Bangalore film society is presenting `Walk Backwards into the Horizon‘, a weekend of the first three films of one of the greatest directors of our time and our perennial favorite- Jim Jarmusch.

Friday 15th May, 2009 Time: 6.30pm
Down By Law (1986/107min) Dir: Jim Jarmusch

When fate lands three hapless men—an unemployed disc jockey (Tom Waits), a small-time pimp (John Lurie), and a strong-willed Italian tourist (Roberto Benigni)—in a Louisiana prison, their singular adventure begins. Described by director Jim Jarmusch as a “neo–Beat noir comedy,” Down by Law is part nightmare and part fairy tale, featuring fine performances and crisp black-and-white photography by esteemed cinematographer Robby Müller. Nominated for Palm D’Or 1986.

Stranger Than Paradise (1984/89min) Dir: Jim Jarmusch

Rootless Hungarian émigré Willie (John Lurie), his pal Eddie (Richard Edson), and visiting sixteen-year- old cousin Eva (Eszter Balint) always manage to make the least of any situation, whether aimlessly traversing the drab interiors and environs of New York City, Cleveland, or an anonymous Florida suburb. With its delicate humor and dramatic nonchalance, Jim Jarmusch’s one-of-a-kind minimalist masterpiece, Stranger Than Paradise, forever transformed the landscape of American independent cinema. Winner of Camera D’Or at Cannes 1984.

Permanent Vacation (1980/75min) Dir: Jim Jarmuch


Permanent Vacation is directed, written and produced by Jim Jarmusch. It was the director’s first release, and was shot on 16 mm film shortly after he dropped out of film school. The main character wanders around a dingy New York atmosphere and is confronted by a number of intriguing characters as he ponders the questions of life, and searches for a better place. Winner of Josef Von Sternberg Award, 1980.

Venue: Ashirvad, 30, St. Mark’s Road cross, Op. State Bank of India
