    WHITE GOD

    (Fehér isten)

    Directed by KORNÉL MUNDRUSCÓ/Hungary/2014/119mins.

    With Zsófia Psotto, Sándor Zsótér, Lili Horwáth,

    Luke, Brody, and 250 star canines

    A cautionary tale between a superior species and its disgraced inferior... Favoring pedigree dogs, a new regulation puts a severe tax on mixed breeds. Owners dump their dogs and shelters become overcrowded. 13-year-old Lili fights desperately to protect her pet Hagen, but her father eventually sets the dog free on the streets. Hagen and his pretty master search desperately for each other until Lili loses faith. Struggling to survive, homeless Hagen realizes that not everyone is a dog's best friend. 

    Hagen joins a gang of stray dogs, but is soon captured and sent to the pound. With little hope inside there, the dogs will seize an opportunity to escape and revolt against mankind. Their revenge will be merciless. Lili may be the only one who can halt this unexpected war between man and dog.

    “METACRITIC SCORE 100!

Special mention, meanwhile, must be made of the extraordinary contribution of head animal trainer Teresa Ann Miller, who has extracted a range of individual personalities and character responses from the film’s formidably choreographed canine ensemble.

    “FLA-FRA”

    The Films of Jean Cocteau

    Presented with Tigertail

    and supported by the French Embassy

     

     TESTAMENT d’ORPHEE

    Directed by JEAN COCTEAU/1959/France/80mins.

    With Jean Cocteau, Edouard Dermithe, Maria Casares,

    Jean Marais, Charles Aznavour, Yul Brynner, Pablo Picasso

     

     

    In his last film, legendary writer/artist/filmmaker Jean Cocteau portrays an 18th-century poet who travels through time on a quest for divine wisdom. In a mysterious wasteland, he meets several symbolic phantoms that bring about his death and resurrection. With an eclectic cast that includes Pablo Picasso, Jean-Pierre Leáud, Jean Marais and Yul Brynner, Testament of Orpheus (Le Testament de Orphée) brings full circle the journey Cocteau began in The Blood of a Poet, an exploration of the torturous relationship between the artist and his creations.

    (In French with English subtitles).

     

    The film will be preceded by a “Culture Click”

    By BARRON SHERER

    Barron presents Cocteau Motif, a new video essay with live elements. The five-minute short explores how Jean Cocteau’s cinema constructions emphasize an identifiable visual poetry and authorship through use of motifs, a unique synthesis of history, previous works and non-cinema disciplines.

    MY LIFE DIRECTED BY

    NICOLAS WINDING REFN

    Documentary directed by LIV CORFIXEN/2014/58mins.

    With Liv Corfixen, Nicolas Winding Refn, Ryan Gosling,

    Alejandro Jodorowsky, Kristen Scott Thomas

     

    In the tradition of HEARTS OF DARKNESS, director Liv Corfixen reveals an impossibly personal portrait of her husband, auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, as he struggles to complete the controversial and polarizing ONLY GOD FORGIVES.

    “Honesty is hard to come by in the movie industry. With millions of dollars at stake, safe repetition is often the easiest, well-treaded path. My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, a 58-minute documentary about the making of Only God Forgives, challenges the norm and reveals a working director’s latest film and his struggle to figure out how to bring it to life. The film was shot by director Nicolas Winding Refn’s wife, Liv Corfixen, and it gives us intimate, day-by-day access to their life together during the six-month trip to Thailand with their two children and the way Refn tries to blend being an artist and having a family. Challenging and engaging, it’s a documentary that is perhaps more interesting and deep than the film it is about.”-Bill Graham, The Film Stage

    “There is no "fourth wall" in modern documentaries -- reality shows have broken our collective spirit, and we know that cameras are everywhere -- yet Jodorowsky's forthright inquiry sets the tone for the movie as a whole: it's awkward, unplanned, and thoroughly intriguing. Starting off as a home movie of sorts, Corfixen intended to document her family's experience in Thailand during the filming of Only God Forgives, featuring her husband Jang, as he's known to friends, and their children. That idea quickly morphed into a behind-the-scenes production documentary, which then morphed into something quite a bit more personal, based on Corfixen's belief that it would be more interesting to tell a more complex story.”-Peter Martin, Twitch Film

    LOST RIVER

    Directed by RYAN GOSLING/2015/104mins.

    With Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes,

    Matt Smith, Barbara Steele

    Cinematography by Benoît Debie, Score by Johnny Jewel

     

     

    Lost River weaves elements of fantasy noir and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery if their family is to survive.       

