A CONVERSATION WITH CHRISTOPHER NOLAN (Conversations/Talks)
120 mins.

Join Christopher Nolan for a screening of Alan Parker's Pink Floyd the Wall followed by a conversation with Elvis Mitchell discussing the film's influence on Nolan's filmmaking.

PINK FLOYD THE WALL (1982)
Dir. Alan Parker
England, 95 mins., Steve Seid, Pacific Film Archive

DIRECTOR: Alan Parker
WRITER: Roger Waters
PRODUCER: Alan Marshall
CAST: Bob Geldof, Bob Hoskins, Christine Hargreaves, Eleanor David

During a late-seventies Pink Floyd tour, band brainiac Roger Waters felt a brick wall rise between him and the audience—an implacable image of alienation. But when life gives you bricks, make bricolage. Combining an ensemble of twenty-six angst-ridden songs, the breakdown of former PFer Syd Barrett, the disquieting animation of Gerald Scarfe, Bob Geldof’s droll portrayal of burned-out rocker Pink, a short story by Sartre, an d the pop sensibility of director Alan Parker, this illustrated LP comes across as a masterful hallucination of one man’s dread of abandonment.

DISCO & ATOMIC WAR
(DISKO JA TUUMASODA)
Dir. Jaak Kilmi & Kiur Aarma
Estonia/Finland. 85min.

Producers: Aleksi Bardy, Annika Sucksdorff, Helsinki Filmi, Kiur Aarma
Screenwriters: Jaak Kilmi, Kiur Aarma
Cinematographers: Manfred Vainokivi, Kristjan Svirgsden, Asko Kase Editor: Lauri Laasik
Cast: Gerda Viira, Oskar Vuks, Toomas Pool, Jaan-Joosep Puusaag, Einar Kotka, Aleksandr Aug, Birgit Veemaa, Katrin Roosipuu

For young Estonians growing up under the repressive thumb of Soviet ideology, the only images of the West they saw came in the form of pirated television signals from powerful transmitters in Finland. But the impact of these images was life-changing. Once Estonians beheld Dallas, disco dancing, and Knight Rider, not to mention supermarkets full of goods unavailable to them, there was no turning back.

Spanning the mid-1950s to the fall of Communism, the wild and original Disco & Atomic War offers a provocative and playful counter-history of the Cold War. It documents the increasingly paranoid efforts of the Estonian puppet government to block these subversive transmissions and the ever more imaginative ways the citizens found to get around the blockades. Director Jaak Kilmi mixes rich archival footage with droll recreations that show us a nation more obsessed with “Who killed J.R.?’’ than Communist doctrine. Tongue in impassioned cheek, this mile-a-minute documentary vividly demonstrates how the “soft power” of pop culture toppled a totalitarian regime.

“He’s a food blogger,” Peter Grey spits the words out with disdain. A few hours ago, Grey was a chef with a television show, a restaurant, and an endorsement deal for a line of cookware. Now, one overly snarky online review later, he’s got nothing. The show is on the verge of being cancelled, his kitchen is in the hands of another chef, and the cookware… Forget it. Convinced his woes are entirely the fault of the bad review—and not because he is an uncharismatic, pompous creep—Grey kidnaps the blogger and exacts brutal culinary comeuppance. Revenge, it seems, is a dish best served to order—raw and bloody.

The latest offering from producer Larry Fessenden’s stable of low budget shockers, Joe Maggio’s darkly comic thriller casts a caustic eye on bloggers and foodies alike, as it takes the sometimes contentious relationship between critics and the critiqued to some outrageously extreme lengths. Starting with a first act entrée of wicked humor, but growing darker with each new course, Bitter Feast is guaranteed not to go down easy.

THE HOUSE OF THE ANGEL (1957)(LA CASA DEL ANGEL) - SPANISH W/ ENGLISH SUBTITLES
Dir. Leopoldo Torre Nilsson
Argentina, 75 min., UCLA Latin American Institute

Producer: Leopoldo Torre Nilsson
Screenwriters: Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, Beatriz Guido, Martin Rodríguez Mentasti
Cinematographer: Aníbal Gonzalez Paz
Editor: Jorge Garate
Cast: Elsa Daniel, Lautaro Murúa, Guillermo Battaglia, Bárbara Mujica, Berta Ortegosa


Shown at the 1957 Cannes Film Festival, this is the movie that made Leopoldo Torre Nilsson an international art house star. Based on a novel by his wife and usual screenwriter, Beatriz Guido, The House of the Angel focuses on the ruling class in 1920s Argentina, a deeply repressive society where political arguments were often settled in a duel and young women—such as the cloistered teenaged Ana, played by Elsa Daniel—were expected to be totally ignorant of sex.

