Güeros

Alonso Ruiz Palacios / 2014, Mexico
106min / Blu-ray

WINNER OF 5 MEXICAN ACADEMY AWARDS INCLUDING BEST PICTURE & DIRECTOR

Ever since the National University strike broke out, Sombra and Santos have been living in angst-ridden limbo. Education-less, motionless, purposeless, and unsure of what the strike will bring, they begin to look for strange ways to kill time. But their idiosyncratic routine is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Tomas, Sombra's kid brother. Unable to fit in amongst these older slackers, Tomas discovers that unsung Mexican folk-rock hero Epigmenio Cruz has been hospitalized somewhere in the city. Tomas convinces Sombra and Santos they must track him down in order to pay their final respects on his deathbed. But what they thought would be a simple trip to find their childhood idol, soon becomes a voyage of self-discovery across Mexico City's invisible frontiers. In Spanish with English subtitles.

"Both sweetly nostalgic and exuberantly now... An unabashed homage not only to the Nouvelle Vague but also to a more general international new wave-ism. The story pops and swerves; the images are by turns comical, banal and ravishing: and the result is a briskly shaken cocktail made of equal parts provocation and comfort. You come away with a buzz that is invigorating and pleasantly familiar... In the Godardian spirit of MASCULINE FEMININE and BAND OF OUTSIDERS..." The New York Times

One Cut, One Life

Lucia Small and Ed Pincus / 2014, USA
106min / Blu-ray

Co-director Lucia Small schedule to Q&A after Friday 7pm, Sunday 5pm, Wednesday & Thursday 8pm screenings!

When documentarian Ed Pincus, considered the father of first-person non-fiction film, is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he and collaborator Lucia Small team up to make one last film – much to the chagrin of Jane, Ed’s wife of 50 years. This New York Film Festival selection is told from both filmmakers' points of view. Ed and Lucia’s unique approach to filming offers an intimacy rarely seen in docs, questioning whether some things might be too private to be made public. An intense, raw, yet sometimes humorous exploration of the human condition, One Cut, One Life invites viewers to contemplate for themselves what is important, not only at the end of life, but also during.

"CRITICS’ PICK! Stunning." Village Voice

"Extremely personal and moving...often pulses with an almost ecstatic vitality. In its vision of human existence, life is as messy and unpredictable as it is precious." The New York Times

"20 Must-See Summer Movies for Grownups. [A film] about discovering what is most important about living." Huffington Post

Felt

Jason Banker / 2014, USA
80min / Blu-ray

Amy is hanging on by a thread. Struggling to cope with past sexual trauma and the daily aggressions of a male-dominated society, she creates grotesquely-costumed alter egos that reappropriate the male form. While giving her the sense of power she craves, acting as these characters pushes her further into a world of her own making. When she begins a new relationship with a seemingly good guy, she opens herself up to him - but that vulnerability comes at a dangerous cost, and her alter egos threaten to lash out in explosive violence. Based on the real experiences and art of co-writer/star Amy Everson, Felt doesn’t just point a finger at rape culture; it takes a full on swing at it, creating a feminist psychological thriller that audiences will be hard-pressed to shake off.

"sneaks up on you and lingers for hours afterward." A.V. Club

"a beautiful film from one of the most exciting new directors working today" Birth.Movies.Death.

"This strange, quiet film takes social narratives about romance and gender and upends them, often seeming like one thing until it's another." Village Voice
