One of the masters of early German cinema, G. W. Pabst had an innate talent for discovering actresses (including Greta Garbo). And perhaps none of his female stars shone brighter than Kansas native and onetime Ziegfeld girl Louise Brooks, whose legendary persona was defined by Pabst’s lurid, controversial melodrama Pandora’s Box. Sensationally modern, the film follows the downward spiral of the fiery, brash, yet innocent showgirl Lulu, whose sexual vivacity has a devastating effect on everyone she comes in contact with. Daring and stylish, Pandora’s Box is one of silent cinema’s great masterworks and a testament to Brooks’s dazzling individuality.

Years before they became major players in Hollywood, a group of young German filmmakers - including eventual noir masters Robert Siodmak and Edgar G. Ulmer and future Oscar winners Billy Wilder and Fred Zinnemann - worked together on the once-in-a-lifetime collaboration People on Sunday (Menschen am Sonntag). This effervescent, sunlit silent, about a handful of city dwellers (a charming cast of nonprofessionals) enjoying a weekend outing, offers a rare glimpse of Weimar-era Berlin. A unique hybrid of documentary and fictional storytelling, People on Sunday was both an experiment and a mainstream hit that would influence generations of film artists around the world.

Genre: Drama

JÎN - named after its teenaged protagonist - is a kind of guerrilla travelogue set in southeastern Turkey, where Kurdish separatists wage a chronic, low-level (but lethal enough) war of independence against Erdogan’s iteration of the Turkish state. But it becomes a good deal more than that when Jîn strikes out into the forest alone, feeling constrained by her community of rebels and seeking to establish an identity of her own. As Jîn develops an empathic relationship with her environment by forming bonds with the creatures of the forest, the film takes on a hushed, almost magical quality that may remind some viewers of Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s work. Consistently absorbing, at times even transfixing, JÎN brings a poetic intensity to its study of the self in nature, and the nature of war.

An Iowa drugstore owner (Don Ameche) becomes embittered when his son is killed in World War II. The druggist believes that the boy's life was cut short before he had an opportunity to truly appreciate his existence. The grieving father is shown the error of his assumption by the ghost of his grandfather (Harry Carey), who through flashbacks details the good things about the son's short term on Earth, and the wonderful life that the druggist himself has enjoyed. Frances Dee plays Don Ameche's wife, while Ann Rutherford portrays his son's girl (who in turn is played in a flashback sequence by former Little Rascal Darla Hood).
