GEMINI

Mystery/thriller; In English; 93 minutes; 2018

Directed by Aaron Katz
Starring Lola Kirke, Zoe Kravitz, John Cho

"Aaron Katz's playful L.A. neo-noir pits the elements of a scrappy whodunit against the backdrop of film industry satire, keeps us guessing the whole way through."
-- Eric Kohn, IndieWire

LEANING INTO THE WIND- ANDY GOLDSWORTHY

Documentary; In English; 93 minutes; 2017

Directed by Thomas Riedelsheimer
Starring Andy Goldsworthy, Holly Goldsworthy

"Like 'Rivers and Tides', also directed by Riedelsheimer, 'Leaning Into the Wind' is a study in seeing, in subordinating one's self to the elements, in creating with nature rather than from it...It's still a contemplative beauty, a chance to consider and be moved by a richer sort of connectedness than our lives typically allow. Goldsworthy steeps himself in forests and streams, creating sculpture from driftwood or stones, works that honor the flow of the elements around them -- and will eventually be overwhelmed by them."
-- Alan Scherstuhl, The Village Voice

Directed by Ferenc Torok
Starring Peter Rudolf, Bence Tasnadi, Tamas Szabo Kimmel

"Simple, powerful, made with conviction and skill."
-- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

THE OUTHOUSE

Documentary; In English; 2017

Directed by Bradley Norman

In the mid-1980s outside this college town, home of the Kansas Jayhawks, punk rock history was being made in the middle of a cornfield. Where the pavement turned to gravel, in a small, primitive cinder block building, bands like Fugazi, the Melvins, Rollins Band, Gwar, the Circle Jerks, Body Count, Social Distortion, Bad Brains, White Zombie, Descendents, Sonic Youth, Green Day, Fishbone, the Meat Puppets, Helmet and Nirvana played to all-ages crowds, a raucous scene of misfits and anarchists on the margins of youth culture. This was The Outhouse. Small, dark and sometimes dangerous, it quickly gained a reputation as a haven for the bands other venues were afraid of, and the kids who loved them.

"The Outhouse" tells the story of this legendary, lawless punk venue (1985-1997) in the voices of the musicians, the fans, the promoters, the local sheriff and the pissed-off neighbors. Independent filmmaker Brad Norman, an Outhouse regular who later booked bands there, spent five years tracking down amateur footage, grainy photos and show flyers, and interviewing regulars and musicians, including Ice T, Henry Rollins, Fugazi's Ian MacKaye and Gwar frontman Dave Brockie.

GRACE JONES: BLOODLIGHT AND BAMI

Documentary; In English & in French with English subtitles; 115 minutes; 2017

Directed by Sophie Fiennes
Starring Grace Jones, Jean-Paul Goude, Sly & Robbie

"Grace Jones takes us on an access-absolutely-all-areas tour of her world in this globe-trotting doc...'Bloodlight and Bami' defiantly reflects the experimental whirlwind of Jones's existence: her ability to look and feel relevant decades since she started out."
-- Dave Calhoun, Time Out

THE HEART OF NUBA

Documentary; In English; 85 minutes; 2018

Directed by Kenneth A. Carlson
Starring Dr. Tom Catena

"It's a moving and remarkable story and it represents a great cause. It's tempting to call Dr. Catena a living saint."
-- Glenn Kenny, The New York Times

SOUVENIR

Romance/musical/drama; In French with English subtitles; 90 minutes; 2016

Directed by Bavo Defurne
Starring Isabelle Huppert, Kevin Azais, Johan Leysen

"Defurne's film is highly stylized with vibrant colors and modern interiors. The incomparable Huppert gets to sing a few songs and model some fabulous dresses, but it is her sly, expressive performance that really dazzles."
-- Gary Kramer, Philadelphia Gay News

ORIGINAL MUSIC BY THOMAS LAUDERDALE & PINK MARTINI
THOMAS WILL APPEAR OPENING NIGHT OF "SOUVENIR" TO INTRODUCE THE FILM AND HOST A Q&A AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE FIRST EVENING SCREENING!

RBG

Directed by Julie Cohen, Betsy West

"A fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing documentary that makes one heck of a play to remind people of Ruth Bader Ginsburg's vitality and importance, now more than ever."
-- Kate Erbland, IndieWire
