While the arts center is closed, the Arts of the Moving Image is reinventing its series to bring independent films into your home: Screen/Society is, for now, Stream/Society.

Art House Films in Your Livingroom

Public screenings by Duke’s Art of the Moving Image’s Screen/Society may be on hiatus for now (stay up to date with Duke University’s Coronavirus Response here), but staff are busy exploring ways to bring Screen/Society programming into your home.

For now, call the program Stream/Society.

Stream/Society has partnered with friends at Grasshopper Films to bring you a special opportunity to stream Pedro Costa’s new film Vitalina Varela, starting the afternoon of Wednesday, April 1, and ending at 11:59pm on Friday, April 3.

Vitalina Varela
(Pedro Costa, 2019, 124 min, Portugal, Cape Verdean Creole & Portuguese w/ subtitles, Color, DCP)

The highly anticipated new film from Pedro Costa, director of Horse Money, Colossal Youth, In Vanda’s Room and Casa de Lava. Vitalina Varela, 55-year-old Cape Verdean, arrives in Lisbon after a 25 year wait for her plane ticket – and three days after her husband’s funeral. With exacting, painterly cinematography, Vitalina Varela is an exquisitely crafted study of mourning and memory.
