New: Bresson - un hommage

A tribute to a great director

In 1901, a man was born who would go on to become one of the most influential filmmakers of his time in his lifetime: Robert Bresson.

Bresson's films are austere in tone but powerful in expression. It is precisely the minimal use of images and sound that invites one to look beyond what is visible on the surface; behind the everyday lies a deeper meaning. To illustrate that, Rialto is screening seven of his films this summer - a tribute to a great director.
