LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS CENTRAL NEW MEXICOINDIVISIBLE-NOB HILL & ALBUQUERQUE NOW SPECIAL!

An unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault to the foster care system, and the healthcare conglomerate to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

"An illuminating and hard-hitting documentary that makes a solid case for equal rights for women." - Frederic and Mary Ann BrussatSpirituality and Practice

"In her ambitious film, Equal Means Equal, Kamala Lopez points out that "72% of Americans are completely invested in the false belief that the genders are explicitly equal under the U.S. Constitution." - Alexandra MacAaron, Women's Voices for Change

"A swiftly paced documentary about America's systemic war on women's rights ..." - Abby Garnett, Village Voice

"Eye-opening, infuriating, this doc will make you rise to action, making it an absolute must-see!" - Brigid Presecky, FF2 Media

Dir. Kevin McKiernan - 2019 - 89m - ALL SEATS $8 - Director in person!

SPECIAL THANKS TO BOB ANDERSON & CO-PRESENTERS INDIGENOUS RIGHTS CENTER (IRC)!

ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW BY CLICKING HERE!

In 1973 a rookie reporter tries to cover armed members of the American Indian Movement who have taken over the historic village of Wounded Knee, South Dakota. Along the way he is threatened by vigilantes who oppose the takeover and believe the press is the enemy of law and order. After he defies a government news blackout and embeds with the militants, he is arrested by FBI agents. Forty years later, he meets a Yurok Indian fisherman in California, a man he unwittingly photographed during the 10-week occupation. The two travel back to the Dakotas and later to the pipeline protests on the Standing Rock Reservation, where they witness the legacy of 1970's activism in Indian Country. Meanwhile, the reporter launches a new investigation into the murder of his former roommate, a mysterious Canadian Native who took part in the Wounded Knee uprising. He butts heads with the FBI again, this time over the Bureau's alleged practice of 'snitch-jacketing' the Canadian woman as an informer. The story takes another unsettling turn when the reporter confronts the founders of the Indian movement with alleged ties to her killing, a decision that threatens to undermine his status as a trusted outsider.

“A humane but unflinching look at one of the most famous Indigenous resistance groups in modern history ...McKiernan was the only reporter embedded in Wounded Knee, young and green and hungry when the occupiers were young and green and hungry ... McKiernan points over and over to how the tactics (FBI) used to undo AIM’s occupation mirrored those used by the CIA in supporting foreign coups ...McKiernan’s latest offering, like his previous ones, serves as proof that such undertakings can be completed in a respectful, engaging manner and function as a bridge to a wider American history for a non-Native audience ...McKiernan’s best work in this documentary comes with the delicate humanization of the AIM rank and file. Nowhere is that more true than in the case of Willard Carlson—a guiding voice in the documentary ... In an era of continuing struggles over land rights, sovereignty, and broken promises, Carlson proves that while it was often obscured by egos and drama, the core mission of Wounded Knee—to strike back at systemic injustice—is still alive and well in the rising generation.” - New Republic

Starring Elijah Wood, Stephen McHattie, Garfield Wilson, Madeleine Sami and Martin Donovan. Norval Greenwood, a privileged man-child arrives at the beautiful and remote coastal cabin of his estranged father, who he hasn't seen in 30 years. He quickly discovers that not only is dad a disapproving jerk, he also has a shady past that is rushing to catch up with him. Now, hundreds of miles from his cushy comfort zone, Norval must battle with demons both real and perceived in order to reconnect with a father he barely knows.

"Wild, weird and yet nothing less than wholly sincere in its focus on the father-son relationship at the core of the film, Timpson's brilliant debut feature reveals an unambiguously great filmmaker." -  Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, Film International

"Ant Timpson's debut feature Come To Daddy is a weird and wild ride, full of surprises and a superb performance from star Elijah Wood." - Rachel West, That Shelf

"A blast, a fever dream to enjoy for its twisty chicanery, but it's also a smart and thoughtful film..." - Leigh Monson, Birth.Movies.Death.

"Dark, unexpected, bloody and fucking hilarious - not to be missed!" - Zoe Rose Smith, JumpCut Online

Parasite - the Oscar contending Korean thriller!