With dark expressionistic camera angles that have been compared to Orson Welles' and dissonant blasts of music, Torre Nilsson unfolds the story of young Ana, suffocating under her mother’s fanatically enforced purity. Her fall from grace comes at the hands of a dashing politician—a friend of her father’s—who visits the family’s imposing home in the suburbs of Buenos Aires. (Architecture plays a crucial role in the director’s films.) Appropriately, when it was first released in the U.S., this striking story of political hypocrisy, sexual discovery, and Catholic guilt was re-titled End of Innocence.

THE FALL (LA CAIDA) - in Spanish w/ English Subtitles
Dir. Leopoldo Torre Nilsson
Argentina, 1959, 84 mins, 35mm

Producer: Leopoldo Torre Nilsson
Screenwriters: Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, Beatriz Guido
Cinematographer: Alberto Etchebehere
Editor: Jorge Garate
Cast: Elsa Daniel, Lautaro Murúa, Duilio Marzio

Albertina—played by Elsa Daniel, very much Leopoldo Torre Nilsson’s muse at this time—comes to Buenos Aires from the countryside to study at university. Looking for a cheap place to live, she stumbles upon an odd old house where it seems four children pretty much run their own lives. Their asthmatic mother, holed up in an isolated bedroom, hardly seems there—and then, one day, she isn’t.

The gothic strains that course through the Beatriz Guido novel on which this film is based are here fully realized, as the house itself becomes an increasingly dominating presence for all the characters. The struggle between the forces of reason, such as the world of the university, where Albertina goes each day, and darker, more hidden spirits, always a predominant theme in Torre Nilsson’s work, was perhaps never more powerfully elaborated than in The Fall. The film also exemplifies the director’s expressionist visual style, which he once attributed to his extreme myopia, which, he said, “gives birth to a deformed and haunting world.”

Screenwriter: Masashi Todayama
Cinematographer: Akira Sako
Editor: Takuya Taguchi
Cast: Yusuke Santamaria, Manami Konishi, Tortoise Matsumoto, Kyoka Suzuki, Takeshi Masu, Jin Katagiri

UDON is a high-spirited comic ode to the power of Japan’s ubiquitous noodle. After failing to make it as a stand-up comedian, a young man drags himself home to Kagawa Prefecture, where his father owns a small udon factory. When an article he writes for a local magazine sets off a nationwide udon craze, he learns there’s more to the simple noodle, and the people who make them, than he ever expected.

JALSAGHAR (THE MUSIC ROOM) - in Bengali w/ English Subtitles

India, 1958, 100 mins

Producer: Satyajit Ray
Screenwriter: Satyajit Ray
Cinematographer: Subrata Mitra
Editor: Dulal Dutta
Cast: Chhabi Biswas, Padma Devi, Pinaki Sengupta
Music: Ustad Vilayat Khan, Asis Kumar, Robin Majumder, Dakhin Mohan Takhur

This stunning film by director Satyajit Ray is based on a novel by the Bengali writer Tarashankar Banerjee about a turn-of-the-century aristocrat named Biswambhar Roy whose wealth is dwindling, yet he continues to spend money on lavish concerts in his music room. His existence may be threatened, but his vision of perfection, embodied in the hypnotic musical sequences, will not be denied.

Many of Ray’s films have a rueful, Chekhovian tone of ironically tinged regret, a mood that is crystallized in The Music Room, one of the greatest films in the history of Indian cinema. When the Academy Film Archive restored Ray’s film, it had to work with extremely compromised and damaged materials—the finished product is something close to a miracle.

