WILD TALES

R  |  2 hours 2 minutes

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of WILD TALES cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

JULIUS CAESAR – Shakespeare’s Globe on Screen

NR  |  2 hours 40 minutes

Opposing dictatorship and republicanism, private virtue and mob violence: Shakespeare’s tense drama of high politics resonates even today. When Caesar returns to Rome from the wars, Brutus and his republican friends decide that the great general’s dictatorship must be curbed – which in Rome can mean only one thing. But once the deed is done, the idealistic conspirators must reckon with the forces of a new power bloc, led by Mark Antony and Caesar’s nephew Octavius. This sell-out production of JULIUS CAESAR employs authentic Renaissance costumes and staging, complemented by director Dominic Dromgoole’s impassioned interpretation of one of Shakespeare’s classic plays.

WELCOME TO ME

R  |  1 hour 28 minutes 

A darkly comedic look at our obsession with celebrity and narcissism, WELCOME TO ME stars Kristen Wiig (THE SKELETON TWINS) as a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who wins the Megamillions lottery, goes off medication and therapy, and buys her own talk show. Director Shira Piven explores what happens when every lottery-player’s fantasy comes true for a complication person. As Alice’s show on the local infomercial channel gains an audience, Alice realizes that viewers identify with her. What she doesn’t recognize is that her own hunger for fame may reflect a deeper need to be heard.

BLACK SOULS

COMING SOON:

A gripping mafia fable based on true events, BLACK SOULS is a tale of violence begetting violence in Calabria, a real-life mafia (‘Ndrangheta) seat in Southern Italy. Embodying the complex morality inherited by each successive generation, the Carbone family consists of three brothers – two engaged in the family business of international drug trade, and one who has remained in their ancestral home on the Mediterranean coast herding goats. When his son shoots up a bar owned by a rival family, the boy’s reckless actions create trouble that brings the whole family back home for the inevitable bloody showdown.

HEAVEN ADORES YOU

NR  |  1 hour 44 minutes

HEAVEN ADORES YOU is an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith (1969-2003). Since his death in 2003, many media-makers have attempted to tell the story of his creative genius through the lens of struggle, heartache, and addiction. Director Nickolas Rossi employs a different lens, placing music center-stage, creating a framework for Elliott to narrate the story of his life himself, through the filter of recorded conversations and interviews, with support from friends along the way. With great care, Rossi expertly weaves together 30+ interviews to create an intimate and personal history like never seen before.
