Une jeunesse amoureuse

Une jeunesse amoureuseLoading "François Caillat was twenty in 1970. From this, a certain banality, he nevertheless decided to make a film. A film that is both intimate and universal, which revolves around his stolen loves and his youth, starting from an era that itself seems gone forever. Without doubt this is done any time, and that is why this film will touch every viewer old enough to be attentive to the experience of loss which constitutes it. But something comes over in this film: the alliance of the 1970s as an unsurpassable horizon of freedom with the melancholy of ruins that followed them." -- www.lemonde.fr

Super trash

Super trashLoading "Martin returns his childhood place. He has now been buried by a huge open dump. Martin decides to settle and live in this world of garbage, punctuated by the forth back and forth dances of trucks and bulldozers leveling and discharging waste. For days and months, Martin will mark his place in an unbearable universe seemingly driving to madness. He feeds himself with the trash. He bathes into the river each daily, like a step back to the primitive world. He looks after animals trapped in the hellhole, and surfs on giant wave generated by the trash. Nothing looking for exposure such pointing fingers at one other, Martin simply tries, in this film, a desperate effort to make a metaphor for our world, minus the guilt. Martin won't accept this universe that has been imposed, he wants to [...]

How to die in Oregon

How to die in OregonLoading In 1994, Oregon became the first state to legalize physician-assisted suicide. Since then, more than 500 Oregonians have taken their mortality into their own hands. Filmmaker Peter Richardson gently enters the lives of the terminally ill as they consider whether--and when--to end their lives by lethal overdose. Richardson examines both sides of the complex, emotionally charged issue. What emerges is a life-affirming, staggeringly powerful portrait of what it means to die with dignity.

Treyf

TreyfLoading "Treyf" means "unkosher" in Yiddish and is sometimes used to label people with nontraditional ways of life, such as lesbians. This documentary is by and about two Jewish lesbians in New York who met and fell in love at a Passover seder. The filmmakers examine the impact of their Jewish identities on their lives through personal narration, real and imagined educational films, and imagery. Over the course of the film, they weave their way from New York to Jerusalem in pursuit of a progressive, secular Jewish identity that draws from their childhood reminiscences as much as from their contemporary queer lives.

Through a lens darkly : black photographers and the emergence of a people

Through a lens darklyLoading Inspired by Deborah Willis's book, Reflections in Black, Through a Lens Darkly, casts a broad net that begins with filmmaker Thomas Allen Harris's family album. It considers the difference between black photographers who use the camera to define themselves, their people, and their culture and some white photographers who, historically, have demeaned African-Americans through racist imagery. The film embraces both historical material (African-Americans who were slaves, who fought in the Civil War, were victims of lynchings, or were pivotal in the Civil Rights Movement) and contemporary images made by such luminaries as Roy DeCarava, Gordon Parks, and Carrie Mae Weems. The film is a cornucopia of Americana that reveals deeply disturbing truths about the history of race relations while [...]
