THE PARADISE PRESENTS: The Last Days of Summer...

About this event

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”

-John Steinbeck

Summer 2022, like all good things, is coming to the end. So why not spend a few more days in Paradise as we present six films to bid it adieu? And what better retreat than a masterpiece of otherworldly imagination? A mysteriously linked pair of young women find their daily lives preempted by a strange boudoir melodrama that plays itself out in a hallucinatory parallel reality in Jacques Rivette's new wave epic CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING- a magical end to our summer in Paradise...

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” meets the freewheeling invention of French New Wave gamesman Jacques Rivette in this giddy surrealist fantasia. When magician Céline (Juliet Berto) meets librarian Julie (Dominique Labourier), it’s not long before they are launched through the looking glass and straight into a labyrinthine comic adventure involving a haunted house, psychotropic candy, and a murder mystery as, all the while, the line between illusion and reality grows ever fainter.
