THE BABADOOK

JANUARY 2 - JANUARY 8

 

 

 

 

directed by Jennifer Kent, Drama/ Thriller / Horror, not rated, Australia, English,2014, 93 min.

 

Six years after the violent death of her husband, Amelia (Essie Davis) is at a loss. She struggles

to discipline her ‘out of control’ 6 year-old, Samuel (Noah Wiseman), a son she finds impossible

to love. Samuel’s dreams are plagued by a monster he believes is coming to kill them both.

When a disturbing storybook called The Babadook turns up at their house, Samuel is convinced

that the Babadook is the creature he’s been dreaming about. His hallucinations spiral out of control,

and he becomes more unpredictable and violent. Amelia, genuinely frightened by her son’s behavior,

is forced to medicate him. But when Amelia begins to see glimpses of a sinister presence all around her,

it slowly dawns on her that the thing Samuel has been warning her about may be real.

THE OVERNIGHTERS

JANUARY 2 - JANUARY 8

 

 

Directed by Robert Greene, Drama / Documentary, Unrated, USA, English, 2014, 86 min.

 

In the tiny town of Williston, North Dakota, tens of thousands of unemployed hopefuls show up with dreams of honest work and a

big paycheck under the lure of the oil boom. However, busloads of newcomers chasing a broken American Dream step into the stark

reality of slim work prospects and nowhere to sleep. The town lacks the infrastructure to house the overflow of migrants, even for

those who do find gainful employment. Over at Concordia Lutheran Church, Pastor Jay Reinke is driven to deliver the migrants some

dignity. Night after night, he converts his church into a makeshift dorm and counseling center, opening the church’s doors to allow

the “Overnighters” (as he calls them) to stay for a night, a week or longer

Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me

 

JANUARY 12 - JANUARY 15 

 


Directed by James Keach Documentary/Performance Rated PG, US, 116 min

 


In 2011, music legend Glen Campbell set out on an unprecedented tour

across America. They thought it would last 5 weeks, instead it went for 151 spectacular

sold out shows. What made this tour extraordinary was that Glen had recently been

diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. He was told to hang up his guitar and prepare

for the inevitable. Instead, Glen and his wife went public with his diagnosis and

announced that he and his family would set out on a goodbye tour, using love,
laughter and music as their medicine of choice.

NATIONAL GALLERY

 

JANUARY 16 - JANUARY 22

  directed by Frederick Wiseman, Documentary, Not Rated, USA, English, 2014, 180 min.

 

Two national treasures, the US's doumentarian Fredrick Wiseman and the UK's National Gallery, join to deliver a brilliant, timulating glimpse into the art world.

London's National Gallery, one of the world's foremost art institutions, is itself portrayed as a brilliant work of art in this, Frederick Wiseman's 39th documentary and counting. Wiseman

listens raptly as a panoply of docents decode the great canvases of Da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Turner; he visits with the museum's restorers as they use magnifying glasses, tiny eye-droppers,

scalpels, and Q-tips to repair an infinitesimal chip; he attends administrative meetings in which senior executives do (polite) battle with younger ones who want the museum to become less stodgy and more welcoming to a larger cross-section of the public. But most of all, we experience the joy of spending time with the aforementioned masters as well as Vermeer and Caravaggio, Titian and Velázquez, Pissarro and Rubens, and listen to the connoisseurs who discourse upon the aesthetic, historical, religious and psychological underpinnings of these masterpieces.

Beloved Sisters

January 23 – January29

 

 

 

Dir. Dominik Graf - 2014 - 170m - Germany, Austria - In German with English subtitles

 

The unconventional romance between two aristocratic sisters and a rebellious poet who took the European literary world by storm in the late eighteenth century.  As the German Enlightenment flourishes in Weimar, vibrant Caroline von Beulwitz (Hannah Herszsprung) finds herself in an unhappy marriage to provide for her mother and shy younger sister Charlotte von Lengefeld (Henriette Confurius).  When both sisters fall for outspoken writer Friedrich Schiller (Florian Stetter), their desire ignites a journey of shared passion and creativity.  Charlotte and Schiller marry so that the lovers may pursue their ménage à trois under the guise of convention, but as Caroline reveals herself to be a talented author in her own right, the trio's fragile equilibrium is threatened and the sisters’ once unbreakable connection is irrevocably changed.

CONCRETE NIGHT

January 23 – January29

 

 

 

dir Pirjo Honkaslo,  Drama, Unrated,  Finland, Finnish, 2013, 96 min

 

 

Concrete Night is a dream-like odyssey through beautiful Helsinki over the course of one night. The protagonist of the film is a 14-year-old boy named Simo who is still searching for a sense of self and the ability to protect himself from his surroundings. He lacks his own identity. Simo and his big brother Ilkka are the sons of a helpless and unpredictable single mother. Their chaotic home is located deep in the heart of a concrete jungle in Helsinki. Ilkka has one day of freedom left before starting his prison sentence. The mother persuades Simo to spend the last night with his brother. During the course of the day and night spent roaming around Helsinki, the brothers witness incidents they would rather not see. Vulnerable Simo is not equipped to justify what he sees or delude himself – seeing things accurately as they are. To him, the unfiltered world seems unbearable.
