Winner of every major Best Musical award on Broadway and in the West End, Kinky Boots is the hottest show in town! Broadcast straight from London to Port Townsend.

With songs by Grammy® and Tony® Award winning pop icon Cyndi Lauper, and based on the comedy film about a son who reluctantly inherits his father’s shoe factory, Kinky Boots continues to strut its spectacular stuff in its third year at the Adelphi Theatre.

Big-hearted and high-spirited, the West End musical, inspired by true events, tells the true story of Charlie Price, the new owner of his late father’s Northampton shoe factory. Trying to live up to his father’s legacy and save the family business from bankruptcy, Charlie finds inspiration in the form of Lola, an entertainer in need of some sturdy stilettos.

As they work to turn the factory around, this unlikely pair finds that they have more in common than they ever dreamed possible… and discovers that when you change your mind, you can change the world.

The uplifting tale of success against the odds was first brought to life on the big screen in 2005, with Oscar nominated actor Chiwetel Ejiofor starring as the spectacular Lola, before its musical adaptation premiered in Chicago in October 2012. Kinky Boots made its Broadway debut in April 2013, going on to win a season-high 13 Tony Award nominations, winning 6 (including Best Musical and Best Score).

Terrence Malick's sweeping love story, set in rural America. From Roger Ebert's review: "Days of Heaven'' is above all one of the most beautiful films ever made. Malick's purpose is not to tell a story of melodrama, but one of loss. His tone is elegiac. He evokes the loneliness and beauty of the limitless Texas prairie. In the first hour of the film there is scarcely a scene set indoors. The farm workers camp under the stars and work in the fields, and even the farmer is so besotted by the weather that he tinkers with wind instruments on the roof of his Gothic mansion...This is a movie made by a man who knew how something felt, and found a way to evoke it in us. That feeling is how a child feels when it lives precariously, and then is delivered into security and joy, and then has it all taken away again--and blinks away the tears and says it doesn't hurt." 1978.

One of the most important but untold science stories of our time—a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet. Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on Earth—from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle; from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools—they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life. Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature on its head, and give us a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be.

The Biggest Little Farm

A testament to the immense complexity of nature, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature.

The land they’ve chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, and bringing in animals of every kind– including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. When the farm’s ecosystem finally begins to reawaken, so does the Chesters’ hope – but as their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, they realize that to survive they will have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.

Inspired to write because no one took a “little black girl” seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative.

Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels “The Bluest Eye,” “Sula” and “Song of Solomon,” her role as an editor of iconic African-American literature and her time teaching at Princeton University.

Adapted from the acclaimed novel by Kent Nerburn. The story follows a white author who becomes intertwined with the heart of contemporary Native American life in the sparse lands of the Dakota's by a 95-year-old Lakota elder and his side-kick.

Film-maker Steven Lewis Simpson knew that traditional film distributors would have no idea how to access the core audience for the film so he opted to bypass them and started self-distributing directly to theatres. He could never imagined it would prove so successful and unprecedented in the landscape of theatrical distribution in the US. The film has become the most successful self-distributed movie of 2017 in the US as as the most successful non-Hollywood Native American film in years.

ASBURY PARK: RIOT, REDEMPTION, ROCK 'N ROLL tells the story of the long troubled town of Asbury Park, and how the power of music can unite a divided community.  A once storied seaside resort, Asbury Park erupted in flames during a summer of civil unrest, crippling the town for the next 45 years and reducing it to a state of urban blight.  A town literally divided by a set of railroad tracks, the riot destroyed the fabled Westside jazz and blues scene, but from the flames of the burning city emerged the iconic Jersey sound.  

ASBURY PARK returns Asbury sons Steven Van Zandt, Southside Johnny Lyon and Bruce Springsteen to the legendary Upstage, the psychedelic after hours club where they got their start, featuring never before seen interviews and performances.  Shuttered for four and a half decades, the Upstage remains a perfect time capsule of the Club which united both sides of the tracks in Asbury and acted as a crucible for young talent.  Now, as Asbury Park enjoys its long awaited renaissance, it is music which has brought it back from the dead. 

