    Memphis Directed by Tim Sutton

     

    "In Tim Sutton's second feature, Memphis , the musician Willis Earl Beal plays a blues singer of the same name, who is facing a devastating artistic crisis--composing and performing block. His desperate efforts at self-healing take him on a spiritual journey through the city of the title as he encounters friends, confidants, and religious counsellor's dispensing hard-earned wisdom. Memphis itself plays a leading role in the film, by way of richly textured, sunlight-imbued images of streets and houses, churches and roads. With his loamy mosaic of drifting moods and troubled memories, Sutton offers a pictorial translation of the blues, a vision of an American classicism sheltered by the urban landscape’s mystical embrace.” -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Sundance Film Festival,

    Miami International Film Festival

    “Certainly a filmmaker with a distinct vision, taking some cues from the likes of Gus Van Sant or Jim Jarmusch, Sutton is confident in letting his lead command the screen for most of the film.”-Dan Mecca, The Film Stage

    "What continues to keep Memphis engaging is Seth Bomse's rhythmic edit and the stunning musical accompaniment - intertwined with a score by Beal himself - that feel as evocative of the place as they do the man.”-Ben Nicholson, Cinevue

    ROCKS IN MY POCKETS

    Directed by SIGNE BAUMANE/USA/Latvia/2014/88mins.

     

     

    Rocks In My Pockets is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving the women of my family, including myself, and our battles with madness. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one’s own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more. – Director Signe Baumane (In English)

     

    WINNER: Karlovy Vary Film Festival FIPRESCI Prize

     

    “...AN ENJOYABLE FUNNY AND COMPLEX TALE of the women in her family and their battles with madness, it is A WELCOME CONTRAST TO MODERN COMPUTER-GENERATED ANIMATION.”–Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY

     

    “Boasting a narrative of extraordinary complexity and density, stuffed with irony, humor and tales-within-tales... a fascinating and very personal look at mental illness, as well as familial and societal dictates and dynamics.”
    –Alissa Simon, VARIETY

     

    “A rollercoaster ride level of entertainment. ...BRINGS THE FORM OF ANIMATION BACK TO A MORE ADULT AND MATURE WORLD.”

    THROUGH A LENS DARKLY

    Black Photographers and

    the Emergence of a People

     

    Documentary by Thomas Allen Harris/2014/92mins.

    featuring the works of Carrie Mae Weems, Lyle Ashton Harris, Lorna Simpson, Anthony Barboza, Hank Willis Thomas,

    CocoFusco, & many others

    The first documentary to explore the role of photography in shaping the identity, aspirations and social emergence of African Americans from slavery to the present, Through a Lens Darkly probes the recesses of American history by discovering images that have been suppressed, forgotten and lost. Bringing to light the hidden and unknown photos shot by both professional and vernacular African American photographers, the film opens a window into lives, experiences and perspectives of black families that is absent from the traditional historical canon. The film introduces the viewer to a diverse yet focused community of storytellers who transform singular experiences into a communal journey of discovery–and a call to action.

     

    WINNER: Santa Barbara Film Festival Social Justice Award

    Los Angeles African Film Festoival Programmer’s Award

     

    "ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENTARIES OF THE YEAR."-Indiewire

     

    "CRITIC'S PICK! A lyrical, at times heartbroken, meditation on imagery and identity. The film is always absorbing to watch, but only once it’s over do you begin to grasp the extent of its ambitions..."-A. O. Scott, The New York Times

     

    "An extraordinary new documentary by filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris, is at-once a deep, rich dive into the history of African American photography… A MASTER CLASS IN VISUAL LITERACY."-Mia Tramz, Time Magazine

     

    "This documentary offers a much-needed correction to the historical record”-David Gonzalez, The New York Times

     

    "ENGROSSING...ENTRANCING...well-crafted. The old saw about a picture being worth a thousand words indicates the extraordinary power of the images 'Through a Lens Darkly' organizes so thoughtfully and compellingly."

    BOYHOOD

    Directed by RICHARD LINKLATER/2014/166mins.

    With Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

     

     

    Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

    Documentary by STEPHANIE SOECHTIG & JASON LINDSEY/USA/2009/75mins.

