STATIONS OF THE CROSS
Directed by Dietrich Brüggmann
Germany / 2014 / German with English subtitles
Told in fourteen fixed-angle, single shot, individual tableaus that parallel Christ's journey to his own crucifixion, STATIONS OF THE CROSS is both an indictment of fundamentalist faith and the articulation of an impressionable teen's struggle to find her own path in life. Though from the outside Maria lives in the modern world, her family and her heart are faithful to a Catholic radicalism that requires sacrifice and devotion at every turn. As she struggles to balance her own desires with the dictates of her family's faith, she makes ever more perilous sacrifices, attempting to please a God she worships unquestioningly in the pious hopes of curing the autistic younger brother she adores.
French Film series concludes Sept 16th with L'Enfer
The Alliance Française Ciné Club is bringing a series of 3 French films to Rochester Public Library this year.
The series concludes on September 16th at 6:00pm with Claude Chabrol's drama L’Enfer starring François Cluzet and Emmanuel Béart. All movies are free and shown with English subtitles. Download the poster in PDF form.
