OCU, can you see ...

... by the projector’s early light?

Oklahoma City University has announced the lineup for the 30th-anniversary installment of its Film Series. It kicks off Sunday, Sept. 25 with the 1957 Oscar-winning musical romance “Black Orpheus,” (poster pictured) colorfully directed by Marcel Camus.

The rest of the scheduled films are:
• Lee Chang-dong’s “Poetry,” Oct. 9
• George Sluizer’s “The Vanishing,” Oct. 23
• Ken Loach’s “Kes,” Nov. 6
• Jean Renoir’s “The River,” Jan. 22, 2012
• Majid Majidi’s “Children of Heaven,” Feb. 5, 2012
• Claudia Llosa’s “The Milk of Sorrow,” Feb. 19, 2012
• Kenji Mizoguchi's “Sansho the Bailiff,” March 4, 2012

“Poetry” recently showed at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, and I can vouch for the South Korean drama’s excellence. “The Vanishing” is sly programming for the pre-Halloween slot, as the Danish thriller from 1988 bears one chiller of an ending (skip its 1993 subpar American remake, however).

All films are free, and shown in the Kerr-McGee Auditorium in the college’s Meinders School of Business, N.W. 27th Street and McKinley Avenue. —Rod Lott
