Breaking the Waves

Set in a rugged, coastal village in Scotland in the 1970's, this extraordinary film by Lars von Trier is concerned with a naive girl named Bess, who holds regular conversations with God and whose pure and intensely personal faith is hardly tolerated by the gruesome Calvinist elders of her church.

Nouvell Vage-French New Wave CinemaNOUVELLE VAGUE - FRENCH NEW WAVE

The origins and early history of both photography (Daguerre) and cinema
(Lumiere Bothers) are traceable back to Paris. The city has figured prominently in the history of both these arts and has exerted an especially deep influence on the development of contemporary cinema; both in form and content. The
French New Wave cinema movement of the early 1960's revolutionized film, film theory and the style of contemporary movies. Presented in conjunction with the A Tale of Two Cities exhibition.

Set in Prague at the outbreak of WWII, Protektor centers on the story of radio reporter Emil, who is married to Hana, a famous film star who is initially oblivious to the Nazi threat. Hana's Jewish heritage precipitates her fall from the height of her career to the bottom of the social ladder. In order to protect her, Emil compromises himself, collaborating with the new Nazi-controlled state radio station. Conditions worsen as restrictions on Jews are systematically increased. The assassination of the Third Reich Deputy Protector and a chance encounter on a bicycle bring their malingering marriage to a crisis.
