FEMMES FEMMES (formerly 3 Women) is a series of monthly film screenings presented by Anika Ahuja and Rebecca Ladds, which aims to highlight strong female presence in cinema in relation to the historical definition of “hysteria”, a dismissive and broad diagnosis exclusively used in regarding women’s emotions and mental health. This concept relates with issues of violence and sexuality and is relevant to the stigmatization of mental health in modern relationships and in explorations of intersectional feminist discourse.

With each screening we will make a donation with the profits of ‘pay-what-you-can’ admission to benefit local charities that aid women and children.
Suggested donation is 5$.

THIS MONTH:
Selected short films followed by –

Monday, July 11th, Ritz presents Claire Denis’ seminal triumph, Beau Travail (1999) in glorious 35mm with projection by Robert Film Services.

Denis Lavant plays Galoup, an ex-Foreign Legion officer who regales us with his salad days leading men in the Gulf of Djibouti. Though inherently brutal, Galoup’s experience is tenfold complicated by the arrival of Sentain, an Adonis and recruit of great promise who quickly attracts the attention of Galoup’s superior. What follows is a power struggle for the ages flanked at all sides by soldiers drilling, housekeeping and enjoying Djibouti’s charged nightlife. Based on a novella by Herman Melville as well as an opera by Benjamin Britten.

French with English Subtitles.

Admission is $10 to cover print, projector, and screening rights.

Order some pizza + bring a date!
