Olivier Meslay, Hardymon Director of the Clark, introduces the film.

In conjunction with Turner and Constable: The Inhabited Landscape, Images Cinema and the Clark Art Institute present The View from Here, a film series exploring three different approaches to the role of landscapes in cinema: as subject, as inspiration, and as a means to explore character and emotion. 

Days of Heaven (1978) 
When three drifters take refuge from the world at large on the land of a lonely rancher, they all find their private paradise threatened by unspoken secrets and lies. Terrence Malick’s second film, stunningly beautiful both visually and emotionally, was filmed by cinematographer Néstor Almendros, who won an Academy Award for his striking, bucolic imagery of the plains of the Texas panhandle.

Run time: 1 hour, 35 minutes

Additional films in the series include:
Columbus (2017), February 23, 2:30 pm
Leaning into the Wind (2018), March 9, 2:30 pm

Tickets for each film can be purchased at the Images Box Office, located at 50 Spring Street, Williamstown. Tickets are $8 general adult matinee admission, $5 Clark and Images members.
