Cleo From 5 to 7
(1962) (Shown on film): Recently feted with a lavish Criterion box set, French New Wave's chief female member Agn�s Varda is arguably best known for this portrait, which spends 90 minutes with a pop singer (Corinne Marchand) awaiting test results from her doctor. Melancholy, whimsical and occasionally even strange, complete with a show-stopping faux-silent movie starring then-marrieds Anna Karina and Jean-Luc Godard. Stay afterward for this month's Film Discussion Group, led by I-House's brilliant curator (and peerless projectionist) Robert Cargni. B+ Sat., March 15, 7pm.
Syndromes and a Century
(2006) (Shown on film): More words next week on the latest mysterious object from Thai wonder Apichatpong Weerasethakul. But know this, Philadelphia cinephiles: This is just the first in an actual series on the filmmaker. Following will be not only his great Tropical Malady but two full nights of his many, many shorts. A- Wed., March 19, 7pm.

(2000) (Shown on DVD): WIP's Anthony Gargano hosts the TLA/Philebrity Screening Series, screening a film that deploys surprisingly few F-bombs. Only 115 in 89 minutes?

B+ Thurs., March 13, 7:30pm.
