Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down.item17

MAGGIE'S PLAN
Opens Opens June 10

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore make a pleasing triangle in Rebecca Miller’s smart romantic comedy. Maggie Hardin (Gerwig) is a vibrant and practical thirty-something New Yorker working in education, who without success in finding love, decides now is the time to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Hawke), an anthropology professor and struggling novelist, Maggie falls in love for the first time, and adjusts her plans for motherhood. Complicating matters, John is in an unhappy marriage with Georgette Harding (Moore), an ambitious academic who is driven by her work. With some help from Maggie’s best friends, married couple Tony (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways. Maggie learns that sometimes destiny should be left to its own devices.item8

NUTS!
Opens Friday, July 1
Meet Filmmaker Penny Lane
in Attendance Opening Day

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

Inventive and wildly fun, NUTS! recounts the unbelievable true story of John Romulus Brinkley, a Kansas doctor who discovered in 1917 that he could cure impotence by transplanting goat testicles into men. From there, the story only gets more bizarre. Mixing hand-drawn animated reenactments, interviews, archival footage and a very unreliable narrator, NUTS! traces Brinkley's rise from poverty and obscurity to the heights of celebrity, wealth and influence. Along the way, he transplants thousands of goat testicles, amasses an enormous fortune, is (sort of) elected Governor of Kansas, invents junk mail and the infomercial, builds the world's most powerful radio station and generally annoys the heck out of the establishment.

logo20161Filmmaker Penny Lane (OUR NIXON) has skillfully borrowed a page from her subject - charming viewers into believing the unbelievable, building their trust and excitement, until the final chapter bares the painful truth and reveals the doctor for what he truly was. NUTS! reminds us that our love of (and need for) compelling narratives is exactly what makes us so endlessly susceptible to being conned.

The incredible true story of Mohammed Assaf, a young Palestinian singer who was catapulted to worldwide fame after winning the television competition “Arab Idol.” Gaza. Synonymous to so many with conflict, destruction and despair but to Mohammed Assaf, and his sister Nour, Gaza is their home and their playground. It’s where they, along with their best friends Ahmad and Omar, play music, football and dare to dream big. Their band might play on second hand, beaten up instruments but their ambitions are sky-high. Even as the siege around Gaza intensifies, the prison around them ever more forbidding, Mohammed knows he has a rare gift. To make people smile and forget their troubles. And so, in front of him on TV one evening lies an impossible dream: the auditions for Arab Idol, the most popular show in the Arab world, are taking place in Cairo. The borders are closed. There is no way out. Somehow, he finds a way and makes it in front of the judges in Egypt. From there, destiny awaits, a chance to change his life and give a voiceless people the greatest feeling of all: the freedom to love, live and feel free.item13

ALMOST HOLY
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

The new film from the Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning creators of BLOOD BROTHER comes a new film the Village Voice has dubbed “the best superhero vigilate movie of the year.” The fall of The Soviet Union left Ukraine in a wake of social and political upheaval. The crippled economy and corrupt infrastructure produced little hope. Many of the nation’s youth succumbed to drug addiction and alcoholism while losing their homes. After watching these issues for more than a decade, a Mariupol pastor and civic leader named Gennadiy Mokhnenko took matters into his own hands, forcibly removing children from the streets or unsuitable homes and taking them to his rehab and housing facility, Pilgrim Republic. The courageous film follows Mokhnenko’s quest over the course of the last 15 years, as some of his wards thrive and some expire, offering a timely glimpse into a world where so few care about the decline of their so-called lesser citizens. Winner of numerous documentary awards including the Kansas International Film Festival Jury Award.

GURUKULAM
GURUKULAM
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

In vivid and sensuous detail, Gurukulam follows a group of students and their teacher as they confront fundamental questions about the nature of reality and self-identity at a remote forest ashram in southern India. Daily chores, meditation, ritual, and rigorous study are woven together connecting the natural and spiritual worlds in moments of surprising revelation and comic contradiction. Deeply observational and experiential, Gurukulam evokes the presence of the place and a tactile sense of the sacred. The richly layered soundscape and the intimate imagery bring us into a place of extraordinary beauty and simplicity. From Swami Dayananda's first lesson: "Saying is only an expression of what you see," Gurukulam is a rare invitation to look, listen, and experience a contemplative rhythm of life as old as the Bhagavad Gita and as new as present-day India.item15
