BAM’s Valentine’s Week Film Series

BAM Cinema is taking a look at the word “love” in this series, Programmer’s Notebook: On Love, and really examining what the word means and what forms it comes in. From February 14th-21st they’ll be screening a wide variety of films, both old and new, about this topic. This is really a very unique and lovely way to celebrate Valentine’s Day on the actual day or the weekend after. Read more below.

The first in a new recurring series in which members of BAM’s film programming team respond to a thought-provoking theme.

Love: it intoxicates, sustains, cuts, burns, bruises, heals, makes the world go round, and is, presumably, all you need. There’s love between people: romantic partners, families, and friends. There’s self-love. Love for animals or nature. Love for what you do. And then there’s the flip side: the heartache and pain love leaves in its absence. Love takes many forms in this wide-ranging survey of how this most fundamental yet complex of emotions has been portrayed on-screen by some of cinema’s most perceptive chroniclers of the human condition.
