Moscow Film Society: Days of Heaven

Tuesday, February 20 at 7 PM

“Almost incontestably the most gorgeously photographed film ever made.”
— Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
Moscow Film Society presents DAYS OF HEAVEN as part of their Natural Light series, showcasing transcendent cinematography from the 70s. One-of-a-kind filmmaker-philosopher Terrence Malick has created some of the most visually arresting films of the last century, and his glorious period tragedy Days of Heaven, featuring Oscar-winning cinematography by Nestor Almendros, stands out among them. In the mid-1910s, a Chicago steelworker (Richard Gere) accidentally kills his supervisor, and flees with his girlfriend (Brooke Adams) and his little sister (Linda Manz) to the Texas panhandle, where they find work harvesting wheat in the fields of a stoic farmer (Sam Shepard). A love triangle, a swarm of locusts, a hellish fire—Malick captures it all with dreamlike authenticity, creating a timeless American idyll that is also a gritty evocation of turn-of-the-century labor.
