Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano)
Limelight Cinema
Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019 2:45 PM
From the Oscar-nominated team behind the genre-defying Embrace of the Serpent comes an equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture's values, Rapayet (José Acosta) enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite his tribe's matriarch Ursula's (Carmiña Martínez) disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, Birds of Passage is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change.


Gloria Bell
Pickford Film Center
Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019 3:15 PM
Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family.

"When filmmakers from outside the Anglosphere recycle their earlier work into English-language remakes, the results are often disastrous. But Chilean writer-director Sebastian Lelio (A Fantastic Woman) continues his winning streak with Gloria Bell, a joyously bittersweet reboot of his 2013 Spanish-language prizewinner Gloria, which is graced by a finely etched and vanity-free lead performance by Julianne Moore." The Hollywood Reporter.


Apollo 11
Pickford Film Center
Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019 3:50 PM
"The most perfect movie that will ever be made about its subject, Apollo 11 takes the purest documentary idea imaginable—telling the story of the first journey to the moon and back using only the footage captured in the moment—and rides it all the way home. Conceptually, it’s a masterstroke: Other films have leaned into narration or interviews, while Damien Chazelle’s brooding First Man took a somewhat incidental leap into personal grief.

But by mining a trove of NASA’s archival footage (much of it unseen since 1969 or ever), disciplined filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller places an unmistakable emphasis on the thousands of people who toiled in quiet synchronicity, pulling off America’s greatest mission without a hitch. Apollo 11 will bring you to tears—it’s a reminder of national functionality, of making the big dream happen without ego or divisiveness." Joshua Rothkopf for Time Out.


Never Look Away (Werk ohne Autor)
Limelight Cinema
Tuesday, Mar 26, 2019 5:30 PM
Young artist Kurt Barnert (Tom Schilling) has fled to West-Germany, but he continues to be tormented by the experiences he made in his childhood and youth in the Nazi years and during the GDR-regime. When he meets the student Ellie (Paula Beer), he is convinced that he has met the love of his life and begins to create paintings that mirror not only his own fate, but also the traumas of an entire generation.

Caravaggio: The Soul and the Blood
Limelight Cinema
Wednesday, Mar 27, 2019 6:00 PM
A journey through life, works and struggles of Michelangelo Merisi from Caravaggio. His existence, no less than his art, is characterized by lights and shadows, contrasts and contradictions, genius and sobriety. Revolutionary artist, he was often not so beloved by contemporaries. He travelled Italy in search of luck or perhaps in search of himself, escaping the enemies that he always found at his passage. Milan, Venice, Rome, Naples, Malta, Sicily. His death seems a twist of faith: he died in Porto Ercole, one step away from Rome, one step away from salvation.

According to the Longhi’s lesson (the main Caravaggio expert), his work will be read with strict reference to his existence, finding in his masterpieces the echo of personal experiences.

Saturday, Mar 30, 2019 3:20 PM
Halla is a fifty-year-old independent woman. But behind the scenes of a quiet routine, she leads a double life as a passionate environmental activist. Known to others only by her alias "The Woman of the Mountain," Halla secretly wages a one-woman-war on the local aluminum industry. As Halla's actions grow bolder, from petty vandalism to outright industrial sabotage, she succeeds in pausing the negotiations between the Icelandic government and the corporation building a new aluminum smelter. But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.


Apollo 11

Saturday, Mar 30, 2019 4:20 PM
"The most perfect movie that will ever be made about its subject, Apollo 11 takes the purest documentary idea imaginable—telling the story of the first journey to the moon and back using only the footage captured in the moment—and rides it all the way home. Conceptually, it’s a masterstroke: Other films have leaned into narration or interviews, while Damien Chazelle’s brooding First Man took a somewhat incidental leap into personal grief.

But by mining a trove of NASA’s archival footage (much of it unseen since 1969 or ever), disciplined filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller places an unmistakable emphasis on the thousands of people who toiled in quiet synchronicity, pulling off America’s greatest mission without a hitch. Apollo 11 will bring you to tears—it’s a reminder of national functionality, of making the big dream happen without ego or divisiveness." Joshua Rothkopf for Time Out.


Gloria Bell
Pickford Film Center
Saturday, Mar 30, 2019 5:45 PM
Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family.

"When filmmakers from outside the Anglosphere recycle their earlier work into English-language remakes, the results are often disastrous. But Chilean writer-director Sebastian Lelio (A Fantastic Woman) continues his winning streak with Gloria Bell, a joyously bittersweet reboot of his 2013 Spanish-language prizewinner Gloria, which is graced by a finely etched and vanity-free lead performance by Julianne Moore."

Who Will Write Our History
Pickford Film Center
Tuesday, Apr 2, 2019 5:45 PM
In November 1940, days after the Nazis sealed 450,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, a secret band of journalists, scholars and community leaders decided to fight back. Led by historian Emanuel Ringelblum and known by the code name Oyneg Shabes, this clandestine group vowed to defeat Nazi lies and propaganda not with guns or fists, but with pen and paper. Now, for the first time, their story is told.