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    Cannes and SXSW Film Festivals

    “WHEN A HOLLYWOOD A-LISTER’S FIRST FILM REACHES FOR THE STARS BUT LANDS ON THE MOON, IT’S…WORTH BEING GRATEFUL. Ryan Gosling wanted to make an art film and…pretty much succeeded. There’s more to him than “look at my muscles.”-Jonathan Hoffman, Film.com

    “Having sat at the feet of some brilliant directors, Gosling is unabashed at making their influence felt. Benoît Debie's (Spring Breakers, Irreversible) cinematography provides us with some Terrence Malick-inspired magic hours, Nicolas Winding Refn-shaded neon colour schemes and over it booms an industrial score by Johnny Jewel. However, the influence most obvious here is that of David Lynch, filtered through the art of Edward Hopper…His actors give larger-than-life performances…Perhaps on account of its superstar director, Lost River has received a fairly rough ride from critics, but THIS IS THE KIND OF ODDBALL MIDNIGHT MOVIE THAT COULD EASILY GAIN A CULT FOLLOWING AND THERE ARE DELIGHTS TO BE HAD IN THE MIDST.”

    -CineVue

     

    “Every once in a while, prominent actors of the crazy stripe entice producers to back a weirdo project. In 1971 Dennis Hopper, fresh off Easy Rider, made a nutsy-greatsy modern western called The Last Movie. Johnny Depp, in 1977, came to Cannes with The Brave, a good-looking antimasterpiece about an American Indian who agrees to die in a snuff film for the pleasure of Marlon Brando. The movies were insane but never boring…Gosling’s movie is in that funhouse ballpark. SOMETIMES IT’S A TONIC FOR AN ACTOR TO GET A CRAZY MOVIE IDEA OUT OF HIS SYSTEM, AND MAYBE INTO OUR’S.”-Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

    MY LIFE DIRECTED BY

    NICOLAS WINDING REFN

    Documentary directed by LIV CORFIXEN/2014/58mins.

    With Liv Corfixen, Nicolas Winding Refn, Ryan Gosling,

    Alejandro Jodorowsky, Kristen Scott Thomas

     

    In the tradition of HEARTS OF DARKNESS, director Liv Corfixen reveals an impossibly personal portrait of her husband, auteur Nicolas Winding Refn, as he struggles to complete the controversial and polarizing ONLY GOD FORGIVES.

    “Honesty is hard to come by in the movie industry. With millions of dollars at stake, safe repetition is often the easiest, well-treaded path. My Life Directed By Nicolas Winding Refn, a 58-minute documentary about the making of Only God Forgives, challenges the norm and reveals a working director’s latest film and his struggle to figure out how to bring it to life. The film was shot by director Nicolas Winding Refn’s wife, Liv Corfixen, and it gives us intimate, day-by-day access to their life together during the six-month trip to Thailand with their two children and the way Refn tries to blend being an artist and having a family. Challenging and engaging, it’s a documentary that is perhaps more interesting and deep than the film it is about.”-Bill Graham, The Film Stage

    “There is no "fourth wall" in modern documentaries -- reality shows have broken our collective spirit, and we know that cameras are everywhere -- yet Jodorowsky's forthright inquiry sets the tone for the movie as a whole: it's awkward, unplanned, and thoroughly intriguing. Starting off as a home movie of sorts, Corfixen intended to document her family's experience in Thailand during the filming of Only God Forgives, featuring her husband Jang, as he's known to friends, and their children. That idea quickly morphed into a behind-the-scenes production documentary, which then morphed into something quite a bit more personal, based on Corfixen's belief that it would be more interesting to tell a more complex story.”-Peter Martin, Twitch Film

    LOST RIVER

    Directed by RYAN GOSLING/2015/104mins.

    With Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes,

    Matt Smith, Barbara Steele

    Cinematography by Benoît Debie, Score by Johnny Jewel

     

     

    Lost River weaves elements of fantasy noir and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery if their family is to survive.

    “WHEN A HOLLYWOOD A-LISTER’S FIRST FILM REACHES FOR THE STARS BUT LANDS ON THE MOON, IT’S…WORTH BEING GRATEFUL. Ryan Gosling wanted to make an art film and…pretty much succeeded. There’s more to him than “look at my muscles.”-Jonathan Hoffman, Film.com

    “Having sat at the feet of some brilliant directors, Gosling is unabashed at making their influence felt. Benoît Debie's (Spring Breakers, Irreversible) cinematography provides us with some Terrence Malick-inspired magic hours, Nicolas Winding Refn-shaded neon colour schemes and over it booms an industrial score by Johnny Jewel. However, the influence most obvious here is that of David Lynch, filtered through the art of Edward Hopper…His actors give larger-than-life performances…Perhaps on account of its superstar director, Lost River has received a fairly rough ride from critics, but THIS IS THE KIND OF ODDBALL MIDNIGHT MOVIE THAT COULD EASILY GAIN A CULT FOLLOWING AND THERE ARE DELIGHTS TO BE HAD IN THE MIDST.”

