FREE. Wednesday, Sept. 30th. 8pm. Are we happier with or without our memories? Marcel Carne's (Children of Paradise) 1951 opus, JULIETTE OR THE KEY OF DREAMS, asks why love can haunt us so long after hope has left. Michel finds himself imprisoned for embezzlement after sneaking some money for a trip with his new love, Juliette. But as night falls, the prison doors open for him, leading him to a sun-dappled countryside and a remote village whose inhabitants carry on their lives without memories. There Michel must find Juliette again, and save her from the clutches of the savage Bluebeard. A dreamy, often melancholic film that drifts from sad realities to fairy tale reverie, Carne's film was misunderstood at the time—today we may appreciate it as a timeless poem about the tragedy of love and the prison of our own memory.
