Friday, October 6 – Monday, October 9

(1985) dir Donna Deitch w/Helen Shaver, Patricia Charbonneau, Audrey Lindley [96 min; DCP]
Donna Deitch’s swooning and sensual first film, DESERT HEARTS, was
groundbreaking upon its 1986 release: a love story about two women, produced and directed by a woman. In the 1959-set film, an adaptation of a
beloved novel by Jane Rule, straitlaced East Coast professor Vivian Bell
(Shaver) arrives in Reno to file for divorce, but winds up catching the eye of someone new, the younger free spirit Cay (Charbonneau), touching off a
slow seduction that unfolds against the breathtaking desert landscape. With
smoldering chemistry between its two leads, an evocative jukebox soundtrack, and vivid cinematography by Robert Elswit, DESERT HEARTS beautifully exudes a sense of tender yearning and emotional candor.