Based on the book by Samuel D. Kassow, Who Will Write Our History mixes the writings of the Oyneg Shabes archive with new interviews, rarely seen archival footage and stunning dramatizations to transport us inside the Ghetto and the lives of these courageous resistance fighters. They defied their murderous enemy with the ultimate weapon – the truth – and risked everything so that their archive would survive the war, even if they did not.

But right as she begins planning her biggest and boldest operation yet, she receives an unexpected letter that changes everything. Her application to adopt a child has finally been accepted and there is a little girl waiting for her in Ukraine. As Halla prepares to abandon her role as saboteur and savior of the Highlands to fulfill her dream of becoming a mother, she decides to plot one final attack to deal the aluminum industry a crippling blow.


Apollo 11
Pickford Film Center
Wednesday, Apr 3, 2019 3:30 PM
"The most perfect movie that will ever be made about its subject, Apollo 11 takes the purest documentary idea imaginable—telling the story of the first journey to the moon and back using only the footage captured in the moment—and rides it all the way home. Conceptually, it’s a masterstroke: Other films have leaned into narration or interviews, while Damien Chazelle’s brooding First Man took a somewhat incidental leap into personal grief.

But by mining a trove of NASA’s archival footage (much of it unseen since 1969 or ever), disciplined filmmaker Todd Douglas Miller places an unmistakable emphasis on the thousands of people who toiled in quiet synchronicity, pulling off America’s greatest mission without a hitch. Apollo 11 will bring you to tears—it’s a reminder of national functionality, of making the big dream happen without ego or divisiveness." Joshua Rothkopf for Time Out.


We Are Columbine
Pickford Film Center
Wednesday, Apr 3, 2019 5:45 PM
This is a story of redemption and identity. We Are Columbine examines who we are after trauma and what healing looks like for survivors of the mass shooting at Columbine High School on April 20, 1999.

Offering a unique perspective, the filmmaker is also a fellow survivor of the tragedy, only a freshman in 1999. After nearly 20 years, these Columbine alumni feel they have a safe outlet to tell their stories -- honest, uncensored, and in their own words. Columbine alumni trace their feelings as the film reaches back, through, and ultimately forward, exploring what happened on that fateful day and its reverberating effects.


Gloria Bell

Wednesday, Apr 3, 2019 5:45 PM
Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity and family.

"When filmmakers from outside the Anglosphere recycle their earlier work into English-language remakes, the results are often disastrous. But Chilean writer-director Sebastian Lelio (A Fantastic Woman) continues his winning streak with Gloria Bell, a joyously bittersweet reboot of his 2013 Spanish-language prizewinner Gloria, which is graced by a finely etched and vanity-free lead performance by Julianne Moore."

"You will struggle to meet anyone more interesting than Dave Bald Eagle. Born in a tipi in 1919, Dave Bald Eagle lived with his grandfather, White Feather, and spoke only Lakota until he went to school when he was 12 years old. His life was too dramatic for a movie, but would need a mini-series. taking his first starring role in a movie at 95 and turning in as incredible a performance as he does in Neither Wolf Nor Dog was just a classic example of how fearless he was."

Trumbo is presented along with local author Laura Kalpakian’s release of her new novel The Great Pretenders and will feature a reading from the book and a Q&A with Laura following the film.

Laura Kalpakian is the author of sixteen novels and four collections of short fiction published in the US and the UK.

La forza del destino (Royal Opera House)
Pickford Film Center
Sunday, May 5, 2019 11:00 AM
La forza del destino is one of Verdi's most ambitious scores. Its overture - which introduces us to the sinister motif signifying Fate - is one of his most memorable. The opera also contains some of Verdi’s most brilliant choral writing, including Act III’s stirring ‘Rataplan’ chorus, and several beautiful and intimate arias such as Leonora's ardent Act IV 'Pace, pace mio Dio!'. There's comedy too with the scenes for the greedy monk Fra Melitone. Christof Loy's colourful and spectacular production reflects the kaleidoscopic nature of Verdi's opera, where intense personal dramas play out against a background of war, and in which religion plays an ambiguous role.

"Amusingly, Penny Lane’s documentary Hail Satan? is interested in clarifying one critical misconception about the Satanic Temple: its members don’t, in fact, worship the Devil at all. Rather, the organization—or religion, as they’d prefer to be called—is, essentially, an ultimately altruistic group of people, typically self-proclaimed misfits, who wish to highlight the double standards of the so-called separation of church and state—all while co-opting Satanic iconography to get a rise out of Christian conservatives."

Tuesday, May 14, 2019 6:30 PM
A tragicomedy initially set in the jianghu-criminal underworld-setting, Ash is Purest White is less a gangster movie than a melodrama. With a three-part structure, it begins by following the quick-witted Qiao (Tao Zhao) and her mobster boyfriend Bin (Fan Liao) as they stake out their turf against rivals and upstarts in 2001 postindustrial Datong before expanding out into an epic narrative of how abstract forces shape individual lives, and continues Jia Zhangke's body of work as a record of 21st-century China and its warp-speed transformations.
