The Alliance FranГ§aise of Johannesburg will feature an outdoor movie screening of director Bernardo Bertolucci's controversial 1972 drama - Last Tango in Paris - to launch its new open air cinema tomorrow.
In the film, Marlon Brando (who improvised most of his lines) plays a middle- aged US businessman who has a sordid affair, which is based entirely on sex, with a young Parisian woman (played by Maria Schneider).
The dark torrid masterpiece about love and grief will be screened at 7.30pm, but the gates will be open the whole day prior to the outdoor film, so go and make a picnic of it. Alternatively, you can order a picnic basket, but that'll cost you R280. The screening itself is free.
The outdoor film will be followed by a tango demonstration by Tango Speakeasy.
The open air cinema screening is the first of Dibuka's regular screenings dedicated to the seventh art, featuring retrospectives of classic and contemporary repertory cinema, thematic evenings, round tables and guest personalities being given carte blanche to select and comment on films.
Dibuka is the result of a partnership between the French Embassy in SA, the French Institute of SA and the Alliance FranГ§aise of Johannesburg . To learn about its multimedia collections see www.ifas.org. za/dibuka. Info on the screening: 011-646-1115.
