BUDDHA.mov

Fri, Mar 23, 2018 10:15 PM (70 min)
Documentary turned fiction turned cross-media project turned social experiment, this film follows the life of Buddhadev Mangaldas, a cocksure 27-year-old cricketer who plays for Goa. What initially seems to be a classical unidirectional observational documentary of a successful sportsman quickly shifts into a more interactive piece when the cheerful—and, at times, gullible—protagonist of the film begins to linger with the camera. He increasingly gives in to his hedonistic ego, and in doing so unveils the most private parts of his eccentric life and multilayered personality.

Children Are Not Afraid of Death, Children Are Afraid of Ghosts

Sun, Mar 25, 2018 1:00 PM (85 min)
“An encounter between me and the tragic suicide of four brothers and sisters: after attempting to sneak into the village where the accident took place, being caught and held by the local government authorities, I leave and then wander in the mountains. Hanging out with the children of the mountains evokes my childhood memories and, fleeing like a coward, I return to Beijing family life, and yet that lingering feeling will not cease.” – Rong Guang Rong

Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun?

Sat, Mar 24, 2018 1:30 PM (90 min)
Alabama, 1946. S.E. Branch, the filmmaker’s great-grandfather, murdered Bill Spann, a black man. The murder has become hidden family lore, and when Wilkerson sets out to unravel the mystery, he encounters obstacle upon obstacle, destroyed records, and everyone refusing to talk. He’s accused of bringing shame upon the family, shaking up old trouble nobody wants. The ghosts are real in Alabama. This isn’t a white savior story. It's a white nightmare story.

Strike a Rock

Sun, Mar 25, 2018 1:15 PM (87 min)
In a deeply personal journey, Strike a Rock follows two South African activists who take on the infamous platinum mining company, Lonmin Plc. Primrose Sonti and Thumeka Magwangqana are grandmothers and best friends living in Nkaneng, Marikana, an informal settlement in rural South Africa that sprang up around a mine operated by Lonmin Plc. This was the company at the heart of the Marikana Massacre of 2012, when 37 striking mineworkers were killed by police. After the massacre shakes their poverty-stricken community, the women lead a historic fight for justice.

The Big House

Sat, Mar 24, 2018 2:00 PM (119 min)
Ann Arbor, Michigan is the prototypical college town: a small city with a massive research university; a tradition of political radicalism; and Michigan Stadium, the largest in the United States and the home of University of Michigan football. With a capacity of 107,601 the entire population of Ann Arbor fits in the stadium, which fans affectionately call “The Big House.” Michigan football goes back to 1879, and is known for its distinctive winged helmet and its fight song “The Victors.” But this direct cinema documentary eschews gridiron grandeur to look closely at all the labor—from the cooks to the cops to the cleaners—that goes into hosting 100,000 people. Shot against the backdrop of the 2016 election and the rise of Donald Trump, it presents a microcosm of America by showing everything but the game.

The Impossible Picture (Das unmöglich Bild)

Sun, Mar 25, 2018 3:00 PM (70 min)
With a sovereign, stylistic confidence, Sandra Wollner´s The Impossible Picture uses the private format of the home movie to allow an increasingly more powerful narrative to step forth in its allegedly random snapshots darkened in the brown hues of the 1950s. Yet who is narrating is unclear. Precisely when Johanna has the camera in hand, “impossible images” suddenly arise.

Those Who Come, Will Hear

Fri, Mar 23, 2018 6:00 PM (77 min)
Those Who Come, Will Hear proposes a unique meeting with the speakers of several Indigenous and Inuit languages of Quebec—languages all threatened with extinction. The film starts with the discovery of these unsung tongues through listening to the daily life of those who still speak them today. Buttressed by an exploration and creation of archives, the film allows us to understand better the musicality of these languages and reveals the cultural and human importance of these venerable oral traditions by nourishing a collective reflection on the consequences of their disappearance.

TREMOR - Es ist immer Krieg

Sun, Mar 25, 2018 3:15 PM (92 min)
TREMOR is driven by the voices that run through it—the voices of poets and madmen, of a mother or a child. From reflexive thought to spontaneous account, from witness statement to fiction, they talk in turn about their experience of violence and war. We listen to them while our gaze is taken to places and scarred landscapes that are impossible to place. Noises from elsewhere filter through. The image becomes distorted and porous. Music starts to play. The film homes in on the presence of a pianist, before diffracting again.... TREMOR is a sensory journey between memory and nightmare. An act of resistance.