This major theatrical event will also include a bonus feature of never before seen footage, as Van Zandt, Southside Johnny, and Springsteen play a now legendary concert to a sold out Paramount Theater and trade guitar licks with the future of music in Asbury, a group of 11-year-old rockers who prove the best days for the town may just lie ahead.

"Hilarious! Molly Shannon is brilliant." — Indiewire
Wild Nights With Emily - Rosebud Cinema - Ends Thursday 5/9

In the mid-19th century, Emily Dickinson is writing prolifically, baking gingerbread, and enjoying a passionate, lifelong romantic relationship with another woman, her friend and sister-in-law Susan...yes this is the iconic American poet, popularly thought to have been a recluse. Beloved comic Molly Shannon leads in this humorous yet bold reappraisal of Dickinson, informed by her private letters. While seeking publication of some of the 1,775 poems written during her lifetime, Emily (Shannon) finds herself facing a troupe of male literary gatekeepers too confused by her genius to take her work seriously. Instead her work attracts the attention of an ambitious woman editor, who also sees Emily as a convenient cover for her own role in buttoned-up Amherst's most bizarre love triangle. A timely critique of how women's history is rewritten, WILD NIGHTS WITH EMILY remains vibrant, irreverent and tender--a perhaps closer depiction of Emily Dickinson's real life than anything seen before.

PG-13, 84 min.

"At once a sexy, comedic romp revealing far more lived passion and duplicity in the 19th century adjoining households of Amherst...than previously imagined and a fresh look at Emily's work and her struggles to get them published." - Reeling Reviews

Marina Abramovic: The Artist is Present - Rose Theatre

Community Arts Film Series in partnership with Northwind Arts Center
Dir. Matthew Akers / USA / 2012 / 106 min.

Seductive, fearless, and outrageous, Marina Abramovic has been redefining what art is for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her physical and mental limits – and at times risking her life in the process – she creates performances that challenge, shock, and move us. Through her and with her, boundaries are crossed, consciousness expanded, and art as we know it is reborn. She is, quite simply, one of the most compelling artists of our time. (Contains nudity and disturbing images). “Breathtaking…Extraordinary. The movie’s power as a potent, second-hand art is damn near peerless.”Time Out New York

Heddy Honigmann, who has had retrospectives at MoMA and the Centre Pompidou, is the ne plus ultra of documentary filmmakers. With BUDDY, she turns her unerring eye to the relationship between dogs and people. Forget the ubiquitous “emotional support dog,” everyone’s favorite companion. These six pooches do amazing things: they open and close drawers, turn their mistress over in bed, remove paper from the computer printer, push a syringe into flesh, put on a woman’s socks, and pull up her blanket. They soothe a veteran with PTSD and a severely autistic child. With characteristic reserves of warmth and humor, Honigmann gives the dogs equal face time – a film about love, courage and trust, both human and canine. (Exerpt from Film Forum). NR, 86 min.

“A tender tribute to tail-wagging treasures. Man's best friend receives a cinematic pat on the head in BUDDY, the latest documentary by veteran Peru-born Dutch director Heddy Honigmann. Observing how six service dogs provide crucial daily help and companionship for their grateful owners, the ruminative, accessible affair proves as soothing to the viewer as the faithful pets are to their humans… Aided by the fluent, unobtrusive editing of the experienced Jessica de Koning. It's a simple recipe — a nice film about nice people and their lovely dogs — but one that pays regular dividends in terms of quietly accumulated insight and interludes of touching sweetness. Crucially, her warm sensitivity as an interviewer is palpable, earning the trust of her two-legged and four-legged subjects alike.” - The Hollywood Reporter

In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.

