      Woody Before Allen followed by Roth on Roth

      Woody Before Allen Short/Russia/13 minutes/2012 Directed by Masha Vasyukova An adventurous meditation on past and present, on two former Konigsbergs - a man and a city that no longer use the name: one a Russian city which was renamed Kaliningrad, another a renowned film director who changed his name to Woody Allen. To commemorate the bizarre connection between these two former Konigsbergs, Masha Vasyukova, a native of the city makes it her mission to put up a statue in Kaliningrad in honor of Woody Allen. Playing with Roth on Roth (Philip Roth, sanse complexe) Documentary/France/52 minutes/2011 Directed by William Karel In this surprisingly candid documentary, Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Philip Roth offers unprecedented access to his prolific career. The often elusive and reclusive author provides expansive insights into his writing methods, reflections on mortality, struggles with depression and often controversial body of work. The scandalous content of such novels as Portnoys Complaint and Goodbye, Columbus made Roth a lightning rod for criticism. Roth draws heavily on his life experiences and Jewish upbringing, while insisting, I dont write Jewish, I write American. This intimate film is a rare and moving portrait of America's greatest living writer.

      Cost: 9.00 to 12.00
