fable Take Shelter, and is surely bound for iconic status providing he gets the right roles. His wide-eyed intensity and looming height make him suitably scary as notorious contract killer Richard Kuklinski in this true-life crime-drama, where he compellingly incarnates a walking index of moral contradictions

– a loving family man who kept his dark side secret from his wife and daughters. And we are talking dark, given the sobering body count hinted at by writer-director’s Ariel Vromen’s grisly chronicle. While the film hardly eclipses Scorsese’s mafiosi sagas, it does boast the evergreen Ray Liotta as a permanently edgy crimelord, though Shannon certainly takes the spotlight. When he gets that look, you don’t want to be in his bad books.

Audrey Tautou shows what a great actress she’s become with a quite mesmerising take on novelist François Mauriac’s confounding anti-heroine in this atmospheric adaptation, the final film from much-admired director Claude Miller (The Little Thief, A Secret). Born into old stock in the Landes region, Thérèse is destined to marry Gilles Lellouche’s Bernard, amiable but conventional scion of neighbouring landowners.

120 minutes, Austria-GermanyFrance, 2012, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Trevor Johnston

As 2007’s ferocious Import/Export demonstrated, Austrian maverick Ulrich Seidl has no fear of making the viewer uncomfortable in the course of exposing a wider truth. This first entry in a completed trilogy (Faith and Hope will follow in July and August) offers an examination of sex-tourism in Kenya which isn’t shy about revealing flesh, but ultimately ponders the yearnings of the soul. Teresa (incredibly brave Margarete Tiesel) is a 50-somethingyear-old Austrian single mum whose

middle-age spread has left her feeling less than desirable, something no longer an issue at an East African beach resort where nubile young black men crowd the wealthy European visitors. Fantasies of romance, rooted in murky cultural history, soon give way to a series of deceptive transactions bringing out the worst in both sides as Seidel’s trademark blend of documentary grunge and authored image-making ventures into the heart of darkness.

of such fiercely independent mind, and Thérèse’s subsequent behaviour towards her husband and her bosompal sister-in-law (Anaïs Demoustier) will both scandalise polite society and put compassionate understanding to the test. Miller’s take on the story delivers a more conventional time-line than the original book, yet the linear approach keeps us effectively ensnared in Tautou’s dark spell, fascinated by a woman who’s both class insurgent and in thrall to implacable inner demons.

During a production break on Avengers Assemble, Joss Whedon gathered his favourite actors and shot this Shakespeare adaptation inside a fortnight in his own Hollywood home. What sounds like a vanity project however, has turned out to be a real treat for Shakespeare lovers and Whedon’s own fan-base alike, delivering a witty, affectionate, and utterly convincing modern-dress version of the frisky comedy last seen on celluloid in Kenneth Branagh’s traditional 1993

incarnation. Yes, there are smartphones and cop-movie references, yet instead of flaunted gimmickry, what comes across most strongly here is real enjoyment in delivering the text, allied to Whedon’s facility for whipping up an infectious team spirit in his ensemble cast. Amy Acker and Alexis Denisof shine as the central couple Beatrice and Benedict, spikily striving not to fall in love, while Serenity star Nathan Fillion goofs amiably as bumbling watchman Dogberry. 9

SHUN LI AND THE POET

BEFORE MIDNIGHT FROM JUNE 21ST FILM INFO:

108 minutes, U.S.A., 2013, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Kevin Coyne

We’re pleased to screen the first two films in this trilogy – Before Sunrise on June 1st (14.00) & 5th (19.00) and Before Sunset on June 4th (18.30) & 8th (18.30).

Following their first encounter in Vienna in 1995’s Before Sunrise, and their subsequent meeting in Paris in 2004’s Before Sunset, we join Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) in Greece as they once again spend time together discussing life and love. Much has changed in the years since the last instalment, most notably that they are now a couple, parents to twins. However, there are difficulties; Jesse wants to return to Chicago to be nearer to his son from his first marriage, while

Céline is at a career crossroads. As with the first two chapters, Before Midnight consists almost entirely of these two people simply talking to each other. However, the dialogue is so beautifully crafted, so funny, honest, and realistic that the film is incredibly engaging, and a fitting close to one of cinema’s finest portrayals of a relationship.