THE RED CHAPEL (Det Røde Kapel) - in Danish w/ English Subtitles
Dir. Mads Brugger
Denmark, 2009, 87 mins. HDCam

Executive Producers: Mette Hoffmann Meyer, Peter Aalbæk Jensen
Producer: Peter Engel
Cinematographer: René Johannsen
Editor: René Johannsen
Cast: Simon Jul Jørgensen, Jacob Nossell

Intending to expose the horrors of North Korea, director-trickster Mads Brügger and two Danish-Korean comedians infiltrate Kim Jong Il’s totalitarian nation under the guise of a cultural exchange program. The result is the mind-bogglingly bizarre documentary The Red Chapel.

For starters, the comedy duo—chubby Simon and wheelchair-bound, self-described “spastic” Jacob—are thunderously (and deliberately) unfunny. Knowing that their every move—and all their footage—is being scrutinized by their nonplussed but ever polite hosts, Brügger and his dissembling duo must tread carefully and duplicitously. When their charade triggers a crisis of conscience in the handicapped Jacob, who has grown fond of their official “handler,” the robotically patriotic Ms. Pak, he has to be reminded of some troubling realities in this grim nation, where any problems, be they social, economical, or—most pointedly for Jacob—physical, seem to simply, chillingly not exist.

Watching The Red Chapel is a deeply unsettling, hilarious, and unique experience. It truly must be seen to be believed, and as anyone who has seen it can attest, you won’t be able to stop talking about it.

UTOPIA IN FOUR MOVEMENTS
Dir. Sam Green & Dave Cerf
USA, 2010, 75 mins

Producers: Sam Green, Carrie Lozano, Jasmine Dellal
Cinematographer: Andy Black
Editors: Sam Green, Dave Cerf
Music: Dave Cerf, Matt McCormick, Tarentel, Todd Griffin, Catherine McCrae, Dennis Cronin

There is a certain sadness to learning that “utopia”—a word that most of us associate with a place of perfection and true happiness—stems from the Greek “ou-topos,” or, literally translated, “no place.” So by their very definition, utopias are unobtainable, but that doesn’t mean mankind has ever stopped trying to achieve them, as demonstrated in this wryly humorous, utterly unique cinematic experience.

Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Sam Green and sound artist Dave Cerf have combined forces to create Utopia in Four Movements, a “live documentary” that is never exactly the same twice. While Cerf and the Brooklyn-based band the Quavers provide an evocative soundscape, Green narrates the eclectic history of man’s quest for his ideals, touching on efforts as varied as the creation of Esperanto to the construction of the world’s largest shopping mall, while musing hopefully about what lies ahead. Green is a natural storyteller, and his performance, along with that of the band’s, lends an electrical charge to these proceedings, making for a scintillating evening of film, music, and—most importantly—community.

Producers: Brendan McFadden, Jay Van Hoy, Lars Knudsen, Ben Stambler
Screenwriter: Aaron Katz
Cinematographer: Andrew Reed
Editor: Aaron Katz
Cast: Cris Lankenau, Trieste Kelly Dunn, Raúl Castillo, Robyn Rikoon
Music: Keegan DeWitt

A self-styled Sherlock Holmes leads an unlikely team of irregulars in this charming comic mystery from indie auteur Aaron Katz.

After abandoning a promising academic career in forensic science, aimless Doug returns to Portland to live with his more responsible big sister Gail. He quickly lands a dead-end job in an ice factory, but his latent passion for detective work is stoked when his ex-girlfriend goes missing. Armed with a handful of arcane clues, Doug enlists Gail and co-worker Carlos in a ramshackle investigation that draws the slacker sleuths into Portland’s not-quite-seedy underground.

Building on the lyrical style and naturalistic performances of his two previous features, Dance Party USA and Quiet City, Katz offers a refreshingly idiosyncratic spin on genre conventions. He eschews the twisty plots and violence of modern neo-noir in favor of sly, deadpan humor and closely-observed performances. Cold Weather may feature a few car chases and stake outs, but ultimately it is less interested in the chilly mechanics of genre than in the warm bond between friends and family.

