“It’s a disorientingly beautiful movie at times, which promises — as Denis always does, I think — that human madness and human love will balance each other out, in the fullness of time.” -Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com


Co-presented by University of Akron Professor Ray Gehani’s newly formed “France-US Zippy Fraternity,” the Akron Art Museum, and Akron Film+Pixel. We’ll watch Claire Denis’s 2009 film WHITE MATERIAL, which landed on many ten best lists that year. There will be an introduction and post-film discussion. It’s free!


“A striking film filled with images that sometimes reveal their full meaning only when their beauty curdles in the chain of signification.” -Manhola Dargis, NY Times
