Maison du Bonheur


Location: Redstone Theater

With Sofia Bohdanowicz in person

Dir. Sofia Bohdanowicz. 2017, 62 mins. Sofia Bohdanowicz’s second feature is an intimate, 16mm-shot portrait of a 77-year-old widowed Parisian astrologer named Juliane Sellam, who has lived in the same Montmartre flat for the last half-century. Following Sellam in her daily life while Bohdanowicz muses about her process on the soundtrack, the film becomes an assertion of the sanctity of simple domestic pleasures—of pleasure itself—that in today’s mephitic atmosphere is tantamount to an act of artistic resistance.
This film is presented as part of a double-feature with Never Eat Alone (which screens at 7:00 p.m.). One admission price for both films.
Tickets: $15 ($11 seniors and students / free for Museum members at the Film Lover and Kids Premium levels and above). Order tickets online. (Members may contact [email protected] with questions regarding online reservations.)
