Wild Tales
Directed by Damián Szifrón
Starring Darío Grandinetti, María Marull, Mónica Villa
Spanish with English subtitles
2 hrs 2 mins, rated R

Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people.
Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism. A lover’s betrayal, a return to the repressed past and the violence woven into everyday encounters drive the characters to madness as they cede to the undeniable pleasure of losing control.

TOM PORTER AND FRIENDS
You may know Tom Porter as the English voice on Maine public radio, but he will not be appearing at Frontier in his capacity as a news broadcaster. Tom will be here to indulge his passion for playing Jazz. A former professional jazz pianist in his native UK Tom has played with some of the top recording artists on both sides of the pond. He'll be joined by a superb collection of Maine-based musicians: Musical educator Frank Mauceri on saxophone. On bass is the hugely talented and experienced Sam Sherry (and he's not as old as that makes him sound!).  Percussive accompaniment is provided by the subtle and creative drumming of Mark Barnette. They'll be performing a mixture of a old and new music, including some original material and several much-loved standards.

For 19-year-old Jay (Monroe), the fall should be about school, boys and weekends at the lake. Yet, after a seemingly innocent sexual encounter she suddenly finds herself plagued by nightmarish visions; she can’t shake the sensation that someone, or something, is following her. As the threat closes in, Jay and her friends must somehow escape the horrors that are only a few steps behind. With a riveting central performance from Monroe and a strikingly ominous electronic score by Disasterpeace, IT FOLLOWS took the 2014 Cannes Film Festival by storm.

RJ MILLER
"Electronic music comes in all sounds, colors, and textures, but drummer RJ Miller exploits the ambient side with chilled themes and moody soundscapes. The soul in the machine lies in the way Miller expertly juxtaposes his drum kit with piano, keyboards, and analog synthesizers through infectious melodies that move and groove."  (Mark F. Turner, All About Jazz)

Director: Benjamin Statler.
Runtime: 90 mins
Not Rated

Reveals the events behind Kurt Cobain’s death as seen through the eyes of Tom Grant, the private investigator that was hired by Courtney Love in 1994 to track down her missing husband (Kurt Cobain) only days before his deceased body was found at their Seattle home. Cobain’s death was ruled a suicide by the police (a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound), but doubts have circulated for twenty years as to the legitimacy of this ruling, especially due to the work of Mr. Grant, a former L.A. County Sheriff’s detective, who did his own investigation and determined there was significant empirical and circumstantial evidence to conclude that foul play could very well have occurred. The film develops as a narrative mystery with cinematic re-creations, interviews with key experts and witnesses and the examination of official artifacts from the 1994 case.

Seymour: An Introduction
Directed by Ethan Hawke
English
1 hr 21 mins, rated PG

SEYMOUR: AN INTRODUCTION is a glorious portrait of one of the most unlikely but truly magnetic characters ever to grace the screen – 86 year-old pianist Seymour Bernstein (whom Hawke first met at a dinner party, when Bernstein counseled him through a bout of stage fright). 

Seymour Bernstein started playing the piano as a little boy, and by the time he turned fifteen, he was teaching it to others. He enjoyed a long and illustrious career as a performer before he gave it up to devote himself to helping others develop their own gifts. While Ethan Hawke’s gentle, meditative study is a warm and lucid portrait of Bernstein and his exceptional life and work, it’s also a love letter to the study of music itself, and a film about the patience, concentration, and devotion that are fundamental to the practice of art. SEYMOUR: AN INTRODUCTION allows us to spend time with a generous human being who has found balance and harmony through his love of music.

Brazilian Choro has been around for over a hundred years, but in this country itʼs virtually unknown. David Grisman, Mike Marshall and a handful of others have helped introduce the music and the musicians to a larger audience, but itʼs still largely under the radar of most music listeners...Its beautiful melodies, complex harmonies, and syncopated rhythms combine elements of European folk and classical, ragtime, jazz, Latin, and African music creating a style that is uniquely Brazilian.


Based in Portland, Maine, Choro Louco are driven by their love of the music. They play monthly at Portlandʼs eclectic club Blue, and have appeared at Acoustic Artisans and Mayo Street Arts.


Members of Choro Louco come from diverse backgrounds and can be seen in various ensembles locally. Carl Dimow, flute and guitar, has played jazz, classical, and klezmer music here and abroad with the Casco Bay Tummlers, and numerous other ensembles. Nicole Rabata, flute, plays primarily celtic, classical and contemporary classical styles. Joel Eckhaus comes from an old time/jazz/pop/vaudeville background and has applied his knowledge of the ukulele to the Cavaquinho, Brazilʼs version of the uke. Kris Day plays with various bluegrass, rockabilly, and jazz bands in Portland. Eric LaPerna is best known for his percussion work with the middle eastern ensemble, Okbari, but has proven equally adept at Brazilʼs version of the tambourine, the pandeiro.
