“Merchants of Doubt” documentary screening
Thu, 13 Aug 2015 00:00:00 +0000
By the creator of "Food, Inc.", an important new documentary on climate change and its deniers' political agenda to discredit the inarguable facts.
Created and directed by Academy Award nominee and creator of the film, “Food, Inc,” Robert Kenner, the film Merchants of Doubt is a look at how the “climate change denier” industry has found such success.
The documentary, based on the book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway, is an inside look at how public opinion is formed in this country, how spin doctors and media manipulators get people to ignore science at their own peril.
In his film, Kenner posits that it all goes back to the tobacco industry and the battle over the hazards of cigarettes to health. As the corporate-backed pseudo scientists and PR reps working for the tobacco industry once argued that, “No one knows for sure if tobacco causes cancer” now these same tatcics are used to discredit scientific studies on human caused climate change.
The film was an official selection at the Toronto, New York, and Telluride film festival. Its important message, told in an entertaining and captivating style, will spark audiences to take action and continue this vital conversation.
“Provocative and improbably entertaining.” -JOE MORGENSTERN WALL STREET JOURNAL
“An enthralling film. As fascinating as it is horrifying.” – KENNETH TURAN LOS ANGELES TIMES
“Fascinating and troubling.” – A.O. SCOTT NEW YORK TIMES

A Pigeon Sat on a Branch Reflecting on Existence
Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:45:00 +0000
Like his previous features SONGS FROM THE SECOND FLOOR and YOU, THE LIVING, master Swedish director Roy Andersson takes up the theme of "being a human being" with this meticulously crafted, dreamlike black comedy. Sam and Jonathan, a pair of hapless novelty salesman, take us on a kaleidoscopic tour of the human condition in reality and fantasy, unfolding in absurdist episodes: a sing-along at a 1940s beer hall, a randy flamenco teacher, a thirsty King Charles XII of Sweden en route to battle, and a diabolical metaphor for the horrors inflicted by European colonialism. It is a journey that unveils the beauty of single moments, the pettiness of others, life's grandeur, and the humor and tragedy hidden within us all.

With unprecedented access, CARTEL LAND is a riveting, on-the-ground look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy - the murderous Mexican drugels. In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as "El Doctor," leads the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising against the violent Knights Templar drugel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona's Altar Valley - a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley - Tim "Nailer" Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to stop Mexico's drug wars from seeping across our border. Filmmaker Matthew Heineman embeds himself in the heart of darkness as Nailer, El Doctor, and theel each vie to bring their own brand of justice to a society where institutions have failed. From executive producer Kathryn Bigelow (THE HURT LOCKER, ZERO DARK THIRTY), CARTEL LAND is a chilling, visceral meditation on the breakdown of order and the blurry line between good and evil. At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Heineman received both the Directing Award and Special Jury Award for Cinematography in the U.S. Documentary competition.

Despite just two albums to her name Amy Winehouse is one of the biggest music icons in British history. With a voice oft described as a combination of Billy Holiday, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan, Amy Winehouse was a pop star with soul; a once in two generational musical talent whose appeal crossed cultural and demographic boundaries.