After the teasing conundrums of the Tuscan-set Certified Copy, Iranian master Abbas Kiarostami confounds expectations again with this Japanese drama of mistaken identity – which nods towards Ozu’s classic Tokyo Story but takes its title from an American jazz standard. ‘Like’ is the key word here, since the protagonist is a young woman who appears a regular student/ grand-daughter/girlfriend depending on the circumstances, but is actually moonlighting as a call girl, where one of

A sense of belonging is at stake for the two different exiles at the heart of this immersive first dramatic feature from noted Italian documentarist Andrea Segre. Illegal Chinese immigrant Shun Li (Zhao Tao, the muse of Chinese auteur Jia Zhang-ke) is working bar jobs to pay off her debt to the traffickers who smuggled her into Italy. One of her regulars, an elderly fisherman (Rade Sherbedgia, a Croatian who’s played a few Hollywood heavies in his time), makes up his own rhymes and isn’t

really a ‘poet’ per se, but does yearn for the Yugoslavia he fled years ago. Friendship and acceptance play off against greed and intolerance as their developing bond takes its course, subtly rendered in a film which captures the misty allure of the Veneto lagoon, and is exquisitely scored by ECM artist François Couturier.

RENOIR her clients is, outwardly, a distinguished professor and widower, but obviously with secrets to hide. As these characters’ individual deceptions gather critical mass, Kiarostami mounts the action with breathtakingly economical finesse, never telling us quite what to think, yet suggesting throughout that we ponder how our true selves exist in relation to an everyday cross-weave of social assumptions. Playful, exotic, and wise, as only Kiarostami knows how.

FROM JUNE 28TH FILM INFO:

111 minutes, France, 2012, Subtitled, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Trevor Johnston

The twilight years of one grand master and the dawning of a new generation’s creativity sustain Gilles Bourdos’ engrossing biographical portrait of impressionist artist Pierre-Auguste Renoir and his son Jean. It’s 1915, and the 70-something-year-old widower is battling arthritis to get his thoughts on canvas, captivated by his latest teenage muse. Another arrival at the Riviera mansion is Jean, recovering from wounds received as a French WWI combatant, unaware of the

catalyst these moments will have on his cinematic future. What’s lovely about the film is its refusal to force events into melodramatic contrivance, wise enough instead to let Michel Bouquet and Vincent Rottiers convincingly inhabit their roles as père et fils, and Christa Theret’s local lass to bewitch them and us. Moreover, for a film about the inspiration of sun-dappled light and rosy flesh, it absolutely looks the part. 11


JUNE 2013 NEW RELEASES

FILM INFO:

109 minutes, Canada, 2012, Colour, D-Cinema Notes by Trevor Johnston

Actress-turned-director Sarah Polley (Away From Her, Take This Waltz) picks her way through a potential minefield in this deftly mounted documentary, exploring her family’s tangled history via personal emotional catharsis and an intelligent examination of just who owns the past. The saga starts with an in-house joke about how she looks unlike her siblings and pretty much cartwheels from there, sustained by often bracingly revealing interviews and much evocative ‘70s home-movie

FILM HIGHLIGHTS IN JULY Renowned for his distinctive brand of bleak comedy – as established in The Squid and the Whale and Greenberg – director Noah Baumbach teams up for a second time with actress Greta Gerwig for his new film, Frances Ha, for which the pair wrote the script together. Stylishly shot in black and white, the film affectionately traces the steps of 27-year-old Frances as she struggles to find her feet as a dancer living in New York, often to spectacular and comic effect. 12

footage. However, we also see her father, former actor Michael Polley, delivering his own written narration, flagging up the whole issue of just whose agenda is being represented – something increasingly loaded the more we know about traumatic previous events. The end result is quite remarkable however, as Polley’s film balances soulful intimacy with a hard-won realisation of the granular instability of truth. You’ll be talking about it for weeks afterwards.

70MM: THE BIG PICTURE

Blancanieves

FROM JUNE 28TH

Based on the story of Snow White and set in an imagined vision of 1920s Spain, Pablo Berger’s beautifully shot silent film Blancanieves won ten Goya Awards including the Prize for Best Film last year. Also screening next month is Hitchcock’s masterpiece Dial M for Murder in 3D which draws our complete retrospective of the director’s work to a close.

