“Into the Real” - Movie Nights in Brooklyn

Heart’s Home Movie Nights in Brooklyn - Season 2009-2010

"Perhaps it would be worth con­sid­ering that what we need from movies, in the face of a dis­maying and con­fusing real world, is realism." A.O. Scott, NY Times, march 2009

Launched last Fall, our Movie Nights became a monthly rendez-vous for cinema lovers from Brooklyn and beyond. Starting in September, our 2009-2010 season will follow the same track, with a slight change though: movies will now be screened on Saturdays at 7:00 p.m. Throughout the year we will explore the theme of realism.

Our society does not suffer so much from a want of morality, not even of reli­giosity, as from a weak­ening of our sense of reality. Life tends to be lived like a per­for­mance on a stage, where feel­ings are mimed and actions are without con­se­quences. Only a dif­ferent gaze, a real one, can save us from this temp­ta­tion of a vir­tual society. Cinema offers us to see the world through the lens of the camera, and thereby through the eyes of the artist. Come and join us to dis­cover the world as it is - good or bad, beau­tiful or ugly - through the eyes of the Dardenne brothers, Pasolini, Kurosawa, Ermanno Olmi, Tarkovsky and many others. Each with his unique gaze, they all lead us, with pas­sion and talent, into the real.

Screenings will be followed by refreshments and a discussion.

Come and join us!!
