IMMA + IFI: What We Call Love | Saturday 23 January  – Sunday 24 January 2016 | Irish Film Institute

IMMA is delighted to be partnering with the Irish Film Institute on a weekend programme of films selected to respond to our current exhibition What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now. The selected films reflect how the surrealist tradition has incorporated themes of love into their experimental works; from the early days of cinema to the present.

This special weekend programme includes a Saturday double bill in original 35mm, and a contemporary work on Sunday in Digital HD.

Film Series Programme Details

Saturday 23 January 2016, 1.30pm, IFI

A short talk from Rachel Thomas (Head of Exhibitions, IMMA) introduces this film series in the context of the IMMA exhibition; What We Call Love: From Surrealism to Now. This will be followed by a Double Bill on 35mm:

Un Chant D Amour (A Song of Love)

Dir: Jean Genet, 1950, 26 minutes, B&W, 35mm

This silent film directed by political and radical gay icon Jean Genet, presents a passionate relationship between inmates, separated from each other by prison walls. A revolutionary vision of emancipation through sensuality, Genet’s only film is a milestone in LGBT filmmaking.

L’Âge d’Or

Dir: Luis Buñuel, 1930, 63 minutes, B&W, 35mm

In a series of thematically linked vignettes, a couple’s attempts at consummating their relationship are continually thwarted by the bourgeois values and mores of their society. Collaborating with Salvador Dali, Louis Bunuel experimental feature is a classic of the surrealist movement.

 

Sunday 24 January 2016, 1.30pm, IFI

Under The Skin

Dir: Jonathan Glazer, 2013, 108 minutes, Colour, Digital

An alien has landed in Glasgow. Taking the form of a woman, she drives around the city luring lonely or lecherous men to a grim fate. Social realism and science fiction meld to startling effect in Jonathan Glazer’s hugely inventive third feature, a mesmerising audio visual experience with Scarlett Johansson perfectly cast as the unknowable, predatory being.
