Though a Lens

In a bow to Month of Photography, the Sie FilmCenter is partnering with the Colorado Photographic Arts Center to present Double Exposure: The World of Photography in Film, a five-program series in April that turns its focus on films that channel photography, whether through subject matter or the sheer beauty-driven visual acuity of filmmakers and cinematographers. And what a series it is, full of eye candy and unearthed cinema classics, sleepers and documentaries.

Tonight's opener is a twin screening at 7 p.m. of two works by Chris Marker: La Jetée, the influential, time-traveling, post-apocalyptic sci-fi wonder shot in still images; and his masterpiece, Sans Soleil, a globe-trotting, experimental visual essay that reveals one stunning image after another, some of them sampled from other filmmakers.

Other films include Inferno, which binds together footage from auteur Henri-George Clouzot's unfinished film with archival material, photographs, storyboards and interviews, on April 9 (followed in the lobby by Art-Plant Light Media's Film Night 2013, a showcase for local experimental films); The Eyes of Laura Mars, as part of the Watching Hour series on April 19 and 20; the documentary Marwencol on April 23; and the short-documentary showcase, VII Uncommissioned, with co-director Ed Kashi in person, on April 30. Admission is $7 to $10 per film; for a complete schedule and details, visit or call 720-381-0813.
