In Person Guests!

Remastered from the original materials, which were only rediscovered recently, IVANS XTC has never been available in the quality in which it was originally shot, partly due to technical limitations of digital technology at the time of its production.

Discussion following with writer-director Bernard Rose, actors Danny Huston and Peter Weller and actress/co-writer Lisa Enos, moderated by Larry Karaszewski.
World Premiere of New Restoration!

2000, 93 min, UK/USA, Dir: Bernard Rose

Director Bernard Rose’s (CANDYMAN) adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s novella The Death of Ivan Ilyich centers on a towering performance by Danny Huston as movie agent Ivan Beckman, whose greatest career triumph coincides with a diagnosis of terminal cancer. The self-serving girlfriend (Lisa Enos), director (James Merendino) and star (a wonderful Peter Weller) who surround Ivan but remain oblivious to his situation make this a stinging indictment of Hollywood at first glance, but by the final frame, this HD-shot drama emerges as something much deeper. Nominated for four Independent Spirit Awards, including Best Director and Best Male Lead.
