Sunday 16th April . 3pm . Ordet
(Dir: C.T.Dreyer, 126 mins, 1955, Denmark, 12A)
A farmer’s family is torn apart by faith, sanctity, and love—one child believes he’s Jesus Christ, a second proclaims himself agnostic, and the third falls in love with a fundamentalist’s daughter. Putting the lie to the term “organized religion,” Ordet is a challenge to simple facts and dogmatic orthodoxy. Layering multiple stories of faith and rebellion which builds towards a shattering, miraculous climax in this Easter Sunday screening.