"Wolff is never less than mesmerizing in this role, which demands a performance that is, at times, more physical than emotive." — Washington Post

Reimagine Robert Redford’s adventure in ALL IS LOST with a young woman sailor, an M.D. who intends to fulfill her dream by setting sail alone to a remote island in the Atlantic. She – and her well-equipped, state-of-the-art sailboat – seem ready for anything. But following a violent storm, she finds herself approaching an endangered vessel, overloaded with refugees. Maritime law (report the emergency; then split) conflicts with her Hippocratic oath and her every instinct to help save a boatload of desperate people. 95 min.

“Filmmaking as crisp and slicing as a sea breeze…(an adventure film) with a spinning moral compass and a topical dimension that proves even more gripping than its brilliantly achieved visceral action.” – Jessica Kiang, Variety

“A stark, impressively pared-back parable that leaves most of the big questions off-screen as it focuses on one woman’s impossible position between following the orders of the frustratingly invisible coastguard — who tell her to stay completely out of the matter beyond reporting it — and her sense of empathy and duty toward up to 100 human beings who might not survive if no one intervenes in time… Carrying practically the entire film, Wolff is never less than remarkable in a demanding role that’s 80 percent silence and 20 percent English-language dialogue.”

"A thought-provoking documentary presenting the challenges and flaws of democracy from ancient Greece to modern times." — Spirituality and Practice

Coming at a moment of profound political and social crisis, WHAT IS DEMOCRACY? reflects on a word we too often take for granted.

Director Astra Taylor’s idiosyncratic, philosophical journey spans millennia and continents: from ancient Athens’ groundbreaking experiment in self-government to capitalism’s roots in medieval Italy; from modern-day Greece grappling with financial collapse and a mounting refugee crisis to the United States reckoning with its racist past and the growing gap between rich and poor.

Featuring a diverse cast—including celebrated theorists, trauma surgeons, activists, factory workers, asylum seekers, and former prime ministers—this urgent film connects the past and the present, the emotional and the intellectual, the personal and the political, in order to provoke and inspire. If we want to live in democracy, we must first ask what the word even means.

Gloria (Julianne Moore) is a free-spirited divorcée who spends her days at a straight-laced office job and her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. After meeting Arnold (John Turturro) on a night out, she finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with both the joys of budding love and the complications of dating, identity, and family.

From Academy Award-winning director Sebastián Lelio (A FANTASTIC WOMAN, DISOBEDIENCE) comes a sophisticated romantic comedy that shows love can strike at any time, relationships are never simple, and nothing can get you down as long as you keep dancing.

"Us feels like something meant to be watched over and over until the tape wears down, and we graft our own meaning and nightmares onto it." — New York Magazine
Us - Rosebud Cinema - Ends Thursday 4/4

After sending shockwaves across contemporary culture and setting a new standard for provocative, socially-conscious horror films with his directorial debut, GET OUT, Academy Award-winning visionary Jordan Peele returns with another original nightmare that he has written, directed and produced.

Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (BLACK PANTHER’s Winston Duke), and their two children for an idyllic summer getaway.

Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family.

After spending a tense beach day with their friends, Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. US pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

"Peele is this generation's Hitchcock, for sure, but also a true American original with introspective themes in hand and suspense to spare." - USA Today

"Unnerving in tone and brazenly terrifying in story, Us is the kind of movie you watch with your fingers splayed over your face." - US Weekly

"It's a satirical doppelgänger nightmare of the American Way, a horrified double-take in the mirror of certainty, a realisation that the corroborative image of happiness and prosperity you hoped to see has turned its back, like something by Magritte." - Guardian

"Five Stars! Another thrilling exploration of the past and oppression this country is still too afraid to bring up. Peele wants us to talk, and he’s given audiences the material to think, to feel our way through some of the darker sides of the human condition and the American experience." - RogerEbert.com

Never Look Away - Rosebud Cinema

Inspired by real events and spanning three eras of German history, NEVER LOOK AWAY tells the story of a young art student, Kurt (Tom Schilling) who falls in love with fellow student, Ellie (Paula Beer). Ellie’s father, Professor Seeband (Sebastian Koch), a famous doctor, is dismayed at his daughter’s choice of boyfriend, and vows to destroy the relationship. What neither of them knows is that their lives are already connected through a terrible crime Seeband committed decades ago.

