Hiroshima Mon Amour screening
Saturday, February 18 @ 19:30–21:00
The Dryden will screen Hiroshima Mon Amour (Alain Resnais, France/Japan 1959, 90 min., 35mm, French and Japanese w/subtitles) as part of the Three Films by Alain Resnais series.
Working from a script by Marguerite Duras, Resnais made his feature debut a modernist duet, with male and female voices intertwining over arresting images of love and war. The result: an intellectual and erotic masterpiece. Awarded the International Critics' Prize at Cannes, Hiroshima Mon Amour caused a sensation for its scenes of sexual intimacy and its poignant treatment of doomed romance.
