The Strange Case of Angelica

On Glorious 35MM Film

May 05, 2011 - May 08, 2011
Screening Room


By Manoel de Oliveira

Why are we showing this film, which very recently had a theatrical engagement in San Francisco? Because it was shown as projected video, and not in its intended exhibition format – 35mm film. You deserve the opportunity to properly see this major work by Portuguese master filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira, who turned 102 in December. Included on dozens of 2010 "top ten" lists, the film is a magical tale of a young photographer who falls madly in love with a woman he can never have, except in his dreams. (2010, 97 min, 35mm)
