    WED, NOV 21, 6:30p:

    Miami Exclusive Premiere Engagement!

    MONROVIA, INDIANA

    Documentary directed FREDERICK WISEMAN/2018/2hr, 23mins.


    MONROVIA, INDIANA explores a small town in rural, mid-America and illustrates how values like community service, duty, spiritual life, generosity and authenticity are formed, experienced and lived along with conflicting stereotypes. The film gives a complex and nuanced view of daily life in Monrovia and provides some understanding of a way of life whose influence and force have not always been recognized or understood in the big cities on the east and west coasts of America and in other countries.

    "MONROVIA, INDIANA IS AN IMMERSIVE WONDER, thanks to Wiseman's masterful ability to assemble images that lead from one painterly visual to the next."Eric Kohn, Indiewire, Full Review

    "THIS IS CLASSIC WISEMAN, a film that takes us into the heart of a community and reveals its inner workings, comforts, fractures and traumas."Lee Marshall, Screen International, Full Review

    "As always with Frederick Wiseman, it's the quotidian gestures that haunt one in Monrovia, Indiana."Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine, Full Review

    "IT’S HARD TO THINK OF ANOTHER FILMMAKER WITH THE SAME PRICELESS ABILITY TO SHOW LIFE, in all its mad variety and with such clarity, on - and more importantly to - both sides."Rory O'Connor, The Film Stage, Full Review

    A One Night Only USA Premiere

    Screening of the Unrated Director’s Cut!

    THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT

    Directed by LARS VON TRIER/Denmark/2018/155mins.

    With Matt Dillon, Bruno Ganz, Uma Thurman, Riley Keough


    THE HOUSE THAT JACK BUILT takes place in 1970s USA. We follow the highly intelligent Jack through five incidents and are introduced to the murders that define Jack’s development as a serial killer.  We experience the story from Jack’s point of view. He views each murder as an artwork in itself, even though his dysfunction gives him problems in the outside world. Despite the fact that the final and inevitable police intervention is drawing ever near (which both provokes and puts pressure on Jack) he is – contrary to all logic – set on taking greater and greater chances. Along the way we experience Jack’s descriptions of his personal condition, problems and thoughts through a recurring conversation with the unknown Verge – a grotesque mixture of sophistry mixed with an almost childlike self-pity and in-depth explanations of, for Jack, dangerous and difficult maneuvers.

    Official Selection: Cannes Film Festival, Special Out of Competition Screening

    “100 ON METACRITIC: The film becomes an even broader consideration of individual fascinations and follies, OF WAYS OF RESPONDING TO ART WITHOUT THE BOUNDARIES OF MORALITY AND REASON.”-Sam C. Mac, Slant Magazine

    “The House That Jack Built is an often-horrifying, sadistic dive into a psychotic internal monologue, with intellectual detours about the nature of art in the world today, and puts considerable effort into stimulating discomfort at key moments. If you meet the work on those terms, or at least accept the challenge of wrestling with impeccable filmmaking that dances across moral barriers, IT’S ALSO POSSIBLY BRILLIANT.”-Eric Kohn, IndieWire

    “Whether there’s any worth to be found in The House That Jack Built will depend on the viewer’s interest in delving deep into von Trier’s tortured psyche. It’s unlikely anyone will empathize with him and it’s certain many will find the film execrable, but THOSE WILLING TO INDULGE HIS EXCESS ARE OFFERED A WEALTH OF FASCINATING MATERIAL.”-Giovanni Marchini Camia, The Film Stage

    The film continues with a premiere theatrical run

    at MBC on December 28!

    MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

    Highlights of World Cinema

    1940s

    “Late Noir”

    Partnering with Masters of Jewish Cinema

    in collaboration with MJFF

    THE HITCH-HIKER

    Directed by IDA LUPINO/1953/1hr, 11mins.

    With Edmond O’Brien, Frank Lovejoy, William Talman


    THE HITCH-HIKER UK poster, 1953, from the #MBCarchive

    The only true film noir ever directed by a woman, this tour-de-force thriller is a classic, tension-packed, three-way dance of death about two middle-class American homebodies on vacation in Mexico on a long-awaited fishing trip. Suddenly their car and their very lives are commandeered by psychopathic serial killer.

