    Japón (Japan) (2002)

    Film: Japan

    Saturday, April 13, 8 p.m., Rich Theatre

    A brooding painter leaves Mexico City for a remote canyon, where he plans to commit suicide. After taking up lodging with an elderly widow, the two traverse the strange space between tradition and modernity, violence and serenity, and companionship and sexuality in this stunning meditation on nature and human frailty. Its tranquility punctuated by brief but raw depictions of sex and violence, Japón first established the style for which Carlos Reygadas would become famous. Winner of Best First Work in the Mexico Ariel Awards and a Golden Camera special mention at Cannes, among numerous other international prizes, Japón marks not only Reygadas's emergence onto the international art cinema stage but also a turning point in contemporary Mexican cinema at large.

    Pricing: General admission, $7; Museum members, students with I.D., and seniors, $7; Patron-level members, FREE
