IU Cinema: "Z" film

A pulse-pounding political thriller, Z was one of the cinematic sensations of the late ’60s and remains among the most vital dispatches from that hallowed era of filmmaking. This Academy-Award® winner is loosely based on the 1963 assassination of Greek left-wing activist Gregoris Lambrakis, whose public murder amid a violent demonstration was covered up by military and government officials. Jean-Louis Trintignant is the tenacious magistrate determined not to let them get away with it. Z remains a technically audacious and emotionally gripping masterpiece. In English, Russian, and French with English subtitles. (35mm Presentation) PRESIDENT'S CHOICE: REPORTING CONFLICT