    -CineVue

     

    “Every once in a while, prominent actors of the crazy stripe entice producers to back a weirdo project. In 1971 Dennis Hopper, fresh off Easy Rider, made a nutsy-greatsy modern western called The Last Movie. Johnny Depp, in 1977, came to Cannes with The Brave, a good-looking antimasterpiece about an American Indian who agrees to die in a snuff film for the pleasure of Marlon Brando. The movies were insane but never boring…Gosling’s movie is in that funhouse ballpark. SOMETIMES IT’S A TONIC FOR AN ACTOR TO GET A CRAZY MOVIE IDEA OUT OF HIS SYSTEM, AND MAYBE INTO OUR’S.”-Richard Corliss, Time Magazine

    IRIS

    Documentary directed by ALBERT MAYSLES/2014/83mins.

    Featuring Iris Apfel and Company

     

     

    IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middles-class Queens up bringing during the Great Depression. "I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."    

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    New York and Miami Film Festivals   

    “MUST SEE…FABULOUSLY ENTERTAINING!”-Paper Magazine

    “Frankly it's hard not to like someone as engaging as Iris who comes out with such plums as 'my mother worshipped at the altar of the accessory.'  By the end of the movie you may not want to actually worship at the altar of Apfel, but you will be very sorely tempted.”-Roger Walker-Dack

IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middles-class Queens up bringing during the Great Depression.

    Directed by RYAN GOSLING/2015/104mins.

    With Saoirse Ronan, Christina Hendricks, Eva Mendes,

    Matt Smith, Barbara Steele

    Cinematography by Benoît Debie, Score by Johnny Jewel

     

     

    Lost River weaves elements of fantasy noir and suspense into a modern day fairytale. Set against the surreal dreamscape of a vanishing city, Billy, a single mother of two, is swept into a macabre and dark fantasy underworld while her teenage son discovers a secret road leading to an underwater town. Both Billy and Bones must dive deep into the mystery if their family is to survive.

    “WHEN A HOLLYWOOD A-LISTER’S FIRST FILM REACHES FOR THE STARS BUT LANDS ON THE MOON, IT’S…WORTH BEING GRATEFUL. Ryan Gosling wanted to make an art film and…pretty much succeeded. There’s more to him than “look at my muscles.”-Jonathan Hoffman, Film.com

    “Having sat at the feet of some brilliant directors, Gosling is unabashed at making their influence felt. Benoît Debie's (Spring Breakers, Irreversible) cinematography provides us with some Terrence Malick-inspired magic hours, Nicolas Winding Refn-shaded neon colour schemes and over it booms an industrial score by Johnny Jewel. However, the influence most obvious here is that of David Lynch, filtered through the art of Edward Hopper…His actors give larger-than-life performances…Perhaps on account of its superstar director, Lost River has received a fairly rough ride from critics, but THIS IS THE KIND OF ODDBALL MIDNIGHT MOVIE THAT COULD EASILY GAIN A CULT FOLLOWING AND THERE ARE DELIGHTS TO BE HAD IN THE MIDST.”

    GREY GARDENS

    Directed by DAVID & ALBERT MAYSLES,

    ELLEN HOVDE and MUFFIE MEYER/1976/94mins.

    Featuring Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and Edie Beale

    Grey Gardens is the unbelievable but true story of Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Mother and daughter live in a world of their own behind the towering privets that surround their decaying 28-room East Hampton mansion known as "Grey Gardens," a place so far gone that the local authorities once threatened to evict them for violating building and sanitation codes. The incident made national headlines -- American royalty, living in squalor! For the Beales were nothing short of the upper crust. Mrs. Beale, a.k.a. "Big Edie," was a born aristocrat, sister of "Black Jack" Bouvier, Jackie O's father. "Little Edie" was an aspiring actress of striking beauty who put her New York life on hold to care for her mother - and never left her side again. Together they descended into a strange life of dependence and eccentricity that no one had ever shared until the Maysles arrived with their camera and tape recorder.

    WINNER: Cinema Eye Honors and Legacy Awards

    GREY GARDENS

    Directed by DAVID & ALBERT MAYSLES,

    ELLEN HOVDE and MUFFIE MEYER/1976/94mins.

