THE RIVER

(1951, Jean Renoir) Growing up in India: 14-year-old Harriet, along with her two friends, gets her first big crush on a wounded vet, then must suffer a death in the family – but life, and the Ganges, go on. Renoir’s adaptation of Rumer Godden’s semi-autobiographical novel was his first in color. 35mm. Approx. 99 min.

Restored by Academy Film Archive, in association with the BFI and Janus Films, with restoration funding provided by Hollywood Foreign Press Association and The Film Foundation.

“A pure masterpiece.”
– André Bazin

“A poetic study of the contact of two civilizations. Renoir does not usurp the position of an insider; he sees India with western eyes – eyes so sensitive and highly trained that his vision of India is a mythic poem set in the midst of the Indian river of life.”
– Pauline Kael

WILD RIVER

(1960, Elia Kazan) Tennessee Valley Authority man Montgomery Clift, bound South to save it, finds derision from the locals, love from the war widow Lee Remick, and obduracy from matriarch Jo Van Fleet, who just won’t leave that scheduled-to-be-flooded farm. Filmed magnificently on location in CinemaScope. DCP. Approx. 110 min.

Restored by Academy Film Archive and 20th Century Fox. Funding provided by The Film Foundation.

“Catches something timeless and essential in the human spirit and shapes it in the American image.”