    Is access to clean drinking water a basic human right, or a commodity that should be bought and sold like any other? From the producers of Who Killed the Electric Car? and I.O.U.S.A., this timely documentary is a behind-the-scenes look into the obscure world of the bottled-water industry -- a mostly unregulated industry that privatizes our water and sells it back to us.

    ROCKS IN MY POCKETS

    Directed by SIGNE BAUMANE/USA/Latvia/2014/88mins.

     

     

    Rocks In My Pockets is a story of mystery and redemption. The film is based on true events involving the women of my family, including myself, and our battles with madness. It raises questions of how much family genetics determine who we are and if it is possible to outsmart one’s own DNA. The film is packed with visual metaphors, surreal images and my twisted sense of humor. It is an animated tale full of art, women, strange daring stories, Latvian accents, history, nature, adventure and more. – Director Signe Baumane (In English)

     

    WINNER: Karlovy Vary Film Festival FIPRESCI Prize

     

    “...AN ENJOYABLE FUNNY AND COMPLEX TALE of the women in her family and their battles with madness, it is A WELCOME CONTRAST TO MODERN COMPUTER-GENERATED ANIMATION.”–Mark Adams, SCREEN DAILY

     

    “Boasting a narrative of extraordinary complexity and density, stuffed with irony, humor and tales-within-tales... a fascinating and very personal look at mental illness, as well as familial and societal dictates and dynamics.”
    –Alissa Simon, VARIETY

     

    “A rollercoaster ride level of entertainment. ...BRINGS THE FORM OF ANIMATION BACK TO A MORE ADULT AND MATURE WORLD.”

    MBC GREAT DIRECTORS SERIES:

    The films of Joanna Hogg

     

    London-based director Joanna Hogg, who Martin Scorsese referred to as “a uniquely gifted filmmaker”, is a pioneer of the “New British Realism”, starting with Unrelated, her first feature. As one of the New Emerging Artists chosen by the 51st New York Film Festival, this "bold, dynamic new artist" was introduced to US audiences. Coinciding with the 2014 release of her newest film Exhibition, her previous works Unrelated and Archipelago have become available, acclaimed in Britain and film festivals for their realistic site-specific depictions of the complexities of the middle class. They are also known for the discovery of actor Tom Hiddleston (Only Lovers Left Alive, The Deep Blue Sea), who appears in all three films, making his feature film debut in Unrelated.

    Exclusive Florida Premiere!

    UNRELATED

    Directed by JOHANNA HOGG/UK/2007/100mins.

    With Tom Hiddleston, Emma Hiddleston, Katheryn Worth,

    Henry Lloyd-Hughes, Mary Roscoe

     

     

    Anna (Katheryn Worth) is the architypal British middle class woman, on a mission to escape her undisclosed relationship woes and other problems, to a rented villa in Tuscany with friends. The trip becomes a typically divisional experience where the “olds” are meant to socialize separately from the “youngs”, as is traditional, but Anna takes the risk of being experimental. As a result she makes discoveries about her friends and herself that change the course of all involved.

    Documentary/2014/91mins.

     

     

    An examination of challenges,

    hopes and dreams of the young residents

    of a rural American town.

     

    Andrew

    Off the highway, across from the railroad track, you'll find Andrew, 13, working on his bike, talking dreams with his dad or practicing dance moves with his twin sister. He's just like a lot of American kids, except that his days are also about survival.

     

    Harley

    Harley, 15, lives with his grandma now, and eight other members of his extended family, because his mom is in prison. He misses her deeply - but he's still the first guy in the room to crack a joke and make you laugh when you least expect it.

     

    Appachey

    Appachey, 12, dreams of becoming an art teacher in

    China and finds solace in skateboards – and, despite his smarts, has had to repeat the 6th grade, which doesn't fix all the things that are broken in his life.

