THE WRECKING CREW Sat 05/23/15 To Thu 05/28/15
(PG, 95mins, US) This documentary tells the story of the unsung musicians that provided the backbeat, the bottom and the swinging melody that drove many of the number one hits of the 60s and 70s. It didn't matter if it was Nat "King" Cole, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Sinatra, The Monkees, The Byrds or The Beach Boys, these dedicated backing musicians brought the flair and musicianship that made the American "west coast sound" a dominant cultural force around the world.
3 HEARTS Sun 05/24/15 To Thu 05/28/15
(PG13, 106mins, France - subtitled) A touching and tense drama about destiny and passion, presenting a romantic look at a classic love triangle. One night in provincial France, Marc (Benoît Poelvoorde) meets Sylvie (Charlotte Gainsbourg) after missing his train back to Paris. Intensely drawn to one another, they wander through the streets until morning in rare harmony. A thwarted plan for a second meeting sends each in a separate direction.
SHE'S BEAUTIFUL WHEN SHE'S ANGRY - Film Matters Fri 05/29/15
(NR, 87mins, US) This documentary resurrects the buried history of the outrageous, often brilliant women who founded the modern women's movement from 1966 to 1971. It takes us from the founding of NOW, when ladies wore hats and gloves, to the emergence of more radical factions of women's liberation; from intellectuals like Kate Millett to the street theatrics of WITCH (Women's International Conspiracy from Hell!). Presented in affiliation with New Hampshire Women’s Foundation. Panel discussion and Q&A to follow.
WHITE GOD Sat 05/30/15 To Thu 06/04/15
(R, 117mins, Hungary - subtitled) When young Lili is forced to give up her beloved dog Hagen, because his mixed-breed heritage is deemed 'unfit' by The State, she and the dog begin a dangerous journey back towards each other. At the same time, all the unwanted, unloved and so-called 'unfit' dogs rise up under a new leader, the one-time housepet who has learned all too well from his journey through the streets and animal control centers how to bite the hands that beat him.

WILD TALES Fri 06/05/15 To Thu 06/11/15
(R, 120mins, Argentina) - subtitled. Inequality, injustice and the demands of the world we live in cause stress and depression for many people. Some of them, however, explode. This is a movie about those people. Vulnerable in the face of a reality that shifts and suddenly turns unpredictable, the characters of Wild Tales cross the thin line that divides civilization and barbarism.
THE 100-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT THE WINDOW... Sun 06/07/15 To Thu 06/11/15
(R, 114mins, Sweden) - subtitled. Based on the internationally best-selling novel by Jonas Jonasson, the unlikely story of a 100-year-old man who decides it's not too late to start over. For most people it would be the adventure of a lifetime, but Allan Karlsson's unexpected journey is not his first. For a century he's made the world uncertain, and now he is on the loose again.
SALT OF THE EARTH Fri 06/12/15 To Thu 06/18/15
(PG13, 110 mins, France) - some subtitles. For 40 years, the photographer Sebastião Salgado has been travelling the continents. He has witnessed some of the major events of our recent history; international conflicts, starvation and exodus. He is now embarking on the discovery of pristine territories, of wild fauna and flora, and of grandiose landscapes as part of a photographic tribute to the planet's beauty. His life and work are revealed to us by his son, Juliano, who went with him during his last travels, and by beloved filmmaker Wim Wenders.
GEMMA BOVERY Fri 06/19/15 To Tue 06/23/15
(R, 100mins, France) - some subtitles. Life begins to imitate art in uncanny ways when earthy British beauty Gemma (Gemma Arterton) and her husband Charles Bovery (Jason Flemyng, X-Men: First Class, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) move to the very same Norman village where Flaubert’s classic novel was written. Director Anne Fontaine's clever adaptation of Posy Simmonds’ graphic novel is at once a cheeky literary mash-up, a sensuous romance, a witty feminist commentary, and a heady celebration of French provincial life.
MERCHANTS OF DOUBT Sat 06/20/15 To Thu 06/25/15
(PG13, 96mins, US) Inspired by the acclaimed book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik Conway. Filmmaker Robert Kenner lifts the curtain on a secretive group of highly charismatic, silver-tongued pundits-for-hire who present themselves in the media as scientific authorities - yet have the contrary aim of spreading maximum confusion about well-studied public threats ranging from toxic chemicals to pharmaceuticals to climate change.
LAMBERT & STAMP Fri 06/26/15 To Thu 07/02/15
(R, 117mins, US) Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, aspiring filmmakers, set out to make a cinema vérité documentary about the mod world of rock and roll, but were sidetracked instead into managing and developing the sonic powerhouse that came to be called THE WHO. Their gorgeously propulsive footage—the rock documentary that was never completed—lays a foundation for a kaleidoscopic study of an era and a rare friendship’s creative bond.
IRIS Fri 06/26/15 To Thu 07/02/15
(PG13, 80mins, US) IRIS pairs legendary 87-year-old documentarian Albert Maysles with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how, even in Iris' dotage, a soaring free spirit continues to inspire.
