TIM FERRISS: Tools of Titans

Whether you’re a millionaire-in-the-making or just trying to check off your to-do list every single day, you’re always on the hunt for how to do your best, but where do you even start? Enter Tim Ferris of Four-Hour Work Week, and his latest book Tools of Titans: The Tactics, Routines, and Habits of Billionaires, Icons, and World-Class Performers.

Just for you, Tim picked the brains of 200+ of the most creative, successful leaders from around the world to help you do better every day, including Brene Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, Jamie Foxx, Reid Hoffman, and dozens of others. He asked them actionable questions (What does the first hour of their day look like? What do their workout routines look like and why? What are the biggest time wastes they avoid?) so that you can apply their philosophies to your own life. To quote Tim, who tried many of these tactics himself, “The lessons have made me millions of dollars and saved me years of wasted effort and frustration.”

Come hear from Tim at INFORUM, and who knows — maybe you’ll end up featured in his next book!

Time: 6:00 check-in and premium reception, 7:00 program, 8:15 book signing

 
     
   


WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 1 JARMUSCH DOUBLE FEATURE

STRANGER THAN PARADISE 7:00
Rootless Hungarian émigré John Lurie, his pal Richard Edson, and visiting sixteen-year-old cousin Eszter Balint always manage to make the least of any situation, whether aimlessly traversing the drab interiors and environs of New York City, Cleveland, or an anonymous Florida suburb. With its delicate humor and dramatic nonchalance, Jim Jarmusch’s one-of-a-kind minimalist masterpiece forever transformed the landscape of American independent cinema. (1984, 89 min, 35mm)

+ BROKEN FLOWERS 8:45

In Jarmusch’s comedy-drama, resolutely single Bill Murray embarks on a cross-country trek in search of the son he didn’t know using clues from four former flames. Unannounced visits to each of these unique women hold new surprises for him as he haphazardly confronts both his past and, consequently, his present. Frances Conroy, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone, Tilda Swinton and Jeffrey Wright co-star. Winner of the Grand Prix at Cannes. (2005, 106 min, 35mm)

 
     
   


THURSDAY FEBRUARY 2 JEANNE MOREAU DOUBLE FEATURE

LA NOTTE 3:00, 7:00 NEW 4K RESTORATION
This psychologically acute, visually striking modernist work was director Michelangelo Antonioni’s follow-up to the epochal L’avventura. Marcello Mastroianni and Jeanne Moreau star as a novelist and his frustrated wife, who, over the course of one night, confront their alienation from each other and the achingly empty bourgeois Milan circles in which they travel. Antonioni’s muse Monica Vitti smolders as an industrialist’s tempting daughter. Moodily sensual cinematography and subtly expressive performances make La notte an indelible illustration of romantic and social deterioration. This new, sumptuous restoration was sourced from a 4K scan of a 35mm fine-grain. (1961, in Italian with English subtitles, 122 min, 4K DCP)

+ ELEVATOR TO THE GALLOWS 5:15, 9:15 NEW RESTORATION

In his mesmerizing debut feature, twenty-four- year-old director Louis Malle brought together the super cool beauty of Jeanne Moreau, the innovative camerawork of Henri Decaë, the now legendary score by Miles Davis and ushered in the French New Wave in the process. This iconic film is a richly atmospheric thriller of murder and mistaken identity unfolding over one restless Parisian night. (1957, in French with English subtitles, 92 min, DCP)