    Featuring Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and Edie Beale

    Grey Gardens is the unbelievable but true story of Mrs. Edith Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edie, the aunt and first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. Mother and daughter live in a world of their own behind the towering privets that surround their decaying 28-room East Hampton mansion known as "Grey Gardens," a place so far gone that the local authorities once threatened to evict them for violating building and sanitation codes. The incident made national headlines -- American royalty, living in squalor! For the Beales were nothing short of the upper crust. Mrs. Beale, a.k.a. "Big Edie," was a born aristocrat, sister of "Black Jack" Bouvier, Jackie O's father. "Little Edie" was an aspiring actress of striking beauty who put her New York life on hold to care for her mother - and never left her side again. Together they descended into a strange life of dependence and eccentricity that no one had ever shared until the Maysles arrived with their camera and tape recorder.

    WINNER: Cinema Eye Honors and Legacy Awards

    “To my mother and me, Grey Gardens is a breakthrough to something beautiful and precious called life."-Edie Beale, 1974

    IRIS

    Documentary directed by ALBERT MAYSLES/2014/83mins.

    Featuring Iris Apfel and Company

     

     

    IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. IRIS portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are life's sustenance and reminds us that dressing, and indeed life, is nothing but an experiment. Despite the abundance of glamour in her current life, she continues to embrace the values and work ethic established during a middles-class Queens up bringing during the Great Depression. "I feel lucky to be working. If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."

    “MUST SEE…FABULOUSLY ENTERTAINING!”-Paper Magazine

    “Frankly it's hard not to like someone as engaging as Iris who comes out with such plums as 'my mother worshipped at the altar of the accessory.'  By the end of the movie you may not want to actually worship at the altar of Apfel, but you will be very sorely tempted.”-Roger Walker-Dack

    Directed by DAVID & ALBERT MAYSLES

    and CHARLOTTE ZWERIN/1970/90mins.

    Featuring the Rolling Stones & Company

    December 6, 1969: the day the Sixties died.

    The landmark documentary about the tragically ill-fated Rolling Stones free concert at Altamont Speedway on December 6, 1969. Only four months earlier, Woodstock defined the Love Generation; now it lay in ruins on a desolate racetrack six miles outside of San Francisco. Before an estimated crowd of 300,000 people, the Stones headlined a free concert featuring Tina Turner, Jefferson Airplane, The Flying Burrito Brothers and others. Concerned about security, members of outlaw biker gang The Hell's Angels were asked to help maintain order. Instead, an atmosphere of fear and dread arose, leading ultimately to the stabbing death of a fan. What began as a flower-power love-in had degenerated into a near riot; frightened, confused faces wondering how the Love Generation could, in one swift, cold-blooded slash, became a generation of disillusionment and disappointment.

     ISLANDS      

    Directed by ALBERT & DAVID MAYSLES

    & CHARLOTTE ZWERIN/1986/57mins.

    Featuring Christo and Jeanne-Claude

    For two brief weeks in May of 1983, Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Surrounded Islands blossomed on the waters of Biscayne Bay, Florida. Eleven scrub-pine islands were surrounded by 6.5 million square feet of bright pink fabric. A three-year struggle, a work of art; a political drama interwoven with two other projects-in-progress; the wrapping of the Pont Neuf in Paris and the Reichstag in Berlin. This film goes beyond art. In each one of their projects, Christo and Jeanne-Claude fuse country, culture, and economics. Instead of museums, their mammoth 'sculptures' need space...and people. Their works are collective efforts, designed to evolve with community input. From raucous public debates with Miami officials to a private tour of Christo's studio with politico Willy Brandt; from intimate discussions with Jacques Chirac, the Mayor of Paris, to frantic boat rides between islands during the final unfurling. The artists are at work, probing, politicking, debating the meaning of art-- creating the social impact that gives each project its strength.

Not far fram Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya, and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in

    Timbuktu . But their destiny changes when Kidane accidentally kills Amadou, the fisherman who slaughtered “GPS,” his beloved cow. He now has to face the new laws of the foreign occupants. Timbuktuis Mauritania 's first entry for the Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award. (In French, Arabic, Bombara, with English subtitles).

    CLOUDS OF SILS MARIA

    Directed by OLIVIER ASSAYAS/France/2014/124mins.

    With Juliette Binoche and Kristen Stewart

    At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena. She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a penchant for scandal (Chloë Grace Moretz) is to take on the role of Sigrid, and Maria finds herself on the other side of the mirror, face to face with an ambiguously charming woman who is, in essence, an unsettling reflection of herself.
