Reminder: ARCE/NC Chapter Fundraiser: "The Loves of Pharaoh," February 21st

Whether you're a film buff or an Egyptomaniac, or something in between (?), this is a film you don't want to miss, a key work in the history of Ancient Egypt at the cinema. You still have a few (3) days left to get a 2015 tax deduction by buying fundraiser tickets before the end of the year, but we'll take your money any time thereafter, until the show starts or we run out of tickets. In addition, a one-page flyer in PDF format is attached that you can print and post, should you know of a library, bookstore, college or other venue that WELCOMES paper postings. Finally, there's a jpeg image of the flyer that you are welcome to copy to your favorite website, just in case I've missed any.

Thanks for your time, your patience, and, above all, your help.

Happy New Year!

Lubitsch's last German film before his emigration to the US was thought lost until a few years ago. Painstakingly restored from footage salvaged in several countries, The Loves of Pharaoh ("Das Weib des Pharao") reveals the great director at a critical point in film history as well as the state of Egyptological knowledge on the eve of Howard Carter's discovery. Massive sets, detailed props, meticulously restored color tints and a modern orchestral recording of the 1922 score recapture for today's audiences the magic of classic film in the silent era.

With English subtitles.
