    THE CAT FROM HAVANA (O GATO DE HAVANA)

    Director: Dacio Malta

    Documentary, 88’, 2016, Brazil/Cuba


    Gato Tuerto is Cuba's most iconic cabaret. Since it first opened its doors 55 years ago, it remains a refuge for Havana's cultured bohemian circles. In its small stage, some of the country's most important musicians, such as Omara Portuondo, Elena Burke, Pablo Milanés, César Portillo de la Luz and Chucho Valdés, have performed. It also served as a scenario for the world's longest bolero session, as recorded on the Guiness Book of Records. The documentary tells the story of cabaret; its inception, creators, artists and famous patrons, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Julio Cortázar.

    Documentary by Eryk Rocha/Brazil/2017/90mins.


    Winner of the Best Documentary Award at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, this intricately edited film combines film clips from the major works of the Brazilian Cinema Novo movement and period interviews with its leading filmmakers.

Auteur filmmakers including Nelson Pereira dos Santos, Carlos Diegues, Ruy Guerra, Leon Hirszman, Walter Lima Jr., Joaquim Pedro de Andrade, Paulo César Saraceni, Jorge Bodanzky and Orlando Senna, and Glauber Rocha (father of Cinema Novo director Eryk, as well as of singer Ava Rocha, whose music is featured in the film). The filmmakers pushed boundaries with aesthetically bold films that used non-professional actors and low-budget production techniques to confront social inequality. Films including Black God, White Devil; Ganga Zumba; Barren Lives; and Iracema.

    Cinema Novo is a film manifesto about the relevance today of almost forgotten Brazilian film movement of the sixties cinema novo. It is a daring impressionistic essay of a new genre showing us that cinema today could be at once political and sensual, poetical and engaged, formal and narrative, fictional and non-fictional - an interpretation of a mundo novo - of a new world.”-Golden Eye Jury

    DAWSON CITY: FROZEN TIME

    Documentary by Bill Morrison/2017/2hrs.


    This meditation on cinema’s past from Decasia director Bill Morrison pieces together the bizarre true history of a long-lost collection of 533 nitrate film prints from the early 1900s. Located just south of the Arctic Circle, Dawson City was settled in 1896 and became the center of the Canadian Gold Rush that brought 100,000 prospectors to the area. It was also the final stop for a distribution chain that sent prints and newsreels to the Yukon. The films were seldom, if ever, returned. The now-famous Dawson City Collection was uncovered in 1978 when a bulldozer working its way through a parking lot dug up a horde of film cans. Morrison draws on these permafrost-protected, rare silent films and newsreels, pairing them with archival footage, interviews, historical photographs, and an enigmatic score by Sigur Rós collaborator and composer Alex Somers. Dawson City: Frozen Time depicts the unique history of this Canadian Gold Rush town by chronicling the life cycle of a singular film collection through its exile, burial, rediscovery, and salvation.

    "Critic's Pick! An instantaneously recognizable masterpiece."– Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

    "Wondrous, almost indescribable. A complete astonishment from beginning to end."-Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

    "Critic's Pick! An orgy for film geeks and history jonesers."–Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

    "Bill Morrison's Dawson City: Frozen Time is the best new movie in town and the best movie of the year thus far."y Pipolo, Artforum

    "A bona fide adventure through history, hopscotching across the turn of the 19th century."–Nicolas Rapold, Film Comment

    "Astonishing. A testament to the potential of art to weather and endure the ravages of time."–Kenji Fujishima, Paste Magazine

    "Morrison’s movies feel like half-remembered reveries formed from memories you can no longer consciously recall. Hovering at the intersection of reappropriation, preservation, history, music, and art, any one of his works will haunt you for the rest of your life. Dawson City: Frozen Time is no exception."–Dan Schindel, Hyperallergic

    "Four stars! A ghost story like you’ve never seen. Riveting, thoughtful and very emotional."–Jordan Hoffman, AM New York

    THE TRIP TO SPAIN

    A deliciously deadpan culinary road trip!

    Directed by MICHAEL WINTERBOTTOM/UK/2017/111mins.

    With Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon


    After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: Tribeca Film Festival

    “DIRECTOR WINTERBOTTOM HASN’T JUST DELIVERED THE FUNNIEST MOVIE OF THE YEAR, but also a comedy that casts its characters in a harsh new light”-David Ehrlich, IndieWire

    “Brydon and Coogan’s effortless chemistry, paired with the simple joys of good food and world-class sightseeing, make these films a supremely pleasant vacation unto themselves. Someone get these men on the next ferry to Japan.”-Charles Bramesco, The Playlist

    TITICUT FOLLIES

    Directed by FREDERICK WISEMAN/1967/1hr, 24mins.


    This legendary film is a stark and graphic portrayal of the conditions that existed at the State Prison for the Criminally Insane at Bridgewater, Massachusetts. TITICUT FOLLIES documents the various ways the inmates are treated by the guards, social workers and psychiatrists. The only American film banned from release for reasons other than obscenity or national security, it is now considered to be among the best documentary films of all time.

