    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    THE KINDERGARDEN TEACHER

    Directed by NADAV LAPID/Israel/2015/119mins.

    With Sarit Larry, Avi Shnaidman, Lior Raz, Hamuchtar

    Nadav Lapid's The Kindergarten Teacher is the story of a teacher who becomes at first enchanted, and then ultimately consumed by the poetic genius of her five-year-old student. As the titular protagonist, Nira, discovers that her young student, Yoav, has an otherworldly talent for language and poetry, she slowly and progressively becomes interested in cultivating the boy's gift. But when fascination morphs into obsession, Nira pushes the boundaries of her relationship with the boy and his family in an attempt to protect his talent before he passes from boyhood to adolescence, and his purity is lost. Following his critically acclaimed debut Policemen, Lapid demonstrates the aesthetic vision of a true auteur, combining a verite approach with thrilling a cinematic narrative that brings into sharp focus the dangers of both mediocrity and passion. (In Hebrew with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Cannes Film Festival

    “One of the standouts in this year’s New Directors/New Films Festival”-Manohla Dargis, New York Times

    “The Kindergarten Teacher - the film as well as the character - yearns for different values, for intensity, beauty and meaning. Its sobering lesson is that the search for those things is most likely to end in madness, confusion and violence.”-A.O Scott, New York Times

    “Lapid's thrilling use of the camera, the way his unbalanced frame and his imaginative staging work with the precision of his story, results in something new and genuinely unnerving.”-Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

    THE LOOK OF SILENCE

    Directed by JOSHUA OPPENHEIMER/Denmark/Indonesia/2015/102mins.

    THE LOOK OF SILENCE is Joshua Oppenheimer’s powerful companion piece to the Oscar®-nominated THE ACT OF KILLING. Through Oppenheimer’s footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence. (In Indonesian with English subtitles).

    MELANCHOLALALANDtm

    A Live Transmedia Opera directed by JOEY BARGSTEN

    Featuring libretto by THEA ZIMMER     

    It's the 21st century and time to re-invent opera but in a way that's more fun, less pretentious, and a little messed up. Made possible by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, MelanchoLalaland™ —by composer/professor Joey Bargsten—brings together live vocalists in an experimental mix with animation and video, all set to Bargsten’s electronic music score.

    With its libretto by Thea Zimmer, MelanchoLalaland’s dystopic setting lands you in the not-too-distant future where global corporations —like Melancuria, Inc.—specialize in antimelancholia drugs and drive-through Masturpods. Caught up in all the timeless existential angst is the opera’s “live” tenor, Harold Booster Krant—Melancuria’s leading aesthetic experience engineer—who’s surrounded by disgruntled employees, dissatisfied girlfriends, apathetic ancient Latin choruses, dubious deities in dreadlocks, cheesy space aliens and Melancuria’s mobs of enlightenment-challenged customers. Come join the tragifun!

    THE LOOK OF SILENCE

    Directed by JOSHUA OPPENHEIMER/Denmark/Indonesia/2015/102mins.

    THE LOOK OF SILENCE is Joshua Oppenheimer’s powerful companion piece to the Oscar®-nominated THE ACT OF KILLING. Through Oppenheimer’s footage of perpetrators of the 1965 Indonesian genocide, a family of survivors discovers how their son was murdered, as well as the identities of the killers. The documentary focuses on the youngest son, an optometrist named Adi, who decides to break the suffocating spell of submission and terror by doing something unimaginable in a society where the murderers remain in power: he confronts the men who killed his brother and, while testing their eyesight, asks them to accept responsibility for their actions. This unprecedented film initiates and bears witness to the collapse of fifty years of silence. (In Indonesian with English subtitles).

    THE KINDERGARDEN TEACHER

    Directed by NADAV LAPID/Israel/2015/119mins.