    THROUGH A LENS DARKLY

    Black Photographers and

    the Emergence of a People

     

    Documentary by Thomas Allen Harris/2014/92mins.

    featuring the works of Carrie Mae Weems, Lyle Ashton Harris, Lorna Simpson, Anthony Barboza, Hank Willis Thomas,

    CocoFusco, & many others

    The first documentary to explore the role of photography in shaping the identity, aspirations and social emergence of African Americans from slavery to the present, Through a Lens Darkly probes the recesses of American history by discovering images that have been suppressed, forgotten and lost. Bringing to light the hidden and unknown photos shot by both professional and vernacular African American photographers, the film opens a window into lives, experiences and perspectives of black families that is absent from the traditional historical canon. The film introduces the viewer to a diverse yet focused community of storytellers who transform singular experiences into a communal journey of discovery–and a call to action.

    MBC is known for giving audiences opportunities to see some of the most challenging, provocative, acclaimed, and masterful international films of the year that usually do not get a wide theatrical release, but deserve attention. This is one of them. As a major example of what is referred to as “slow cinema”, Tsai Ming Liang has proven to be not only a pioneer but a master, with this being one his best works.

     

    Exclusive Florida Premiere Engagement!

    STRAY DOGS

    Directed by TSAI MING LIANG/France/Taiwan/2014/138mins.

     

    In the newest film from Tsai Ming-liang, a single father (Tsai mainstay Lee Kang-sheng) makes his meager living holding up an advertising placard on a traffic island in the middle of a busy highway. His children (Lu Yi-ching and Li Yi-cheng) wait out their days in supermarkets before they eat with their father and go to sleep in an abandoned building. As the father starts to come apart, a woman in the supermarket (Chen Shiang-chyi, also a Tsai regular) takes the children under her wing. There are real stray dogs to be fed in Tsai’s everyday apocalypse, but the title also refers to its principal characters, living the cruelest of existences on the ragged edges of the modern world. Stray Dogs is many things at once: minimal in its narrative content and syntax, as visually powerful as it is emotionally overwhelming, and bracingly pure in both its anger and its compassion. One of the finest works of an extraordinary artist. –

    The films of Joanna Hogg

     

    London-based director Joanna Hogg, who Martin Scorsese referred to as “a uniquely gifted filmmaker”, is a pioneer of the “New British Realism”, starting with Unrelated, her first feature. As one of the New Emerging Artists chosen by the 51st New York Film Festival, this "bold, dynamic new artist" was introduced to US audiences. Coinciding with the 2014 release of her newest film Exhibition, her previous works Unrelated and Archipelago have become available, acclaimed in Britain and film festivals for their realistic site-specific depictions of the complexities of the middle class. They are also known for the discovery of actor Tom Hiddleston (Only Lovers Left Alive, The Deep Blue Sea), who appears in all three films, making his feature film debut in Unrelated.

    Exclusive Florida Premiere!

    ARCHIPELAGO

    Directed by JOHANNA HOGG/UK/2010/114mins.

    With Tom Hiddleston, Lydia Leonard, Christopher Baker, Kate Fahy

    Archipelago is Johanna Hogg’s second feature film, a quietly devastating portrayal of a family in emotional crisis, and it resonates with many middle class families that have gone on vacation together. Edward (Tom Hiddleston) is preparing to leave for a year of voluntary service in

    Africa. His mother Patricia (Kate Fahy) and his sister Cynthia (Lydia Leonard) decide to gather the family together in Sicily , as a farewell trip to say goodbye to Edward. Hired cook Rose (Amy Lloyd) and painting teacher Christopher (Christopher Baker, playing himself), though brought in to help, only serve to bring the family's anxieties into sharper focus. When Edward's father is delayed, the unspoken forces of absence and loss bring the family's buried anger and repressed tension to the surface.

    Winner: Special Commendation at

    THE BLUE ROOM

    (La chambre bleue)

    Directed by MATHIEU AMALRIC/France/2014/76mins

    Based on the novel by Georges Simenon

    With Mathieu Amalric, Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau, Laurent Poitreneau  

     

     

    The new film by Mathieu Amalric (Actor and Best Director winner at Cannes 2012), is a seductive hommage to the classic works of Claude Chabrol and early Alain Resnais. A man and a woman, secretly in love, are alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. “Life is different when one lives it and peels it off afterwards”. What happened? What is he accused of?

