FRITZ THE CAT - 50th Anniversary Screenings as part of our Ralph Bakshi double feature!

May 24 to May 26
Tuesday to Thursday 4:30, 8:30

Dir. Ralph Bakshi - 1972 - 78m - Must be 18 Years or Older! No Matinees!

THE NOTORIOUS X-RATED CARTOON FEATURE (THE FIRST!) DOUBLE FEATURED WITH RALPH BAKSHI'S 1982 HEY GOOD LOOKIN'!   2 MOVIES FOR ONLY ONE PRICE!

Maverick writer/director Ralph Bakshi (Heavy Traffic, Wizards) made his feature-length film debut with this audacious foray into adult-content animation, creating one of the most successful animated features of its time! Based on a legendary character created by underground comic book artist/writer R. Crumb, Fritz the Cat is a brilliant commentary on ’60s life and a “snarling satire that stubbornly refuses to curl up in anyone’s lap” (Playboy). It’s the age of awakening and Fritz, one way-cool cat and NYU student, loves to embrace every experimental experience that crosses his path. Embarking on a fantastic journey of self-discovery, he indulges in everything from multiple bedroom follies to a wild joy ride through a dangerous Harlem. But when Fritz joins a group of radically aggressive hippies, he finds himself holding the dynamite that will detonate the ultimate ’60s statement—one that could cost him his life!

"Excellent animation and montage shore up a plot which has a few howls, several chuckles and many smiles." - Variety

"Fritz the Cat looks back at the supposed "good times" of the 1960s with a biting sensibility that scratches out the eyes of nearly every sacred liberal institution." - B.L. Panther, The Spool

"For a movie that's largely remembered for being "the dirty animal cartoon," Fritz the Cat is also a surprisingly biting socioeconomic critique of 1960s counterculture." - Christopher Lloyd, The Film Yap

Tuesday thru Thursday 6:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Ralph Bakshi - 1982 - 77m - No Matinees

40th ANNIVERSARY SCREENINGS!  

DOUBLE FEATURED WITH THE NOTORIOUS 70s X-RATED FRITZ THE CAT (a 50th Anniversary!) 

From Cool World creator Ralph Bakshi, Hey Good Lookin’ is an outrageous, nostalgic and adult take on a more innocent time. Well, not that much more innocent: not every street corner was a Happy Days setting. Our hero, Vinnie, leader of the ragtag gang known as the Brooklyn Stompers, plays it cool. His lady, Roz, thinks he’s the most wonderful thing on two legs. And his off-the-wall, hot-wired friend Crazy Shapiro would die for the honor of Vinnie and the gang. They’re all sympathetic and familiar characters turned loose in a funky, surreal cartoon landscape that really packs a punch, just as the ‘50s-styled soundtrack of original songs by John Madara and Ric Sandler evokes playful memories. With Fritz the Cat, Heavy Traffic and Cool World, Bakshi made animation history mixing mature themes and hip humor. 

"One of Bakshi’s best" - Noel Murray, AV Club

PLEASURE

May 27 to May 30
Friday thru Monday 8:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Ninja Thyberg - 2022 - 105m - Must be 18 years or older!

Ninja Thyberg’s debut feature film PLEASURE is a journey into the Los Angeles porn industry through the lens of newcomer Bella Cherry (a stunning first time performance by Sofia Kappel). Strong, self-confident and determined, Bella embarks on a mission to become the best at any cost.

PLEASURE also written by Thyberg includes an ensemble of adult industry actors.

"Kappel's jaw-dropping and fearless performance blurs fiction and reality." - Carlos Aguilar, RogerEbert.com

"Thyberg doesn't shy away from the specifics of her milieu, but it's not an exposé on what pornography does to women as much as a harrowing examination of what the workplace expects and allows from women and men." - Alonso Duralde, TheWrap

"Grounded in years of meticulous research into the porn scene and cast with actors drawn entirely from that world except for Kappel herself, Pleasure is very persuasive in its evocation of the milieu." - Leslie Felperin, Hollywood Reporter

"With clarity, the most dire and disgusting aspects of the porn industry are highlighted in this technically accomplished if potentially divisive 18+ feature." - Emily Maskell, Little White Lies

A BLACK CINEMA NIGHT DEBUT SPECIAL PRESENTED BY INIMATE CONNECTIONS & HOSTED BY KAT !!