THE LIFE OF RICHARD WAGNER
Dir. Carl Froelich
Germany, 1913, 70 mins, DVD

Producer: Oskar Messter
Screenwriter: William Wauer? Reg form said NOT KNOWN
Cast: Guiseppe Becce

Originally distributed in 1913 to mark the hundredth anniversary of Richard Wagner’s birth, The Life of Richard Wagner is an extraordinarily complex, detailed, and sophisticated film. One of the earliest—if not the very earliest—feature-length biopic ever produced, the film brings together the talents of three extraordinary men: producer Oskar Messter (widely considered the father of the German film industry), director Carl Froelich, and composer Giuseppe Becce, who originally was just going to compose the score for the film, but soon found himself playing the role of Wagner as well. A highly ambitious production for its time, the film recounts the life story of the great composer from his childhood, through his tempestuous romances and his friendship with Ludwig of Bavaria, to the creative summit of his later career, Parsifal and the Ring cycle.

The Life of Richard Wagner has been digitally restored with a contemporary orchestral score by the British composer Barry Seaman and new English-language titles prepared by HansJorg Schmidt and Paul Fryer, who will be on-hand to discuss the film and his work on its restoration.

Screenwriters: Leopoldo Torre Nilsson, Beatriz Guido, Ricardo Muñoz Suay, Ricardo Luna
Cinematographer: Alberto Etchebehere
Editor: Jacinto Cascales
Cast: Francisco Rabal, Elsa Daniel, Leonardo Favio, María Rosa Gallo, Hilda Suárez
Music: Atilio Stampone

According to St. Augustine, he who puts his hand in the trap must carry the trap around with him forever, and Leopoldo Torre Nilsson’s film is an extraordinary meditation on that idea.

Home for the summer, Laura, played by Elsa Daniel, decides the time has come for her to unravel her family’s dark shameful secret—the supposed presence, shuttered away in the attic, of a retarded dwarf born of one of her late father’s amorous liaisons. Her partner in this endeavor is Miguel, a local stud with whom she’s been flirting for sometime. Together, the two discover that the path to solve the mystery lies in the person of Cristobal Achaval, the forty-ish, drag racing scion of the town’s richest family, who years before had jilted Laura’s Aunt Inés, now said to be living happily in Alcatraz, USA.

Widely considered to be Torre Nilsson’s masterpiece and winner of the International Critics Prize in Cannes in 1961, The Hand in the Trap is a perfect example of the director’s unique blend of critical social vision and baroque visual imagination.

THE SEVEN MADMEN (LOS SIETE LOCOS) - in Spanish w/ English Subtitles

Cinematographer: Aníbal di Salvo
Editors: Antonio Ripoll, Armando Blanco
Cast: Alfredo Alcón, Norma Aleandro, Héctor Alterio, Thelma Biral, Sergio Renán, José Slavin, Leonor Manso
Music: Mariano Etkin

Argentine writer Roberto Arlt, whose novels were first published in the 1920s and '30s, was rediscovered by the “boom” generation of Latin American writers such as Gabriel García Márquez forty years later, and Leopoldo Torre Nilsson’s effective adaptation of his most famous novel is an ode to Arlt’s subversive qualities.

As played by Alfredo Alcón, Erdosian is a weak, largely defeated man. Searching for something that will give his existence meaning, Erdosain thinks he’s found the answer in the ravings of a pseudo-astrologer whose reading of the stars tells him that the imminent destruction of society as we know it is at hand. As Erdosain is increasingly drawn into the astrologer's unsettling circle—a kind of curious terrorist underground of deadbeats and fantasists—Arlt describes the Buenos Aires of the Twenties as a haven (and terminus) for the world’s malcontents. Torre Nilsson updates the idea to present instead a portrait of a society unmoored, one that’s lost any sense of direction. Argentina in the Seventies‾

Fleeing her mom's creepy fiancé and the suffocating boredom of Florida in the summer, teenage Chrissy enlists best friend June to help find her estranged father. The Wolf Knife follows the girls on a digressive road trip to Nashville, encountering dirty old men and kitschy tourist attractions along the way.

Laurel Nakadate's striking low-budget feature detours from road movie conventions, focusing instead on the girls' conflicted relationship-- their awkward conversational rhythms and suppressed erotic gestures. Through the expressive use of color, cockeyed compositions and a provocatively voyeuristic style, Nakadate charts an interior journey fraught with sexual mystery and danger.