Based on the life of Gerhard Richter.

"The more I think about NEVER LOOK AWAY the more I think about it in terms of what it has to say about art and artistic expression, especially for those living in a totalitarian society. Art is always in the crosshairs. Art must be controlled: what can and cannot be said, as well as how things must be said. Ideologues demand that art should be uplifting, art must carry the 'correct' message, art must abolish ambiguity. What on earth would happen if artists were free to make the art they want to make?" - RogerEbert.com

FREE FILM FOR THE COMMUNITY. In honor of Agnes Varda, who passed away last week. First-come, first-seated.

Agnes Varda was, with Jean-Luc Godard, the wise elder of the pathbreaking French New Wave, and a specialist in crafting fascinating, open-eyed studies of people living eccentric lives on society's fringes. "It is the people who have no official place in society who need to be listened to," she has said, and here, in collaboration with the wildly popular young French artist JR, she combines footage of the process of creating large-scale photographic images of marginalized people - a goat herder, a waitress, a postman, the wives of dockworkers - with stories of how she came in contact with them. FACES PLACES's tone is delightfully improvisational and whimsical; the growing friendship between JR and Varda, two artists separated by five decades, is charming; and the fearless Varda allows the melancholy, in the meditations on those she has lost or outlived, flow too. (Telluride Film Festival)

Mr. Walch's film series are a perennial favorite in the Starlight Room. He returns to celebrate the work of Sidney Lumet.  Beginning with Lumet’s inaugural masterpiece 12 ANGRY MEN, Walch will turn to Lumet’s greatest achievement, NETWORK, and he will conclude with his favorite, the unsung RUNNING ON EMPTY.  In each instance Lumet, who despised the word auteur, honors the work of the writer — Reginald Rose for 12 ANGRY MEN, Paddy Chayevsky for NETWORK, and Naomi Foner for RUNNING ON EMPTY.  Each film suits its style to the story and not the story to the style.  Each film is a sublime collaboration by a deeply professional director who always took charge by taking a back seat.

12 ANGRY MEN: Following the closing arguments in a murder trial, the 12 members of the jury must deliberate, with a guilty verdict meaning death for the accused, an inner-city teen. As the dozen men try to reach a unanimous decision while sequestered in a room, one juror (Henry Fonda) casts considerable doubt on elements of the case. Personal issues soon rise to the surface, and conflict threatens to derail the delicate process that will decide one boy's fate. 95 min.

Apollo 11 - Rosebud Cinema - Ends Thursday 3/21

A cinematic event fifty years in the making. Crafted from a newly discovered trove of 65mm footage, and more than 11,000 hours of uncatalogued audio recordings, Apollo 11 takes us straight to the hear t of NASA’s most celebrated mission—the one that first put men on the moon, and forever made Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin into household names. Immersed in the perspectives of the astronauts, the team in Mission Control, and the millions of spectators on the ground, we vividly experience those momentous days and hours in 1969 when humankind took a giant leap into the future.

"This doesn't just feel like a movie. It gives you the sensation that you've been transported right into the middle of history." - Rolling Stone

"Although we know how the mission turns out, "Apollo 11" generates and maintains suspense. And it rekindles a crazy sense of wonder." - New York Times

"A cool, meticulous, at times enthralling documentary that captures the Apollo 11 flight in its entirety through raw footage drawn from the NASA vaults." - Variety

"SOMETHING WILD is quite a movie. Demme is a master of finding the bizarre in the ordinary." — Roger Ebert

The 1986 cult classic, directed by Jonathan Demme, comes to the Starlight!

Free-spirited Lulu (Melanie Griffith) sets her sights on uptight banker Charles (Jeff Daniels) for a little bit of fun. Their relationship starts off simple enough with a tryst and some modest adventure, but Lulu wants Charles to pose as her husband at a high school reunion. It seems harmless enough to Charles, but that all changes when Lulu's actual husband, Ray (Ray Liotta), confronts them at the event. Understandably, Ray isn't content to let Charles and Lulu ride off into the sunset.