    "A woman of extraordinary talents, and one of those

    talents was directing. Her considerable accomplishments

    as a filmmaker...represent a singular achievement

    in American cinema."-Martin Scorsese, The New York Times

    PLUS:

    MBC Interactive Archive Retrospective:

    OVERVIEW OF THE 1940s

    The MBC Interactive Archive Project debuts the 1940s tonight…

    after 50 years (so far) of collecting and months of cataloging, organizing, grouping and scanning images to represent the history of cinema illustrated by vintage memorabilia and ephemera. Tonight we reveal the 1940s section of the project, from World War II, through Film Noir in the USA and France, escapist musicals, and another great decade of the Master of Suspense. Every three months we will debut a new decade of images from the archive. This is the third installment, complemented by an ongoing MBC retrospective of highlights of world cinema. This overview will reveal a world of images to tell the history of cinema in a theatrical setting. Hope to see you there!”-Dana Keith, MBC Founder & Director, and collector!

    Followed by a reception featuring Coppola wines

    The MBC Interactive Archive Project is made possible by the generous support of the

    John S. and James L. Knight Foundation

    as part of its Knight Arts Challenge,

    with additional support from

    The Coppola Winery and Nespresso

    NARCISSISTER ORGAN PLAYER

    Documentary directed by NARCISSISTER/2018/91mins.


    One of the contemporary art world’s most acclaimed mixed-media & performance artists, the masked and merkin-clad Narcissister is the subject of this smart, sassy documentary that showcases her spectacle-rich approach to explorations of gender, racial identity, and sexuality. Directed by the enigmatic artist herself, the film deconstructs her celebrated stage shows which combine dance, elaborate costumes, pop music hits, unabashed eroticism and heavy doses of humor. This doc goes behind her iconic mask - revealing her experience growing up and feeling ostracized in blonde-haired, blue-eyed Southern California as the child of a Sephardic Jewish mother and an African-American father. Narcissister Organ Player is a thrilling, profound and utterly moving experience.
    This film contains sexually explicit material.

    "[A]n enigmatic performance (and performer) that thrives in absurdity yet isn’t afraid to play with sentimentality."-The Austin Chronicle

    "Though her work is ironic and provocative, the film is intimate and emotionally raw...her dedication to an art that reflects her experiences with surreal and playful inventiveness."-The Boston

    World Premiere Screening!

    BURNING SHADOW

    Directed by ALEXANDRE NAHON/2018/

    With Matthew Dennis Lewis, Roger Guenveur Smith,

    Julie Delpy, Roxane Mesquida

    Sound design by Sebastian Chenut


    Burning Shadow is a twisted, supernatural thriller about obsession and the darkness of the human soul. Charlie (Matthew Dennis Lewis, Godless) is a young loner who works at a diner for a mirthless boss (Julie Delpy, Before Midnight), struggling to even pay his rent. Seemingly his only friend is regular customer Mr. Jones (Roger Guenveur Smith, American Gangster), an affable businessman with ties to the mob. Jones also runs a nightclub which Charlie visits and soon begins his obsession with one of the dancers, Summer (Roxane Mesquida, Kiss of the Damned). Charlie crosses paths with a blind homeless man who is his exact double, a doppelganger. What follows is a haunting decent into fear, desperation, infatuation and greed, told through the lens of classic film noir, with a celestial twist.

    Burning Shadow is the feature directorial debut of filmmaker Alexandre Nahon. Nahon co-wrote 2 Days in New York starring Chris Rock and Julie Delpy. He is also a reknowned photographer, having shot campaigns for Macy’s and music videos for such artists as Lykke Li and Adan Jodorowsky.

    The film will be followed by Q&A with Director ALEXANDRE NAHON and the opening reception of the MBC exhibition of his 3/D photography.

    Paul Schrader at Work, Upstate New York, July, 2017.
