The Congressman is a film that understands the politics that’s dominated 2016 all too well. Treat Williams (Hair, Prince of the City) headlines a stellar cast as Maine Congressman Charlie Winship, who’s having a bad day. After being caught on video refusing to stand and recite the pledge of allegiance, he knocks out another House member,  confronts his angry ex-wife, and faces denunciation by the media for attacking one of the most cherished patriotic symbols in America. As his life spirals out of control, Charlie embarks on a journey to the remote Maine island whose eccentric inhabitants are in the middle of a shooting war in defense of their fishing grounds. Here is a home-grown yet world class, humorous and moving film with the smell of the Maine coast that raises the important question of what it means to be an American.

Inanna, Sisters in Rhythm, is an all-women’s percussion and vocal ensemble dedicated to cultural diversity, education, and healing through the universal language of music.  Blending western vocal harmonies with the polyrhythms of West Africa, the Middle East, and Brazil, they create a multicultural fusion beyond tradition.  Together for 25 years, the band has recorded six full-length albums; been invited to schools to teach drumming and culture to youth; and performed extensively.  Band members (Annegret Baier, Tori Morrill, and Shirsten Lundblad) have traveled throughout the world to study with master drummers.  Their teachers include Famoudou Konaté, Yaya Diallo, Layne Redmond, Glen Velez, and Babatunde Olatunji.  Through their own teaching, the members of Inanna seek not only to provide musical education, but also to cultivate vibrant community.  The band takes its name from the ancient Sumerian goddess Inanna, who was worshiped more than 4,000 years ago when it is believed that the drummers were predominantly women.

Enlgish
1 hr 26 mins

 

“This film is not for over-protective parents,” warns this Tim Burton-esque, absurd children’s comedy from first-time writer-directors, husband-wife team Ann-Marie Schmidt and Brian Schmidt.


When Jojo and his sister Avila are left to their own devices after a car accident injures their mother, they must survive in the woods on their own. Among the travails and harrowing experiences is a deranged hobo, ravaging wolves, abandoned couches, and dirty diapers.


But don’t fret for the little ones; they have a sharp pocketknife at the ready. The creative team behind this unique film refer to it as a “children’s film” and they couldn’t be more correct. THE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES OF JOJO (AND HIS ANNOYING SISTER AVILA) is pretty much every daydream every seven-year-old kid ever had. Ever. There’s adventure, danger, comedy, and Skittles. If you’re a parent, this film may make you squirm. But if you’re a child or a child at heart, Jojo and Avila will take you on the incredible journey you’ve been waiting for.

Born To Be Blue
Directed by Robert Budreau
Starring Ethan Hawke, Carmen Ejogo, Callum Keith Rennie
English
1 hr 38 mins, rated NR


Ethan Hawke lights up the screen as jazz legend Chet Baker, whose tumultuous life is thrillingly reimagined with wit, verve, and style to burn. In the 1950s, Baker was one of the most famous trumpeters in the world, renowned as both a pioneer of the West Coast jazz scene and an icon of cool. By the 1960s, he was all but washed up, his career and personal life in shambles due to years of heroin addiction. In his innovative anti-biopic, director Robert Budreau zeroes in on Baker’s life at a key moment in the 1960s, just as the musician attempts to stage a hard-fought comeback, spurred in part by a passionate romance with a new flame (Carmen Ejogo). Creatively blending fact with fiction and driven by Hawke’s virtuoso performance, Born to Be Blue unfolds with all the stylistic brio and improvisatory genius of great jazz.

2pm & 8pm - Romeo Is Bleeding
Directed by Jason Zeldes
English
93 min


A fatal turf war between neighborhoods haunts the city of Richmond, CA. Donté Clark transcends the violence in his hometown by writing poetry about his experiences. Using his voice to inspire those around him, he and the like-minded youth of the city mount an urban adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, with the hope of starting a real dialogue about violence in the city. Will Richmond force Donté to compromise his idealistic ambitions? Or will Donté end Richmond’s cycle of trauma?  Marvelously directed and edited by Jason Zeldes, Romeo Is Bleeding deals forcefully with the reality of finding a better way to live.

