Spotlight on Michael Haneke


An Aero Theatre Exclusive!

For the past 20 years, Austrian filmmaker Michael Haneke has been holding a mirror up to society’s darkest, most frightening tendencies. In films like BENNY’S VIDEO, FUNNY GAMES and CACHE, he dissects the malaise at the heart of contemporary life with an unflinching eye, forcing the spectator to participate in the storytelling process. Join us for a sneak preview of his latest film, THE WHITE RIBBON, which strikes out in new, more emotionally resonant directions yet - in its own way - is just as subversive as his early work.



Thursday, December 3 - 7:30 PM

Michael Haneke Double Feature: BENNY’S VIDEO, 1992, Wega Film, 105 min. Dir. Michael Haneke. Obsessed with recording mundane street life with his video camera, 14-year-old Benny ends up videotaping himself murdering a girlfriend. The quiet teen runs the tape for his stunned parents, who choose to conceal his crime. In German with English subtitles. Clip

FUNNY GAMES, 1997, Kino, 108 min. Dir. Michael Haneke. The handsome Paul and the overweight Peter force themselves into the happy life of a bourgeois couple and their son as they unpack at their lakeside paradise. A spine-chilling portrait of an Austrian family imprisoned by a pair of sadistic killers, FUNNY GAMES seldom shows any act of violence but maintains its grip on our emotions. In German with English subtitles. Trailer


This film has been pulled from our schedule and will not screen. If you bought a ticket a full refund will be issued at the box office.

Thursday, December 17 - 7:30 PM

Sneak Preview! WHITE RIBBON (DAS WEISSE BAND - EINE DEUTSCHE KINDERGESCHICHTE), 2009, Sony Pictures Classics, 144 min. Dir. Michael Haneke. In a village in Protestant northern Germany on the eve of World War I, a series of mysterious crimes sets off a firestorm of gossip and suspicion and exposes local secrets. As trust erodes among the townspeople, it becomes harder and harder to determine who is behind the strange incidents. In German with English subtitles. Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Official Website | Trailer
