September 2014: Drifting Clouds

We’re baa-ack! Umm. Wrong film. But OARC first Sunday screenings resumes on Sunday 7 September with¬† Aki Kaurism√§ki‘s darkly amusing Finnish classic Drifting Clouds. Here’s the blurb from IMDB:dc

Tram driver Lauri loses his job. Shortly later, the restaurant where his wife Ilona works as a head waitress is closed. Too proud to receive money from the social welfare system, they strive to find new jobs. But they are completely unlucky and clumsy, one disaster is followed by the next.

Says Ann Hornaday of the Washington Post:

True to his temperament, Kaurismaki has made another funny-sad movie about the tenuousness of life, in all its ambiguity and nonsensical symmetry.

We’ll hopefully have a chance to show some short activist films before the main feature too.

Doors 19:00, film starts 19:15. See you there!
