CLARK ART INSTITUTE SCREENS DON’T LOOK NOW
Presentation is fourth installment in Manton 50th Anniversary Film Series: Films of 1973
Williamstown, Massachusetts—On Thursday, April 6 at 6 pm, the Clark Art Institute screens Don’t Look Now in its auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center. The showing is the fourth event in the Clark’s five-part series, Manton 50th Anniversary Film Series: Films of 1973, featuring some of the great cinematic highlights of a remarkable year.
Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie mesmerize as a married couple on an extended trip to Venice following a family tragedy. While in that elegantly decaying city, they have a series of inexplicable, terrifying, and increasingly dangerous experiences. A masterpiece from Nicolas Roeg, Don’t Look Now (1973; 1 hour, 50 minutes), adapted from a story by Daphne du Maurier, is a brilliantly disturbing tale of the supernatural. The film is renowned for its innovative editing and haunting cinematography, naturalistic eroticism and unforgettable climax and denouement, and shocking ending.
Free; registration is not required. For more information, visit clarkart.edu/events.
The final screening in the Manton 50th Anniversary Film Series: Films of 1973 is Badlands on May 11 at 6 pm in the Clark’s auditorium.
