What sounds more meditative than watching a 98 minute film following the Three Magi as they cross “scorching deserts, climb the highest mountain in Spain, and hike through rocky plains in an environment of barely controlled anarchy” on their quest to visit baby Jesus? Well, maybe a lot of things, but it sure does sound like a visual trip worth taking. Biblical undertones aside, Albert Serra’s EL CANT DELS OCELLS (Birdsong) is above anything a treat for your senses; the story was shot in the Canary Islands on 35mm film in black and white, thereby capturing some of the most beautiful landscapes in a way that you will never, ever see through your own eyes.
Date & Time: February 25th – March 3rd, 7PM and 9:15PM. Additional screenings on Saturday and Sunday at 3PM.
