NO FEAR NO FAVOR

With her hauntingly beautiful images of Zambi’s vast Kafue wilderness, documentarian Mirra Bank captures the tragedy of the African poaching crisis and the hope inspired by grassroots efforts to protect and sustain threatened wildlife. Key local players in this devastating battle between man and nature are featured in uplifting stories where heroism is discovered in unlikely places, including an ex-poacher, turned armed guard, who rescues orphaned elephants. The film’s laser-like focus exposes the root of the extinction crisis – the intimate connection between poverty and poaching. Only radically new reforms will allow people and wildlife to thrive equally.

BEYOND THE BOLEX

When visionary Jewish immigrant Jacques Bolsey invents the Bolex in the 1920’s, he puts the first home movie camera in the hands of everyday folks, fomenting a film revolution that still inspires artists to this day. Nearly a century later, his great-granddaughter Alyssa Bolsey uncovers his long lost archive and journeys to discover the man behind the machine. Once Jacques’ images and philosophical musings saw the light of day, she took 12 years to painstakingly develop this extraordinary tale of his life and legacy, tracing back to one original idea that has magically withstood the test of time.

ALAN MAGEE: art is not a solace

A breathtaking visual journey into the life of painter, illustrator, and maker, Alan Magee, and the influences that have nourished his insatiable passions over five decades. From serene to unsettling, his images and monotypes illuminate the beauty of the natural world, and also veer down darker paths to expose injustice, violence, and threats to the human experience. Art aficionados will delight in tracking this fascinating story that reveals in arresting detail the anatomy of a creative genius who is not afraid to confront reality and inspire hope for future generations.

BUTTER

A lonely, super-sized boy with the nickname of “Butter” decides to end his troubles and make history by announcing that he will over-eat himself to death while live on the internet. As the deadline approaches, he gets his first taste of popularity amidst the morbid encouragement of his high school classmates and experiences a new zest for life as he navigates through relationships with his online fantasy girlfriend, his fair-weather friends who dare him to act out a final bucket list, his ex-football player Dad who turns a blind eye to his son’s musical talents, and his loving but enabling mother (tenderly played by Oscar-winner Mira Sorvino). Adapted from the award-winning Young Adult novel, this darkly comedic yet poignant film serves up a full menu of timely teenage themes such as cyber-bullying, childhood obesity, and teen suicide.

VHYes

Shot entirely on VHS and Beta, this bizarre retro comedy follows 12-year-old Ralph as he accidentally records over his parents’ wedding tape while channel-surfing through his favorite late night tv shows and videotaping his explorations of a haunted Sorority house. With his 1980’s period parodies, filmmaker Jack Henry Robbins recreates public-access tv shows and infomercials to create a nostalgic take on the found-footage genre. Featuring cameo appearances by his parents, Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon.
