Life Is a Dream: The Films of Raúl Ruiz (Part 2)

Image: "Comedy of Innocence" directed by Raúl Ruiz

Arguably Chile’s most internationally renowned and prolific filmmaker, Raúl Ruiz completed over 100 movies in numerous national cinemas. His mind-bending works are obsessed with questions of theology, philosophy, psychoanalysis, literature, and visual expression; wildly experimental and slyly humorous; surrealist, magical-realist, gothic, and neo-Baroque. To see one of Ruiz’s films is to go on an adventure full of humor, intellectual curiosity, and artistic daring; to see several is to land on a new continent, where his many obsessions find their delirious expression in the most surprising ways and where reason and madness are delightfully, terrifyingly indistinguishable. The Film Society is pleased to present the second part of an ongoing retrospective devoted to Ruiz, including a weeklong revival run of one of his most beloved films, Time Regained (1999), in a new digital restoration.