STORIES WE TELL

The increasing pervasiveness of digital projection has led to a correlative decrease in the number of cinemas still capable of showing film. There are few cinemas in Dublin that show the previous industry standard of 35mm with any regularity, of whom the IFI remains the format’s greatest champion. Over the coming months, there are plans to reaffirm our commitment to celluloid by incorporating more screenings from 16mm and by celebrating the fact that the IFI is the only cinema in Ireland capable of showing film on 70mm, beginning with this short season. Never particularly commonly used by filmmakers, principally due to its cost, the technical merits of the format essentially boil down to an image of greater size and clarity, and sound quality which still rivals anything digital has to offer. Since installation of 70mm projectors in the IFI in 2001, a number of films have been shown: Vertigo; Baraka; 2001: A Space Odyssey; Die Hard; and The Thing, to name but a few, and we are always on the lookout for news of additional titles, as the pool of available prints, particularly those shot on 65mm rather than being 35mm blow-ups, grows smaller. Over the coming months, there will be regular screenings of 70mm films, and for those of you who asked – we’re still working on The Master. Tickets for all 70mm screenings: €12 13

RYAN’S DAUGHTER JUNE 4TH (18.30) & JUNE 9TH (14.30) FILM INFO:

206 minutes, U.K., 1970, Colour, 70mm (with Swedish subtitles) Notes by Alice Butler

Shot on 65mm by renowned cinematographer Freddie Young, who also worked with David Lean on Lawrence of Arabia and Doctor Zhivago, Ryan’s Daughter is arguably the most visually impressive film ever made in Ireland. In keeping with his distinctive epic scale, the production was long and drawn out while Lean waited for perfect weather conditions for his many and spectacular outdoor scenes, leading

BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA actor Robert Mitchum to comment that working with the director was “like constructing the Taj Mahal out of toothpicks.” Despite this, and along with the cool critical reception that the film received upon its release, it has since been recognised as a modern classic replete with spectacular footage of the beaches along the Dingle Peninsula, the breadth of which can only be fully appreciated on the big screen.

FILM INFO:

99 minutes, U.S.A., 1986, Colour, 70mm Notes by Kevin Coyne

Following Elvis (1979), Escape from New York (1981), and The Thing (1982), director John Carpenter and star Kurt Russell collaborated once again on the massively entertaining Big Trouble in Little China, a tonguein-cheek martial arts film that has gained a healthy cult following since its original release. Russell is truck driver Jack Burton, a man with a big heart but a small intellect. When a friend’s fiancée is kidnapped by

the Lords of Death, a Chinese street gang, Burton attempts to help, leading him and his companions (including Kim Cattrall) into a secret world of magic and sorcery as they strive to rescue the victim from the clutches of the evil Lo Pan (James Hing). The dialogue crackles but the film belongs to the hilarious Russell, playing, in Carpenter’s words, “a sidekick who thinks he’s a leading man.”

THE DEER HUNTER

ALIEN JUNE 11TH (18.30) & JUNE 16TH (18.30)

JUNE 18TH (18.30) & JUNE 22ND (16.10)

The film that launched director Ridley Scott’s international career, as well as that of actress Sigourney Weaver with her iconic portrayal of Officer Ripley, also spawned the predatory xenomorph of its title, a sinuous sci-fi creature like no other, designed by Swiss surrealist H.R. Giger who deservedly won the Visual Effects Academy Award for his contribution to the film. Based on figures from Giger’s own original lithographs, the Alien and

its accompanying features reflected the artist’s over-arching interest in depicting biomechanical forms, an element integral to the film’s themes and plot. While the womb-like setting evokes stagnation and claustrophobia, a soundtrack made up of industrial wails and groans builds the necessary tension around each of the seven crewmembers’ alien encounters. One of the greatest films of its genre.

JUNE 26TH (19.30) & JUNE 29TH (15.10) FILM INFO:

182 minutes, U.K.-U.S.A., 1978, Colour, 70mm Notes by Kevin Coyne

After his debut feature, Thunderbolt and Lightfoot (1974), director Michael Cimino created something on a grander scale with this tale of three Pennsylvania steelworkers who serve in the Vietnam War – Michael (Robert De Niro), Steven (John Savage), and Nick (Christopher Walken). The tripartite structure begins with Steven’s wedding shortly before the three ship out. Moving to the battlefield, the next section

finds the three held as prisoners of war, forced to play Russian roulette for the amusement of their captors before escaping and then losing each other along the way. Finally, Michael, now home, tracks down his friends and discovers the terrible aftermath of their experiences. The epic film’s success would prove Cimino’s undoing when tried to repeat its scale in 1980’s Heaven’s Gate, which will be reissued in August. 15

This month, we’re delighted to screen an adaptation of the much-loved German classic about young Emil and his gang of sleuthing friends. Emil lives with his father in former East Germany but when an accident puts his father out of action, Emil is sent to Berlin to live with his teacher’s sister. On the way, he is robbed on the train and, determined to track the thief down, he gets help from an eager bunch of young Berliners.

manages to get great comic timing from Streep as the put upon Kay who, blushing and skittish, hopes that a week-long residential relationship counselling course will succeed in taking accountant husband Arnold away from the Golf Channel and into her arms. Steve Carrell plays straight as the therapist who endeavours to bridge the communication gap between the longsuffering pair. While the characterisation and plot occasionally veers on the stereotypical, the chemistry between the two leads makes it all highly watchable.

