From the producers of the Academy Award-nominated Persepolis and the mind of renowned graphic novelist Jacques Tardi comes a riveting sci-fi adventure set in an alternate steampunk universe.

Ten years later, April (voiced by Academy Award nominee Marion Cotillard) lives alone with her dear cat, Darwin, and carries on her family’s research in secret. But she soon finds herself at the center of a shadowy and far-reaching conspiracy, and on the run from government agents, bicycle-powered dirigibles and cyborg rat spies. Undaunted, she continues her quest to find her parents and discover the truth behind their disappearance.

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.

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.

1 hr 40 mins, rated R


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. Winner of the 2015 Sundance Grand Jury Prize.
