Foreign Film at the Kentucky Theatre
Sqecial Media’s relaunch of the Rosa Goddard International Film Festival continues with two final screenings. On Wednesday, September 28, the Kentucky Theatre will host a screening of Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire. This 1987 classic starring Bruno Ganz and Peter Falk was beautifully shot by Henri Alekan, the same cinematographer who photographed Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast. The festival will close on Wednesday, October 5 with Fantastic Planet, a psychedelic animated classic which took home a special jury prize at Cannes in 1973. All films in the series are shown in 35 mm in their original language with English subtitles. Screenings start at 7:15 PM, are $4, and are preceded by prize drawings for DVDs and posters.