HICKEY & BOGGS

Producer: Fouad Said
Screenwriter: Walter Hill
Cinematographer: Wilmer Butler
Editor: David Berlatsky
Cast: Robert Culp, Bill Cosby, Ta-Ronce Allen, Rosalind Cash, Carmen, Louis Moreno, Michael Moriarty
Music: Ted Ashford

In the late Robert Culp’s taut, cynical detective thriller, Culp and Bill Cosby subvert their iconic I Spy personas, trading in their hip globetrotting secret agents for downtrodden private eyes on the sun-bleached mean streets of early '70s Los Angeles. The iconoclastic film portrays the pair as anti-heros, short on cash and opportunities, estranged from their wives and languishing in inactivity (or irrelevance‾) until they score a missing persons case that puts them back on the street and in harm’s way. Before long they’re squaring off with gun-toting heavies of every kind as the plot plunges them deeper into trouble and further out of their league. Wherever they go, they leave violence in their wake.

Hickey & Boggs stands as one of the most alarming and rewarding examples of its genre. Culp’s assured direction brings Walter Hill’s dystopic, neo-noir screenplay vividly to life. Widely admired but rarely seen, the film offers little reassurance about human nature, pitting the weary detectives against their prey in a deadly, morally ambiguous confrontation.

In the not so distant past, media outlets gathered excitedly every time the U.S. or Soviet Union launched a flight into space. Today, space flights only receive secondary coverage, leaving many to wonder what happened to the promise that space travel once held. Christian Frei’s dream-like documentary Space Tourists addresses this question as he transports us to the rarely-glimpsed world of Russia’s Baikonur Cosmodrome. With its crumbling edifices, abandoned housing projects, and timeworn artworks, the once-great Baikonur is only a shadow of its former self. With the high price tag of space flight, space tourism—priced at $20 million per journey—has become the only way for Russia to fund their space program.

Examining both the idealism and the reality behind space exploration today, Frei’s documentary launches us into space with the first woman space tourist, an Iranian-American Texas millionaire, while on the ground a motley crew of “space junk” collectors make their living off what comes tumbling to earth.

CAST: Anthony Mackie, Kerry Washington, Jamie Hector, Wendell Pierce, Tariq Trotter, Amari Cheatom, Jamara Griffin, Ron Simons

Tanya Hamilton’s ambitious, explosive debut feature stars the always compelling Anthony Mackie as Marcus, an exiled Black Panther returning home to deal with old wounds, an old love, and the tattered legacy of the Panthers. With the police still watching him and former friends turning their back on him, the only one Marcus can turn to is Patricia, beautifully played by Kerry Washington, an idealistic lawyer and the widow of Marcus’ best friend, whose death at the hands of police has long been laid at Marcus’ feet by the neighborhood.

Bathed in the golden light of a 1976 Philadelphia summer, Night Catches Us portrays a community still coming to terms with the racial and political battles of the '60s. In this charged atmosphere, political actions and personal beliefs are inseparable, both finding finely nuanced expression in Hamilton’s rich characterizations, not just of Marcus and Patricia, but in others as well, such as the volatile teen who wants to emulate the Black Panther’s gun-toting swagger or a 10-year-old girl who doesn’t yet know what future to dream of.

Unfolding in an unnamed African country, the riveting White Material follows Maria, played with a steely resolve by Isabelle Hubbert, who is determined to keep her father’s coffee plantation together, even as the country around her descends into civil war. Despite numerous warnings from the exiting French Army, Maria refuses to abandon the familial estate, a decision that will have dire consequences for those around her.

Born in Paris but raised in colonial Africa, Claire Denis has returned to her adoptive homeland throughout her career. Her 1987 debut film, Chocolat, is set there, as is her mid-career masterpiece Beau Travail and now her latest, White Material. While those three films all share distinctly Denis touches—her attention to small, telling details, a tactile sense of place—White Material, the most narrative-driven film she has ever made, actually has the closest kinship to, surprisingly, her most enigmatic—2005’s The Intruder. Resplendent with images as beautiful as they are foreboding, both films possess a heightened sense of movement and pacing, each relentlessly rushing towards their inescapable climaxes.