    “TITICUT FOLLIES is a documentary film that tells you more than you could possibly want to know — but no more than you should know — about life behind the walls of one of those institutions where we file and forget the criminal insane… A society’s treatment of the least of its citizens — and surely these are the least of ours — is perhaps the best measure of its civilization.”–Richard Schickel, Life

    “TITICUT FOLLIES IS A GREAT WORK, A NEAR-MASTERPIECE NOT JUST IN DOCUMENTARY FORM, BUT OF MOVIEMAKING IN ANY CATEGORY. It’s a film that transcends the time and place of its manufacture, and it should be seen not just by documentarians and film students but by anyone interested in the movies as a medium capable of powerfully presenting the human condition.”–Ray Greene, Village View

    THE UNKNOWN GIRL

    Directed by JEAN-PIERRE & LUC DARDENNE/BELGIUM/2017/1hr, 57mins.

    With Adèle Haenel, Olivier Bonnaud, Jérémie Renier


    The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale.

    ★★★★ THE DARDENNE BROTHERS DELIVER A PERCEPTIVE PORTRAIT OF PROFESSIONAL INTEGRITY UNDER PRESSURE…With fluid elegance, the Dardennes’ handheld sequence shots balance narrative tension with insight into a flawed character. Jenny is kind and capable, but also a workaholic incapable of accepting anything other than perfection…once the cast’s biggest Euro-star arrives, the odds are slashed on Jenny solving the crime. Yet Haenel justifies her buzz with a tough/tender performance that keeps the Dardennes’ remarkable run of social-realist fables on track.”-Simon Kinnear, Total Film

    “In today’s uncertain cinematic world, there’s one thing you can always rely on: the Liège standard for committed indie drama set by the brothers Dardenne. Their tenth dramatic feature dials back from the broader social canvas of Two Days, One Night to focus on a young doctor’s crisis of conscience following the death of a young woman, but if the intimate frame and dour, matter-of-fact aesthetic suggest a return to the raw territory of La Promesse or The Son, what is new here is a flirtation with genre that lends an extra dose of resonance to a finely-scripted story. For The Unknown Girl is a detective tale – and also, we gradually come to realize, the story of a haunting.”-Lee Marshall, Screen International

    THE UNKNOWN GIRL

    Directed by JEAN-PIERRE & LUC DARDENNE/BELGIUM/2017/1hr, 57mins.

    With Adèle Haenel, Olivier Bonnaud, Jérémie Renier


    The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale. (In French with English subtitles.)

    THE UNKNOWN GIRL

    Directed by JEAN-PIERRE & LUC DARDENNE/BELGIUM/2017/1hr, 57mins.

    With Adèle Haenel, Olivier Bonnaud, Jérémie Renier


    The new film from acclaimed directors the Dardenne brothers (Two Days, One Night) is a searing saga of guilt and redemption. One evening after work hours, Jenny (Adèle Haenel), a young doctor, allows the door buzzer at the small clinic where she works to go unanswered. It’s only later that she learns that the person ringing was an unidentified African woman found dead shortly after by the side of a road. Consumed by the thought that she is to blame, Jenny embarks on an obsessive crusade to discover who the anonymous woman was and to see to it that she is not forgotten. Shot through with low-key suspense and the heart-stopping realism that has become the directors’ trademark, The Unknown Girl is both a gripping mystery and a profoundly human moral tale. (In French with English subtitles.)

    OFFICIAL SELECTION: CANNES FILM FESTIVAL

    ★★★★ THE DARDENNE BROTHERS DELIVER A PERCEPTIVE PORTRAIT OF PROFESSIONAL INTEGRITY UNDER PRESSURE…With fluid elegance, the Dardennes’ handheld sequence shots balance narrative tension with insight into a flawed character. Jenny is kind and capable, but also a workaholic incapable of accepting anything other than perfection…once the cast’s biggest Euro-star arrives, the odds are slashed on Jenny solving the crime. Yet Haenel justifies her buzz with a tough/tender performance that keeps the Dardennes’ remarkable run of social-realist fables on track.”-Simon Kinnear, Total Film

    “In today’s uncertain cinematic world, there’s one thing you can always rely on: the Liège standard for committed indie drama set by the brothers Dardenne. Their tenth dramatic feature dials back from the broader social canvas of Two Days, One Night to focus on a young doctor’s crisis of conscience following the death of a young woman, but if the intimate frame and dour, matter-of-fact aesthetic suggest a return to the raw territory of La Promesse or The Son, what is new here is a flirtation with genre that lends an extra dose of resonance to a finely-scripted story. For The Unknown Girl is a detective tale – and also, we gradually come to realize, the story of a haunting.”-Lee Marshall, Screen International
