Eva Hesse (1936-1970) is one of America’s foremost postwar artists.  Her pioneering sculptures, using latex, fiberglass, and plastics, helped establish the post-minimalist movement. Dying of a brain tumor at age 34, she had a mere decade-long career that, despite its brevity, is dense with complex, intriguing works that defy easy categorization. EVA HESSE, the first feature-length appreciation of her life and work, makes superb use of the artist’s voluminous journals, her correspondence with close friend and mentor Sol LeWitt, and contemporary as well as archival interviews with fellow artists (among them, Richard Serra, Robert Mangold, Dan Graham) who recall her passionate, ambitious, tenacious personality. Art critic Arthur Danto has written that her work is: “full of life, of eros, even of comedy… Each piece vibrates with originality and mischief.” The documentary captures these qualities, but also the psychic struggles of an artist who, in the downtown New York art scene of the 1960s, was one of the few women to make work that was taken seriously in a field dominated by male pop artists and minimalists.  − Karen Cooper, Film Forum

1 hr 45 min


Struggling to come to peace with the unexpected death of her husband, an almost famous folk singer whose career and life were cut tragically short, Hannah lives a simple life far away from noise and chaos of the city. Both comforted and cursed by the closeness of her small town, Hannah struggles to fill the new void in her life by fixating on the seemingly impossible task of writing the biography of her lost husband – for herself and his fans.So when Andrew, a cocky New York writer, comes in to town to write a book of his own on her beloved, Hannah quickly runs him and his book out of her town. Andrew is not one to give up easily, and Hannah soon discovers his roughness and assertiveness as a welcome challenge and a surprising change from the smothering concern of her town, friends and family.

 

Filled with tears, laughter, love and music: Tumbledown is the story of a woman who must find the courage to let go of her past and the strength to move on to her future.

Harry and Snowman
Directed by Ron Davis
1 hr 24 mins, NR


HARRY & SNOWMAN is a feature length documentary that tells the remarkable life story of international show jumping legend Harry deLeyer, a Dutch immigrant whose career was launched by his famous show jumping horse Snowman.


Snowman was an old Amish plow horse that Harry rescued off a truck that was bound for the meat and glue factory for only $80. Less than two years after he rescued Snowman, they rose to become the national show jumping champions and were the Cinderella story and media darlings of late 1950s and 1960s.


The true heart of the film is not the remarkable rags-to-riches story of both Harry and Snowman, but the lasting and impactful relationship that is built between Harry, Snowman and the entire deLeyer family.


Very few horse stories have been able to truly touch the hearts of a nation. Red Pollard and Seabiscuit did in the 1930s, Harry deLeyer and Snowman did it in the 1950s and then Ron Turcotte and Secretariat were the last to do it in the 1970s.


HARRY & SNOWMAN is the first time that Harry's remarkable and heartfelt life story will be told by 86-year-old Harry himself.
