Join us for an event rich in tradition. Every year our team of Cheese Specialist celebrate the century old tradition of cracking into a 100lb wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano by demonstrating this technique simultaneously throughout all of our stores across the country. Did you know that every wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano is cracked in-house for the freshest possible flavor? Join us as we celebrate “the king of cheese” and stick around to sample this amazing cheese just moments after the crack!
As the oldest surviving animated feature, Lotte Reininger’s film goes a long way to proving the relevance of women filmmakers in the history of animation. Die Abenteuer des Prinzen Achmed features a silhouette animation technique Reiniger invented, which involved manipulated cutouts made from cardboard and thin sheets of lead under a camera—a technique she would continue using during the rest of her long filmmaking career.
This semester’s Cinéphile Sundays film series is titled Where Do We Go Now?. Although films made by women have already figured in our Cinéphile Sundays series, the time has come to dedicate a five-film cycle to women directors. The series’ title is the English translation of the title of one the films, Nadine Labaki’s Et maintenant on va où? (2011).
