Wednesday, March 22, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:45pm
Film Screening: "Noroît" (Jacques Rivette, 1976, 145 min, France, in French w/ English subtitles, Color, Digital) / After her brother was killed by a notorious all-female pirate gang, Morag dedicates her life to bringing the murderers to justice. Soon, she has become an important member of the pirate gang and has begun acquiring the loyalty of key members. Eventually, she makes her move and challenges the leader, a demi-god (literally), known as "The Daughter of the Sun." The story of "Noroit" is based on an early 17th-century tragedy by Cyril Tourneur, and, though it is only the third one filmed, the movie is the concluding episode in a four-part series by director Jacques Rivette. / "'Noroît' contains the most beautiful images and sounds of any Rivette film, and the fewest indications of what a spectator is meant to do with them, apart from look and listen." - Jonathan Rosenbaum / Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doB8giatNJ0
