INDIGNATION

 

September 2 – September 8

 

dir. James Schamus, Drama, Rated ‘R’, USA, English, 2016, 110 min.

 

In 1951, Marcus Messner (Logan Lerman), a working class Jewish boy from Newark, New Jersey, travels on scholarship to a small, conservative college in Ohio, thus exempting him from being drafted into the Korean War. But once there, Marcus’s growing infatuation with his beautiful classmate Olivia Hutton (Sarah Gadon), and his clashes with the college’s imposing Dean, Hawes Caudwell (Tracy Letts), put his and his family’s best laid plans to the ultimate test.

 

From the novel by Phillip Roth

TICKLED

 

SEPTEMBER 2 – SEPTEMBER 8

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

dir. David Farmer and Dylan Reeve, Documentary, Rated ‘R’, USA, English, 2016, 92 min.


After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity.


Surprise hit of the Sundance Festival

Jake (Theo Taplitz) is a quiet, sensitive middle schooler with dreams of being an artist. He meets the affably brash Tony (Michael Barbieri) at his grandfather's funeral, and the unlikely pair soon hit it off.

RIVER OF GRASS

 

SEPTEMBER 9 – SEPTEMBER 15

 

dir. Kelly Reichhardt, Drama, Not Rated, USA, English, 1995, 76 min.


Kelly Reichardt’s darkly funny debut feature, brought the writer/director back to the setting of her adolescence, the suburban landscape of southern Florida, where she grew up with her detective father and narcotics agent mother. Shot on 16mm, the story follows the misadventures of disaffected house-wife "Cozy", played by Lisa Bowman, and the aimless layabout "Lee", played by up and comer Larry Fessenden, who also acted as a producer and the film's editor. Described by Reichardt as "a road movie without the road, a love story without the love, and a crime story without the crime," River of Grass introduces viewers to a director already in command of her craft and defining her signature style.


Newly re-mastered version of Florida’s Kelly Reichardt’s debut film.

 

Jean Luc Godard tells us that 'all you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun".

Come see what Kelly Reichardt does with a girl and a gun in her debut movie.

MADE IN VENICE

 

SEPTEMBER 16 – SEPTEMBER 22

 

 

 

dir. Jonathan Penson, Documentary / Action Sports / Skateboarding, Not Rated, USA, English, 2016, 78 min.


MADE IN VENICE takes you on a rippin’, shreddin’ ride with the
skateboarders of Venice, from “raising hell” on the beach in their teens to turning pro in the ‘80s and putting “street skating” on the global map. But their biggest challenge of all wasn’t becoming skateboarding legends; it was about getting what they dreamed of, and really wanted... a skatepark on Venice Beach for the community and the pro skaters of tomorrow.

Frank suffers from a rare but severe form of Tourette Syndrome--his uncontrollable tics and profane outbursts surface at all the wrong times. After a childhood filled with ridicule and cruelty, Frank becomes a loner and hires a caretaker to insulate him from the world. Frank's comfortable but lonely life is suddenly shattered when his caretaker dies, leaving Frank with the caretaker's teenage daughter, Laura, who is about to go on a graduation road trip with her girlfriends. After seeing that Frank is despondent, the nurturing Laura drags Frank along on the road trip with her friends. On their journey, the group meets up with Vinnie, a handsome hitchhiker who invites them to stay in a quaint country farmhouse owned by his Aunt Flossie.

A TOWN CALLED PANIC

SEPTEMBER  24 and SEPTEMBER 25

dir. Stephane Aubier and Vincent Patar, Animation, Not Rated, France / Belgium, French 2010, 75 min.


Panic stars three plastic toys named Cowboy, Indian and Horse who share a rambling house in a rural town that never fails to attract the weirdest events. Cowboy and Indian’s plan to gift Horse with a homemade barbecue backfires when they accidentally buy 50 million bricks. Whoops! This sets off a perilously wacky chain of events as the trio travel to the center of the earth, trek across frozen tundra and discover a parallel underwater universe of pointy-headed (and dishonest!) creatures. Each speedy character is voiced—and animated—as if they are filled with laughing gas. With panic a permanent feature of life in this paper-mâché burg, will Horse and his equine paramour—flame-tressed music teacher Madame Longray—ever find a quiet moment alone? A sort of Gallic Monty Python crossed with Art Clokey on acid, A Town Called Panic is zany, brainy and altogether insane-y!
