smARTfilms: Essential European - Closely Watched Trains
Closely Watched Trains (Czechoslovakia, 1966, 92 min)
Closely Watched Trains follows the story of a young man working at a train station during World War II in Czechoslovakia. Oblivious to the war and the resistance that surrounds him, this young man embarks on a journey of sexual awakening and self-discovery, encountering a universe of frustration, eroticism, and adventure within his sleepy backwater depot. Wry and tender, Academy Award-winning Closely Watched Trains is a masterpiece of human observation and one of the best-loved films of the Czech New Wave. Amazon Editorial Reviews
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 (see details below)! 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.
Come early for dinner featuring soup, salad, nightly specials, desserts and sweet treats in the BIMA Bistro. Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages available. Reservations recommended, call 206-451-4011. Dinner not included in ticket price.
