Chlotrudis Monday Afternoon at the Movies + Indie Film Round-Up, January 15 - 21

Hello Chlotrudis Members!

This week we're doing something a little different as we check out THE WHITE RIBBON, the latest film by German director Michael Haneke (CACHE, THE PIANO TEACHER). Since the film is 140 minutes long and starts at 8pm, we're going to take advantage of the Martin Luther King holiday to catch THE WHITE RIBBON on Monday, 1:55pm at the Kendall Square Cinema. If you have to work on Martin Luther King Day, I apologize; otherwise I hope you'll join us for this Chlotrudis Awards-winning filmmaker's latest film.

The setting of The White Ribbon is a village in Protestant northern Germany from 1913 to 1914, on the eve of World War I. The story revolves around the children and teenagers of a choir run by the village schoolteacher, and their families: the baron, the steward, the pastor, the doctor, the midwife, the tenant farmers—a cross-section of the entire community. Strange accidents and misfortunes befall the citizens of Eichwald, gradually taking on the character of a punishment ritual. But who is behind it all? Winner of three awards at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, including the prestigious Palme d'Or, this provocative and haunting film from writer-director Michael Haneke (Funny Games, Caché, The Piano Teacher) is stunningly photographed in black and white. (Fully subtitled)

Director: Michael Haneke

Cast: Susanne Lothar, Ulrich Tukur, Theo Trebs, Michael Schenk
