STORMING PAPA DOC

February  7   7 - 10 pm


 HAITI   92 MINS.

 

 

"Victorieux ou morts mais jamais prisonniers" - "Victory or Death but never Prisoners" sets the stage and the motto of the new documentary directed by Mario L Delatour. Storming Papa Doc, the English title of this historical reenactment set on July 28th, 1958, tells the story of ex-army officers from Haiti who are exiled out of the country to Florida, USA only to return with a vengeance to overthrow Haitian President, Dr. Francois Duvalier. Created in animation and intercut with interviews of friends and family members of the brigade, the film explores the interesting lives of each member. Portraying a time capsule of Haiti in the 1940's and Florida as a temporary incubator, this artistic film seeks to chronicle what could have been one of the most successful military operations in Haitian history, the removal of the most notorious dictator's of the 20th century.

HUMAN CAPITAL

February 13 – February 19

 

 dir Paolo Virzi, Drama, Not Rated, Italy /France, Enlish/Italian,2015, 2015

 

Human Capital begins at the end, as a cyclist is run off the road by a careening SUV the night before Christmas Eve. As details emerge of the events leading up to the accident, the lives of the well-to-do Bernaschi family, privileged and detached, will intertwine with the Ossolas, struggling to keep their comfortable middle-class life, in ways neither could have expected. Dino Ossola (Fabrizio Bentivoglio), in dire financial straits, anticipates the birth of twins with his second wife (Valeria Golino). Meanwhile, Dino's teenage daughter's relationship with hedge-fund manager Giovanni Bernaschi's playboy son complicates an already tricky social dance of status, money and ambition.

Not far from Timbuktu, now ruled by the religious fundamentalists, Kidane lives peacefully in the dunes with his wife Satima, his daughter Toya, and Issan, their twelve-year-old shepherd. In town, the people suffer, powerless, from the regime of terror imposed by the Jihadists determined to control their faith. Music, laughter, cigarettes, even soccer have been banned. The women have become shadows but resist with dignity. Every day, the new improvised courts issue tragic and absurd sentences. Kidane and his family are being spared the chaos that prevails in Timbuktu. But their destiny changes when Kidane accidentally kills Amadou, the fisherman who slaughtered his beloved cow. He now has to face the new laws of the foreign occupants.

TALE OF WINTER

   FEBRUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 26

dir  Eric Rohmer, Drama, No Rating, France, French w/ English subtitles, 1992,  114 min.

In this second of his saga of four seasons, writer/director Eric Rohmer takes a look at the romantic escapades of a youthful hairdresser, who tries to balance her time between two lovers, her boss and a librarian.

Felicie and Charles have a serious if whirlwind holiday romance. Due to a mix-up on addresses they lose contact, and five years later at Christmas-time Felicie is living with her mother in a cold Paris with a daughter as a reminder of that long-ago summer. For male companionship she oscillates between hairdresser Maxence and the intellectual Loic, but seems unable to commit to either as the memory of Charles and what might have been hangs over everything.

After learning that her co-workers will vote to decide her fate on Monday morning, Sandra races against time over the course of the weekend, often with the help of her husband, to convince each of her fellow employees to sacrifice their much-needed bonuses so she can keep her job.
