Faust / Berlin & Beyond 2012
TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE AT THE BOX OFFICE. Go directly to the Castro Theatre beginning at 12:30pm.

A modern depiction of the classic tale,Alexander Sokurov's version of Faust puts an eerie and surreal spin on the story of the skeptical doctor who sold his soul to the devil for knowledge. Taking a step away from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's popular telling, Sokurov explores through his own perspective humanity's struggle with concepts of power and love. The film opens with Heinrich Faust(Austrian actor Johannes Zeiler) hard at work as a well-respected but disenchanted man of medicine. Without hope, faith, or even bread, his hunger leads him to a mysterious moneylender (Anton Adasinsky) who offers him an alternative to suffering and longing by showing him a world of meaning. The two travel the town as Faust views life with a renewed sense of wonder, an enthusiasm which eventually leads him into a fatal love for a town girl, Margarete (Russian-German actress Isolda Dychauk). Faust seamlessly weaves together themes of timeless importance in a new and unique fashion exploring visually what has previously been left up to imagination. Ambitious and passionate as Faust himself, this film will leave you with more questions than answers... --Rickey Lee Bauman
