Ten art films from around the world will be screened at Grace Street Theater for free from now through May. The Cinema Program from VCUarts is presenting the free film series. The movies will be projected in 35mm on Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
The 1st movie will be Police, Adjective (2009) by Corneliu Porumboiu on January 31, 2012 at 7PM:
Cristi (Dragos Bucur) is a young undercover cop who undergoes a crisis of conscience when he is pressured to arrest a teenager who offers hash to classmates. Not wanting to ruin the life of a young man he considers merely irresponsible, Cristi must either allow the arrest to be a burden on his conscience, or face censure by his self-serious superior (Vlad Ivanov of 4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS), for whom the word “conscience” has an
entirely different meaning.
Porumboiu approaches his story with the exacting patience of a master ironist, culminating in one of the most unexpected comedic payoffs in years, – an extraordinary dissection of language that affirms his reputation as one of the most exciting new talents in European cinema.
