“But to the end of time certain places of the world remain defined for him as the place where those sensations were; and his only possible answer to the question where anything is will be to say ‘there,’ and to name some sensation or other like those first ones, which shall identify the spot. Space means but the aggregate of all our possible sensations.”
Tickets: $10 general; $6 for students/seniors; free for Filmforum members. Available in advance from Brown Paper Tickets at https://bpt.me/4034607 or at the door.
