CInema BFS presents three films with art as the theme

BFS presents “Art in Cinema”, a film festival between March 9 and 11. Alfred Hitchcock's “Spellbound” will be screened on Friday, March 9. Starring Gregory Peck and Ingrid Bergman, the movie promises to be a typical Hitchcock psychological mystery thriller where a female psychiatrist protects the identity of an amnesia patient accused of murder while attempting to recover his memory.

Ronald Neame's “The Horse's Mouth” will be screened on Saturday, March 10.”The Horse's Mouth” is a story of a crooked muralist Gulley Jimson (played by Alec Guinness) who is broke, difficult, conniving and uncouth. The visions in his head may not really satisfy him when realized, but the quest continues, for the perfect wall.

The final film is “The Mill And The Cross” directed by Lech Majewski, which will be played on Sunday, March 11. The film is set inside a painting, specifically “The Way to Calvary” (1564) by Pieter Bruegel the Elder. Pieter Bruegel (Rutger Hauer) is the main character in the film which takes turns following him as he decides how his painting will take shape and who will be in it and also follows the local peasants who go about their daily business in middle of 16th century Flanders.

The festival is open to all, shows start at 6.30 pm. The films will be screened at the BFS Office, No. 33/1-9, Thyagraju Layout, Jaibharath Nagar, M.S. Nagar. For more information, contact 9886060096.
