Ciné Salon’s Spring 2018 will address a selection of outstanding visionary movies important to the history of the medium that for a variety of reasons are little seen. It is hoped our efforts will renew appreciation in these moving image gems.Little known outside of esoteric documentary film circles, Armenian director Artavazd Pelechian creates “distant montages” of mid-20th century life. The cadenced combinations of riveting images welded to elegiac music will haunt you forever. Please do not miss this once-in-a-lifetime presentation of remarkable cinema.

“One of the few authentic geniuses in the world of cinema." –Sergei Parajanov
