Location: Bartos Screening Room

With director Sara Summa in person 

Dir. Sara Summa. Germany. 2023, 108 mins. DCP. In French, Italian, and German with English subtitles. With Sara Summa, Robin Summa, Lupo Piero Summa. In Summa’s charming sophomore feature, siblings Arthur and Diana are on a meandering road trip, along with Diana’s two-year-old son, Lupo, through France, Germany, and Italy. Their beat-up car, which has been in the family since they were children, brings out deep-seated family dynamics that will feel familiar to older sisters and younger brothers. Cinematographer Faraz Fesharaki, shooting on MiniDV, Betacam, and 16mm, and printing the final film on 16mm, gives Arthur&Diana a warm, textural, unique look. The film itself also blends forms as a refreshing work of autofiction, in which Summa plays Diana, and acts alongside her real-life brother and son. At its core, the film is also a portrayal of a woman grappling with and at times resisting her role as mother, sister, and wife. Special Jury Prize, Meeting Points Competition, 2023 Valladolid International Film Festival (SEMINCI). U.S. premiere 

Preceded by:
A Running Woman 
Dir. Ojoboca (Anja Dornieden and Juan David González Monroy). Germany, 3 mins. 16mm. “Hollis Frampton stated that he had created three long films and one short film before releasing his film Process Red (1966). One of these earlier films was titled A Running Man. He described it as ‘…a landscape film that was held together as a picaresque by an unidentified man who ran through the shots, who might appear anywhere in the space, go through it in some way, and exit—all at full tilt.’ He mentioned that the film had been ‘projected to death.’ Inspired by this concept, we decided to create our own version of the film, adhering to the general premise outlined by Frampton. In a nod to the fate of Frampton’s film, our version was shot in color reversal and we are projecting the original print.” —Ojoboca World premiere