When pioneering and artist Michael Heizer finds the giant boulder he’s been searching for since 1968, it sets off an epic struggle to realize one of America’s newest and largest public artworks, ‘Levitated Mass.’ The 340-ton rock’s journey from a desert quarry to a perch atop Heizer’s gigantic, walled slot in the earth at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art attracted international media and challenged the imagination of thousands as it crawled 105 miles through 22 cities on a football field-length, 206-wheeled trailer. “Wonderfully entertaining. It juxtaposes a history of Heizer’s revolutionary career as a “negative space” sculptor with an insider’s view of the insanely complex planning it took to move the two-story monolith.” – LA Weekly

Q&A with director/choreographer Trey McIntyre following the film!

In 2014, after ten years of building his dance company in Boise, Idaho, to great acclaim, Trey McIntyre shut it down. Its sudden and mysterious end is the backdrop of McIntyre’s introspective documentary, which explores themes of creativity, loss, and transformation embodied in the dances choreographed during the company’s life. Excerpts from some of his best known pieces include “Ma Maison,” inspired by his encounters with the New Orleans Preservation Jazz Band; “Mercury Half Life,” set to the music of Queen; and the elegiac “Bad Winter.” McIntyre displays a remarkable ability to create work both idiosyncratic and accessible.

"Exquisite. Musically gorgeous and visually ravishing." — Guardian

A critical and audience favorite at the Cannes Film Festival (where it was award the Best Director prize) Pawel Pawlikowski's follow-up to the Academy-Award-winning IDA is a ravishing, music-fuelled romance charting two mismatched lovers caught between East and West in 1950s Europe.

In the ruins of post-WWII Poland, pianist Wiktor is commissioned by the Soviet state to form a musical ensemble to help rekindle national pride. Whilst touring the villages in search of talent he meets the beautiful Zula, a fiery and charismatic singer with a past, and the two fall passionately in love. When a performance in Berlin offers the pair an opportunity for escape to the West, a last-minute decision finds them stranded on either side of the Iron Curtain. As the years march on, Wiktor and Zula--whether through political circumstance or personal impetuosity--struggle to find their moment in time...

Spanning 15 years across Warsaw, Berlin, Paris and Yugoslavia, and inspired by the lives of the director's own parents, COLD WAR meticulously recreates the era with virtuosic black-and-white cinematography, and an extraordinary soundtrack that is used judiciously to signify the passage of time and shifting relationships. Warmly lyrical, impossibly romantic and visually stunning, COLD WAR is a film to remember.

"Prepare to be blown away." — Vulture
Capernaum - Rosebud Cinema - Starts Friday 3/1

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, CAPERNAUM ("Chaos") tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the "crime" of giving him life.

Directed by Nadine Labaki, CAPERNAUM follows Zain, a gutsy streetwise child as he flees his negligent parents, survives through his wits on the streets, takes care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil and her baby son, Yonas, is jailed for a crime, and finally, seeks justice in a courtroom.

CAPERNAUM was made with a cast of non-professionals playing characters whose lives closesely parallel their own. Following her script, Labaki placed her performers in scenes and asked them to react spontaneously with their own words and gestures. 

While steeped in the quiet routines of ordinary people, CAPERNAUM is a film with an expansive palette: without warning it can ignite with emotional intensity, surprise with unexpected tenderness, and inspire with flashes of poetic imagery.

CAPERNAUM is ultimately a hopeful film that stirs the heart as deeply as it cries for action.

NEW 4K RESTORATION

Winner of 2 Academy Awards – Best Actress, Best Screenplay

Starring Simone Signoret and Laurence Harvey

(1959) New-in-town, working-class born and bred Laurence Harvey sets his sights way high – on Heather Sears, daughter of the gloweringly formidable boss, Donald Wolfit – and her social stratosphere – but finds himself diverted by the more mature and sensuous Simone Signoret, in an Academy Award-winning performance, with another one going to Neil Paterson for his adaptation of the steamy John Braine novel. Hermione Baddeley (an ex-lover of Harvey’s) as Elspeth earned the record for shortest Oscar-nominated performance in history (2 minutes, 32 seconds). Approx. 115 min.

