AN ANGEL AT MY TABLE (New Zealand, 1990, 158 minutes, Rated R) – Jane Campion tells the tale of New Zealand poet Janet Frame, painting a picture of the authoress’ turbulent life. The biographical film begins with childhood, and follows her through her difficult upbringing and her misdiagnosis as a schizophrenic. Committed to a mental institution, Frame is subjected to years of unnecessary shock treatments, but is rescued through her writing. Roger Ebert wrote, “An Angel at my Table is told with a clarity and simplicity that is quietly but completely absorbing. Yes, it is visually beautiful, and, yes, it is well-acted, but it doesn’t call attention to its qualities. It tells its story calmly and with great attention to human detail and, watching it, I found myself drawn in with a rare intensity.”

SHOW starts at 6pm (5:30 for pre-SHOW reception) and is FREE TO ALL.

THE PAINTING (France/Japan, 2012, 78 minutes) “In this wryly inventive parable, a kingdom within a painting is divided into three castes: the impeccably colored Alldunns, the incomplete Halfies, and the barely outlined Sketchies who are treated as outcasts. Chastised for her forbidden love of the dashing Ramo, Claire runs away into the cursed forest. Ramo and his friends journey after her, crossing over the boundaries of the forest only to arrive at the very edge of the painting – where they tumble through the canvas and into the Painter’s studio. The abandoned workspace is strewn with paintings, each containing its own vividly animated world and characters – and in a feast for both the eyes and the imagination, Ramo, Lola, Quill and Magenta explore picture after picture, in a quest to discover just what the Painter has in mind for his creations.” – Gkids
