Northwest Film Forum Announces Spring Program

Posted by on February 10 at 18:40 PM

The Film Forum hasn’t posted the new schedule on its website yet, but here’s a sneak peek at some of the highlights:

MARCH 3-16: Duma, the heartwarming cheetah/boy friendship movie that Manohla Dargis called “piercingly beautiful”.

MARCH 17-22: A History of Jean-Luc Godard. The program includes a week of my personal Godard favorite, Band of Outsiders, plus the Seattle premiere of the massive video epic Histoires du Cinema.

APRIL 7-13: The Intruder. Mmmmmm, Claire Denis. This one is reportedly a little zonked, but anything by Denis is an absolute must-see.

APRIL 14-20: Innocence. I am so excited. So excited. Now I don’t have to go to Portland next weekend! (But April 14 is a long time to wait…) Innocence about little girls and ribbons and scary Germanic forests, and it’s by a woman with an unpronounceable last name who sleeps with brutosaurus rex Gaspar NoĆ©. In other words: It’s gotta be good.
