Seasonal Special Happenings

Willem Dafoe Weekend

When: Thu., June 5 2014

Beginning this evening, the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque kicks off three days of programming devoted to one of the weirdest and most versatile actors working today: Willem Dafoe, whose penis we all saw desecrated in Lars von Trier’s Antichrist. The weekend culminates in a Saturday screening of the little-known Shadow of the Vampire (2000) in which Dafoe portrays the fiendish method actor Max Schreck during the filming of the 1922 German silent film Nosferatu. But tonight, the Cinemathque will host an off-site screening at the Capitol Theatre of a Greek film that has never been shown in Ohio. It’s called The Dust of Time, and follows a Greek filmmaker (Dafoe) as he tries to tell the story of his mother and her star-crossed love with two men across Europe during the second half of the 20th century. Tonight’s screening is $12. (Saturday’s screening, followed by a Q&A with Dafoe, is $20). (Sam Allard)
