Antonia’s Line

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Join us for ANTONIA’S LINE, the “feminist fairy tale” by Marleen Gorris which won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film of 1995. Willeke van Ammelrooy stars in the title role as a matriarch looking back at the farm and family she led for 50 years. “ANTONIA’S LINE is a Dutch treat that unfolds like a generous novel, surrounding you with its indelible sense of time, place and character,” wrote Jeff Shannon in the Seattle Times, while the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Carrie Rickey described it as “a work of rare lyricism. It glows with the light of a Flemish painting and the spirit of magic realism.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

A presentation of the Yale Film Study Center and Films at the Whitney with support from Paul L. Joskow ’70 M.Phil., ’72 Ph.D.