A creepy mortician, Mr. Simms (the late great Clarence Williams III !), attempts to scare teenage drug dealer Stack (Joe Torry) and his friends straight by telling them four horrifying stories.

He also tells of a meek schoolboy (Brandon Hammond) with terrifying supernatural powers. Although the young thugs want to take their drugs and escape Mr. Simms, he still has two more tales to tell.

"One of the smartest genre offerings of the era and, quite possibly, the best anthology of its decade." - Dustin Putman, TheFrightFile.com

"A smart and sassy horror anthology that mixes blunt shocks and sharp satire." - Joe Leydon, Variety

"It ingeniously employs the multi-saga format popularized by the likes of Dead of Night and Tales from the Crypt as a springboard for an examination of real problems facing African-American communities." - Matt Brunson, Film Frenzy

"A landmark genre picture." - Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat

THE GIRL AND THE SPIDER

May 27 to May 30
Friday thru Monday 3:45, 6pm

Dir. Ramon and Silvan Zurcher - 2021 - 99m - France - in French with English subtitles

As her roommate Lisa prepares to move out of their apartment, Mara contemplates the end of an era. Furniture is moved, walls painted, cupboards built. Amid all the hustle and bustle, secret longings and desires come to the surface and coalesce around the roommates as well as around Lisa’s mother Astrid, the movers, the girls’ old neighbors, the neighbors’ cat, Lisa’s new neighbor and an ever-expanding cast of characters. Day turns into night and one final party in the apartment. When the last box is moved, the fragments of their lives remain. 

The Zürcher brothers compose a poetic panopticon of forms of human relationships that is at once a study of everyday life, a fairytale and a psychological portrait of a brittle world. Following The Strange Little Cat, The Girl and the Spider is the second installment in a trilogy about human togetherness, a ballad about the need for closeness and the pain of separation. 

Critic’s Pick! "Wonderfully discombobulating…Demands and rewards repeat viewings; it’s different, and more entrancing, every time." - Ben Kenigsberg, The New York Times 

"A symphony of separation and solitude." - Allan Hunter, Screen International 

"Deliciously ambiguous…[The] Zürchers’ movies are like prisms, capturing the things people do when they think no one’s watching…and when they desperately wish they were." - Peter DeBruge, Variety 

"Thrilling, thrilling cinema. Order and chaos fighting it out at the level of form and content." - Erika Balsom, The Film Comment Podcast

Dir. Ti West - 2009 - 85m - ALL SEATS $10

A DARK ROOM HORROR SPECIAL!  ADVANCE TICKETS VIA EVENTBRITE.COM AVAILABLE SOON, CHECK BACK HERE SHORTLY!

From the director of the new movie X that plays ike a lost horror classic from 1982 ! A college student takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a lunar eclipse and realizes her clients are planning to use her in a satanic ritual.   Starring Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov. 

"With The House of the Devil, audiences will once again be reminded of innovation in horror. Plus, they’ll also be reminded of how awesome owning a Walkman was ... If House of the Devil was put in a stack of horror flicks from 1979-1984, no one on the planet would ever realize it was made thirty years after the fact. What Ti West has achieved here as a director is creating a movie that’s not an homage – it’s a full on re-creation of the style, tone and story of the horror world of the early 80s that blends satanism and a nation’s deep concern for its babysitters."  - Dr. Cole Abaius, Film School Rejects

FREAKSCENE: THE STORY OF DINOSAUR JR.

May 31
Tuesday 4pm, 6pm, 8pm

Dir. Philipp Virus - 2022 - 82m

ADVANCE TICKETS AVAILABLE ONLINE BY CLICKING HERE!

