Wandafuru raifu (After Life) screening

Wednesday, December 11 @ 21:3023:28

The Dryden will screen Wandafuru raifu (After Life, Hirokazu Kore-eda, Japan 1998, 118 min., DCP, Japanese w/subtitles) as part of the Voyages and Discoveries series.

In an extraordinary, lyrical, gentle, and touching film about reassessing one's own life, the protagonists, all recently deceased, arrive at a slightly crumbling institution, where they are each instructed to assess their lives and choose one important moment—a memory they can take with them forever. With sparse dialogue, the film manages to convey profound emotions and sentiments through moments of extreme stillness. It is a wonderful voyage of discovery, not only for those who recently died, but also for their assigned caseworkers themselves.

Once in a Hundred Years: The Life and Legacy of Marian Anderson screening

Thursday, December 12 @ 18:0018:52

The Little will screen Once in a Hundred Years: The Life and Legacy of Marian Anderson (Bill Nicoletti, U.S. 2019, 52 min.) followed by a discussion between Kearstin Piper Brown, and Bill Nicoletti as part of the Classical 915 Presents series.

Join Classical 91.5 and the Rochester Association of Black Journalists for a special presentation of this film that traces the arc of opera singer Marian Anderson's life and her struggles against racism and poverty. "Once in a Hundred Years" refers to the quote of the great conductor Arturo Toscanini who once told Marian Anderson: "A voice like yours is heard once in a hundred years." Marian Anderson's story continues to inspire people from very different backgrounds and her achievements in overcoming bigotry have secured her a place as a true pioneer internationally and in her hometown of Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love. We walk the streets where she lived; talk to the people who knew her, knew her family, and someone she babysat; see where she was educated and went to church; and marvel at how she was able to transcend humble beginnings to sing for tens of thousands of people, and for Presidents and queens on the world's stages.

It's a Wonderful Life screening (2019-Dec-12 @ 7:30 p.m.)

Thursday, December 12 @ 19:3021:40

The Dryden will screen It's a Wonderful Life (Frank Capra, U.S. 1946, 130 min., 35mm) with an introduction by actors Karolyn Grimes and Jimmy Hawkins (Zuzu and Tommy Bailey) as part of the Holidays, Canon series.

James Stewart and Donna Reed find their way through rough times in Bedford Falls (modeled on nearby Seneca Falls, New York) by way of a loving, dedicated relationship and a little heavenly intervention. As Stewart's and Capra's first work after their military service, the film takes the postwar malaise often seen in film noir and turns it on its head, constructing a narrative of faith and perseverance.
