    A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT

    Directed by ANA LILY AMIRPOUR/USA/2014/99mins.

    With Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manish

     

     

    The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. (In Farsi with English subtitles).

    "Best of Cannes"

    (Jury Prize Winner)

    Miami Exclusive Premiere Engagement!

    The MBC debut of 3/D!

    Jean-Luc Godard’s

    GOODBYE TO LANGUAGE 3/D

    (ADIEU AU LANGAGE)

    Directed by Jean-Luc Godard/France/2014/70mins.

     

     

     

    Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival, Goodbye to Language 3D is a sensorially immersive experience employing 3D technology to mind-expanding effect. Starring Heloise Godet, Kamel Abdeli and Godard's own dog as Roxy, Jean-Luc Godard's latest film is a "thrilling cinematic experience" (Manohla Dargis, The New York Times) and a complete "masterpiece" (Amy Taubin, Film Comment).

     

    In the words of JLG…

    the idea is simple

    a married woman and a single man meet

    they love, they argue, fists fly

    a dog strays between town and country

    the seasons pass

    the man and woman meet again

    the dog finds itself between them

    the former husband shatters everything

    a second film begins

    the same as the first

    and not yet

    from the human race we pass to metaphor

    this ends in barking

    and a baby’s cries

     

     

     

     

     

    WINNER:

    Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize

    Official Selection:

    Cannes, Toronto, New York Film Festivals

    “FOR ME, AT CANNES 2014, THERE WAS JEAN-LUC GODARD’S ADIEU AU LANGAGE, AND THEN THERE WAS EVERYTHING ELSE…I think Godard would have been pleased with the cheer of “Godard forever” that rose from the packed Lumière Theater as the lights dimmed for the premiere of his first 3/D feature, but also by the spontaneous applause that erupted mid-movie, after a mindboggling, eyeball-dislocating, narratively profound sequence that involves the superimposition of two 3/D images that begin as one, go their separate ways, and reunite in the end…Having upended the rules in Breathless, Godard does it anew here..”-Amy Taubin, Film Comment

    (Turist)

    Directed by RUBEN ÖSTLUND/Sweden/2014.112mins.

    With Johannes Kuhnke, Lisa Loven Kongsli, Brady Corbet, Kristofer Hivju

     

     

    A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family--handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children--on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

    Directed by PAWEL PAWLIKOWSKI/Poland/2014/80mins.

    With Agata Trzebuchowska, Dawid Ogrodnik, Halina Skoczynska

     

     

    From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s

    Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. She is shocked with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism. (In Polish with English subtitles).

    The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp.

The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. (In Farsi with English subtitles).

    NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY

    (Norte, hangganen ng kasaysayan)

     

    Directed by LAV DIAZ/Phillipines/2013/250mins.

    With Sid Lucero, Angeli Bayani, Archie Alemania

     

     

     

    Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. (In Tagalog and English with English subtitles)

    OBVIOUS CHILD

    Directed by GILLIAN ROBESPIERRE/2014/83mins.

    With Jenny Slate, Jake Lacy, Gaby Hoffman

     

     

    For aspiring comedian Donna Stern, everyday life as a female twenty-something provides ample material for her incredibly relatable brand of humor. On stage, Donna is unapologetically herself, joking about topics as intimate as her sex life and as crude as her day-old underwear. But when Donna gets dumped, loses her job, and finds herself pregnant just in time for Valentine’s Day, she has to navigate the murky waters of independent adulthood for the first time. As she grapples with an uncertain financial future, an unwanted pregnancy, and a surprising new suitor, Donna begins to discover that the most terrifying thing about adulthood isn’t facing it all on her own. It’s allowing herself to accept the support and love of others. And be truly vulnerable. Never failing to find the comedy and humanity in each awkward situation she encounters, Donna finds out along the way what it means to be as brave in life as she is on stage.

    A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT

    Directed by ANA LILY AMIRPOUR/USA/2014/99mins.

    With Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manish

     

     

    The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. (In Farsi with English subtitles).

    LAND HO!

    Directed by AARON KATZ, MARTHA STEPHENS/2014/95mins.

    With Earl Lynn Nelson, Paul Eenhoorn, Daniel Gylfason


     

    Back when they were brothers-in-law, married to two sisters, MITCH (Earl Lynn Nelson) and COLIN (Paul Eenhoorn) were close friends, but they drifted apart as Mitch and his wife divorced and Colin's wife died. Now Mitch, a retired surgeon who can't quite admit to being retired, recruits a reluctant Colin on a holiday to Iceland, just the ticket to perk up a pair who have endured their share of disappointments but still have a spirit of adventure in them.

