Special Events in April:



Friday, April 1 - 7:30 PM

Opening Night of Cinema Croatia (April 1-7) Los Angeles Premiere:

THE HORSEMAN (KONJANIK), 2003, Vestaco/Telefilm/ HRT/ MK Production, 136 min. Director Branko Ivanda’s terrific, full-blooded epic of renegade cavalrymen, black-robed priests and passionate virgins willing to risk all for love - of Man and God – is set along the forbidding, wind-scoured border between the Ottoman Turk and Venetian Christian Empires during the 1750’s. The story revolves around two brothers -- Petar (Niksa Kuselj), known as "The Howler" for his wild temperament, and the younger, more thoughtful Ivan (Borko Peric) - both forced to witness the savage murder of their parents. Years later, Petar has become a fearsome horseman in the service of the merciless Venetian captain who murdered their parents, while his brother has taken his vows as an Orthodox priest. The uneasy balance between Islamic and Christian worlds is upset when Petar apparently converts to the Muslim faith - and falls madly in love with the spectacularly beautiful daughter (Zrinka Cvitesic) of the local Ottoman pasha. The illicit love-affair between the savage Petar and the white-veiled Muslim woman sets the stage for a truly legendary battle between opposing empires and world-views. Discussion following with director Branko Ivanda & Actress Zrinka Cvitesic. An Egyptian Theatre Exclusive!

Celebrating the Teen in Us All!

Join us for a booksigning of the new teen novel, Boy Proof (Candlewick Press) with local young adult fiction novelist and Cinematheque staffer Cecil Castellucci, followed by a screening of the original BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER feature. Boy Proof is set in Los Angeles and among other locations that our teen heroine (a cinephile and sci-fi enthusiast) frequents, is the American Cinematheque, where she volunteers! Boy Proof was just chosen as Border’s Books "Original Voices Feb. 2005".The booksigning will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 PM in the Lobby, followed by a screening of:

BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER (1992, 20th Century Fox, 86 min.) directed by Fran Rubel Kuzui. Kristy Swanson plays Buffy, a popular high school cheerleader who is unwittingly chosen to kill vampires. (This feature version was the inspiration for the later, wildly-popular "Buffy" TV series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.)

Sneak Preview! ZOMBIE HONEYMOON, 2004, 83 min., USA. David Gebroe’s smart tale of love and commitment -- in the face of one partner’s serious "issues" -- is not the B-movie horror the title implies. A young honeymooning couple’s relationship is understandably strained when the groom (Graham Sibley) is bitten by a zombie. Despite his uncontrollable anti-social behavior, his bride (Tracy Coogan) tries desperately to stay by his side, even though he is no longer the sweet vegetarian she fell in love with. Exec-produced by Larry Fessenden (HABIT, WENDIGO).

"The first truly romantic flesh-eating corpse movie." – John Landis

"Zombie Honeymoon will move your heart, then tear it out!" – Fangoria Magazine

"…scores simultaneously as romantic, tragic, grotesque and screamingly funny." – Ronnie Scheib, Variety

With animated short film "Dentist," 10 min., 2004 directed by Signe Baumane. Discussion following with director David Gebroe.
