"Racial integration is Elena's profession and passion, not only filling her working day as a cultural mediator assisting immigrants, but spilling over into her home life as well. All too often her daughter Giovanna and her husband Carlo, a computer technician, must attend evening charity events where they feel distinctly out of place. During one of these evenings, Carlo meets Nadine, a beautiful black woman with whom he establishes an intimate understanding at first glance. Nadine's husband Bertrand, a refined black intellectual and the evening's featured speaker, stirs everyone with his heartfelt words.

I, Tonya

Loading
Based on the unbelievable but true events, I, Tonya is a dark comedic tale of American figure skater, Tonya Harding, and one of the most sensational scandals in sports history. Though Harding was the first American woman to complete a triple axel in competition, her legacy was forever defined by her association with an infamous and poorly executed attack on fellow Olympic competitor Nancy Kerrigan. I, Tonya is an absurd, irreverent, and piercing portrayal of Harding's life and career in all of its unchecked--and checkered--glory.

Selfie

Loading
Bosco (Santiago Alveru) has the typical life of a wealthy Madrid family offspring, living in a huge house in the outskirts, going out with flighty, attractive Paula (Clara Alvarado) and studying for the requisite MBA. But early on, his politico father is arrested and jailed on multiple corruption charges (something that's been happening a lot recently in real-world Spain) and suddenly his world falls apart. The family's possessions are seized; Paula will soon leave Bosco; and he's asked to drop his course of study. In other words, when the money goes down, everything else goes down with it — except, inevitably and comically, Bosco's sense of social superiority.

The Last Laugh

Loading
A feature documentary that proceeds from the premise that the Holocaust would seem to be an absolutely off-limits topic for comedy. But is it? History shows that even the victims of the Nazi concentration camps themselves used humor as a means of survival and resistance. Still, any use of comedy in connection with this horror risks diminishing the suffering of millions. So where is the line? If we make the Holocaust off limits, what are the implications for other controversial subjects--9/11, AIDS, racism--in a society that prizes freedom of speech? Shot on Super 16mm, "The Last Laugh" thoughtfully weaves together an intimate cinema verité portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with influential comedians and thinkers ranging from Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverm [...]
