truths hidden in the hearts of men.

Josef von Sternberg
ANATAHAN
Inspired by an actual event during
WWII, Josef von Sternberg’s ANATAHAN, tells the story of a dozen
Japanese sailors stranded on the remote
island of Anatahan during the waning
days of the war. The war ends, unbeknownst to the men, and they engage
in their own private war for dominance
of their island domain and possession of
the sole woman in their midst, Keiko
(Akemi Negishi), the so-called “Queen
Bee” of Anatahan. This new 2K restoration of the uncensored 1958 version was Sternberg’s preferred cut of the film.

MOUNTAINS
MAY DEPART
SWEET BEAN
A lonely baker has his life (and business) reinvigorated when he hires an elderly woman
with an uncanny culinary skill and a mysterious communion with nature, in this graceful, quietly moving drama from Japan’s
Naomi Kawase.
Mainland master Jia Zhangke (A Touch of Sin)
scales new heights with MOUNTAINS MAY
DEPART. A decades-spanning epic that leaps
from the recent past to the present to the speculative near-future, Jia’s new film is an intimate
and intensely moving study of how China’s economic boom and the culture of materialism has
affected the bonds of family, tradition, and love.
