Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road – THE LEFT-HANDED WOMAN

Left-Handed Woman

“Writer-director Handke and producer Wenders present a new digital restoration of this exquisite—and little seen—film of the 1970s. A married woman living in the suburbs of Paris separates from her husband and begins adjusting to a life alone. She translates Flaubert, putters around the kitchen, picks up her father from the train station, and hikes with her son. As the banal particulars of her daily routine proceed in a rigorously poetic fashion, every spoken word and gesture feels deliberate and momentous. With its austere compositions, minimal camera movement, and delicately restrained performances by Edith Clever and Bruno Ganz, THE LEFT-HANDED WOMAN is a powerful meditation on autonomy, self-preservation, and liberation. Handke cited Chantal Akerman as a key influence when the film premiered at Cannes, though the family dramas of Yasujiro Ozu seem equally apt.”—The Museum of Modern Art. (115 mins.) 

THE LEFT-HANDED WOMAN screens Saturday, March 19 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is being presented as part of the touring Wim Wenders: Portraits Along the Road series.

Tickets available online and at the door.
