"The best film of 2010! Sublime!"—J. Hoberman, Village Voice

At 102 years of age, Manoel de Oliveira is not only the oldest working filmmaker but the only active filmmaker to have started working in the silent era! And he's still one of today's most vital filmmakers as evidenced by this latest effort. The Strange Case of Angelica is an enchanting tale about a young photographer who falls madly in love with a woman he can never have, except in his dreams. Summoned to take the last photograph of Angelica, a young bride who mysteriously passed away, the photographer finds that the woman comes to life when he looks through his lens. From that moment, he will be haunted by Angelica day and night. (94 mins., 35mm)
