2015 ACADEMY AWARD® NOMINEES CITIZENFOUR, THE TALE of the PRINCESS KAGUYA, and INHERENT VICE (in 35mm)
The Gene Siskel Film Center of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago will be presenting three Academy Award®-nominated films in February and March, as follows:
Academy Award® Nominee for Best Documentary Feature! CITIZENFOUR
February 6 – 12. CITIZENFOUR is in a class of its own as a vehicle for whistle-blower Edward Snowden’s shocking revelations of the vast scope of government surveillance of U.S. citizens. His plan for going public plays out in real time with the dangerous edge of a cloak-and-dagger thriller made all the more gut wrenching by its real-life veracity. http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org/citizenfour
Academy Award® Nominee for Best Animated Feature!
Back by Popular Demand!
THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA
February 13 – 19 Due to the extreme popularity of our first Chicago run, the Film Center is bringing back what many have called “the best animated film of the year.” Based on a 10th-century Japanese folk tale, THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA is a marvelous journey steeped in the profound humanism that is the trademark of Studio Ghibli’s Isao Takahata (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES). http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org/princesskaguya
Academy Award® Nominee for Best Adapted Screenplay! In 35mm!
February 27 – March 5. So what does America’s most unpredictable auteur (Paul Thomas Anderson) do for an encore after the monumental diptych of THERE WILL BE BLOOD and THE MASTER? He goes loose, mellow, far-out, and funny, with a gloriously overstuffed stoner detective thriller, adapted from the novel by previously un-adaptable Thomas Pynchon. Presented in the director’s preferred format of 35mm celluloid, essential to the film’s funky vibe and hot, hazy colors.
