  • Unfortunately, the announced talk with Michael Roemer cannot take place. We will try to hold it at a later date.

When VENGEANCE IS MINE was shown on US television in 1984, it was barely noticed and quickly forgotten. Nearly 40 years later, the rediscovery of this work is "a cause for celebration" (A.S. Hamrah). After years of absence, a woman returns to New England to be reconciled with her family. An acquaintance with a neighbor draws her into a different family drama. “What all of Roemer’s work shares is an assuredness of its own pace, in step only with itself, all utterly original works confronting major themes in a minor key.”  (Jake Perlin) (hb)
