Eight Weeks of Film History:
1895 - 1939

We are pleased to provide our annual respite from the summer heat with a season of double feature screenings. Our popular program culls selections from the HFA’s 10,000 plus film collection, rare prints from international archives, and notable rediscoveries and reissues from the past year, including Antonioni’s The Passenger and Bresson’s Mouchette. This year, we present a whirlwind tour of film history which is by no means comprehensive but designed to give an overview of some of the more compelling international cinemas, including rarely screened work from France, Russia, Poland, Brazil, and Australia. The films are organized chronologically allowing a fascinating, if somewhat arbitrary, weekly journey from the origins of cinema to the present day.