An homage of one of the most influential bands on the American East Coast, which inspired the rock scene -- including Nirvana and Sonic Youth -- in the 1990s. Their style and unmistakable sound, later referred as "Grunge", laid the foundation for the entire "Slacker" culture of Generation X. It is also the story of the eloquent and eccentric guitarist and bandleader J. Mascis, the bassist Lou Barlow and drummer Murph and a band that insanely does not talk to each other. Communication takes place exclusively through music. Philipp Reichenheim nevertheless manages to make the closed and shy icons speak. An emotional, tragically funny and sometimes noisy rollercoaster ride by a dysfunctional family -- Dinosaur Jr. Through several decades, the film offers rare insights into the crazy everyday life of the band and illuminates the inner workings of a cult band from its beginnings in the 1980s and 90s to the present day.

"A grounded glimpse behind the scenes of one of the more mysterious legends in alt-rock" - NME

"Beautifully balances the giddiness of a fan and the warmth of a close friend." - The Guardian

"From start to end, the film is buoyed by its endearingly neurotic (or, in Mascis case, monosyllabic) subjects, and by their consistently great music." - Oscar Goff, Boston Hassle

THE AUTOMAT

Jun 1 to Jun 2
Wednesday and Thursday 4pm, 6pm, 8pm

Dir. Lisa Hurwitz - 2022 - 79m

Once upon a nickel, before fast food, one American restaurant empire was unstoppable!

“"Said the Technocrat, to the Plutocrat, To the Autocrat, and the Democrat, Let's all go eat at the Automat." ? New York Evening Sun, 1933

Featuring Mel Brooks, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Elliot Gould, Colin Powell, Carl Reiner, Howard Schultz and many others!

“The Automat” recounts the lost history of the iconic restaurant chain Horn & Hardart, which served affordable-priced quality food to millions of New Yorkers and Philadelphians for more than a century. Found by Joseph Horn and Frank Hardart in 1888, it revolutionized the nation’s restaurant scene with comfortable interiors, quality food, and state of the art technology for the early 20th century. The chain welcomed those who had been ignored, including immigrants, the working-class, Blacks, and women, all of whom were often not welcome in restaurants. Horn & Hardart’s technology captured the public’s imagination like nothing else in 1900’s— the customer put nickels into slots and little windows opened to reveal the customer’s pick, be it a slice of pie, macaroni and cheese, or a Salisbury steak. The gleaming glass and stainless-steel windows looked “sanitary” and like nothing else in existence. “The Automat” illustrates how the company both served the public with great food and at the same time treated its employees with fairness and integrity. 

The documentary’s theme song written in the Great American Songbook genre “(There Was Nothing Like The Coffee) At the Automat” was composed by comedian and writer Mel Brooks, who speaks with great affection about his days eating at the Automat. Brooks’ composer Hummie Mann is credited with writing the rest of the film’s score, which was done in the Gentleman’s Swing genre, and performed by a 26-piece orchestra.  

Mel Brooks is one of several prominent Americans paying homage in the film to the memory of a restaurant chain that once dotted the corners of two great cities.  The late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Secretary of State Colin Powell, actors Carl Reiner and Elliott Gould, the Horn family and the Hardart family, and dedicated former employees share memories of life at the Automat.  Starbucks Coffee founder Howard Schultz talks about how he was inspired to start his company because of Horn and Hardart.  

The Automats were also known for their outstanding décor with grand entrances and luxurious interior spaces embellished in Carrara marble and brass fixtures. Joseph Horn and Frank Hardart felt that inexpensive food should still be served in an elegant setting. Coffee dispensers featured dolphin head spouts out of which coffee cascaded, tables were marble, and windows framed in brass. A cashier mounted in the center made change so you could put your nickels and dimes into the slots of the little door windows to get your slice of pie, macaroni and cheese or a salisbury steak, which magically appeared from behind the other side of the wall.

Horn and Hardart was a favorite location for dozens of movies and televisions shows. Jean Arthur bantered with Ray Milland in front of the three-nickel pie slot, and Cary Grant spotted Doris Day entering the store. 

