Today At The Clinton Street Theater



Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of our vintage theater, we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Other locations include Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard and the North Star Ballroom. Check the CofF Facebook page for more information about other screenings.

Church of Film presents CONFESSION, THEORY, ACTRESS


Wednesday, Aug 15

The stories, traumas, and psyches of three actresses. Mazumori Shoko loses, or thinks she loses, her voice in a dream and must speak through her understudy, Rie. But what really happened in that dream, or in reality? Akiko Kaido believes she is being menaced by the wife of her lover, but it may be that she is the one being deceived. Makiko Isaku returns to her hometown to recount to her costumer the tale of a failed double suicide between with her childhood lover... but she may have forgotten who her lover was. Kiju Yoshida's fractured psychic topography is a spellbinding web drawing on influences of Ingmar Bergman and Michelangelo Antonioni in which every immaculately crafted shot tells its own sad or sinister story.