    Brassy, relentlessly cheery, and prone to colorfully profane language ("...this is so delicious it's like angels pissin' on your tongue!") Southerner Mitch is the live wire of the duo. Colin, a more reserved Australian, is picking up the pieces after a second marriage gone sour. For both men, aging, loneliness, and disenchantment are silent adversaries to be countered with gumption.

    They hit the nightclubs with Mitch's much younger first-cousin-once-removed ELLEN (Karrie Crouse) and her friend JANET (Elizabeth McKee), who happen to be traveling through at the same time. Even though Mitch, who is something of a Dapper Dan, disapproves of the unrevealing outfits worn by the ladies (Ph.D candidates both), a good time, of sorts, is had by all.

    Documentary directed by LAURA POITRAS/2014/114mins.

    With Edward Snowden

     

     

    CITIZENFOUR is a real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, giving audiences unprecedented access to filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). Poitras had already been working on a film about surveillance for two years when Snowden contacted her, using the name “CITIZENFOUR,” in January 2013.  He reached out to her because he knew she had long been a target of government surveillance, stopped at airports numerous times, and had refused to be intimidated. When Snowden revealed he was a high-level analyst driven to expose the massive surveillance of Americans by the NSA, Poitras persuaded him to let her film. CITIZENFOUR places you in the room with Poitras, Greenwald, and Snowden as they attempt to manage the media storm raging outside, forced to make quick decisions that will impact their lives and all of those around them. CITIZENFOUR not only shows you the dangers of governmental surveillanceundefinedit makes you feel them. After seeing the film, you will never think the same way about your phone, email, credit card, web browser, or profile, ever again.

    A critical favorite at this year's Cannes Film Festival, where it took the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard, this wickedly funny and precisely observed psychodrama tells the story of a model Swedish family--handsome businessman Tomas, his willowy wife Ebba and their two blond children--on a skiing holiday in the French Alps. The sun is shining and the slopes are spectacular but, during a lunch at a mountainside restaurant, an avalanche suddenly bears down on the happy diners. With people fleeing in all directions and his wife and children in a state of panic, Tomas makes a decision that will shake his marriage to its core and leave him struggling to reclaim his role as family patriarch.

    “CITIZENFOUR IS AN EXPERTLY CRAFTED EXPOSE WITH UNPRECEDENTED URGENCY.”-Matt Patches, HitFlix

    “Adapting the cold language of data encryption to recount a dramatic saga of abuse of power and justified paranoia, Poitras brilliantly demonstrates that information is a weapon that cuts both ways.”-Ronnie Scheib, Variety

     

    “A TRIUMPH OF JOURNALISM, AND A TRIUMPH FOR JOURNALISM”-Spenser Ackerman, The Guardian

     

    “Poitras, an expert filmmaker as keyed into pace and mood as the topic they support, delivers a mesmerizing look at both how Snowden managed to release his information as well as why it all matters.”-Eric Cohn, Indiewire

    A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT

    Directed by ANA LILY AMIRPOUR/USA/2014/99mins.

    With Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Marshall Manish

     

     

    The first Iranian Vampire Western ever made, Ana Lily Amirpour’s debut basks in the sheer pleasure of pulp. A joyful mash-up of genre, archetype, and iconography, its prolific influences span spaghetti westerns, graphic novels, horror films, and the Iranian New Wave. Strange things are afoot in Bad City. The Iranian ghost town, home to prostitutes, junkies, pimps, and other sordid souls, is a place that reeks of death and hopelessness, where a lonely vampire is stalking the towns' most unsavory inhabitants. But when boy meets girl, an unusual love story begins to blossom...blood red. (In Farsi with English subtitles).

    IDA

    Directed by PAWEL PAWLIKOWSKI/Poland/2014/80mins.

    With Agata Trzebuchowska, Dawid Ogrodnik, Halina Skoczynska

     

     

    From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s

    Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. She is shocked with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation. This revelation triggers a heart-wrenching journey into the countryside, to the family house and into the secrets of the repressed past, evoking the haunting legacy of the Holocaust and the realities of postwar Communism. (In Polish with English subtitles).

    20,000 DAYS ON EARTH

    Directed by IAIAN FORSYTH and JANE POLLARD/2014/97mins.

