P.O.V. Film Series Screens “Knife In The Water” at Tapp’s Arts Center
On Thursday, July 11th The Point of View Film Series at Tapp’s Art Center will screen Roman Polanski’s, ‘Knife In The Water’ (1962). Roman Polanski‘s first feature is a brilliant psychological thriller that many critics still consider among his greatest work. The story is simple, yet the implications of its characters‘ emotions and actions are profound. When a young hitchhiker joins a couple on a weekend yacht trip, psychological warfare breaks out as the two men compete for the woman‘s attention. A storm forces the small crew below deck, and tension builds to a violent climax. With stinging dialogue and a mercilessly probing camera, Polanski creates a disturbing study of fear, humiliation, sexuality, and aggression. This remarkable directorial debut won Polanski worldwide acclaim, a place on the cover of Time, and his first Oscar nomination. Admission: $5.00 Discussion will follow film. Knife In The Water is the fifth film in the P.O.V. Series which meets the SECOND THURSDAY of each MONTH in the Skyline Room of Tapp’s Art Center to discuss films of varying eras, styles, and genres from around the world.
