Saturday, 4/27

1:30 pm – Gloria Bell

A free-spirited divorcee (Julianne Moore) spends her nights on the dance floor, joyfully letting loose at clubs around Los Angeles. She soon finds herself thrust into an unexpected new romance, filled with the joys of budding love and the complications of dating.

“The Chilean writer-director Sebastián Lelio teams up with a
transcendently perfect Julianne Moore for Gloria Bell, a redo of his
also wonderful movie Gloria.”

Manohla Dargis, NY Times

3:45 pm – The World Before Your Feet

For over six years – for reasons he can’t explain – Matt Green has been walking every block of every NYC street: a journey of more than 8000 miles.
This film recounts his unexpected journey of discovery, humanity and wonder that ensues.

“New York, New York, it’s a wonderful town. This movie proves it like none other.”

Rex Reed, NY Observer

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jeremy Workman and the film’s subject Matt Green.

6:30 pm – Faces Places

Director Agnès Varda and photographer and muralist JR journey through rural France and form an unlikely friendship.

“Sheer perfection – that’s the phrase that springs to mind when describing the humanist miracle that is Faces Places, the year’s best and most beguiling documentary.”

Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Q&A to follow with Larry Kardish (a film expert who was formerly the film curator for MoMA and who knew Agnes Varda) and Toby Talbot (close friend of Agnes Varda)

Q&A to be followed by a dessert, wine and cheese event.
Tickets for this event are $30.
