St. John's College Film Institute presents The Auteurs:

Andrei Tarkovsky: ANDREI RUBLEV

Presented by St. John's College
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John’s College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings—each in the best screening format available—to celebrate the work of eight of cinema’s essential artists.


“The best arthouse film of all time … as close to transcendence as cinema gets.” The Guardian
Commissioned to paint the interior of the Vladimir cathedral, a great artist travels across Russia, witnessing cruelty, brutality and narrow-mindedness, and arrives at his destination in a crisis of faith. He retreats into silence, emerging only after the appearance of a spirited young artist. Tarkovsky’s controversial epic, banned and then mercilessly edited by Russian authorities, exists in its own cinematic plane, providing a startlingly visual, otherworldly vision of the challenges faced by a creative spirit. (Russia, 1966, 183m, digital)

10:30am - New Showtime of 11:00am Saturday-Sunday August 2-3; 5:30p Monday, August 4

Whitey: United States V. James J. Bulger

“Riveting. An eye-opener that at times doesn’t resemble a true crime doc as much as a first-rate James Ellroy adaptation.”  –The Playlist
Oscar-nominated director Joe Berlinger tells the shocking story of one of America’s most infamous criminals, one that indicts not only the gangster, but deep corruption inside America’s law enforcement and legal systems. With unprecedented access, Berlinger (PARADISE LOST) tells one of the greatest of true-crime stories cinema has seen. (U.S., 2014, 130m, DCP, Magnolia Pictures)

One of the most remarkable movies that I have ever seen. This isn't hyperbole.” –Huffington Post

“A bawdy, bittersweet ode to friendship’s lasting joys and life’s inevitable regrets, the film also offers sturdy testament to the rewards of working as a duo, showcasing only pitch-perfect turns.” Variety