EASTERN PLAYS - in Bulgarian, Turkish, and English w/ English subtitles

Bulgaria, Sweden, 2009, 89 mins, 35mm

Executive Producer: Maya Vitkova
Producers: Kamen Kalev, Stefan Piryov, Fredrik Zander
Screenwriter: Kamen Kalev
Cinematographer: Julian Atanassov
Editors: Kamen Kalev, Stefan Piryov, Johannes Pinter
Cast: Christo Christov, Ovanes Torosian, Saadet Isil Aksoy, Nikolina Yancheva

The unexpectedly moving Bulgarian drama Eastern Plays charts the course of two estranged brothers living in Sofia whose destinies are altered one fateful night. Failed artist Itso struggles with a crippling drug addiction, while his directionless younger brother Georgi has recently joined a neo-Nazi gang as a sanctuary from the drudgery of his home life. Their separate worlds collide one evening when Itso encounters Georgi and his gang attacking a Turkish family in the street. Itso comes to the aid of the family, which puts him into contact with their beautiful daughter Isil.

Inspired by the troubled life of his lead actor and friend Christo Christov, writer-director Kamen Kalev focuses on Itso’s unlikely, uncertain path to love and redemption. Featured as part of Cannes’ 2009 Directors’ Fortnight, Eastern Plays is as unvarnished as Itso, but like its main character it contains surprising depth as well. Tragically, Christov never got to see his lacerating performance, dying just days after finishing his scenes, which adds another level of poignancy to a story about second chances and missed opportunities.

Executive Producer: Frazer Pennebaker
Producers: Flora Lazar, Frazer Pennebaker
Cinematographers: D.A. Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus
Editors: D.A. Pennebaker, Chris Hegedus

Sixteen of the France’s top pastry chefs compete for the ultimate accolade—the collar of the Meilleurs Ouvriers de France—in this mouth-watering film from esteemed documentarians D.A. Pennebacker and Chris Hegedus. Taking place every four years, the M.O.F. trials have candidates concoct over 40 different recipes over the course of three days in a race against the clock. Working side by side in an immaculate Lyons test kitchen, chefs produce everything from perfect cream puffs to immense and immensely fragile sugar sculptures, all under the scrutiny of judges who rate them for taste and artistry, as well as the neatness of their workstation.

Among this year’s hopefuls are Jecquy Pfeiffer, one of the founders of The French Pastry School in Chicago, and Luxembourg baker Regis Lazard, a second time finalist whose first trial ended in catastrophe when his sugar sculpture broke into bits. From Valence, there’s the highly talented Philippe Rigollot, pastry chef from the three-Michelin-starred Maison Pic, feeling the pressure to live up to his reputation as he and his fellow chefs strive for elusive but delicious perfection.

Producers: Jennifer Arnold, Patti Lee, Jeffrey Soros
Screenwriter: Jennifer Arnold
Cinematographer: Patti Lee
Editors: Carl Pfirman, Tyler Hubby
Cast: Chris Mburu, Patrick Kimani, Jane Wanjiru Muigai, Hilde Back

Decades ago, Hilde Back, a gray-haired Holocaust survivor, began sending $15 a month from Sweden to Kenya to fund a child's primary school education. To her, that amount felt inconsequential but for Chris Mburu, it changed his life. When no other Kenyan family could afford to send their children to high school, Mburu went, and that was enough to springboard him to Harvard. Now a U.N. human rights lawyer, he's founded a new scholarship fund for the next generation of smart kids with few options. And he's named it for the benefactor he never met. Until now.

Jennifer Arnold's colorful and moving documentary weaves Back and Mburu’s intertwined stories with the current plight of three Kenyan eighth graders desperate to be their village’s next success story. Their shot at a bright future come courtesy of the Hilde Back Education Fund and the generosity of a distant benefactor. As the elderly Hilde visits the village in which she sowed hope, sighing, ""I'm simply not used to being a hero,"" we're inspired to witness firsthand that one person, without a doubt, can make a difference.

FAREWELL
Dir. Ditteke Mensink
Netherlands, 2009, 90 mins, DigiBeta (NTSC)

Producer: Pieter van Huijstee
Screenwriter: Ditteke Mensink
Editor: Jessica de Koning
Cast: Narrated by Poppy Elliott

In 1929, celebrated journalist Lady Grace Drummond-Hay was invited to take part in the first round-the-world flight of a commercial airship, the LZ-127 Graf Zeppelin. Recently widowed from a man 50 years her senior and bored to tears with covering ladies fashion, Lady Grace leaped at the chance to be the only woman onboard one of the media sensations of the decade. At journey’s end she returned to America a star, thanks to her good looks and gutsy charm. But her reports on the ship’s travels for the front pages of the Hearst press empire only told part of the story. In her diary she recorded a far more intimate journey—her struggle to get over her secret affair with shipmate, mentor, and married man Karl von Wiegand.