 

 

6pm - Omo Child: The River and the Bush
Directed by John Rowe
English/Other
90 min


For many generations, the Kara people of the Omo Valley (southwest Ethiopia) believed some “cursed” children bring disease, drought and death to the tribe. The curse is called “mingi.”  The tribal response is to kill the Mingi. One young, educated Kara man, Lale Labuko, decided he would challenge this horrific tradition. This is his story. Omo Child is the result of five years of filming. It follows Lale and the Kara tribe’s journey as they attempt to change an ancient practice.  Immensely powerful and an utterly redemptive story, Omo Child represents the dedication of its director, John Rowe, to bring an important issue to light.

Sound Bites returns for its second installment of monthly storytelling. This time around, the theme is "Chop". The night will feature the talents of Maine bluesman Samuel James, comedian Karen Morgan, Moth Vermont StorySlam producer Susanne Schmidt, and more TBA. We'll be pulling some choice moments from the Salt Story Archive to round out the evening as well.


A collaboration between the Salt Institute for Documentary studies at MECA, The Corner storytelling series in Lewiston, and Frontier, Sound Bites is a new kind of storytelling series. With a dedicated theme tying each Bite together, the night will feature regional Moth StorySlam Champions, locals sharing true tales, and audio and media pulled from the 43 years of Maine history in the Salt Archive.


Samuel James was born the last in a long line of performers including dancers, story tellers, choir singers, jazz pianists, and porch-stomping guitar thumpers dating back to the 1800s. His songwriting has been compared to Leonard Cohen's and his guitar skills to those of Jimi Hendrix. His critically acclaimed trilogy of albums, Songs Famed for Sorrow and Joy (2008) For Rosa, Maeve and Noreen (2009) And for the Dark Road Ahead (2012) for Toronto's Northern Blues label has gained Samuel praise not only for carrying on great traditions, but for being a true innovator.


Karen Morgan was born and raised in Athens, Georgia but now calls Maine home. A former trial attorney, she began her professional comedy career as a Finalist on Nickelodeon Televison’s “Search for the Funniest Mom in America.” Since then, she has performed in comedy clubs from Caroline’s in New York to the Improv in Las Vegas to the Comedy & Magic Club in California. Her comedy can be heard on Sirius XM Radio and nationally syndicated radio shows.


In 2015, Susanne Schmidt was named New England Public Radio's - Valley Voices Story Slam "Best Storyteller", was the First Place and Audience Favorite at Extempo Vermont's Tournament of Champions "Tell Off" and a Moth Story Slam winner. Susanne is currently a host and the regional producer for The Moth in Vermont. Susanne has been selected to perform in The Boston Women in Comedy Festival, The SheDot Toronto Comedy Festival, Arctic Entries Alaska and The Green Mountain Comedy Festival. Susanne teaches storytelling at the Flynn Theater.


Sound Bites is made possible by generous contributions from Allagash Brewing Company and Toad & Co.

Presentation
Puccini’s fifth opera, Tosca marks an important transition in Puccini’s work. His previous opera, La Bohème, considered by many to be his first masterpiece, is at the same time, the last of Puccini’s work portray the struggles and dreams of society’s lower classes.


With Tosca, Puccini returns to the purest tragedy, focusing on the violent and tragic downfall of three historic figures. Tosca is a highly focused opera, concentrated around the complex and fully developed psychologies of its three main characters. Inspired by the riveting performance of Sarah Bernhardt in the play by Victorien Sardou, Puccini artfully crafted the jealousy, turmoil and despair of the entrancing Floria Tosca. After a period of tormented and stormy writing with his librettists, Puccini finalized his composition just days before the opera’s premiere on January 14, 1900 at Teatro Constanzi in Rome.


Paolo Arrivabeni, musical director of the Royal Opera of Wallonie-Liège conducts this new production directed by Claire Servais.

Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds. It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor. But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage. Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down.

Sassquatch is the missing link between funk, fusion, jazz, rock and pop. With the massive support of their fans, and their dedication to the music they love, the group has been fortunate enough to perform at venues across the state, at the WCYY stage of the Old Port Festival, and has been able to fund their first full length album "Cryptomusicology". Fronted by the dynamic vocal work of Christine McCormick and Jared Wilkinson, dominated by the technical guitar proficiency of Matthew Knight and Bryant Sirois, and the rhythmic precision of bassist Dan Gilbert and drummer Cameron Lopez, Sassquatch works diligently to make believers out of their audience. Have you seen Sassquatch?


“They have achieved that rare perfect balance of danceable grooves, sophisticated musicality, and compelling stage presence." - Richard Nelson Professor of Music, Jazz and Contemporary Music Program, University of Maine at Augusta
