Presenting: a live soundtrack to Agnieszka Holland’s Total Eclipse
Saturday December 16
Doors at 7pm, Film at 7:30pm
Erotic, dramatic, and steeped in absinthe… this cinematic gem is based on the life of the poet and pre-punk, Arthur Rimbaud who changed the face of poetry forever. Written directly from letters and poems exchanged between Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, this film gives a historically accurate depiction of their torrential romance and creative ambitions. This showing of Total Eclipse will be accompanied by a live, original soundtrack performed by avant-garde musicians hailing from all corners of North Carolina.
With an introduction and reading from local poet: Marta Núñez-Pouzols.
Starring Leonardo DiCaprio & David Thewlis. 111 minutes. Rated R.