Director Lisa Hurwitz spent eight years interviewing dozens of celebrities and former employees and visiting far-flung places where collectors hoard the surviving remnants of the once spectacular Automat restaurants.  The audience will enjoy an endearing first time look into one of the most successful business ventures of its time through the eyes of those touched by their experiences.

Presented in split screen, VORTEX tells the story of an aging couple in a Paris apartment.

DASHCAM

Jun 4
Saturday 10:30pm ONLY!

Dir. Rob Savage - 2022 - 77m - US/UK - ALL SEATS $8

A caustic online streamer’s anarchic behaviour triggers a non-stop nightmare in the latest screenlife frightfest from Rob Savage. Last summer, horror fans were terrorized by Rob Savage’s Host, a pandemic-produced scare factory that cannily captured our contemporary conditions as it depicted an online séance gone scarily wrong. With DASHCAM, Savage and his collaborators once more reflect our current cultural milieu, further distilling an extended lockdown’s worth of anxieties into a nonstop nightmare, but this time compellingly filtering them through the perverse perspective of a caustic and conspiratorial “always-online” troll in what has to be among the most chaotic horror protagonists ever encountered.

Framed within a livestream, an indie-rock musician portrays a self-consciously obnoxious exaggeration of her own polarizing online persona. Exasperated and depressed by her pandemic lifestyle in Los Angeles, she breaks quarantine for London, England, and the hospitality of a former bandmate. But when her fringe beliefs and selfish behavior incite contempt from her progressive friends, her response inadvertently propels her (and her online audience) into a perilous and profane high-wire horror chase through an increasingly foreboding English countryside.

With a manic momentum, innovative camerawork, and shockingly cavalier nihilism reminiscent of the original Evil Dead, Savage and his lead have fearlessly constructed an uncomfortable emblem of triggering social media extremities in this anti-hero, and they put her (and the unfortunate souls in her orbit) through a dizzying wringer of inventive gore, gallows humor, and impish provocations. Audiences will either smash that proverbial like button, or be incensed to tweet vitriol, but the discourse that erupts is guaranteed to leave a mark.

“A found-footage horror for the era of live-streaming ... some seriously grisly splatter effects.  Not just a film which is designed to be watched in a cinema, but one which should be viewed with the rowdiest audience available." -  Wendy Ide, Screen Daily 

“4 STAR REVIEW - The writing team of Savage, Gemma Hurley, and Jed Shepherd have once again crafted a dark and disturbing tale that will provide fresh nightmare fuel to sustain that started by Host.  Savage throws everything in his arsenal to keep the adrenaline levels surging ... Dan Martin’s FX sing once more.  As intense, action-packed, and terrifying as moments of Dashcam are, it is the comedy that really shines here.  Dashcam... is exactly the kind of wild genre film that cinema was made for.” - Kat Hughes, The Hollywood News 

“Shocking, wild and outrageous.  Savage’s direction is once again top-notch ... a hell of a good time.  This might be the wildest film you see this year or even this decade ... Another masterclass in terror from Savage.  Come for the shocks, but stay for the laughs.” - Maria Lattila , Film Hounds

FIDDLER’S JOURNEY TO THE BIG SCREEN

Jun 7 to Jun 9
Tuesday thru Thursday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Daniel Raim - 2022 - 88m - No Matinees

The fall of 2021 marked the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof, the film Pauline Kael (The New Yorker) called "the most powerful movie musical ever made." Narrated by Jeff Goldblum, FIDDLER'S JOURNEY TO THE BIG SCREEN captures the humor and drama of director Norman Jewison's quest to recreate the lost world of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia and re-envision the beloved stage hit as a wide-screen epic.

Oscar-nominated filmmaker Daniel Raim puts us in the director's chair and in Jewison's heart and mind, drawing on behind-the-scenes footage and never-before-seen stills as well as original interviews with Jewison, Topol (Tevye), composer John Williams, production designer Robert F. Boyle, film critic Kenneth Turan, lyricist Sheldon Harnick, and actresses Rosalind Harris, Michele Marsh, and Neva Small (Tevye’s daughters).

The film explores how the experience of making Fiddler deepened Jewison as an artist and revived his soul.

