BRAZIL (dir. Terry Gilliam, 1985, 145 min.) Ex-Python Gilliam’s dystopian, science fiction satire has downtrodden government cog Sam Lowry (Jonathan Pryce) fleeing his mind-numbing existence in winged-search of a woman from his daydreams. Sam is assigned the unenviable task of setting right the systems error that caused the accidental death of a man erroneously thought to be arch terrorist and air conditioning man Harry Tuttle (Robert De Niro). Part George Orwell, part Fritz Lang, part Monty Python, BRAZIL satirizes a dark, dysfunctional, bureaucratic, dehumanizing world we have come to call home.

Come once, or come every week. Tuesday nights at 7:00 in the Landis Cinema, Buck Hall.

Shuttle bus service to/from College Hill. All are welcome. Open to the Public. Popcorn. Free.
