LA DOUBLE VIE DE MONSIEUR G.

Dir. Catherine Galodé (France) 13:02 mins.

This film explores the making of and ideas behind Gilbert Garcin’s photographs. In conversation with photographer Christian Ramade and critic Jean-Claude Carbonne, Garcin examines how his work and the character he embodies allows him to lead a “double life.”
Please note: this film is in French with no subtitles.

CITIZEN KANE

Dir. Orson Welles (USA: 1941), 119 mins.

This is the story of Charles Foster Kane. The film opens with a long shot of Xanadu - the private estate of Kane, one of the world's richest and most powerful men. In the middle of the estate is a castle. We see, inside the castle, a dying man examining a winter scene within a crystal ball. As he drops it, it smashes, and one word is heard - "Rosebud..." Pieces of newsreel-like footage detail how Kane amassed his fortune, turning full circle in the end.
