Jan 15 to Jan 18
Monday to Thursday 4:00, 8:15

Dir. Brett Morgen - 2017 - 90m

BONUS!  Special guest speaker Brittany Fallon, research faculty at UNM, primatologist working with wild chimps in Uganda, to do a special presentation at the evening shows of Monday 15th & Tuesday 16th!  ALSO -  Sound designer for JANE, Joshua Paul Johnson, will introduce the evening screening on Wednesday January 17 and Thursday January 18 and will be here for post-screening discussion !  

Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of JANE, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world.

Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.

“One of the best documentaries of 2017. An astonishing accomplishment. Morgen is setting the bar for profile documentaries and changing the rules for his field.” - BRIAN TALLERICO, ROGEREBERT.COM

“Few films this year offer up such lush and formal components. Morgen has made a film of deep emotional beauty. Required viewing for anyone seeking a classic in the making.” - KATE ERBLAND, INDIEWIRE

“Transcends the boundaries of both nature films and biographies. Its epic elements of adventure, romance, and spiritual connection possess a sweep equal to any narrative film. A wondrous, moving, and truly stirring portrait that puts us right there with Goodall to share in her discoveries, propelled by the majestic sounds of Philip Glass. This is a truly stirring legacy portrait.” - DAVID ROONEY, HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

Dir. Pat Collins - 2017 - 104m - Ireland / Canada- No matinees

Enigmatic and complex, Joe Heaney was one of the greats of traditional Irish singing (sean nós). Shaped by the myths, fables, and songs of his upbringing in the west of Ireland, his emergence as a gifted artist came at a personal cost. Featuring performances from Colm Seoighe, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Jaren Cerf, Lisa O'Neill, Damien Dempsey, and sean nós singers Mícheál Ó Chonfhaola and Pól Ó Ceannabháin, and beautiful black and white cinematography, SONG OF GRANITE is a distinct portrait of Heaney’s life and a marvelous exploration of music and song.

“More than the story of an individual, the film is a stirring tribute to endangered folk traditions.” - Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times

“If Andrei Tarkovsky had grown up in rural Ireland, he might have made a biographical cine-memoir as luminously beautiful as Song of Granite.” - Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

“This patient and luminous life-of-the-artist film freshens everything stale about its genre.” - Alan Scherstuhl, Village Voice

“The film's monochromatic images are so beautiful they're almost as soul-nourishing as the transporting vocals and otherworldly reels the soundtrack envelopes us in.” - Bob Strauss, Los Angeles Daily News

A teenage girl and her younger brother must survive a wild 24 hours when a virus of unknown origins causes parents to turn on their own kids!

“A tale as old as Greek mythology, told with verve, panache and lots of fake blood…The kind of rip-snorting, relatively cheap and cheerful black comedy the industry doesn’t make enough of anymore, Mom & Dad is a deliciously lurid throwback to cult fare like Parents, Heathers, Serial Mom, early Gregg Araki movies and other to-the-bone horror-driven skewerings of suburban pieties.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“…this giddy exercise transcends mere bad-taste humor to become one of the great jet-black comedies about suburbia, destined for the same cult-classic status accorded The Stepford Wives, Parents and Heathers.” - Variety

A twisted remake of Home Alone on bath salts.” - Screen Crush

“Nicolas Cage in full -on nutzoid mode.” - Indiewire

“A demented blast.” -JoBlo
