Event Details

Sunday, April 15, 2018
2 p.m.
Cast: Olimpia Carlisi, Philippe Léotard, Juliet Berto
After the glad-handing, married Swiss politician Paul (Léotard) falls for an emotionally-withdrawn Italian café waitress (Carlisi), his campaign goes into a subsequent tailspin. Tanner stages the fallout in strikingly stark, formal style, with Brechtian breaks including interstitial date-keeping cartoons, disjunctive landscape shots, and musical interludes by Patrick Moraz.
