Seeking to fill the void of her existence, she slides into an imagi- nary world -- the world of Quidam -- where she meets characters who encourage her to free her soul. Quidam: a nameless passerby, a solitary figure lingering on a street corner, a person rushing past and swallowed by the crowd. It could be anyone, anybody. Someone coming or going at the heart of our anonymous society. A member of the crowd, one of the silent majority. The one who cries out, sings and dreams within us all. This is the "quidam" whom this show allows to speak. This is the place that beckons -- a place for dreaming and genuine relations where all quidams, by proclaiming their individuality, can finally emerge from anonymity.

Once Upon a Time in the West (C'era una volta il West)- Saturday, November 12. Once Upon a Time in the West is among Sergio's most aestheti- cally complex works on many levels - from Its soundtrack that places diegetic sound effects (the squeaky wheels, gunshots and insects buzz- ing brilliantly employed in the cel- ebrated opening sequence, for ex- ample) at the same level as Morricone's incredible score, to Delli Colli's dynamic widescreen cinema- tography that allows the actors' faces to speak the words suppressed by the film's extraordinarily minimalist screenplay. The restored version screened at the HFA restores the full twenty minutes slashed by Para- mount for the film's original US re- lease.

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (II buono, il brutto, il cattivo) - Sat- urday, November 19. Among the best- known Westerns of all time.

A massively influential film, Leone's epic is a bravura example of both his baroque visual style, revealed as much in the incredible sets as Tonino Delli Colli's extraordinary widescreen cinematography, as well as his savage gallows humor - with both intertwining in an astonishing cemetery shootout that remains one of the iconic moments of postwar Ital- ian cinema, For more details visit hcl.harvard.edu/hfa.

The Prague Cemetery takes place in nineteenth-century Europe, which abounds with the ghastly and the mysterious, From Turin to Prague to Paris, conspiracies rule history. Jesuits plot against Freemasons. Italian republicans strangle priests with their own intestines. French criminals plan bombings by day and celebrate Black Masses at night. Every nation has its own secret service, perpetrating forgeries, plots, and massacres. From the unification of Italy to the Paris Commune to the Dreyfus Affair to The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, Europe is in tumult and everyone needs a scapegoat. But what if, behind all of these conspiracies both real and imagined, lay one lone man? What if that evll genius created its most infamous document? Eco is best known for his novel//home della rosa IThe Name of the Rose), which was published in 1980. The book is an intellectual mystery combining semiotics in fic- tion, biblical analysis, medieval stud- ies and literary theory. In 1986 a movie by the same name, directed by Jean-Jacques Annaud and star- ring Sean Connery, was released.
