Church of Film presents Surrealism of the Low Countries



Church of Film is a weekly gathering for the reverence and worship of cinema. Our hope is to bring the long lost, forgotten, overlooked, obscure or unavailable to a hungry audience unable to get their fill from the local theater offerings. And in so doing, in the cozy darkness of our vintage theater, we build a like-minded community of the curious and the cine-obsessed. All are welcome, as are your creative suggestions.

Other locations include Century Bar on Sandy Boulevard and the North Star Ballroom. Check the CofF Facebook page for more information about other screenings.

Surrealism of the Low Countries

Awash in the dreamy eroticism of the sea, under the spell of Rene Magritte and the artists drinking at La Fleur en Papier Doré, Belgian and Dutch artists captured their land and their sublimated desires on film throughout the ages! This program of avant-garde shorts includes legendary Surrealist prankster and Magritte collaborator Marcel Mariën's only film, IMITATION OF CINEMA (1960), Count Henri D'Ursel's notorious THE PEARL (1929), Ernst Moerman's playful dream-riff on masked-man crime serials, MR. FANTOMAS (1937), and many more rare and delightful treasures! Enjoy a few wet dreams, so to speak.
