Even Red Can Be Sad

Film - Feature | September 3 | 5 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Institute for South Asia Studies

An intricately mosaicked portrait of Ram Kumar at home and in the studio, Even Red Can Be Sad is so steeped in the nonagenarian artist’s writings and paintings as to seem a kind of secondhand self-portrait. Working from multiple streams of text and image, Dutta finds an apt muse for his own prismatic style in Kumar’s multidisciplinary talent.

On the Waterfront

Film - Feature | September 3 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

“I coulda had class,” says failed fighter Terry Malloy with all the bruised brilliance Marlon Brando could muster. Maybe so, but On the Waterfront did have class—class acting, class writing, class cinematography, and class warfare. Controversial for its allegations of corruption in the longshoremen’s union, the production itself was chock-full of friendly witnesses at the HUAC hearings, director...   More >

Kindness Is Contagious Poster

Full: Ritual

Film - Feature | September 6 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Local author Cedar Sigo performs a reading among altars, colored lights, and descending tones. Voicehandler (Jacob Heule and Danishta Rivero) play intuitive, incantatory music grounded in the human voice and percussion, but juxtaposed with contemporary, disembodied electronics. And New York–based performance artist Frank Haines brings us his trademark magical musical montage.

Nainsukh

Film - Feature | September 6 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Institute for South Asia Studies

Nainsukh (c. 1710–1778) came from a family of painters that settled in Guler in the northern hills of India. Growing up in an atmosphere of bold experimentation, Nainsukh enthusiastically took to the fluent naturalism of Mughal painting, notably setting his own artwork apart from the idealized approach to portraiture adopted by other Indian miniaturists of his time. In around 1740, he entered the...   More >

The Seventh Walk

Film - Feature | September 7 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Institute for South Asia Studies

In The Seventh Walk, Amit Dutta returns to northern India’s Kangra Valley, the lush mountain setting featured in his Nainsukh. As in the prior film, here Dutta considers the region’s rich visual arts tradition through the oeuvre of a native artist, in this case the contemporary landscape painter Paramjit Singh. Deftly blending sound, image, and text, this subtly hypnotic film meditates upon the...   More >

One-Eyed Jacks

Film - Feature | September 8 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Marlon Brando and Karl Malden fill the boots of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett (thinly disguised as “Rio” and “Dad Longworth”) in Brando’s Freudian epic, which reviewers dubbed one of the first antihero Westerns. Real cowboys, aging starlets, a twenty-nine-year-old Stanley Kubrick, and the stunning Central California coastline round out the cast. Barry Gifford writes in Brando Rides Alone, “That...   More >

The Men

Film - Feature | September 9 | 5 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

What happens when a man can’t do what a man’s gotta do? In 1950 this was a provocative question indeed. Marlon Brando made his screen debut as a World War II veteran paralyzed in the war and now struggling to accept his disability. It is a performance of marvelous sensitivity and physicality. At first a furious rebel against his fate, Brando’s Bud Wilchek keeps his fiancée Ellie (Teresa Wright)...   More >

Stalker

Film - Feature | September 9 | 7 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Back by popular demand! A sci-fi tale that unwinds in the environs of the soul takes the form of a nightmarish quest for nothing less than truth itself. In a plot employing the outlines of a novel by Soviet authors Arkady and Boris Strugatsky, who also wrote the screenplay, a writer and a scientist follow a shaven-headed “stalker” into forbidden territory, a dangerous wilderness known as the...   More >
