In Memory of the 9/11 victims, including actress Berry Berenson
Original 35mm print! We are pleased, humbled and excited to be able to present a very rare 35mm showing of one of the great independent American films of the age of great American movies, the 70s. Alan Rudolph’s REMEMBER MY NAME features great performances from a very tough Geraldine Chaplin, Anthony Perkins (Berenson’s real-life husband) and Berry Berenson, (Marissa’s sister), who only appeared in four films, and who died tragically in the attacks on 9/11. The film’s other star is 80-plus-at-the-time blues singer Alberta Hunter, whose music is central to the film’s story, in which Chaplin plays a mysterious woman who stalks Perkins’ hardhat worker for reasons not immediately clear. A latter-day film noir with style to burn, REMEMBER MY NAME is NOT AVAILABLE on DVD, VHS or any other format. “It strikes me as the most exciting Hollywood fantasy to come along in quite some time. The audacity of teaming Chaplin with a black octogenarian blues singer in an audiovisual “duet”… allows both women to wail, and the results are spellbinding.”—Jonathan Rosenbaum. R. 94 Min.
