Isadora's ChildrenMay 10, 4:30 p.m. (canceled)Isadora Duncan's two young children, Patrick and Deidre, died in France in 1913, and the famous dancer never completely healed from this loss. She choreographed a dance entitled Mother, a tender reflection on her relationship with her children. French filmmaker Damien Manivel has used Duncan's concept to create a delicate fictional tale about art's ability to convey emotion and heal. The film comprises three interconnected stories, each focusing on a ballerina's discipline and rigor, but also conveying emotions to strangers in the audience. (Damien Manivel, 2019, subtitles, 84 minutes)

Restoration: Distant JourneyIntroduced by Lukáš Přibyl; Discussion with Gabriel Paletz and Lukaš Přibyl followsMay 17, 4:00 p.m. (canceled)Distant Journey (Daleka cesta) follows a Jewish doctor, Hana, who falls in love and marries a gentile named Toník. Their love story becomes a nightmare when Hana's family is transported to Theresienstadt (Terezín) and struggles to survive. Although director Alfréd Radok was only half Jewish, he lost much of his family in the Holocaust and was himself imprisoned in a camp near Wrocław, Poland. He began production on Distant Journey, his first film, soon after the war ended, shooting a large portion on location in Terezín, where both his father and grandfather had been killed. By the time Radok finished, the communists had taken over postwar Czechoslovakia, ushering in an era of censorship, and the film was subsequently banned for four decades. (Alfréd Radok, 1949, subtitles, 108 minutes) Presented in association with the Washington Jewish Film Festival.

The OakWashington, DC, premiere of the restorationJune 6, 2:00 p.m.After the fall of communism in Romania in 1989, Pintilie returned to Bucharest and became director of national film production for the Ministry of Culture. The Oak, his first film after returning home, follows Nela, a young schoolteacher, after the death of her father, an official with the country's secret police. On an uneasy odyssey through Romania, she carries his ashes in a Nescafe jar. After many surreal moments depicting the end of Nicolae Ceauşescu's regime, Nela meets a doctor named Mitica. His anti-authoritarian nature makes them instantaneous comrades in arms, but a sequence of surprises works against them, and for a while, nothing seems to go right. (1992, subtitles, 105 minutes)

An Unforgettable SummerJune 6, 4:30 p.m.Based on a short story by Petre Dumitriu, An Unforgettable Summer is set in the 1920s in a region that has been part of both Romania and Bulgaria. When the film opens, a young military officer (Dumitriu himself, played by Claudiu Bleont) is about to attend a ball with his wife Marie-Therese (Kristin Scott Thomas). After his wife resists the advances of a superior officer, this stylish cosmopolitan family is relocated to a dreary and desolate post along the Bulgarian/Romanian border, where the couple's marriage and, indeed, their lives are at stake. (1994, subtitles, 35mm, 81 minutes)

Niki and FloJune 7, 5:00 p.m.Retired army officer Niki Ardelean lives in a small Bucharest apartment with his ailing wife Poucha, his daughter Angela, and Angela's new husband Eugen. Angela is pregnant, but Niki's excitement is dulled by the fact that the young couple is planning to leave for the United States. He's torn between his wish to see his daughter happy and a desire to have her nearby. Meanwhile, Eugen's father Flo, a domestic tyrant of sorts, slowly exerts his control over Niki. (2003, subtitles, 35mm, 100 minutes)

The City Without JewsJune 20, 2:30 p.m.The City Without Jews (Die Stadt ohne Juden) was once considered lost, but this reconstructed version was released in 2019. The film is an adaptation of the 1922 The City Without Jews: A Novel of Our Time by Austrian writer Hugo Bettauer, a work now considered prophetic with respect to the Holocaust. Set in early 1920s Vienna, the film depicts a population feeling loss and looming social instability, aggravated by inflation and unemployment. The people are demanding the purging of Jews from the city. Newly commissioned score by Austrian composer Olga Neuworth. (Hans Karl Breslauer, 1924, subtitles, 80 minutes)