"It really lays out so lucidly the history... The clips that they show are revelatory in so many ways." - Peter Rainer, FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles)

“As wondrous, buoyant and heartwarming as the film it celebrates." - Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times

"The creative details and anecdotes will appeal most to both the shows fans and movie buffs, along with snippets of on-set footage from the production." - Robert Abele, TheWrap

"This is no ordinary behind-the-scenes documentary. For one thing, it chronicles the adaptation of a musical play that qualifies as a genuine phenomenon. Based on a story originally told in Yiddish, it has turned out to have universal resonance." - Leonard Maltin, leonardmaltin.com

"Raim wisely works in many instances of “Fiddler” actors and music department members reciting lines or singing lyrics from the movie, often from memory." - Natalia Winkelman, New York Times

"This doc looks into Hollywood’s multicultural liberalism before the industry became obsessed with virtue-signaling and limited its enterprise." - Armond White, National Review

"If, like Tevye, you don’t remember growing older but can’t forget Fiddler after half a century, this film’s for you." - Tim Appelo, AARP Movies for Grownups

"A worthwhile exploration of the 1971 film version of Fiddler on the Roof and its place in the history of the musical." - Stephen Silver, Splice Today

"An affectionate tribute blending some behind-the-scenes material and mostly older interviews with the films star Topol and others." - Elias Savada, Film International

"A joyous deep dive into a musical and movie that is probably deserving of another revival." - Edward Douglas, The Weekend Warrior

THE DUKE

Jun 7 to Jun 9
Tuesday thru Thursday 3:45, 8pm

Dir. Roger Michell - 2022 - 96m - UK

Starring a fabulous Helen Mirren & Jim Broadbent!

Set in 1961 when Kempton Bunton, a 60-year old taxi driver, steals Goya’s portrait of the Duke of Wellington from the National Gallery in London. It was the first (and remains the only) theft in the Gallery’s history. Kempton sent ransom notes saying that he would return the painting on condition that the government agreed to provide television for free to the elderly. What happened next became the stuff of legend. Only 50 years later did the full story emerge – a startling revelation of how a good man set out to change the world and in so doing saved his son and his marriage.

"A charming, understated and completely enjoyable frolic about how ordinary people can do extraordinary things that seems doubly startling because, while seeming implausible, it also happens to be absolutely true." - Rex Reed, Observer

"It’s a daft, lovely story, and it opens up like a flower – the final half hour is deeply and unexpectedly moving." - Ty Burr, Ty Burr's Watch List

The acting is world-class and Oscar-worthy portraying endearingly eccentric characters who sustain an enduring, but slightly demented, relationship. The result is delightful, moving, and richly satisfying..." - Michael Medved, The Michael Medved Show

"More than just a traditionally made movie about a man who goes on trial for stealing a valuable painting from London's National Gallery. It's also a witty and emotional drama about a family coping with grief." - Carla Hay, Culture Mix

FIRE IN THE MOUNTAIN

Jun 10 to Jun 13
Friday thru Monday 4pm, 8:15

Dir. Ajitpal Singh - 2022 - 84m - India - In Hindu with English subtitles

In northern India, a breathtakingly beautiful Himalayan community attracts tourists by commingling South Asian and Swiss Alps aesthetics. Debut filmmaker Ajitpal Singh tells an unconventional story of feminist strength while “accentuating the [region’s] spectacular exteriors and wide-canvas nature shots” (Variety). One local woman competes with her neighbors for business while battling the strictures of patriarchy, a local infrastructure from hell, and religious superstitions. She saves money, uses feminine wiles to subvert the corrupt powers-that-be, and piggy-backs her son up and down the mountainside to medical appointments with condescending doctors. In the end, our heroine’s tightly wound grit must find release… in triumph, or madness, or both. 