Feb 12 to Feb 16
Wednesday to Sunday 2:30, 7:45

Dir. Bong Joon Ho - 2019 - 132m - South Korea - In Korean with English subtitles

Bong Joon Ho brings his singular mastery home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. 

Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide “indispensable” luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims’ newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. By turns darkly hilarious and heart-wrenching, PARASITE showcases a modern master at the top of his game.

"It's a nearly perfect film, from Bong's masterful use of framing and visual language and control of a wildly shifting tone to the performances (all terrific) to the commentary on class division." - Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

"Bong Joon Ho has delivered one of the most well-assembled and compelling films of all time, which flawlessly navigates humor, despair, satire, and elements of thrilling horror to create an experience I won't soon forget." - 

Kent Garrison, Mad About Movies Podcast

"Parasite flips through about ten different genres and takes the best bits of each; it feels like a relaxing buffet that expresses and sparks a love of cinema." - Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com

"Parasite is a major accomplishment and a must-see film for anyone who loves cinema." - Mina Takla, AwardsWatch

Three Christs

Feb 12 to Feb 16
Wednesday to Sunday 5:15pm

Dir. John Avnet - 2020 - 119m - No matinees

Starring Richard Gere, Peter Dinklage, Walton Goggins, Bradley Whitford, Julianna Margulies, Charlotte Hope!

In 1959, psychiatrist Dr. Alan Stone (Richard Gere) arrives at a mental hospital in Ypsilanti, Michigan armed with the radical belief that schizophrenic patients should be treated not with confinement and electroshock therapy but with empathy and understanding. As his first study, he takes on the particularly challenging case of three men—Joseph (Peter Dinklage), Leon (Walton Goggins), and Clyde (Bradley Whitford)—each of whom believes they are Jesus Christ. Hoping that by getting them together in the same room to confront their delusions he can break through to them, Dr. Stone begins a risky, unprecedented experiment that will push the boundaries of psychiatric medicine and leave everyone involved—including Dr. Stone himself—profoundly changed. Based on a remarkable true story, Three Christs is a fascinating and moving look at one man's journey into the deepest mysteries of the human mind.

"An amazing ensemble of actors creates a compelling story based on true events. This movie deserves to be seen." - Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com

Cunningham - a new doc on modern dance's top luminary!

Feb 17 to Feb 20
Monday to Thursday 4pm, 8:30

Dir. Alla Kovgan - 2019 - 93m

"Euphoric!  Sensational in every sense of the word" - Variety

CUNNINGHAM traces Merce Cunningham's artistic evolution over three decades of risk and discovery (1944–1972), from his early years as a struggling dancer in postwar New York to his emergence as one of the world’s most visionary choreographers. The 3D technology weaves together Merce's philosophies and stories, creating a visceral journey into his innovative work. A breathtaking explosion of dance, music, and never-before-seen archival material, CUNNINGHAM is a timely tribute to one of the world’s greatest modern dance artists.

"JARRINGLY BEAUTIFUL. 'CUNNINGHAM' SUCCEEDS IN A WAY THAT MOST DANCE DOCUMENTARIES DO NOT: AS AN ART OBJECT IN AND OF ITSELF." - MARINA HARSS, THE NEW YORKER

"A VISUAL WONDER. [DOES] JUSTICE TO MERCE CUNNINGHAM'S SPIRIT OF INVENTIVENESS." - KENNETH TURAN, LOS ANGELES TIMES

Earth

Feb 17 to Feb 20
Monday to Thursday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Nikolaus Geyrhalter - 2019 - 115m - No Matinees

EARTH was filmed at seven locations that humans have transformed on a grand scale: Entire mountains being moved in California, a tunnel being sliced through rock at the Brenner Pass, an open-cast mine in Hungary, a marble quarry in Italy, a copper mine in Spain, the salt mine used to store radioactive waste in Wolfenbüttel and a tar sands landscape in Canada. Initially shown from above as abstract paintings, these terrains are subsequently explored on the ground: The film weaves together observational footage of machines in operation with conversations with the workers. Alongside statements on work processes, environmental damage and technological change, EARTH makes this constructed world visible in unique fashion by subtly paring it down: the piles of grey matter, hills and mountains. The blackness and the cracks. The sandy landscapes, criss-crossed by an array of mechanical devices that scuttle about like caterpillars or worms. The dimensions are gigantic, the proportions out of control; the world has slipped from humanity’s grasp. “There is always a bigger machine, a bigger engine and when all fails there is dynamite. We always win,” boast a quarry worker. Or do we?