Combining spectacular archival footage of the journey across New York, Siberia, Tokyo, and the Pacific with narration drawn from Drummond’s articles and her private journals, this sweeping black and white documentary stands as a vision of technological marvels and global hope in that narrow window between world wars when everything seemed possible except true love.

Screenwriters: Yoshihiro Nakamura, Tamio Hayashi, Kenichi Suzuki
Cinematographer: Takashi Komatsu
Editor: Hirohide Abe
Cast: Masato Sakai, Yuko Takeuchi, Hidetaka Yoshioka, Gekidan Hitori, Teruyuki Kagawa

In Yoshihiro Nakamura’s seriocomic thriller, when easy-going Aoyagi meets an old friend for a fishing trip, he ends up drugged, framed for the Prime Minister's assassination, and on the run from corrupt cops. It’s only the beginning of what quickly becomes the worst, weirdest day of his life. But he'll get by with a little help from his friends, who include a famous pop diva, a rockabilly deliveryman, a crippled old gangster, and the world's most cheerful serial killer.

Among the many puzzles of this twisty, clever film is how Nakamura manages to sneak a genuinely moving tribute to friendship into the madcap procession of perilous events. No matter what befalls Aoyagi, his friends and parents believe in him because of his steadfast, almost irrational pleasantness. For all of us who've ever wondered what a cross between Pee-wee's Big Adventure and The Fugitive might look like, search no further than this hugely satisfying pop concoction, based on a novel by the popular young novelist Kotaro Isaka and already a major hit in its native Japan.

EVERYDAY SUNSHINE: THE STORY OF FISHBONE
Dir. Chris Metzler, Lev Anderson
USA, 2010, 103 mins, DigiBeta - NTSC, HDCAM - NTSC

Producers: Chris Metzler, Lev Anderson
Cinematographer: Jeff Springer
Editor: Jeff Springer
Cast: Fishbone, Flea, Ice-T, Perry Farrell, Gwen Stefani, Branford Marsalis & Narrated by Laurence Fishburne

When Fishbone hit the Los Angeles music scene in the early ‘80s, they were like nothing anyone had ever seen before—an all-black band that played an indefinable musical mélange of pop, punk, funk, and ska with a manic energy that stunned even the most jaded punk rocker. Everyone who saw them felt certain that they were destined to take over the world, but that success never came. Despite continuous critical support and legendary live performances, Fishbone spent the next thirty years waiting to, as their former manager puts it, “blow up big time.”

Far more than a simple “rise and fall of a band” story, Everyday Sunshine is, like the band it documents, many things at once. It’s an indictment of a music industry overly dependent on simplistic categorizations. It’s a thirty-year history of the black experience in Los Angeles, from the desegregation efforts of the late Seventies to Rodney King to today. Most importantly, it’s an intimate look at the creative freedom and the enduring friendships that have kept Fishbone together—and at times torn them apart—over their remarkable career.

SEPARADO! - in Spanish, Portugese, English, Welsh w/ English subtitles
Dir. Gruff Rhys, Dylan Goch
Producer: Catryn Ramasut
Editor: Dylan Goch
Music: Gruff Rhys

This psychedelic mash-up of road movie, concert film, and family history begins when Gruff Rhys, lead singer of Brit pop band Super Furry Animals, teleports (yes, teleports) from Wales to Patagonia, where, guitar in hand and Power Rangers helmet on head, he sets out to explore the musical and migratory connections between his homeland and South America.

In search of two relatives—one a poncho-wearing folk singer from the ’70s who combined Welsh lyrics with Latin sounds, the other a suspected murderer who emigrated in the late 1800s to Patagonia—Rhys meanders through the countryside, meeting people and making music, while the film captures his journey in a Jodorowsky-inspired rush of split screens, unreliable narrators, jam sessions, and interviews with distant relatives. With its delightfully free form style, Separado! is never meant to be taken too seriously. It is, however, absolutely sincere in its affection for the people and the music Rhys encounters. His giddy enthusiasm endows the film with an infectious energy that propels him and the film towards its magical, musical conclusion.
