Donde yo vivo hay un muy buen mini-cine que puede acomodar hasta 20 personas (mas or menos). Cuenta con sala de teatro, un proyector y pantalla de gran tamaño. Usted puede traer comida y bebidas si quieres. Mi edificio de apartamentos también cuenta con una terraza en la azotea, que sería grande para las reuniones post-cine.
This week we'll be watching:
L'ECLISSE / ECLIPSE (Michelangelo Antonioni, Italy, 1962)
The conclusion of Michelangelo Antonioni’s loose trilogy (preceded by L’Avventura and La Notte), this 1961 film is conceivably the best in Antonioni’s career, but significantly it has the least consequential plot. A sometime translator (Monica Vitti) recovering from an unhappy love affair briefly links up with a stockbroker (Alain Delon) in Rome, though the stunning final montage sequence — perhaps the most powerful thing Antonioni has ever done — does without these characters entirely. Alternately an essay and a prose poem about the contemporary world in which the love story figures as one of many motifs, this is remarkable both for its visual/atmospheric richness and its polyphonic and polyrhythmic mise en scene (Antonioni’s handling of crowds at the Roman stock exchange is never less than amazing). In Italian with subtitles. 123 min. - Jonathan Rosenbaum
The event is located just off of Reforma, behind the MI Museo Indígena in a building called "Hacienda Reforma". Call me and I'll come let you in: 5531988705
Metros Garibaldi and Tlatelolco are nearby, but I find it's easier just to take the Reforma bus in the direction of Indio Verdes or La Villa get off just before Eje 2 Norte. Or ride a bike!
