When the CIA gives back his license to kill, Black Dynamite makes it his mission to keep smack out of orphanages at any cost. Can you dig it? | 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

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, we are pleased to present two programs celebrating the seminal film The Boys in the Band, a cultural watershed that still resonates today.

This documentary features the many people involved with the original stage play and film, including Crowley and Dominick Dunne, as well as Edward Albee, Robert Wagner, and Paul Rudnick. After that screening there will be a discussion moderated by Tony Award-winning producer and film documentarian Dori Berinstein with director Crayton Robey, playwright/screenwriter Mart Crowley, Village Voice columnist Michael Musto, actor Laurence Luckinbill, and other special guests. | Read More

BURNING SEASON

  • Release Year: 2009
  • Runtime: 90 minutes
  • Directed By: Cathy Henkel
  • Country: Australia
TFF award winner Henkel returns with this powerful portrait of three lives affected by deliberately lit fires raging across Indonesia. Destroying pristine rainforest, endangering wildlife, and contributing to climate change, these fires only benefit the lucrative palm oil industry. Following a carbon-trading entrepreneur, an orangutan rescuer, and a palm oil farmer, this doc inspirationally shows those caught at the intersection of big business and conservation. Hugh Jackman narrates. | Read More
