This week, Chlotrudis welcomes the return of CineCache, a partnership between Chlotrudis and the Brattle Film Foundation where a film is screened pre-theatrical release and is followed by a discussion. This season's opener is COLLABORATOR. The directorial debut of Hal Hartley regular Martin Donovan, COLLABORATOR is the riveting, darkly comedic tale of Robert Longfellow (Donovan), a famous playwright who can’t seem to catch a break. His recent Broadway play is a flop and his marriage is on the rocks. Retreating back to his childhood home to visit his mother, Robert crosses paths with his old neighbor, Gus (Morse), a right-wing, ex-con who still lives at home with his mom. | Read more »
It’s CineCache time at the Brattle! Chlotrudis and the Brattle Theatre present Aleksei Fedorchenko’s SILENT SOULS. This haunting and beautiful film from Russia explores grief, love and fate as refracted through the lens of ancient ritual and beliefs.

Although the Merja people assimilated into Russians long ago, their myths and traditions live on in their descendants’ modern life. And so, the two men set out on a roadtrip along with Tanya’s body and two small birds in a cage. | Read more »
