Friday, March 27 - Sunday, March 29, 2020
VIRIDIANA was originally scheduled to screen Fri Mar 27 – Sun Mar 29 in the Winter 2020 season of “Weekend Classics: Luis Buñuel,” but the screenings have been canceled due to the unexpected closure of the theater on March 14, in order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.
Banned in Spain and denounced by the Vatican, Luis Buñuel’s irreverent vision of life as a beggar’s banquet is regarded by many as his masterpiece. In it, novice nun Viridiana does her utmost to maintain her Catholic principles, but her lecherous uncle and a motley assemblage of paupers force her to confront the limits of her idealism. Winner of the Palme d’or at the 1961 Cannes Film Festival, VIRIDIANA is as audacious today as ever.
