Under the Sun

Special Premiere Screening!

(2015) dir Vitaliy Manskiy w/Lee Zin-Mi [106 min; DCP]
ahtd-290A fascinating portrait of one North Korean girl and her parents in the year as she prepares to join the Korean Children’s Union on Kim Jong-Il’s birthday. Russian filmmaker Vitaly Mansky negotiated for a decade to gain access to the country and, though he gave authorities complete control over his script, his handlers had no idea that he left his cameras rolling at all times, capturing the surreal, true face of life under the notoriously rigid regime.

NYT Critics Pick NYT Critics’ Pick “The movie raises disquieting questions, including a few that Mr. Mansky might not have meant to.” – Glenn Kenny, New York Times

“There’s a terrible wonder in this rare glimpse inside a country that has tried to empty itself of all thought, all commerce and all civil society — of pretty much everything except an especially lame version of hero worship and despotism.” – Andrew O’Hehir, Salon.com

Dear Brattle Friends,

You guys continue to humble and amaze us with your outpouring of support!

Thanks to you, we have now raised more than $35,000 from over 400 individual donors!

Thank you for helping to keep our staff paid and The Brattle alive during this scary time.

I hope that you are all feeling healthy.

As we remain closed, our preliminary goal is to raise four weeks of operating support, or $65,000, to ensure we can continue to pay all of our staff, and other overhead through April 7. As things develop, our timeline for being closed and fundraising goal may change, but our ultimate goal of re-opening The Brattle stays firm.

With your help, this goal will become a reality.

Stay healthy,

Ivy, Ned & The Brattle Theatre Team
