Two people in One People, hanging out in style

  • Two people in One People, hanging out in style

Tonight is a remarkable night for moviegoing in Chicago. At the Portage, Northwest Chicago Film Society screens Fritz Lang’s You and Me (the subject of this week’s long review); Doc Films kicks off its eclectic summer calendar with a program of early Charlie Chaplin shorts; and the Gene Siskel Film Center continues its weeklong revival of Hayao Miyazaki’s My Neighbor Totoro, one of the greatest animated films ever made. But the rarest find may be at Facets Multimedia: at 8:30 PM, the African Diaspora Film Festival presents One People, a 1976 Surinamese feature by Pim de la Parra, a Dutch filmmaker whose storied career remains virtually unknown in this country. (If you’re interested to catch up, Facets is also screening a documentary about him, Parradox, at 6:30 PM.)
