Austin Film Society Cinema presents Underground
Emir Kusturica's sprawling epic about the post-WWII history of Yugoslavia won the Palme D’Or at Cannes and is rightly considered a modern classic. A major cinematic achievement, it brings to the screen both the harrowing side of war and revolution and its surreal, deeply absurd side. Underground has only rarely been screened in the U.S. during the last few decades. This new restoration will certainly vault it into the higher echelons of stateside esteem and appreciation.
