(1958, DCP, 83m, Czech with English subtitles) dir Karel Zeman w/Lubor Tokos, Arnost Navrátil.

ALICE

The Trylon microcinema

Fri Apr 01 9:00
Sat Apr 02 9:00
Sun Apr 03 7:00

(1988, DCP, 86m, Czech with English subtitles) dir Jan Svankmajer w/Krystýna Kohmoutová. Svankmajer's creepy, disturbing hybrid of live action and stop-motion animation (variously employing taxidermy, living slabs of meat, and broken dolls) is probably not recommended for young children who want to sleep well. Screenings of Invention for Destruction and Alice are made possible by support from the Czech and Slovak Cultural Center of Minnesota, with additional support from the Honorary Consulate of the Czech Republic in Minneapolis (Marit Lee Kucera, Honorary Consul), Czech and Slovak Sokol Minnesota, Česká a slovenská škola Twin Cities, the Czechoslovak Genealogical Society International, and Cinnamon Whaley.

(1985, DCP, 97m) dir John Hughes w/Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Paul Gleason. Loosen your scarves and retreat into your Walkman as Hughes explores teenage angst in this Brat Pack coming-of-age movie. Serving an eight-hour Saturday detention in the high school library, five students from different cliques build a fragile comradery, revealing a sweetly caustic response to authority.

(1984, DCP, 93m) dir John Hughes w/Molly Ringwald, Anthony Michael Hall, Gedde Watanabe. Tenacious Samantha Baker (Ringwald) tries to celebrate her sixteenth birthday on the eve of her older sister’s wedding.

JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 COMMERCE QUAY, 1080 BRUSSELS

The Trylon microcinema

Fri Apr 15 7:00
Sat Apr 16 7:00
Sun Apr 17 5:00

(1975, DCP, 201m, French with English subtitles) dir Chantal Akerman, w/Delphine Seyrig. The late Akerman’s best-known feature is heralded for its astute formalism and detail. It traces the daily life of an isolated mother in Brussels. Filmed in real time, the camera captures each mundane task Jeanne Dielman completes, from eye-twitching potato peeling to stifled sex with strange men. Celebrate Chantal Akerman citywide: her final film, No Home Movie plays at the Walker Art Center April 1-3.

PINK FLAMINGOS

The Trylon microcinema

Fri Apr 22 7:00 9:00
Sat Apr 23 7:00 9:00
Sun Apr 24 5:00 7:00

(1972, 35mm, 93m) dir John Waters, w/Divine, David Lochary, Mary Vivian Pearce. Flamboyant Baltimore criminal Divine (Divine) has been tabloid-dubbed the Filthiest Person Alive. When the Marble family challenges her title by selling heroin to children, she fights back. For many, Waters’s film is the ne plus ultra of cinematic bad taste. Promotional support is provided by Gender Reel.