"Aesthetically exhilarating and spectacular!” — Tony Pipolo, Artforum

FILM OF THE WEEK! "Spectacular, even awe-inspiring.” — Jonathan Romney, Film Comment

"Despite its apocalyptic visions, it feels curiously optimistic because Geyrhalter hasn’t given up on us.” — Manohla Dargis, New York Times

"A most timely film in the light of a looming Sixth Extinction brought on by capitalist 'development'." — Louis Proyect, Counterpunch.org

"Geyrhalter brings fresh eye to 7 big digs and conversational knack to diverse workers. Big machines are cool to watch until you are forced to think about the damage they do." — Nora Lee Mandel, Maven's Nest

Friday to Monday 3:45, 8pm

Dir. Taika Waititi - 2019 - 109m

Writer director Taika Waititi (THOR: RAGNAROK, HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE), brings his signature style of humor and pathos to his latest film, JOJO RABBIT, a World War II satire that follows a lonely German boy (Roman Griffin Davis as JoJo) whose world view is turned upside down when he discovers his single mother (Scarlett Johansson) is hiding a young Jewish girl (Thomasin McKenzie) in their attic. Aided only by his idiotic imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler (Taika Waititi), Jojo must confront his blind nationalism.

"Taika Waititi's film is tender, daring, and sharp -- precisely pitched so that it keeps its path steady and its ambitions in check." - Clarisse Loughrey, Independent (UK)

"Bold in its inversion of expectations and its reimagining of a familiar subject. There's nothing trivial about it." - Paul Byrnes, Sydney Morning Herald

"It's so very enjoyable, not to mention offbeat and bizarre, all in a good way." - Diane Pershing, Malibu Times

"Lovely from start to finish. It is unflinching in its allegiance to joy and mirth, no matter how depraved and depressing human beings and their actions tend to be." - Oggs Cruz, Rappler

The Cave - Oscar contender for Best Documentary

Feb 21 to Feb 24
Friday to Monday 6pm

Dir. Feras Fayyad - 2019 - 95m - Syria - In Arabic with English subtitles - No Matinees

From National Geographic Documentary Films (FREE SOLO), Oscar nominee Feras Fayyad (“Last Men in Aleppo”) delivers an unflinching story of the Syrian war with his powerful new documentary, THE CAVE.

For besieged civilians, hope and safety lie underground inside the subterranean hospital known as The Cave, where 30 year-old pediatrician and managing physician Dr. Amani Ballor and her colleagues have claimed their right to work as equals alongside their male counterparts, doing their jobs in a way that would be unthinkable in what's left of the oppressively patriarchal culture that exists above.   Following the women as they contend with daily bombardments, chronic supply shortages, and the ever-present threat of chemical attacks, THE CAVE paints a stirring portrait of courage, resilience and female solidarity.

"A blistering documentary about death defiance in a war zone." - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times

"A profile in courage under fire, The Cave sometimes relieves its enervating tension with occasional MASH-like interludes of levity: a surprise birthday party, some bickering over rice recipes, thoughtful drags on cigarettes." - Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out

"It's no surprise the film won the People's Choice Documentary Award at this year's Toronto International Film Festival." - Brad Wheeler, Globe and Mail

"A raw, urgent film about one of the great humanitarian crimes of our times, made all the starker for the utter lack of a global response." - Christopher Machell, CineVue

"To not see it - and Waad Al-Kateab and Edward Watts's likeminded For Sama, as well - is to bury one's head in the sand." - Graham Fuller, The Arts Desk

Young Lakota - Special Anniversary Screening!

Feb 22
Saturday 1pm ONLY!

