A Little Princess

11:00am
DIRECTOR: ALFONSO CUARóN
1995 / 97min / 35mm
Frances Hodgson Burnett’s beloved story becomes a beautifully wrought and emotionally delicate paean to the powers of imagination and perseverance in the hands of the young Cuarón, who tenderly watches over young Sara (Liesel Matthews) as she’s shipped off from her home in India to live in a boarding house ruled over by the iron-fisted Miss Minchin (Eleanor Bron).

1:00pm
DIRECTOR: JEAN VIGO
1934 / 89min / DCP
The tale of a country girl (Dita Parlo) and her unglamorous induction into married life with the captain of a river barge, L'Atalante is a film which, in its mixture of the lyrical, the erotic, and the earthily everyday, helped to outline the undefinable style of "French poetic realism."
