Film Screening of  Mysteries of Lisbon
adapted from Portuguese novel Wednesday, December 21st
12:30pm - 5:00pm

"Raúl Ruiz's majestic adaption of Portuguese novelist Camilo Castelo Branco's 1854 romantic epic Mistérios de Lisboa&mdashla brilliantly twisting tapestry of interlocking fates and identities--is this master filmmaker's final work. As such, Ruiz has crafted a beautiful monument to the narrative cinema: visually complex, telling a story of machinations and maneuvers that are never exactly as they seem."