Dir. Marion Lipschutz & Rose Rosenblatt - 2012 - 83m - All Seats $7

AN INDIGENOUS WOMEN RISING SPECIAL!  Proceeds will go to the Indigenous Women Rising Abortion Fund

The Pine Ridge Reservation is no stranger to strife and heartbreak, stark realities and inspired idealism. In Young Lakota, we are brought directly into the emotional and often uncertain journey of Sunny Clifford, her twin sister Serena, and their politically ambitious friend Brandon Ferguson, who all share the compelling desire to make a difference for themselves and their community. Their political awakening begins when Cecelia Fire Thunder, the first female president of their tribe, defies a proposed South Dakota law criminalizing all abortion by threatening to build a women’s clinic on the sovereign territory of the reservation. Sunny, just back on the reservation after two years in college, Serena, unwed and with a toddler, and Brendan with two little boys, find themselves immersed in this political battle as they struggle between opportunity and principle; between selling out or staying the course through twists and turns that they could not have anticipated. 

This is a uniquely sensitive portrayal of bright young people finding their way, as the film follows the surprising highs and lows of the statewide referendum on abortion and a divisive tribal election. Young Lakota tells the tale of the diverging paths Brandon and Sunny begin to take. Ultimately it is the complex interplay of personal choice, cultural, economic and political circumstance that defines who they are and what kind of adults they are becoming. Beyond the divisiveness and turmoil, the stark disappointments and heady triumphs, Sunny’s courage and Cecelia Fire Thunder’s wisdom gives Young Lakota a sense of enduring possibility and of life being lived deeply that will resonate with any audience.

Confucian Dreams

Feb 25 to Feb 27
Tuesday to Thursday

Dir. Mijie Li - 2019 - 82m - China - Mandarin w/ English subtitles

Filmmaker Mijie Li's first feature (she co-produced Steven Bognar and Julia Reichert's American Factory), Confucian Dream is an observational documentary about a Chinese woman's embrace of the ancient philosophy of Confucianism and how it affects her family.

Chaoyan, a young wife and mother, believes the ancient teachings of Confucianism will restore balance, respect and morality to her home. She involves her four-year-old son in the rigorous routine of chanting daily mantras. Little Chen may not yet understand the recitations' meanings, but mom is confident she's planting a seed for the future.

Chaoyan's husband finds the daily practice excessive, and indeed many Chinese people today criticize it as feudalistic, conservative, and counter-revolutionary. While Confucianism's primary purpose is to instill peace and harmony, the opposite occurs between Chaoyan and her husband as their beliefs clash and their arguments escalate, bringing forth a gripping portrait of marital and parental crisis.

"With great sensitivity, Confucian Dream presents the viewer with the specific outcome of a woman's conversion, but at its heart, it explores universal truths about relationships." - Chelsea Phillips-Carr, POV Magazine

A DARK ROOM HORROR SPECIAL!  ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE NOW BY CLICKING HERE!

Director John Carpenter and special makeup effects master Rob Bottin teamed up for this 1982 remake of the 1951 science fiction classic The Thing from Another World, and the result is a highly effective terror and spine-tingling suspense,plus a showcase for some of the goriest and most horrifically grotesque makeup effects ever created for a movie. With such highlights as a dog that splits open and blossoms into something indescribably gruesome, this is the kind of movie for die-hard horror fans.  It all begins when scientists at an arctic research station discover an alien spacecraft under the thick ice, and thaw out the alien body found aboard. What they don't know is that the alien can assume any human form, and before long the scientists can't tell who's real and who's a deadly alien threat. Kurt Russell leads the battle against the terrifying intruder, and the supporting cast includes Richard Masur, Richard Dysart, Donald Moffat, and Wilford Brimley.

"Feels like a perfect movie. An embarrassment of riches all concentrated in a single feature film that stands the test of time in a way that few stories do." - Ed Travis, Cinapse

"With its groundbreaking visual effects, terrific ensemble, and haunted-house atmosphere, is now rightfully regarded as an all-time horror classic." - Kirk Baird, Toledo Blade

"What really is there left to say about John Carpenter's The Thing? A true genre classic from 1982, the film is an all-time favourite of many and often cited as a sci-fi horror masterclass." - Andrew Pollard, Starburst
