Life Itself

St. John's College Film Institute presents The Auteurs:

Robert Bresson: DIARY OF A COUNTRY PRIEST

Presented by St. John's College
Great movies are works of visual poetry. As with other forms of poetry, our understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John’s College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings—each in the best screening format available—to celebrate the work of eight of cinema’s essential artists.


"A masterpiece, its every sound and image unobtrusively precise … contemplative yet abrupt, eloquent and blunt, oblique but lucid...Few artists since the Renaissance have so convincingly wed the aesthetic to the spiritual." –J. Hoberman
Cinema’s master of austerity, Bresson’s intense portrait follows a French priest who, after arriving in a small village, finds himself utterly rejected by his new congregation. His resultant crisis of faith sends him into a dangerous spiral, and Bresson’s rigorous compositions summon the deep spirituality of the moment. (France, 1951, 120m, Rialto Films, 35mm)