The Paper BridgeJune 20, 4:30 p.m.Ruth Beckermann, a widely admired master of the film essay genre, constructs works that are at once personal and political. Her first-person narrative The Paper Bridge (Die Papierene Brücke) is a journey through family history and an attempt to reclaim remnants of Jewish life in regions of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. On a trip from Vienna to Romania, she visits the sites where her grandmother hid from the Nazis and the place of her father's birth. Survivors of the Holocaust, Beckermann's parents met in Vienna after the war, and her film is in part a meditation on her own identity as a Jewish woman in postwar Austria. (Ruth Beckermann, 1987, subtitles, 95 minutes)

The Seventh ContinentJune 21, 5:15 p.m.Michael Haneke's debut feature foretells the artistry of his later masterworks. Based on a news story that the director read by chance, The Seventh Continent follows three years in the lives of an average middle-class Austrian family disillusioned by the emptiness and dull routines of their days. Husband Georg, wife Anna, and daughter Eva decide to discover for themselves the nirvana suggested by an Australian tourism poster they pass each day. Typical for Haneke's work, the conclusion is both shocking and redemptive. (Michael Haneke, 1989, 35 mm, subtitles, 111 minutes)

Notes on Film 02June 27, noonThe influence of Austria's lively avant-garde scene is evident in Notes on Film 02, as Norbert Pfaffenbichler combines structural filmmaking methods with elements of narrative cinema to investigate the theme of variation and repetition. Content from Robert Franks O.K. End Here (1963) comes in the form of random moments from the life of a married couple arranged on an alphanumeric editing model. (Norbert Pfaffenbichler, 2006, subtitles, 96 minutes) This film is presented in association with sixpackfilm, a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving and presenting Austrian experimental cinema.

Album for the YouthMalena Solarz, 2021, Argentina, 81mSpanish with English subtitlesNorth American premiereIn her solo debut feature, director Malena Solarz takes a surprising, gentle, altogether gratifying approach to the coming-of-age genre. Encouraging naturalistic performances from her charming cast and using a rigorously unshowy visual approach, Solarz explores how young people navigate their creative impulses, focusing on Sol (Ariel Rausch) and Pedro (Santiago Canepari), who, during summer break after high school graduation, prepare for possible futures as, respectively, a musician and a playwright. Drifting through tiny, mundane moments of connection and personal growth, exam preparations and writing workshops, Album for the Youth eschews predictable narrative beats of revelation; rather than being exalted, artistic endeavor is treated as a natural part of the human condition.Thursday, April 218:45pm, FLC Walter Reade Theater (Q&A with Malena Solarz)Sunday, April 246:45pm, MoMA T2 (Q&A with Malena Solarz)

Blue IslandChan Tze Woon, 2022, Hong Kong/Japan, 97mCantonese and Mandarin with English subtitlesUS premiereThe large-scale 2019 pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and the subsequent crackdown on freedoms provide the urgent anchoring point for this remarkable vision from HK filmmaker Chan Tze Woon, a genre-defying plunge into the political morass that has been ever-widening between the former colony and the controlling Chinese state. Taking a panoramic view of these fractures, and covering acts of resistance from 1967 to today, Chan mixes documentary footage and fictional recreations of the past starring contemporary student protestors (many awaiting prison sentencing for speaking out). Blue Island is an accomplishment of both political bravery and aesthetic daring, a film about the cyclical nature of history and the people who live within the folds of time, constantly on the edge of revolution. An Icarus Films release.Saturday, April 304:00pm, MoMA T2 (Q&A with Chan Tze Woon)Sunday, May 112:00pm, FLC Walter Reade Theater (Q&A with Chan Tze Woon)

Five Minutes OlderSara Szymańska, Poland, 2021, 6mPolish with English subtitlesUS premiereTraversing a hilly, windmill-studded landscape by car en route to a lakeside picnic, sardonic twins Mela and Zenia bicker, snipe, and cajole the day away in this sensitive, vivid portrait of sisterly attachment. 59ce067264
