Into the distance

. May 16, 2012.

Half a world away, stands India's most holy city, the striking and beautiful Benares. Positioned gorgeously on the Ganges River, the city's intriguing qualities are immediately noticeable, but in the mid-80s filmmaker Robert Gardner explored the toil, trouble and relentless happiness it offers in the hardest way — one that's completely unbiased; the story just tells itself. As part of the Ann Arbor Film Festival's Retrospective Screening Series the film Forest of Bliss is revisited at the Michigan Theater on Wednesday, February 22. Recently restored, the innovative documentary will appear on a new 35mm print on loan from Harvard Film Academy. $10, $7 students. 7:30pm. 603 E. Liberty St. 734-668-8463. www.aafilmfest.org
