What you'll learn in this film studies class:

Given the terrific response to both of the “Reel Pieces Remote: Classic Films with Annette Insdorf” series thus far, we are delighted to offer a third course.

Reel Pieces Remote: Pre-“Oscar” Foreign Films continues on January 24 with the 8th edition of Annette Insdorf’s popular online series.

The beginning of “Oscar” season provides a unique opportunity for Reel Pieces Remote to sample notable new contenders, in addition to rediscovering foreign-language masterpieces of the recent past. The series will expand to include some of the movies of 2020 selected by their respective countries for the “Best International Feature” Academy Award. Annette Insdorf will interview the filmmakers (some will be pre-recorded), and each of the five classes — which meet Sundays at 8 pm ET — will include a live discussion component. For films that have not yet been released, attendees will receive a complimentary private link.

Series 8: Jan 24 - Feb 21

Jan 24: Spotlight on Women: Asia (Israel, dir Ruthy Pribar) and Willow (Macedonia, dir Milcho Manchevski)

  • Asia: a moving drama about the tense, loving relationship between Asia (Alena Yiv) - a young Russian immigrant - and her physically-challenged, hard-edged daughter (Shira Haas).
  • Willow: like Manchevski’s Before the Rain, an engaging triptych set in Macedonia. The three stories are anchored in the futile yearning of women (and their husbands) for a baby.

Jan 31: Persecuted Heroes: Arracht (Ireland, dir Tom Sullivan) and Broken Keys (Lebanon, dir Jimmy Keyrouz)

  • Arracht: a powerful and poetic drama set in the West of Ireland during the Great Famine of the mid-19th century. An exiled fisherman tries to protect a wounded young girl and teach her how to survive.
  • Broken Keys: When ISIS forbids music in a war-torn town, a piano becomes a tool of escape as well as resistance for a young man. Based on Keyrouz's Nocturne in Black, winner of the 2017 Student Academy Award.

Feb 7: Struggling Under Communism: Dear Comrades (Russia, dir Andrei Konchalovsky) and Charlatan (Czech Republic, dir Agnieszka Holland)

  • Dear Comrades: Lyuda (Julia Vysotskaya) is an unrepentant Stalinist, a hard-liner whose devotion to the Party is questioned when her teenage daughter takes part in a strike that the authorities try to destroy and cover up.
  • Charlatan: loosely inspired by the true story of a popular herbalist, this drama traces his rise as a healer, and his political persecution in the late 1950s, after he refuses to nationalize his thriving practice.

Feb 14: A Separation (Iran, Oscar winner 2012). Asghar Farhadi's drama about two families in contemporary Tehran hinges on misunderstandings. It interweaves secular as well as devout characters, male and female, wealthy and poor. $4 rental Amazon Prime and YouTube.

Feb 21: Where Do We Go Now? (Lebanon, Oscar nominee 2011). Nadine Labaki's ensemble piece offers a fresh female perspective on sectarian violence in the Middle East. Her humanist fable won the Toronto Film Festival "People's Choice" Audience Award. $4 rental Amazon Prime and YouTube.