In collaboration with the National Lesbian and Gay Federation on the occasion of Dublin Pride 2013, the IFI is delighted to present two powerful new documentaries.

WHERE I AM In this new Irish documentary, gay American writer Robert Drake returns to the small town of Sligo from his home in Philadelphia, in an attempt to revisit the memories of his time in Ireland. Twelve years have passed since he was the victim of a violent and bloody attack by two local men there which left him permanently brain-damaged, wheel-chair bound and unable to continue his burgeoning writing career. Accompanied by his sanguine carer, Butch, he meets Colm Tóibín, Dermot Healy and those who cared for him after the attack, and compares life now with life before the brutal event. This is a heart-breaking but ultimately up-lifting tale of forgiveness and redemption. Director Pamela Drynan will be present at the screening.

DIRECTOR: Pamela Drynan FILM INFO: 69 minutes, 2013, Colour, D-Cinema

BEYOND GAY: THE POLITICS OF PRIDE The film follows Ken Coolen, Director of the Vancouver Pride Parade, as he travels the world in the 9 months prior to his own event visiting other countries’ parades. Visits include New York, birthplace of the modern gay rights movement; São Paulo, site of the world’s largest parade; Poland, where the parade is heckled by those who find homosexuality offensive on religious grounds; and Moscow, where the Pride movement is illegal and the parade must be planned in secret for fear of violent reprisals. It’s a fascinating portrait of the movement’s achievements and a reminder of the work yet to be done.

JUNE 19TH (18.30) DIRECTOR: FILM INFO:

96 minutes, U.S.A., 1989, Colour, Blu-ray

As the setting for When Harry Met Sally’s most memorable scene, Katz’s bustling Manhattan Delicatessen – where a willful Meg Ryan unabashedly brings her argument with Billy Crystal to a successful conclusion – makes for a perfect backdrop, and the eatery has been drawing fans of the film ever since, all eager to savour an ‘authentic’

illustrious novel. Shot on location in Dublin and featuring Milo O’Shea as Leopold Bloom, the film was entered into the 1967 Cannes Film Festival only to be withdrawn by Strick when he noticed subtitles for some of the more provocative scenes had been deleted without his permission. This unique interactive event, organised by At it Again! in collaboration with the Irish Film Institute, presents an evening peppered with party pieces and prizes for the best dressed. So put on your Bloomsday finest for a night that will bring to life the magic of Ulysses. Props for the screening will be supplied from the Bloomsday Survival Kit.

of which – The Midnight Party, The Children’s Party and Cotillion – feature here. These films often explore themes of childhood memories, dreams and fantasy. In their first film, Memories of an Unbeaten Childhood, Benassi and Ziz create a world as seen through the eyes of a young adolescent boy. Sitting by a river he examines bacteria living in the water, revealing a phantasmagoria of found and archive footage depicting the conditions of life and the world. Arc Arial is a pynchonesque meditation on cinema, politics, and the eye in the sky.

New York dining experience. Plenty of the pair’s other key exchanges also take place over traditional diner-style food, the vast majority of which Ryan pedantically orders ‘on the side’. Director Rob Reiner’s film – this month’s choice for Feast Your Eyes – features career-best performances from Crystal and Ryan both of whom are elevated by Nora Ephron’s Oscar-nominated script as well as a brilliant supporting cast led by an urbane Carrie Fisher who plays Sally’s exceptionally candid and resourceful best friend. The screening will be followed by a meal inspired by the film in the IFI Café Bar. Tickets €20 (free list suspended).

FILM INFO:

Daldry (The Hours, The Reader), Helen Mirren takes up the role of Queen Elizabeth II once again, following her Oscar-winning performance in Stephen Frears’ 2006 film depiction of how the monarch handled Princess Diana’s death in 1997. Rather than draw focus on one particular period, however, The Audience re-creates a number of the private weekly meetings that have taken place over the last 60 years between the Queen and each of the 12 Prime Ministers in power during her reign, thereby offering an effective overview of the nature and dynamic of these significant encounters.

In partnership with the Irish Museum of Modern Art on the occasion of new exhibition Cloud Illusions I Recall, which explores the relationship between art and cinema, the IFI is pleased to present two films by the great Chris Marker, chosen by artist and exhibit co-curator Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster.
