"Black and White in Color" (France/Ivory Coast, 1976, 7 p.m.). Jean-Jacques Annaud's witty, ironic allegory on the folly of war and nationalism, set in French Equatorial Africa in the early days of World War I and involving a comic opera assault on a German outpost across the veldt, which leads to all manner of role reversals and challenged conventions. This 1976 winner of the foreign-language film Oscar is part of the tribute to producer Arthur Cohn. Recommended.
