USELESS
Jia Zhang-ke | 2007 | China | 80m
“Not Coming to a Theater Near You”
8:00 at 92Y Tribeca

“Jia Zhang-Ke’s roaming kino-eye finds an ideal subject with Useless, a three-part documentary…about the Chinese clothing industry. Jia’s almost constantly moving camera seems to brings an elegiac tranquility to everything it observes. The movement is hypnotic and so self-assured that one suspects the director could make visual poetry out of absolute nothingness.”
Chris Chang, Film Comment

 

Sophie’s Choice!

3:00 at Anthology [Program & Tix]

SÁTÁNTANGÓ
Béla Tarr | ’94 | Hungary | 450m
“Jonas Mekas Selects: Boring Masterpieces”
3:00 at Anthology

“One of the great, largely unseeable movies of the last dozen years. Hungarian director Béla Tarr’s seven-and-a-half-hour masterpiece…is a bleakly comic allegory of social disintegration on the muddy puszta. Set on an entropic collective farm during the last years of Hungarian Communism, it’s a mordant, characteristically Eastern European tale of hapless peasants and charismatic swindlers.”
J. Hoberman, Village Voice [Read More]