“A powerful feminist tale. Deeply empathetic.” - Naman Ramachandran, Variety

“An entrancing reverie of Himalayan life in India. A mix of heavenly landscapes and desperate lives. An uncategorizable cinematic experience — and a haunting one.” - Christian Blauvelt, Indiewire

“Provocative. Breathtaking vistas of green hills, waterfalls, and snowy mountaintops…contrast with the high-stakes conflict the ensemble cast carefully weaves.” - Carlos Aguilar, Robert Ebert.com

THE WOBBLIES - the restored 1979 labor doc classic!

Jun 10 to Jun 13
Friday thru Monday 6pm ONLY!

Dir. Deborah Shaffer and Stewart Bird - 1979 - 89m - No Matinees!

“Solidarity! All for One and One for All!”

Founded in Chicago in 1905, the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) took to organizing unskilled workers into one big union and changed the course of American history. This compelling documentary of the IWW (or “The Wobblies” as they were known) tells the story of workers in factories, sawmills, wheat fields, forests, mines and on the docks as they organize and demand better wages, healthcare, overtime pay and safer working conditions. In some respects, men and women, Black and white, skilled and unskilled workers joining a union and speaking their minds seems so long ago, but in other ways, the film mirrors today’s headlines, depicting a nation torn by corporate greed.

Filmmakers Deborah Shaffer and Stewart Bird weave history, archival film footage, interviews with former workers (now in their 80s and 90s), cartoons, original art, and classic Wobbly songs (many written by Joe Hill) to pay tribute to the legacy of these rebels who paved the way and risked their lives for the many of the rights that we still have today.

Restored by the Museum of Modern Art and recently inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress.

“A vivid look into America’s radical past. Its heroes and heroines are filled with vitality—a rare attribute these days.” - Studs Terkel

“A history of the IWW, researched lovingly and corroborated by the reminiscences of some of the union’s former members. When the facts are presented as fully as they have been here, the feelings that accompanied them aren’t difficult to imagine." - The New York Times

“Conveys the conviction and strength of these union pioneers with straightforward grace.” - Michael Blowen, The Boston Globe

“Iconic. Innovative. Eerily echoing current times. Replete with gorgeous archival footage, the film pays tribute to American workers who took the ideals of equality and free speech seriously enough to put their lives on the line for them. A joyous chronicle.” New York Women in Film & Television

IN BED WITH ULYSSES - in commemorate the 100th Anniversary of its publication!

Jun 14 to Jun 16
Tuesday thru Thursday 4:30, 6:15

Dir. Alan Adelson & Kate Taverna - 2013 - 80m

The story behind the writing, publishing, and censoring of ULYSSES. Using a wonderful combination of original footage, interviews and staged readings starring renowned actress Kathleen Chalfant, the film captures both the genius and madness of James Joyce and the toll ULYSSES took on its author and his family, the shock waves it caused around the world, the fight to censor and suppress it and it's ultimate liberation and impact. IN BED WITH ULYSSES not only celebrates the centennial one of the most important novels of the modern era but it also chronicles in depth the attempts to censor and ban ULYSSES especially in the United States where it lead to the single most important court case on banning works of art. ULYSSES was finally published in the US in 1933 after it won the court battle.

NEPTUNE FROST

Jun 17 to Jun 20
Friday thru Monday 8pm ONLY!

Dir. Saul Williams and Anisia Uzeyman - 2022 - 105m

Multi-hyphenate, multidisciplinary artist Saul Williams brings his unique dynamism to this Afrofuturist vision, a sci-fi punk musical that’s a visually wondrous amalgamation of themes, ideas, and songs that Williams has explored in his work, notably his 2016 album MartyrLoserKing. Co-directed with the Rwandan-born artist and cinematographer Anisia Uzeyman, the film takes place in the hilltops of Burundi, where a group of escaped coltan miners form an anti-colonialist computer hacker collective. From their camp in an otherworldly e-waste dump, they attempt a takeover of the authoritarian regime exploiting the region's natural resources – and its people. When an intersex runaway and an escaped coltan miner find each other through cosmic forces, their connection sparks glitches within the greater divine circuitry. Set between states of being – past and present, dream and waking life, colonized and free, male and female, memory and prescience – Neptune Frost is an invigorating and empowering direct download to the cerebral cortex and a call to reclaim technology for progressive political ends.