    With Sarit Larry, Avi Shnaidman, Lior Raz, Hamuchtar

    Nadav Lapid's The Kindergarten Teacher is the story of a teacher who becomes at first enchanted, and then ultimately consumed by the poetic genius of her five-year-old student. As the titular protagonist, Nira, discovers that her young student, Yoav, has an otherworldly talent for language and poetry, she slowly and progressively becomes interested in cultivating the boy's gift. But when fascination morphs into obsession, Nira pushes the boundaries of her relationship with the boy and his family in an attempt to protect his talent before he passes from boyhood to adolescence, and his purity is lost. Following his critically acclaimed debut Policemen, Lapid demonstrates the aesthetic vision of a true auteur, combining a verite approach with thrilling a cinematic narrative that brings into sharp focus the dangers of both mediocrity and passion. (In Hebrew with English subtitles).

    PHOENIX is the latest teamwork between German director Christian Petzold and actress Nina Hoss (after Barbara, Yella, Jerichow, Wolfsburg). A disfigured concentration-camp survivor (Nina Hoss), unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband (Ronald Zehrfeld) who might have betrayed her to the Nazis.

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    Cinemascope Magazine interview with director Christian Petzold

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Phoenix is cool, clean, knowing, full of references to other movies—a stylish, belated film noir”-Michael Wood, ArtForum

    “One of the standouts in this year’s New Directors/New Films Festival”-Manohla Dargis, New York Times

    “The Kindergarten Teacher - the film as well as the character - yearns for different values, for intensity, beauty and meaning. Its sobering lesson is that the search for those things is most likely to end in madness, confusion and violence.”-A.O Scott, New York Times

    “Lapid's thrilling use of the camera, the way his unbalanced frame and his imaginative staging work with the precision of his story, results in something new and genuinely unnerving.”-Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine

    THE SECOND MOTHER

    Directed by ANNA MUYLAERT/Brazil/2015/114mins.

    With Regina Case, Michael Joelsas, Camila Mardila, Karine Teles

    An excitingly fresh take on some classic themes and ideas, THE SECOND MOTHER centers around Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper in modern day Sao Paulo. Val is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers’ needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val’s estranged daughter Jessica suddenly shows up the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray. Jessica is smart, confident, and ambitious, and refuses to accept the upstairs/downstairs dynamic, testing relationships and loyalties and forcing everyone to reconsider what family really means.

    (In Portuguese with English subtitles.)

    WINNER: Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for Acting

    Berlin Film Festival Audience Award, CICAE Panorama Prize

    ★★★★★ There's a refreshing political edge to Muylaert's well-structured script. With Jéssica's arrival, class barriers are broken down, petty snobberies are revealed and weaknesses uncovered…This brilliant, beautifully observed comedy is a joy to watch throughout. The Second Mother's narrative works on so many levels, reflected in the film's ambiguous title, and the characterisation is flawless.”-Lucy Popescu, Cinevue

    "Muylaert gently probes at ideas of class…The director explores snobbery through humour…both laugh out loud funny and a metaphor for the ridiculousness of trying to maintain social order in a changing society.”-A Wilkeson, Eye For Film

    PHOENIX

    Directed by CHRISTIAN PETZOLD/Germany/2014/98mins.

    With Nina Hoss, Ronald Zehrfeld, Nina Kunzendorf

    PHOENIX is the latest teamwork between German director Christian Petzold and actress Nina Hoss (after Barbara, Yella, Jerichow, Wolfsburg). A disfigured concentration-camp survivor (Nina Hoss), unrecognizable after facial reconstruction surgery, searches ravaged postwar Berlin for the husband (Ronald Zehrfeld) who might have betrayed her to the Nazis. (In German with English subtitles).

    Official Selection: Toronto, London and Miami Film Festivals

    WINNER: Hong Kong Film Festival SIGNIS Award

    San Sebastian Film Festival FIPRESCI Prize

    Seattle Film Festival Best Actress

    Lisbon Film Festival Special Jury Prize

    “After our first three movies together, I saw something in her that was like a partisan. She didn’t want to be so beautiful. She doesn’t want to be in love. She doesn’t want to show emotions. She doesn’t want to show her body. She wants to hide herself. She doesn’t want to do advertisements. I liked what I saw on the editing table. She isn’t playing to the light. She’s going to the darkness. She’s always playing. We talked about it and reflected on it and she liked that idea.”

