FORMAT SYSTEMS INC. presents our new fortnightly Film Night.

A series of double feature film events curated by Thomas Moran and Sofia Athanasopolous (aka. DJ Baby Angel).

THIS TUESDAY:

6PM: DESIGN FOR LIVING, 1933, ERNEST LUBITSCH

This black and white American comedy stars Miriam Hopkins as a commerical artist; Gilda Farrell. She shares an apartment with two Americans who both fall in love with her. Unable to choose between the two, she proposes she live with them as a friend, muse, and critic—with the understanding they will not have sex.

"A woman cannot decide between two men who love her, and the trio agree to try living together in a platonic friendly relationship."

8PM: VIVE L'AMOUR, 1994, TSAI MING-LIANG

This Taiwainese No Wave film explores the sensation of isolation. It is a slow-paced film with sparse dialogue, about urban alienation, centering on three people who unknowingly share an apartment in Taipei.
