A Hard Day's Night (1964) Classics at the Browning Tuesday, November 25, 2014, 8:00 PM

Directed by Richard Lester
With John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Ringo Starr
Not Rated, 87 minutes, DCP

Meet the Beatles! Just one month after they exploded onto the U.S. scene with their Ed Sullivan appearance, John, Paul, George, and Ringo began working on a project that would bring their revolutionary talent to the big screen. A Hard Day’s Night, in which the bandmates play wily, exuberant versions of themselves, captured the astonishing moment when they officially became the singular, irreverent idols of their generation and changed music forever. Directed with raucous, anything-goes verve by Richard Lester, the film features a slew of iconic pop anthems, including the title track, “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “I Should Have Known Better,” and “If I Fell.”

Free for ND students.

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.

Free admission.

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.
