The Pacific Film Archive salutes one of the film world's greatest institutions, the Cinematheque Francaise, founded in 1936.
The series, running Fridays and Sundays through November, includes films by important silent-era directors, among them a rediscovered film by American director King Vidor ("The Family Honor"); Andre Antoine's beautiful, naturalistic 1921 film "The Earth," based on an Emile Zola novel; and pioneering filmmaker Albert Capellani's "Germinal" (1913), also drawn from Zola. French cinema in later years is also represented.
Dates of the screenings are Nov. 1, 3, 8, 10, 15, 17 and 22. Reduced-rate parking is available in the lot across Durant Avenue from PFA.