    With Nick Cave, Susie Bick, Warren Ellis

     

     

    20,000 Days On Earth is an inventive, lyrical ode to creativity and an intimate examination of the artistic process of musician and cultural icon

    Nick Cave . In their debut feature directors Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard fuse drama and documentary, weaving a staged day in Cave’s life with never-before-seen verité observation of his creative cycle. It features those who have affected his life, including wry tales from the road shared with his regular collaborator, the multi-instrumentalist Warren Ellis; actor and friend Ray Winstone; and Kylie Minogue, who shared a duet with Cave in the breakout hit "Where the Wild Roses Grow." These voices from the past revisit Cave in daydream-like scenes as he sits behind the wheel driving through his adopted hometown of Brighton, England

    Neither a music documentary nor a concert film, 20,000 Days On Earth still contains electrifying performances. Audiences see a song grow from the tiniest of ideas to an epic performance at Sydney Opera House. Cave also opens up to a psychoanalyst as he discusses how his early years continue to inform his work, and journeys through his memories via mementos from his personal archive. This category-defying film pushes the form into new territory, exploring universal themes about artistry, and celebrating the transformative power of the creative spirit.

    WINNER: Sundance Film Festival Best Direction, Best Editing

     

    Independent Spirit Awards Nominee Best Documentary

     

    Visual artists Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard met while studying at Goldsmiths

    Collegein London in the mid-nineties. They have worked together ever since. 20,000 Days on Earth is their first feature film.

    Music plays a significant role in their work, which includes many notable collaborations, such as a sound installation with Scott Walker at Sydney Opera House, experiments with subliminal sound with Jason Pierce (Spiritualized), a film with Gil Scott-Heron and a video installation featuring the first ever on-screen appearance of Ben Drew, aka musician Plan B.

    They pioneered the use of re-enactment in contemporary art and became known for their critically acclaimed recreations of highly-charged cultural moments, such as their A Rock ‘N’ Roll Suicide, a painstakingly faithful live re-creation of David Bowie’s final performance as Ziggy Stardust exactly 25 years later.

    Their work is collected by museums and institutions worldwide, including the Tate Gallery, and they have been shortlisted for the 2014 Jarman Award. More info: Visit Iain and Jane's website www.iainandjane.com

    WINTER SLEEP

    (Kis uykusu)

    Directed by NURI BILGE CEYLAN/Turkey/2014/196mins.

    With Haluk Bilginer, Melisa Sözen, Demet Akbag

     

     

    From Turkist auteur director Nuri Bilge Ceylan (Once Upon a Time in Anatolia, Climates, Three Monkeys) comes his latest masterful film inspired by a variety of classic literary sources. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival Palme d’Or, the film is a massive accomplishment and an essential experience for cinephiles. Aydin, a former actor (Haluk Bilginer), runs a small hotel in central Anatolia with his young wife Nihal (Melisa Sözen) with whom he has a stormy relationship and his sister Necla who is suffering from her recent divorce. In winter as the snow begins to fall, the hotel turns into a shelter but also an inescapable place that fuels their animosities...

    NATIONAL GALLERY

    Documentary by FREDERICK WISEMAN/2014/181mins.

     

     

    Frederick Wiseman’s NATIONAL GALLERY takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. NATIONAL GALLERY is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    Cannes Film Festival, New York Film Festival

    “ONE OF THE GREATEST I’VE SEEN ALL YEAR…Among this movie’s many attractions is the extraordinary geometry of looks that Mr. Wiseman traces as he draws lines among the people in the paintings, the people looking at the paintings and, of course, you, the movie viewer."-Manohla Dargis, New York Times

    With more than 700 early-stage startups, and as many as 5,000 overall, it is no surprise that Tel-Aviv has been ranked second only to Silicon Valley as a leading tech community.

    , we follow 4 Israeli startup teams for 2 years as they sacrifice their families, their friends, and their bank accounts to pursue their startup dreams.

    LI’L QUINQUIN

    (P’tit Quinquin)

    Directed by BRUNO DUMONT/2014/France/197mins.