    Cinemascope Magazine interview with director Christian Petzold

    “Metacritic Score 100: Both A POWERFUL ALLEGORY for post-war regeneration and a rich Hitchcockian tale of mistaken identity, Phoenix once again proves that German filmmaker Christian Petzold and his favorite star, Nina Hoss, are CLEARLY ONE OF THE BEST DIRECTOR ACTOR DUOS WORKING IN MOVIES TODAY.”-Jordan Mintzer, Hollywood Reporter

    “Petzold distills a familiar atmosphere to create a work veiled in vibrant, cohesive, sensitively stimulating power.”-Nicola Grozdanov, The Playlist

    “HOSS’ PORTRAYAL OF A WOMAN AT ODDS WITH HER SURROUNDING IS IN A CLASS BY ITSELF”-Eric Kohn, Indiewire

    “Because Petzold is such a gifted storyteller, with the lean, driving narrative sense of the film noir masters, he also keeps those twists and turns chugging smoothly along, building to a climax so expertly orchestrated that one imagines he started with it in mind and worked the rest of the movie backward from there.”-Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Phoenix is cool, clean, knowing, full of references to other movies—a stylish, belated film noir”-Michael Wood, ArtForum

    “3/D MANIA 1915-2015”

    A series at MBC celebrating the

    centennial of 3/D cinema presentation!

    3-D RARITIES 

    Presented in high quality digital 3-D, all films in 3-D Rarities have been restored and mastered in 2K from original 35mm elements for optimum quality. Meticulously re-aligned shot by shot for precise registration of the original left/right elements, these historic 3-D films have never before looked this good!

    The first documented public exhibition of a 3-D motion picture took place on June 10, 1915 at New York’s Astor Theatre. To commemorate the centennial, the 3-D Film Archive is proud to present 3-D Rarities, an amazing collection of stereoscopic treasures dating back to the dawn of 3-D cinematography.

    They include: Kelley’s Plasticon Pictures: Thru’ the Trees, Washington, D.C., the earliest extant 3-D demonstration film from 1922 with incredible footage of Washington and New York City; New Dimensions (aka Motor Rhythm) the first domestic full color 3-D film originally shown at the New York World’s Fair in May 1940; Thrills for You, a fascinating promotional film for the Pennsylvania Railroad, first shown in 1940 at the Golden Gate International Exposition in San Francisco; Boo Moon, an excellent example of color stereoscopic animation from 1953; Doom Town, a controversial anti-atomic testing film which was mysteriously pulled from theatrical release after a few play-dates in July 1953; I’ll Sell My Shirt, a burlesque comedy unseen in 3-D for over 60 years; The Maze coming attraction trailer with fantastic 3-D production design by the legendary William Cameron Menzies, and much more. 

     “A truly historical compendium of fascinating filmic oddities, the likes of which one wouldn’t expect to see screened anywhere.”–DVD Savant

    “This set offers a great mix of quality effects and archival material that cinephiles will want in their collections, presented in terrific quality with some interesting and informative extras. You aren’t getting this stuff on Netflix anytime soon.”–DVD Talk

    “A treasure trove of fascinating films” for its extraordinary technical restoration. . . Although the film footage in this collection was produced between 1922 and 1953, the 3-D effects in these short films surpass most modern 3-D efforts.”–Home Theater Forum

    BREATHE

    Directed by MÉLANIE LAURENT/France/2015/91mins.

    With Joséphine Japy, Lou de Laâge

    A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, BREATHE, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay too much attention to her. School holds no surprises either and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah, a hip new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two girls form an instant connection. Sarah brings the excitement Charlie so desperately seeks, and Charlie is a stable influence on the wild-child. Through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways, their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and the teens soon find themselves on a trajectory toward an inevitable and extraordinary collapse, one so jarring neither could have ever seen it coming. (In French with English subtitles).