    “While cinephiles are aware of Amalric's range as an actor, he's displaying an equally fearless and eclectic approach to his filmography as a director”

    -Boyd van Hoeij, IndieWire

     

    “French actor Mathieu Amalric has simultaneously carved out a career as an accomplished filmmaker with a handful of features that are as idiosyncratic as they are intriguing…The Blue Room takes a cue from both classic Hollywood noir and the time-shuffling narratives of the late Alain Resnais, telling a familiar story in ways that can feel compellingly new.” -Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    RICH HILL

    Directed by ANDREW DROZ PALERMO

    & TRACY DROZ TRAGOS

    Documentary/2014/91mins.

     

     

    An examination of challenges,

    hopes and dreams of the young residents

    of a rural American town.

     

    Andrew

    Off the highway, across from the railroad track, you'll find Andrew, 13, working on his bike, talking dreams with his dad or practicing dance moves with his twin sister. He's just like a lot of American kids, except that his days are also about survival.

     

    Harley

    Harley, 15, lives with his grandma now, and eight other members of his extended family, because his mom is in prison. He misses her deeply - but he's still the first guy in the room to crack a joke and make you laugh when you least expect it.

     

    Appachey

    Appachey, 12, dreams of becoming an art teacher in

    China and finds solace in skateboards – and, despite his smarts, has had to repeat the 6th grade, which doesn't fix all the things that are broken in his life.

    THE BLUE ROOM

    (La chambre bleue)

    Directed by MATHIEU AMALRIC/France/2014/76mins

    Based on the novel by Georges Simenon

    With Mathieu Amalric, Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau, Laurent Poitreneau  

     

     

    The new film by Mathieu Amalric (Actor and Best Director winner at Cannes 2012), is a seductive hommage to the classic works of Claude Chabrol and early Alain Resnais. A man and a woman, secretly in love, are alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. “Life is different when one lives it and peels it off afterwards”. What happened? What is he accused of?

    “A WONDERFULLY SURREAL YET SUBTLE NOIR THRILLER…AMALRIC HAS CRAFTED A FASCINATING AND ENGAGING FILM…it can certainly stand in the grand French tradition of stories of crime and passion…it's not about the what, but the how, and how memories are constructed and remembered after the passion is gone…”-Shelagh Rowan, Twitch

    “While cinephiles are aware of Amalric's range as an actor, he's displaying an equally fearless and eclectic approach to his filmography as a director”

    -Boyd van Hoeij, IndieWire

     

    “French actor Mathieu Amalric has simultaneously carved out a career as an accomplished filmmaker with a handful of features that are as idiosyncratic as they are intriguing…The Blue Room takes a cue from both classic Hollywood noir and the time-shuffling narratives of the late Alain Resnais, telling a familiar story in ways that can feel compellingly new.” -Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    A THOUSAND TIMES GOODNIGHT

    Directed by ERIC POPPE/2014/Norway/117mins.

    With Juliette Binoche, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau

     

     

    Rebecca (Juliette Binoche) is one of the world's top war photojournalists, capturing dangerous and chilling images in the most dire landscapes, all in an effort to shed light on the real cost of modern war. But she's also a wife and mother, leaving behind a husband and two young daughters every time she travels to a new combat zone. With an offer to photograph a refugee camp in Kenya, a place allegedly so safe that daughter Steph (Lauryn Canny) is allowed to join her, Rebecca comes face to face with just how much she risks each time she steps back into the fray.

    MBC GREAT DIRECTORS SERIES:

    The films of Joanna Hogg

     

    London-based director Joanna Hogg, who Martin Scorsese referred to as “a uniquely gifted filmmaker”, is a pioneer of the “New British Realism”, starting with Unrelated, her first feature. As one of the New Emerging Artists chosen by the 51st New York Film Festival, this "bold, dynamic new artist" was introduced to US audiences. Coinciding with the 2014 release of her newest film Exhibition, her previous works Unrelated and Archipelago have become available, acclaimed in Britain and film festivals for their realistic site-specific depictions of the complexities of the middle class. They are also known for the discovery of actor Tom Hiddleston (Only Lovers Left Alive, The Deep Blue Sea), who appears in all three films, making his feature film debut in Unrelated.

    Exclusive Florida Premiere!

