SHADOWS by John Cassavetes

on Wed, 03/09/2011 - 21:56

This week at Rabbit!
we are screening a landmark movie that inspired the birth of American independent films, John Cassavetes' first, SHADOWS. Shot in the late 50s in Harlem, with handheld camera and semi-improvised dialogue, it breathes the themes of the Beat Generation jazz and touches realistically the subject of interracial relationships, still very taboo at the time. 

As an homage to our dear city! Come cozy up in the couches for a evening of drinks and authentic NYC jazz.

opens at 8 (movie starts around 8:30)

Dear Rabbit fans,
this week we are jumping out of our animation series towards the visually exuberant world of Jean-Luc Godard's pulp thriller 'Pierrot le Fou'. Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo, car crashes, pop consumption and striking colors are subjects of the French New Wave director's mainly improvised feature film based on Lionel White’s noir novel 'Obsession'. 

Come cozy up in the gallery couches.
Bring all the friends and booze you want!
