Jonah Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000

Film - Feature | August 3 | 7-8:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

The cinema of Alain Tanner has always made room for society’s dropouts and dreamers, and nowhere more so than in his most celebrated work (coauthored by John Berger), which tracks a ragtag group of Swiss strangers, brought together by chance and a shared anticapitalist spirit, and the little refuge they create for themselves in the face of political and economic failures.

Rendezvous de Juillet

Film - Feature | August 4 | 8-9:30 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Becker’s spirited portrait of Left Bank youth was the first film to examine the struggles of this generation that emerged from the war with neither the guilt nor the sadness of their parents, but rather with a feverish desire for action, and a despair at the prospect of a meaningless life.
