(Marco Ferreri, 1973) · Marco Ferreri's La Grande Bouffe, is a work of grotesque proportions - aimed at delivering excess and decadence. Four friends unite in a chateau with the express purpose of eating themselves to death. Gorging and overindulging themselves to the limit, they hold a magnificent feast in the villa, engaging in an orgy of sex and consumption. Perverse, controversial, and perhaps reviling, Ferreri's controversial cult film demands to be watched.

(Andrzej Zulawski, 1971) · SPECIAL SCREENING WITH ZULAWSKI COLLABORATOR AND FILM SCHOLAR DANIEL BIRD - Come celebrate the birthday of the beloved cult director Andrezj Zulawski with a very special (and rare!) screening of his breakout first feature, The Third Part of the Night! Doc Films is proud to host noted film scholar and Zulawski expert Daniel Bird, who will lead an introduction and post-screening talk. Daniel Bird worked with Andrzej Zulawski in various capacities over twenty years. In the last year of Zulawski's life, Bird adapted Cosmos into English and produced the restoration of On the Silver Globe.
A shocking feature of dismal slaughter and the grim venture of existence, Zulawski's debut opens with the murder of Michal's family by German soldiers during Poland's occupation. Michal and his father escape into the dark wood only to find their world of escape blistered into a ruthless angelic apocalypse, exploding with the madness of doppelgangers, Nazi labs, and war's atrocities as resistance becomes the only means of regaining heaven in hell.
