Event Description

Thursdays at the Theatre: Paradise
Russian Federation / 2016 / Russian, German & French with English subtitles / 132 min / Drama

"...the great Russian DoP Alexander Simonov...works chiaroscuro wonders with what the end credits identify as a combination of 35mm and 16mm stock, his 4:3 black-and-white images and complex lighting set-ups often harking back to golden-age monochrome cinematography." – Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter

Synopsis Olga is a beautiful Russian countess and member of the French Resistance; Jules is a French-Nazi collaborator who is assigned to investigate her case; and Helmut is a handsome, high-ranking, yet naïve German SS officer who once fell madly in love with Olga and meets her again when she is shipped to a concentration camp. While they recount their stories, the film drifts between the bloody end of World War II and the gilded, halcyon days when their destinies first crossed. Victim, bystander, or monster, Konchalovsky collapses these identities, offering a new perspective on the Holocaust. Shot in stunning black and white, the film depicts the morally complex choices that one must make during dark times in search of PARADISE look at the past and its lessons for the present.

All films start at 7:00pm, located in the Historic Yuma Theatre, 254 Main Street, downtown Yuma.
