At the Student Center Auditorium, we will be screening two films about the stage: Andrea Baldini’s Ferdinand Knapp, and Creditors by Ben Cura. The titular Ferdinand Knapp is the pre-eminent actor of French theatre, revered by all. In preparing for a new play, the lines between his character’s malevolent personality and his own begin to blur. His double warps his reality into a nightmare and compels him to commit an irredeemable act. In Creditors, a love triangle is unraveled when a young painter is approached by an admirer who eases him into making sense of his relationship with his wife. Based on August Strindberg’s 1888 play, “Creditors” is a modern re-telling of Strindberg’s story of love, betrayal, revenge and psychological manipulation, which he considered to be his one true masterpiece.
