Art Thursday: Last Year at Marienbad Free Film Screening

6–8pm
USF School of Music Barness Recital Hall
Facebook event

Join us for a free screening of this French New Wave masterpiece. USFCAM Director Margaret Miller will lead a discussion with USF faculty about the film and its pertinence to the David Claerbout exhibition, including a short introductory presentation and a post film conversation in the lobby with refreshments.

Ominous organ music resounds and the scope camera tracks through the seemingly endless halls of a baroque grand hotel as X (Giorgio Albertazzi) tries to persuade an initially disbelieving A (Delphine Seyrig) that they had met the year before. With dizzying time shifts and flashbacks, Last Year at Marienbad is the ultimate puzzle film.
