MWPAI Film Series: The Souvenir

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2 and 7:30 pm

Directed by Joanna Hogg, 2019, United Kingdom, Rated R, 120 min.

A shy but ambitious film student (Honor Swinton Byrne) begins to find her voice as an artist while navigating a turbulent courtship with a charismatic but untrustworthy man (Tom Burke). She defies her protective mother (Tilda Swinton) and concerned friends as she slips deeper and deeper into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship that comes dangerously close to destroying her dreams. From acclaimed writer/director Joanna Hogg comes an enigmatic and personal portrait of the artist as a young woman, combining passionate emotions and exquisite aesthetics into a lush, dreamlike story of young adulthood and first love. At once enrapturing and mysteriously unsettling—and featuring a profoundly layered breakout performance by Honor Swinton Byrne—The Souvenir is an essential and enduring film from one of our most distinctive and exciting filmmakers.

MWPAI Film Series: Walking on Water

Location: Sinnott Family - Bank of Utica Auditorium

2 and 7:30 pm

Directed by Andrey Paounov, 2019, Italy/United States, Not Rated, 105 min.

Ten years after the passing of his wife and creative partner, Jeanne-Claude, renowned environmental artist Christo sets out to realize The Floating Piers, a project they conceived together many years before. We follow his visionary quest to install a wide golden walkway floating across the scenic Italian alpine Lake Iseo, looking like a heavenly dream but sturdy enough to support hundreds of thousands of people. Christo, now in his eighties, and Vladimir Yavachev, his stalwart director of operations, are passionate and stubborn about getting everything right despite bad weather, burdensome bureaucracy and a turnout of thousands more people than were expected. Funny at times, inspiring, and breathtakingly beautiful, the film takes the viewer on an intimate journey into Christo’s world amid mounting insanity—from complex dealings between art and state politics to engineering challenges, logistical nightmares, and the sheer force of mother nature. Through spectacular aerial views and fly-on-the-wall camerawork, we watch the artist’s extraordinary vision unfold, and get to know the man chasing it.
