      The projector: What to see and where to see it 

      Through a Glass Darkly The first film in Ingmar Bergman’s “Faith” trilogy makes its way to the Bergman100 retrospective at the Cinematheque, on Friday (March 30), Sunday (April 1), and Wednesday (April 4).

      Winter Light Billed with The Silence—which drew huge receipts in 1963 thanks to its sexual daring. Bergman100 wraps up the “Faith” trilogy with a weekend of screenings starting on Friday (March 30).

      Le Petit Prince The Vancity Theatre hosts a free screening of this animated take on the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry classic, featuring the voices of Marion Cotillard and Vincent Cassel, on Saturday (March 31).


      Je Tu Il Elle

      You have one more shot at seeing the restored version of Chantal Akerman’s painfully intimate feature-film debut from 1974, in which she also stars, at the Cinematheque on Thursday (March 29). Je Tu Il Elle is paired with Agnès Varda’s no less vital 1977 film One Sings, the Other Doesn’t.