    With Bernard Pruvost, Alane Delhaye, Lucy Caron, Phillippe Jore

     

     

    French auteur Bruno Dumont, best known for uncompromising and austere dramas, proves with the comedy Li'l Quinquin that he is capable of shifting gears without conceding his signature style. This absurdist, metaphysical murder mystery opens with the discovery of human body parts stuffed inside a cow - a literal bete humaine- on the outskirts of the English Channel in northern France. The bumbling and mumbling Captain Van der Weyden (played by Bernard Pruvost) is assigned to investigate the crime, but he has to contend with a young prankster, the mischievous Quinquin (Alane Delhaye), as he proceeds to investigate the case. Dubbed an "epic farce" by the New York Film Festival, Li'l Quinquin has been compared to Twin Peaks and True Detective, But simply speaking, Li'l Quinquin is "a wonderfully weird and unexpectedly hilarious" (Scott Foundas, Variety) masterwork from one of the most important contemporary French directors.

    “Comedy is the road for irony and it’s also the road for hope. Even if we know that 'Li’l Quinquin' is only a small beast growing up to be a big one, there is some irony in knowing this. We also know that there is the possibility that he could become a good man. And he is a good lover. Really, irony is my optimism."-Bruno Dumont

    NATIONAL GALLERY

    Documentary by FREDERICK WISEMAN/2014/181mins.

     

     

    Frederick Wiseman’s NATIONAL GALLERY takes the audience behind the scenes of a London institution, on a journey to the heart of a museum inhabited by masterpieces of Western art from the Middle Ages to the 19th Century. NATIONAL GALLERY is the portrait of a place, its way of working and relations with the world, its staff and public, and its paintings. In a perpetual and dizzying game of mirrors, film watches painting watches film.

    Miami Jewish Film Festival

    TUE, JAN 27, 7p:

    AN EVENING WITH BILL MORRISON AND MICHAEL GORDON

    Filmmaker Bill Morrison has over the last 20 years created a singular body of work that defies classification. Drawing on the traditions of avant-garde film, installation, theater and musical performance, Morrison’s films create immersive visual and sonic landscapes that reflect on the symbiosis of creation and destruction. His medium is archival film footage, much of it in a state of voluptuous deterioration, which he transforms through deliberate editing into exquisite meditations on collective mythologies and forgotten narratives, both real and imagined. Morrison’s works are often the result of collaborations with musicians and composers. A Miami native, composer Michael Gordon has collaborated with Bill Morrison on 10 films, providing an inimitable score to his meditative films. Throughout the course of their partnership, Bill Morrison & Michael Gordon have created a unique body of work that brings to light the resonances of film’s physical properties as well as the expressive power of music to transform images.

    Bill Morrison will discuss and present select films from his collaborations with composer Michael Gordon, including:

    City Walk (1999, 6 min)
    An abstract, high-contrast tour across Manhattan’s streets and across bridges.

    Light Is Calling (2004, 8 min)
    A meditation on the nature of random collisions, as seen through the roiling emulsion of an ancient film.

    East River (2006, 7 min)
    A brief glimpse of Manhattan's skin.

    Who By Water (2007, 18 min)
    Inspired by a prayer from the Rosh Hashanah liturgy, the service marking the Jewish New Year. Ship passengers are depicted staring wordlessly into the camera’s lens. All of their numbers have by now been called. And in staring back at them, we contemplate our own fate.

    Every Stop on the F Train (2008, 5 min)
    A rundown of the station names of the New York subway line as it traverse three boroughs.

    Gene Takes a Drink (2012, 7 min)
    A P.O.V. etude created by putting the camera on the collar of a cat and then turning it loose in a garden.

    All Vows (2013, 10 min) Florida Premiere
    Its title is a translation of "Kol Nidre," a Yom Kippur incantation that nullifies future vows made unintentionally. Morrison said the work highlights "the fragile and corporeal nature" of ancient film stock and "depicts an unknowable future as reflected through a dissolving historical document." Michael Gordon's haunting musical score, performed on cello by Maya Beiser, further heightens the film's emotional impact.

    Documentary by Marcy Cravat/2014/1hr, 14mins.

     

     

    Through the hauntingly beautiful lure of Jason deCaire's Taylor's underwater, life-like statues we witness the birth of an artificial coral reef, learn how we are inextricably connected to the ocean and everything in it, and are left to consider how are choices will determine what we leave to future generations. Angel Azul explores the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist who combines creativity with an important environmental solution; the creation of artificial coral reefs from statues he's cast from live models. When algae overtakes the reefs however, experts provide the facts about the perilous situation coral reefs currently face and solutions necessary to save them. Peter Coyote generously provides insightful narration that leaves viewers pondering our connection to this valuable and beautiful ecosystem.
