Halifax screening picks—January 15-21

On Tuesday this week, the Dal Art Gallery kicks off a year-long series of free screenings spotlighting the work of women filmmakers, going back before Triumph of the Will and Olympia to Leni Riefenstahl’s 1932 directorial debut The Blue Light, “a visual tone poem to the mountainside, best appreciated as a silent film with snippets of dialogue.”

The Central Library Wes Anderson retrospective continues this week with Zack Miller introducing Bottle Rocket on Thursday and a make-up edition on Sunday of the previously stormed-out screening of Rushmore, introduced by Kendra Barnes.

The latest from Steven Spielberg, The Post, with a powerhouse cast including Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks, is piling up rave reviews, but locally there is at least one dissenting opinion.
