Director Terrence Malick’s landmark film “Days of Heaven” (1978) will screen in the Mondavi Center’s Vanderhoef Studio Theatre at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 6.

Known for its lush visuals and period setting (in the early 1900s), “Days of Heaven” won an Oscar for Best Cinematography. The 94-minute  film tells the story of Bill (Richard Gere), an Chicago steel-mill worker who flees town after accidentally killing a man. In search of a better life, he moves his girlfriend Abby (Brooke Adams) and younger sister to the wheat fields of Texas. But they run into tragedy when a wealthy farmer (Sam Shepard) falls for Abby.

Tickets are $10 general, $5 students, www.mondaviarts.org or 530-754-2787. There will be a pre-screening talk at 6:30 p.m. by Jaimey Fisher, associate professor of German and Cinema and Technocultural Studies at UC Davis.
