October's Film: Weekend, directed by Jean-Luc Godard

This scathing late-sixties satire from Jean-Luc Godard is one of cinema's great anarchic works.

Determined to collect an inheritance from a dying relative, a bourgeois couple travel across the French countryside while civilization crashes and burns around them. Featuring a justly famous sequence in which the camera tracks along a seemingly endless traffic jam, and rich with historical and literary references, WEEKEND is a surreally funny and disturbing call for revolution, a depiction of society reverting to savagery, and-- according to the credits--the end of cinema itself.

Nominated for the Golden Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival.

Upcoming Films:

November: For All Mankind – the Apollo Space Missions / Al Reinert

December: Umbrellas of Cherbourg / Jacques Demy

Note: All films may contain mature subject matters and are intended for an older audience.
