Paul Barnes’s Weekly Update on What’s Happening

This week at CCA (March 1-7), we are screening an extraordinary animated Polish drama The Peasants, which is based on a Nobel Prize-winning novel, made by the directors of the CCA hit Loving Vincent.

We are also holding over Perfect Days by Wim Wenders. CCA audiences have embraced the modest life and philosophy of Hirayama, the toilet cleaner sublimely portrayed by Kôji Yakusho.
In addition, we are screening The Sweet East, the directorial debut of famed cinematographer Sean Patrick Williams – a “riotous Alice in Wondermerica” road-trip comedy, a very funny satire of life in the United States.

And just before the Oscars, we will screen the popular Oscar-Nominated Documentary Shorts program, consisting of five films that cover aging, politics in Taiwan, children’s music education, book banning, and a Black non-profit fund.

And finally on Saturday, March 2, CCA will present a very special program, Right in the Eye. A live original music score will accompany a screening of the delightful silent films of pioneer Georges Méliès, the father of the fantasy film — a NOT-TO-BE-MISSED program ideal for both adults and children!
