Join us for our newest smARTfilms series, "Essential European." Come see your favorite movies as they are meant to be seen: on the big screen, in comfy chairs, and well fed! All screenings are followed by a facilitated discussion.
"Essential European" will be an overview of the landmark European films since the beginning of motion pictures. Cinema has always been an international enterprise with films from other countries mixing in with domestic releases to bring entertainment and information to the movie-going public. While frequently screened at art houses, many foreign films have entered the mainstream and become classics. While BIMA can't cover all the bases in these six weeks, our curators will try to capture a representative view of films that evoke the essence of their countries and provide some historical perspective.
