“Among the greatest filmmakers of the last century, Bresson is one of the few directors for whom cinema was both an aesthetic and spiritual pursuit, a search that was reflected in films for which the words ‘sublime,’ ‘transcendent’ and ‘masterpiece’ can seem somehow lacking.” – Manohla Dargis, L.A. Times

In conjunction with our 50th Anniversary revival run of Au Hasard Balthazar on 35mm, Metrograph screens a handful of masterpieces by the great Robert Bresson.

Special thanks to the Cultural Services at the French Embassy, Amelie Garin-Davet, and Mathieu Fournet. Select prints courtesy of Institut français.
