As part of our Guest curator series we welcome Kathleen Sachs as she presents:
Agnès Varda’s Daguerréotypes (1976)
Synopsis: Portraits of the people that occupy the small shops of the
Rue Daguerre, Paris, where the filmmaker lived.
About Kat Sachs: is a cinephile, critic and programmer living in Logan Square. She is the associate editor of CINE-FILE.info, where she writes about film on a weekly basis; she’s also an occasional contributor to the Chicago Reader. Highlights of her programming endeavors include a Barbara Hammer retrospective and screenings of Dan Sallitt’s HONEYMOON and ALL THE SHIPS AT SEA, the Chicago premiere of Joanna Arnow’s I HATE MYSELF 🙂, and a ten-week Frederick Wiseman series at Doc Films, entirely on 16mm, as well as a one-off screening of Wiseman’s six-hour NEAR DEATH, also on 16mm. On average, she watches two movies per day, often with her husband, critic and occasional-programmer Ben Sachs, and their two cats, Squeeks and Chloe.
For the months of April and May the Guest curator series invites independent film programmers to Comfort Film to share their vision of what film means to them.
No BYOB please.
The Comfort Station Curator Series is programmed by Raul Benitez and Nando Espinosa Herrera.
