Ivan the Terrible, Parts I and II (1944/1958)
Classics at the Browning
Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 8:00 PM
Directed by Sergei Eisenstein
With Nikolai Cherkasov, Serafima Birman, Pavel Kadochnikov
Not Rated, 191 minutes, DVD
Russian with English subtitles
Navigating the deadly waters of Stalinist politics, Eisenstein was able to film two parts of his planned trilogy about the troubled sixteenth-century tsar who united Russia. Visually stunning and powerfully acted, Ivan the Terrible charts the rise to power and descent into terror of this veritable dictator. Though pleased with the first installment, Stalin detested the portrait in the second film—with its summary executions and secret police—and promptly banned it. Note: There will be a brief intermission between Parts I and II.
Granito: How to Nail a Dictator (2011)
History on Film
Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 7:00 PM
Directed by Pamela Yates
Not Rated, 104 minutes, BluRay
In January 2012, a Guatemalan court indicted former Guatemalan general and dictator Efraín Ríos Montt for mass murders of the Mayan people during the 1980s, becoming the first former head of state to be tried in his own country for genocide. In 1982, filmmaker Pamela Yates gained unprecedented access to Ríos Montt, his generals and leftist guerrillas documented in the film, When the Mountains Tremble (1983). Thirty years later, Yates’s film and its outtakes provide crucial evidence to finally bring the former dictator to justice.
Filmmakers Pamela Yates and Paco de Onis are scheduled to appear in person.
