Fidelity and Betrayal: Variations on the Remake
Date + TimeSunday, April 15, 2007
LocationPhyllis Wattis Theater
All That Heaven Allows, Douglas Sirk, 1955, 89 min.
Ali: Fear Eats the Soul, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, 1974, 93 min.
Sirk's tale of two lovers whose differences in age and social stature ignite the disapproval and derision of those around them provides genetic fodder for Fassbinder, but the films maintain very distinct storylines. While on some points the directors' examinations of their characters overlap, each develops a finely honed focus: Sirk, on subtle sources of pain and isolation; Fassbinder, on the intensity sparked by juxtaposing markedly contrasting elements.
$7 general; $5 SFMOMA members, students, and seniors. Tickets are available at the Museum (with no surcharge) or online.