“The future of Black film. Pure cinematic power.” - Jourdain Searles, The Hollywood Reporter 

“Visionary. A journey of visual ecstasy.” - Valerie Complex, Deadline

“A mesmerizing Afropunk odyssey hacking at the boundaries of gender, technology, and class.” - Toussaint Egan, Polygon

“A percussive, transcendental Afrofuturist musical… sounds out with force and clarity.” - Charles Bramesco, Little White Lies

“A sensory delight… bursting with life and ingenuity.” - Jude Dry, Indiewire

“Hauntingly beautiful and deeply enigmatic.” - Lisa Kennedy, Variety

“A future cult classic in the making." - Dustin Chang, Screen Anarchy

“A truly distinctive vision.” - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

CANE FIRE

Jun 21 to Jun 23
Tuesday thru Thursday 4:15, 6:15pm

Dir. Anthony Banua-Simon - 2020 - 90m

he Hawaiian island of Kaua’i is seen as a paradise of leisure and pristine natural beauty, but these escapist fantasies obscure the colonial displacement, hyper-exploitation of workers, and destructive environmental extraction that have actually shaped life on the island for the last 250 years. CANE FIRE critically examines the island’s history—and the various strategies by which Hollywood has represented it—through four generations of director Anthony Banua-Simon’s family, who first immigrated to Kaua’i from the Philippines to work on the sugar plantations. Assembled from a diverse array of sources—from Banua-Simon’s observational footage, to amateur Youtube travelogues, to epic Hollywood dance sequences—CANE FIRE offers a kaleidoscopic portrait of the economic and cultural forces that have cast indigenous and working class residents as extras in their own story.

“Through original and deftly assembled archival footage, Anthony Banua-Simon's debut documentary feature CANE FIRE considers the long arc of white, corporate economic & cultural pillaging of Hawaii.” - Patrick Dahl, Screen Slate

“A necessary corrective to the perception of Hawaiian identity that diagnoses the problem of representation in pop culture through the filmmaker’s own deeply personal lens.” - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“CANE FIRE uncovers not one, but several underreported histories at the same time with equal parts reverence, relevance, and rage.” - Andrew Parker, The Gate

MAD GOD

Jun 21 to Jun 23
Tuesday thru Thursday 8:15pm ONLY!

Dir. Phil Tippett - 2022 - 83m

FROM TWO TIME ACADEMY AWARD WINNER PHIL TIPPET, A CINEMATIC LEGEND OF NON-CGI ANIMATION!

A corroded diving bell descends amidst a ruined city and the Assassin emerges from it to explore a labyrinth of bizarre landscapes inhabited by freakish denizens.

MAD GOD is a fully practical stop-motion film set in a Miltonesque world of monsters, mad scientists, and war pigs.

In 1987, legendary visual effects and stop-motion craftsman Phil Tippett embarked upon an ambitious personal project, fabricating and animating a darkly surreal world in which the creatures and nightmares of his imagination could roam free.  Phil produced dozens of environments and hundreds of puppets for the project, filling notebook after notebook with thousands of detailed sketches and storyboards. 

Decades after the success of Tippett Studio forced production into stasis, a group of animators at Tippett Studio came upon boxes of shelved props and puppets.  After viewing the original footage, they convinced Phil to resurrect the project.  The small group began volunteering their weekends to MAD GOD, and before long it had snowballed into a crew of more than 60 artists.  A wildly successful KickStarter campaign provided funding for materials and equipment.

Each piece of MAD GOD is hand crafted, independent and created from the heart.  Sometimes that heart is bursting with love for the craft, while other times it's macabre, punctured, and bleeding. MAD GOD is a mature film crafted from techniques & technologies that span the history of cinema and the career of a true animation mastermind.

"A mad opus from one of American cinema's liveliest minds." - The Film Stage

"Phil brings humanity and empathy to every character he creates" - Kathleen Kennedy (President of Lucasfilm)

"Mad God exudes devotion, with every frame carrying decades worth of ideas and craft." - IndieWire
