BARDO, FALSE CHRONICLE OF A HANDFUL OF TRUTHS

Nov 25 to Dec 1
Friday thru Thursday 7:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu - 2022 - 160m - Mexico - In Spanish with English subtitles

Five-time Academy Award winner Alejandro G. Inarritu brings us an epic, visually stunning and immersive experience set against the intimate and moving journey of Silverio, a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles, who, after being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, is compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit. The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder. With both emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, the history of Mexico and the deeply emotional familial bonds he shares with his wife and children. Indeed, what it means to be human in these very peculiar times.

"More startlingly poetic images than any half-dozen recent blockbusters." - Kyle Smith, Wall Street Journal

It’s impossible to deny the strength of the startling array of thoughts and concepts which Inarritu has brought to life and, ultimately, brings together." - Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International

"Absolutely worth your time. Beautiful." - Marc Burrows, HeyUGuys

YOU RESEMBLE ME

Nov 25 to Dec 1
Friday thru Thursday 3:15, 5:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Dina Amer - 2022 - 90m - U.S, France, Egypt - In Arabic & English with English Subtitles

Who was Hasna Aït Boulahcen? After the November 2015 Paris bombings, she was labelled “Europe’s first female suicide bomber.” Journalists swarmed around her story, trying to extract details about the mysterious young woman who lived on the outskirts of Paris. In this drama, executive-produced by Spike Lee, Spike Jonze, Riz Ahmed and Alma Har’el, director Dina Amer pieces together Hasna’s story from over 300 hours of interviews, from a little girl protecting her younger sister from an abusive home to a young woman who finds herself trying her best to survive on the streets. This nuanced drama shows what happens when society fails to protect a child, and how discrimination, poverty, and abuse facing young people can allow radicalisation to plant roots and grow, with devastating impact on the wider community.

"It’s not often that Human Rights Watch sends a narrative feature our way, but when they do it’s a moment worth cherishing." -Scott Marks, San Diego Reader

"This inspired-by-true-life story of crumbling identity and radicalisation is a powerful cry from the heart." - Philip De Semlyen, Time Out

"A gripping and painful story of dislocation and belonging." - Lovia Gyarkye Hollywood Reporter

"The film is an artful mix of documentary and moving backstory that reclaims Hasna's humanity as it reveals how trauma can destroy a young soul and spirit." - Loren King

"A powerful and creatively structured story with a lot to say." - Evan Dossey, Midwest Film Journal

"Terrorists aren’t born. They’re made. But how? The fascinating drama You Resemble Me has some ideas." - Stephen Whitty Film Racket

"Many reviewers may mischaracterize this fine piece of filmmaking as a pseudo-documentary about the making of a terrorist. Nothing could be further from the truth." - Michael SzymanskiMovie Reviews and More

"Dina Amer’s dramatisation is a character portrait (beyond tabloid caricature) of an alienated Muslim woman in the Parisian projects." - Anton Bitel, Projected Figures

"Amer potently immerses the audience in the dysfunctional family’s dislocated lives in a poor neighborhood outside Paris, where Hasna’s childhood separations left her vulnerable to radicalization." - Nora Lee Mandel, FF2 Media

It's a risky film but a compassionate one, and Amer's blending of fact and fiction redefines the parameters of the visual medium." - Rahul Desai, Film Companion

"A thoughtful, powerful examination of the deep roots of radicalisation. A film which stares its subjects right in the eyes, and does not look away." - Zehra Phelan, HeyUGuys

"A challenging film that tests the limits of empathy, but one whose lessons are ignored at our own peril." - Joe Blessing, The Playlist
