BIG MEN

  • Release Year: 2013
  • Runtime: 99 minutes
  • Directed By: Rachel Boynton
  • Country: USA
For her latest industrial exposé, Rachel Boynton (Our Brand Is Crisis) gained unprecedented access to Africa's oil companies.

BLACK BUTTERFLIES

Poetry, politics, madness, and desire collide in the true story of the woman hailed as South Africa's Sylvia Plath. In 1960s Cape Town, as Apartheid steals the expressive rights of blacks and whites alike, young Ingrid Jonker (Carice van Houten, Black Book) finds her freedom scrawling verse while frittering through a series of stormy affairs. Amid escalating quarrels with her lovers and her government-censor father (Rutger Hauer), the poet witnesses an unconscionable event that will alter her life's course. | Read More

BLANK CITY

  • Release Year: 2009
  • Runtime: 100 minutes
  • Directed By: Celine Danhier
  • Country: USA
Celine Danhier's kinetic doc mirrors the urgent, anything-goes energy of her subject: the DIY independent film movement that emerged in tandem with punk rock in late-'70s downtown New York. New interviews with a dizzying array of artists—including Amos Poe, Bette Gordon, Debbie Harry, Eric Mitchell, Jim Jarmusch, Lydia Lunch, Steve Buscemi, John Lurie, and Nick Zedd—flow into clips from landmark No Wave films, and the still-thrilling music of the era floods the soundtrack. | Read More

BOMBAY BEACH

  • Release Year: 2011
  • Runtime: 80 minutes
  • Directed By: Alma Har'el
  • Country: USA and Israel
The rusting relic of a failed 1960s development boom, the Salton Sea is a barren California landscape and symbol of the failure of the American Dream. Using a stylized amalgam of nonfiction and choreographed dance set to the music of Beirut and Bob Dylan, Bombay Beach revisits this poetically fruitful terrain to find a motley cast including a bipolar seven-year-old, a lovelorn football star, and an octogenarian poet-prophet—creating a moving, distinctive, and slightly surreal documentary experience. | Read More

  • Runtime: 81 minutes
  • Directed By: Enid Zentelis
  • Country: USA
In this modern-day drama, Oscar®-winner Melissa Leo beautifully conveys the heart-wrenching struggle that comes with loving an addict. Complaining of back pain months after a car accident, Sylvie’s (Marin Ireland) addiction to painkillers is clear to everyone except her mother, Faye (Leo). A promising solution appears in Becket (Josh Hamilton), but relationships and loyalty are soon tested when his feelings fall in an unexpected place. | Read More

  • Runtime: 92 minutes
  • Directed By: Ounie Lecomte
  • Country: France and South Korea
When her father offers to take her on a trip, nine-year-old Jin-hee happily sings him a love song, the bittersweet notes inaudible to her own ear, until she realizes he has abandoned her at a Catholic orphanage. Drawing raves from the Cannes to Berlin film festivals, Ounie Lecomte's directorial debut, a semi-autobiographical portrait of 1970s South Korea, masterfully captures an emotional journey of loss, friendship, and starting anew. | Read More
