CAT PROGRAM 3 - Saturday 10/24 at 7
Chris Marker
2004, 58 minutes, video.
One of the most famously cat-happy of all great filmmakers, Chris Marker gave his love of the species perhaps its fullest expression in this 2004 film, a typically wide-ranging essay on 21st-century politics and culture which takes as its point of departure the cartoon cats that began mysteriously appearing on Paris’s buildings, Metro walls, and other public surfaces in November 2001.
This program will also feature a variety of surprises, including classic TV, animation, and a dash of YouTube!

THE PINK PANTHER - Saturday 10/24 at 9
by Blake Edwards
1963, 115 minutes, 35mm. With Peter Sellers, David Niven, Robert Wagner, Capucine, and Claudia Cardinale.
With this screening of Blake Edwards’s comedy classic, CHAT D’ŒUVRES pays tribute to one of the most famous big cats of all, making his first appearance, accompanied by Henry Mancini’s unparalleled theme song, in the animated title sequence.
