Days of Heaven presented by the Phoenix Film Society
In celebration of Terrence Malick's new film "Tree of Life" we will be screening two of his classic films.
Days of Heaven on Tuesday, May 31st at 7pm
Post film discussion hosted by Chris LaMont
One-of-a-kind filmmaker-philosopher Terrence Malick has created some of the most visually arresting movies of the twentieth century, and his glorious period tragedy Days of Heaven, featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by Nestor Almendros, stands out among them. In 1910, a Chicago steel worker (Richard Gere) accidentally kills his supervisor and flees to the Texas panhandle with his girlfriend (Brooke Adams) and little sister (Linda Manz) to work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer (Sam Shepard). A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire-Malick captures it all with dreamlike authenticity, creating at once a timeless American idyll and a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor.
"The Thin Red Line" will also screen on June 2nd.