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    Cannes, Toronto, AFI Film Festivals

    “OUTSTANDING…Joséphine Japy and Lou de Laâge give phenomenal performances in this tale of a relationship that curdles into an anguished, increasingly vicious power struggle.”-Stephen Holden, New York Times
    “Mélanie Laurent offers A COMPELLING, SUPERBLY ACTED PORTRAIT of an adolescent friendship perched on the brink of obsession.”
    -Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Mélanie Laurent is best known as an actress, but Breathe, her assured, potent second feature as a director, gives us good reason to pay attention to what she's doing behind the camera as well as in front of it….Laurent has such a deft touch - and is so delicately in tune with her two lead actresses - that she makes you believe you're seeing it all for the first time.”-Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

    Directed by MÉLANIE LAURENT/France/2015/91mins.

    With Joséphine Japy, Lou de Laâge

    A taut, nuanced story about the depths of female friendships and the dark side of teenage infatuations, BREATHE, the sophomore directorial effort from Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds, Beginners), is an assured adaptation of the sensational French young adult novel of the same name. Charlie is seventeen and bored. Her estranged parents are too caught up in their own drama to pay too much attention to her. School holds no surprises either and Charlie grows tired of her staid friends. Enter Sarah, a hip new transfer student who brings with her an alluring air of boldness and danger. The two girls form an instant connection. Sarah brings the excitement Charlie so desperately seeks, and Charlie is a stable influence on the wild-child. Through shared secrets, love interests and holiday getaways, their relationship deepens to levels of unspoken intimacy. But with this intimacy comes jealousy and unrealistic expectations, and the teens soon find themselves on a trajectory toward an inevitable and extraordinary collapse, one so jarring neither could have ever seen it coming. (In French with English subtitles).

    “OUTSTANDING…Joséphine Japy and Lou de Laâge give phenomenal performances in this tale of a relationship that curdles into an anguished, increasingly vicious power struggle.”-Stephen Holden, New York Times
    “Mélanie Laurent offers A COMPELLING, SUPERBLY ACTED PORTRAIT of an adolescent friendship perched on the brink of obsession.”
    -Scott Foundas, Variety

    “Mélanie Laurent is best known as an actress, but Breathe, her assured, potent second feature as a director, gives us good reason to pay attention to what she's doing behind the camera as well as in front of it….Laurent has such a deft touch - and is so delicately in tune with her two lead actresses - that she makes you believe you're seeing it all for the first time.”-Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice

    THE SECOND MOTHER

    Directed by ANNA MUYLAERT/Brazil/2015/114mins.

    With Regina Case, Michael Joelsas, Camila Mardila, Karine Teles

    An excitingly fresh take on some classic themes and ideas, THE SECOND MOTHER centers around Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper in modern day Sao Paulo. Val is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers’ needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val’s estranged daughter Jessica suddenly shows up the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray. Jessica is smart, confident, and ambitious, and refuses to accept the upstairs/downstairs dynamic, testing relationships and loyalties and forcing everyone to reconsider what family really means.

    (In Portuguese with English subtitles.)

    WINNER: Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize for Acting

    Berlin Film Festival Audience Award, CICAE Panorama Prize

    ★★★★★ There's a refreshing political edge to Muylaert's well-structured script. With Jéssica's arrival, class barriers are broken down, petty snobberies are revealed and weaknesses uncovered…This brilliant, beautifully observed comedy is a joy to watch throughout. The Second Mother's narrative works on so many levels, reflected in the film's ambiguous title, and the characterisation is flawless.”-Lucy Popescu, Cinevue

    "Muylaert gently probes at ideas of class…The director explores snobbery through humour…both laugh out loud funny and a metaphor for the ridiculousness of trying to maintain social order in a changing society.”-A Wilkeson, Eye For Film