    EXHIBITION

    Directed by JOHANNA HOGG/UK/2014/104mins.

    With Tom Hiddleston, Viviane Albertine, Liam Gillak,Harry Kershaw, Mary Roscoe

    Johanna Hogg’s latest film, in her signature place-specific fashion, presents a scenario where the elaborately designed house is as important as the two main characters in the story. When D (Viv Albertine) and H (Liam Gillick) decide to sell the home they have loved and lived in for two decades, they begin a process of saying goodbye to their shared history under the same roof. The upheaval causes anxieties to surface, and wife and performance artist D struggles to control the personal and creative aspects of her life with H. Dreams, memories, and fears have all imprinted themselves on their home, which exists as a container for their lives and has played such an important role in their relationship.

    Official Selection:

    "A MASTERFUL CINEMATIC ENIGMA"-Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

    "An EXQUISITELY CRAFTED AND THRILLINGLY AMBIGUOUS chamber drama."-Paul Dallas, Cinema Scope

    THE BLUE ROOM

    (La chambre bleue)

    Directed by MATHIEU AMALRIC/France/2014/76mins

    Based on the novel by Georges Simenon

    With Mathieu Amalric, Léa Drucker, Stéphanie Cléau, Laurent Poitreneau  

     

     

    The new film by Mathieu Amalric (Actor and Best Director winner at Cannes 2012), is a seductive hommage to the classic works of Claude Chabrol and early Alain Resnais. A man and a woman, secretly in love, are alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, Julien fails to find the words. “Life is different when one lives it and peels it off afterwards”. What happened? What is he accused of?

     

    Official Selection:

    “While cinephiles are aware of Amalric's range as an actor, he's displaying an equally fearless and eclectic approach to his filmography as a director”

    LISTEN UP PHILIP

    Directed by ALEX ROSS PERRY/2014/109mins.

    With Jason Schwartzman, Elizabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce

     

     

    A complex, intimate, and highly idiosyncratic comedy by Alex Ross Perry (The Color Wheel) who is quickly becoming a major voice in American independent cinema, Listen Up Philip is a literary look at the triumph of reality over the human spirit. Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss), and his indifference to promoting his own work. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject -himself.

    STING OF DEATH

    “The world’s only giant half-man half-jellyfish movie”

     

     

     

    Directed by BILL GREFE/1965/80mins.

    With Joe Morrison, Valerie Hawkins,

    John Vella, Jack Hagle, Doug Hobart

    Special Singing Guest Star Neil Sedaka

    Written by Al Dempsey and William Kerwin

     

     

    Shot on location on Miami Beach and at Reel Studios in Miami, with additional footage in the Everglades, and underwater scenes shot in Rainbow Springs FL, Sting of Death represents the height of the “Miami B Movie” period of wacky horror films produced in the 1960’s. Director Bill Grefé brings his action film finesse and creative shooting style to the science-fictiony horror revamp of Creature of the Black Lagoon meets Frankenstein meets Beach Blanket Bingo and Psycho, to boot. Sting of Death is an example of what filmmakers were getting away with, with almost no budget, to attract Drive-In customers. It is also one of the craziest and most ridiculously fun horror films ever, complete with a monster that has a plastic bag for a head and a custom-made theme song and dance, “Do the Jellyfish”, by none other than Neil Sedaka, who happened to be playing in a nightclub in Miami during filming, so, why not?

    The actual story?  A marine biologist and his two assistants are experimenting on Portugeuse men-of-war “on the edge of the Everglades". One of the assistants, Egon, has secret plans in a hidden grotto to overcome his complexes made more intense by his disfigured face, exaggerated by a visiting group of teenagers invited by the doctor’s daughter who Egon is in love with. Egon’s experimenting leads to revenge and eventual terrifyingly hilarious chaos…but all he really wanted was a girlfriend.      

    “This is what happens when science tampers with the mysteries of the sea and creates a creature that is half mad man and half a slimy tentacled underwater horror!”-the original trailer for Sting of Death

    “There’s nothing better than a really ridiculous monster. Those are the ones we remember the most”-Basket Case director Frank Henonlotter, The Sting of Death’sbiggest fan
