The 3 Rooms of Melancholia

The 3 Rooms of Melancholia
  • Sunday March 4 | 5:00pm

This poetic, highly cinematic documentary works as a triptych exploring the emotional devastation of the Chechen war on children. ‘Beauty and terror are the inextricable polarities of Ms. Honkasalo's meditation on people caught up in war. More affecting than any displays of emotion is the prevailing attitude of stoicism and endurance in the face of suffering. Pirjo Honkasalo's magnificent documentary is one of the saddest films ever made’. New York Times
