Join host Jonathan Demme for a wild ride through the cinematic past.
The Night of Counting the Years
Jonathan Demme: A riveting tone-poem of a film that I have loved and been haunted by since first seeing it in London in the 1960s. Its portrayal of an Egyptian family that has subsisted for generations by selling artifacts removed from ancient tombs is an unlikely gateway into a motion picture of rich mood and visual texture. Not a thriller, The Night of Counting the Years is rather a cinematic state of mind, a rare treasure tracked down for us by the indefatigable sleuths of the JBFC programming unit.
