The Chicago Cinema Society is very proud to present the only North American 35mm print of Alejandro Jodorowsky's masterpiece "Santa Sangre." A film which Roger Ebert cites in his 4 star review as "a throwback to the golden age, to the days when filmmakers had bold individual visions and were not timidly trying to duplicate the latest mass-market formulas."
Next, we will be presenting the wonderfully innovative animated short BOBBY YEAH by animator Robert Morgan. Bobby Yeah has won Best British Film at the London Animation Festival and Best Animated Short at the Fantasia International Film Festival. We are proud to provide this film with its Midwest Premiere.
BALADA TRISTE DE TROMPETA (THE LAST CIRCUS)
“The Last Circus” was awarded the Silver Lion prize for Best Director and Best Script at the 2010 Venice International Film Festival by Quentin Tarantino, President of the Jury. The film also received the bulk of the nominations at the Goya Awards - the most prominent film awards in Spain. It had been nominated in 15 categories including Best Film, Best Script, and Best Actor – to name just a few. The Chicago Cinema Society is proud to present the Chicago Theatrical (35mm print) Premiere of Alex de la Iglesia's incredible new film.
