The theatre is the classroom 
The screen is the blackboard 
The teacher has left, 
we’re all that we have

This week's lesson explores:

Last Year at Marienbad
1961, dir. Alain Resnais
with Delphine Seyrig, Giorgio Albertazzi, Sacha Pitoëff

An enigmatic dream of modernist art cinema, Last Year at Marienbad is a boldly experimental feature revolving around a nameless man’s attempt to persuade a woman that they had met a year earlier as they wander a baroque European chateâu. Drifting between past and present, truth and fantasy, Last Year at Marienbad remains an evocative meditation on memory, cinema, and reality, shot in gorgeous black-and-white Cinemascope.
