Woody (voice of Tom Hanks) has always been confident about his place in the world, and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that’s Andy or Bonnie.

LATE NIGHT

Katherine Newbury (Emma Thompson) is a pioneer and legendary host on the late-night talk-show circuit. When she’s accused of being a “woman who hates women,” she puts affirmative action on the to-do list, and—presto!—Molly (Mindy Kaling) is hired as the one woman in Katherine’s all-male writers’ room. But Molly might be too little too late, as the formidable Katherine also faces the reality of low ratings and a network that wants to replace her. Molly, wanting to prove she’s not simply a diversity hire who’s disrupting the comfort of the brotherhood, is determined to help Katherine by revitalizing her show and career—and possibly effect even bigger change at the same time. Thompson brings pathos and amusingly severe charm to the pantsuit-clad Katherine. Smartly written by Kaling and snappily directed by Nisha Ganatra, Late Night takes on white privilege, entitlement, and a culture veering toward crassness and conservatism. Questioning how women in power are “supposed” to act, it delivers a winsome, sophisticated comedy about the times in which we live.

INVIOLABLE - THE FIGHT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS plus Q & A with Director Angela Andersen

The Martha's Vineyard Film Center will premiere the English version of Inviolable.

The documentary first aired in Germany and France in December 2018,  around the 70th anniversary of the UN Declaration of Human Rights. It has been nominated for best documentary in Europe and selected by several film festivals in the US and elsewhere.

The images are vivid and often beautiful but the message is relentless.  With more and more emboldened authoritarian regimes the moral principles that ensure certain standards of human behaviour in our societies and which are regularly protected by law are threatened.

We meet people who are tirelessly fighting for human rights. Portraying a nurse in Africa, a student leader in HongKong, an environmental activist in Central America, a blind barefoot lawyer from China, journalists in Istanbul - these people give us hope that the fight is worth the struggle. Filmed in China, Guatemala, Turkey, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Canada, USA, Indonesia, and Kenya.

critics call the film: "Spectacular - Impressive - Enlightening - Moving - A must see."

Director Angela Andersen will be present for a Q & A after the film.

Emperors of the Deep is a unique documentary that takes the viewer on a journey into the world of sharks.

He travels around the world to answer those questions by meeting with experts and diving with sharks.  As he does so, he uncovers more death and destruction on the high seas than one could possible imagine. His discoveries change how the viewer feels about sharks from man-eaters to important apex predators that need protection.

MAIDEN -- co-sponsor with SAIL MV on Friday, July 12th

Maiden is the story of how Tracy Edwards, a 24-year-old cook in charter boats, became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World in 1989. Tracy's inspirational dream was opposed on all sides: her male competitors thought an all-women crew would never make it, the chauvinistic yachting press took bets on her failure, and potential sponsors rejected her, fearing they would die at sea and generate bad publicity. But Tracy refused to give up: she remortgaged her home and bought a second hand boat, putting everything on the line to ensure the team made it to the start line. Although blessed with tremendous self-belief Tracy was also beset by crippling doubts and was only able to make it through with the support of her remarkable crew. With their help she went on to shock the sports world and prove that women are very much the equal of men.

FIRE AT SEA

Gianfranco Rosi's incisive, poignant and deeply moving portrait of the Mediterranean island of Lampedusa--and the humanitarian crisis occurring in the seas around it--is both a masterly work of documentary filmmaking and a timely call for urgent action. Situated 150 miles south of Sicily, Lampedusa has hit headlines as the first port of call for hundreds of thousands of African and Middle Eastern refugees hoping to make a new life in Europe. After spending months living on the island and engaging with its inhabitants, Rosi accumulated an incredible array of footage, portraying the history, culture and daily lives of the islanders. Focusing on 12-year-old Samuele, as he explores the land and attempts to gain mastery of the sea, the film slowly builds a breathtakingly naturalistic portrait of the Lampedusan people and the events that surround them. The result is a lyrical, poetic and searingly powerful documentary that casts neither judgement nor aspersions, but simply shows the world to the viewer--to utterly devastating effect.

VOICES OF BALTIMORE plus Q & A with co-Director Morna McNulty

The purpose of this film is to capture and preserve the rich oral histories of an aging and diminishing population of African Americans who 1) grew up in the Mason/Dixon border area of Baltimore, and 2) who lived through the era of legal segregation in the Jim Crow south. The narratives will document the relevant lives of seven prominent Baltimore figures who attended segregated schools and/or desegregation before and following the 1954 Supreme Court Brown v Board of Education ruling. While our society has become more ethnically and racially diverse inequalities persist, including a return to increased school segregation and poverty. Notwithstanding, the topics of segregation and desegregation are often skewed towards the glorification of racial harmony and oversimplification of widespread national change. Whereas 21st century research proves desegregation to be unsuccessful, as evident in the overwhelming number of racially segregated schools and neighborhoods today, the stories told in this film are nevertheless an important introspection into the lives of living history. As film co-director/co-producer Morna McNulty suggests, “We have to re-examine where we've been in order to re-imagine where we are going. Voices of Baltimore represents the collective voices of a people whom history too often overlooks.”

Dr. Morna McNulty is Professor of Education at Towson University in the Department of Elementary Education

A PRIVATE WAR with Special Guest Director Matthew Heineman!

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her -- along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) -- to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

Director Matthew Heineman will participate in a Q & A after the film!
