AMADEUS Director’s Cut!


Wednesday, January 26 – 7:30 PM

The Independent Film & Television Alliance (IFTA), marking its 30th anniversary, has selected the 30 Most Significant Independent Films(tm) from around the world produced over the past three decades.

AMADEUS Director’s Cut!, 1984, Warner Bros., 180 min. Dir. Milos Forman.
This sumptuous period bio-pic, adapted by Peter Shaffer from his play, was nominated for 11 Oscars and won eight, including Best Picture. In flashbacks from the insane asylum where he is confined, composer Antonio Salieri (Oscar winner F. Murray Abraham) tells the story of his rivalry with precocious genius Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (Tom Hulce), whose outlandish personality offends Salieri’s more finely tuned sensibilities. [35mm]
