21 May Halifax screening picks—May 21-27
This (Monday) evening, the Iranian film screening series resumes (presented at Carbon Arc) with No Date, No Signature, last year’s well-regarded social drama “shot in elegant, nearly black-and-white images highlighted with faint traces of color.”
Maison du Bonheur, Canadian Sofia Bohdanowicz’s shot-on-16mm Agnes-Varda-inspired bio-doc about an elderly French astrologer, which gained some positive notice at last year’s Hot Docs festival in Toronto, screens at the Alliance Française this Thursday for a suggested donation of $5.
Lean on Pete, the latest very highly regarded film from Andrew Haigh, director of Weekend and 45 Years, gets one more Halifax screening this Thursday at 4:30pm, Cineplex Park Lane.
