Jane B. Par Agnes V.

Never before released in the US until 2015, Angès Varda (Director of the **Oscar** Nominated *Faces Places*) paints a portrait of a woman (Jane Birkin) in a marvelously Expressionistic way. JANE B. abandons the bio-pic format, favoring instead a freewheeling mix of gorgeous fantasy sequences. *"...A distinctive, delightful and sometimes even surreal portrait of Ms. Birkin (and of the filmmaker)." - Glenn Kenny, **The New York Times*** *"Varda’s film asks to be understoon as fragments of thought and lived experience, where the cinematic medium enables a deliberate disjunction of time and space, certainly, but in Varda’s realm, life is already this way and capable of being engaged without the strictures of so-called “common sense.” For Varda, sense could never be such." - Clayton Dilla [...]

Central Park

CENTRAL PARK is a film about the famous New York City landmark and the variety of ways in which people make use of it: running, boating, walking, skating, music, theatre, sports, picnics, parades and concerts. The film also illustrates the complex problems the New York City Parks Department deals with in order to maintain and preserve the park and keep it open and accessible to the public. *"One of the most accessible and salutary films ever made by master documentarian Frederick Wiseman… ‘CENTRAL PARK’ celebrates not the Earth but the 840 acres of it in the middle of Manhattan where New Yorkers retreat and repair and lapse into modes of behavior one might actually classify as civilized.… Wiseman is one of the great filmmakers of our time." – Tom Shales, **The Washington Post***

Jealousy

One of the major French filmmakers of the post-New Wave, Philippe Garrel has belatedly been recognized as a master in America, and JEALOUSY may be his most accessible film in nearly 50 years of filmmaking. Shot in lustrous, widescreen black and white, the film opens with a man leaving his wife and daughter and, in a series of brief conversations, observed gestures, chance encounters and impulsive acts, tells the story of the relationships that flounder and thrive in the wake of this decision. Shot with Garrel’s celebrated sensitivity and attention to faces, bodies, hands and the intricacies of the human heart, JEALOUSY is an especially intimate, deeply poignant and never less than enthralling tale of love, temptation and betrayal. Nominated for the Golden Lion at the **Venice Film Fe [...]
