This is a very rare find, and luckily it has three days of screenings: Dec 6, 9, and 13. It is Sontag's first film as she transitioned from writer to filmmaker. It's a thought-provoking film which touches on an array of themes, with a a strong highlight on intellectual power balance and sexual politics.

A short synopsis: Dr. Arthur Bauer (Lars Ekborg), a German Marxist revolutionary who has more or less retired to Sweden with his younger Italian wife, Francesca (Adriana Asti); Tomas (Gösta Ekman), whom Bauer hires to move in and edit his diaries and correspondence; and Ingrid (Agneta Ekmanner), Tomas’s girlfriend. Soon enough, the older couple is subjecting the younger couple to a series of game-like dares involving seduction, power plays, and possibly, murder.

Please note that this is a cash only venue.
