Shadows | John Cassavetes | United States, 1959

Film - Feature | May 7 | 4:15 p.m. |  Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

Time never caught up with Cassavetes’s first film; his tale of three black Manhattanites is still inherently hip, mordantly funny, terribly sad, and very New York.

The Holy Mountain | Alejandro Jodorowsky, | Mexico, 1973

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

 Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive

One man’s (acid) trip toward enlightened consciousness heads across deserts, galaxies, islands, and more. The most outrageously psychedelic film ever made: you can’t understand the early 1970s without this.
