Join us for a new season in our ongoing selection of the best and brightest in recent films and restorations. This summer we’re welcoming a new print of Abbas Kiarostami’s seminal 1990 feature Close-Up (featuring vastly improved subtitles), and two newly restored classics of 1970s Americana, Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces. Balancing the hyperkinetic energies of Dennis Hopper and Jack Nicholson, we’ve also chosen two just-released, contemplative films about modern faith and mysticism from the recent San Francisco International Film Festival (ones that the PFA couldn’t show at the time due to scheduling conflicts), Jessica Hausner’s Lourdes and Bruno Dumont’s Hadewijch.