“The most significant British feature of the Fifties.”Georges Sadoul

“Brief Encounter, 50s style.” – Time Out (London)

“At last someone in a British film actually admitted that sex was enjoyable.”George Perry

“Acclaimed as the first British film to treat sex seriously and as one of the first to show the North of England as it 'really was'.” – Time Out (London)

Captured over two nights in November 2018 by The Music Center at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, the entire concert, along with special behind-the-scenes interviews with the artists, will be shown in movie theaters for one night, Thursday, February 7.

As an artist, Mitchell performed with an emotional honesty that resonated with a wide audience. The unifying effect of Mitchell’s music rings out with a closing group singalong to “Big Yellow Taxi” during which Mitchell herself is captured on camera. But the biggest moment, the most emotional, is saved for the end when the celebrated singer takes to the stage to blow out candles on a cake after the crowd serenades her with “Happy Birthday.”

Set in a surface mine, two boys sink into a seemingly innocent power game with Mother Nature as the sole observer. Alone in the wild the two boys play around.

We're showing this year's Oscar nominated short films in three categories: Animated, Live Action and Documentary.

These are the documentary selections

BLACK SHEEP – Ed Perkins and Jonathan Chinn, UK, 27 minutes
Everything changed for Cornelius Walker on 27 November 2000 when Damilola Taylor was killed. Damilola was 11, the same age as Cornelius. He lived five minutes away. He had the same skin colour. Cornelius’s mother, scared for her son’s safety, moved their family out of London. Cornelius suddenly found himself living on a white estate run by racists. But rather than fight them, Cornelius decided to become more like the people who hated him. They became his family and kept him safe. And in return, Cornelius became submerged in a culture of violence and hatred. But as the violence and racism against other black people continued, Cornelius struggled to marry his real identity with the one he had acquired.

END GAME – Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman, USA, 40 minutes
Where will loved ones spend their last days? Who will be in the room? What feelings and secrets need to be shared with family before it is too late? Acclaimed Academy Award-winning filmmakers Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (THE TIMES OF HARVEY MILK, THE CELLULOID CLOSET, PARAGRAPH 175) probe these questions and more in the context of two San Francisco Bay Area medical facilities on the forefront of creating new paradigms for end of life decisions with grace.

LIFEBOAT – Skye Fitzgerald and Bryn Mooser, USA, 40 minutes
Volunteers from a German non-profit risk the waves of the Mediterranean to pluck refugees from sinking rafts pushing off from Libya in the middle of the night. LIFEBOAT puts a human face on one of the world’s greatest contemporary, global crises and provides a spark of hope surrounding how civil society can intervene in the refugee crisis in a meaningful way.

A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN – Marshall Curry, USA, 7 minutes
In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism – an event largely forgotten from American history. A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN, made entirely from archival footage filmed that night, transports audiences to this chilling gathering and shines a light on the power of demagoguery and anti-Semitism in the United States.

PERIOD. END OF SENTENCE. – Rayka Zahtabchi and Melissa Berton, India, 26 minutes
In a rural village outside Delhi, India, women lead a quiet revolution. They fight against the deeply rooted stigma of menstruation. PERIOD. END OF SENTENCE. — a documentary short directed by Rayka Zehtabchi — tells their story. For generations, these women didn’t have access to pads, which lead to health problems and girls missing school or dropping out entirely. But when a sanitary pad machine is installed in the village, the women learn to manufacture and market their own pads, empowering the women of their community. They name their brand “FLY,” because they want women “to soar.” Their flight is, in part, enabled by the work of high school girls half a world away, in California, who raised the initial money for the machine and began a non-profit called “The Pad Project.”
