The Tin Drum - Director's Cut
California Central Valley Premiere of the newly-restored Director's Cut
Directed by Volker Schlöndorff
Danzig, 1924. Oskar Matzerath is born with an intellect beyond his infancy. As he witnesses the hypocrisy of adulthood and society, he rejects both, and, at his third birthday, refuses to grow older. Caught in a state of perpetual childhood, Oskar lashes out with piercing screams and frantic poundings on his tin drum, while the unheeding world marches towards the madness and folly of WWII. Honored with the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, Volker Schlöndorff's The Tin Drum has now been restored to its director's original vision, with twenty minutes of footage unseen since the film was cut at the behest of its distributor in 1979. The result is a visionary adaptation of Günter Grass's acclaimed 1959 novel, an unforgettable fantasia of surreal imagery, striking eroticism, and unflinching satire. (Janus Films)
