Saturday, 7/20

1:00 pm – Apollo 11

An intimate look at the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing mission and its crew, commander Neil Armstrong and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, galvanized by remarkable and perfectly preserved big screen film footage.

“Although we know how the mission turns out, Apollo 11 generates and maintains suspense. And it rekindles a crazy sense of wonder.”

Glenn Kenny, NY Times (Critic’s Pick)

3:00 pm – Nureyev

Rudolf Nureyev’s extraordinary life, chronicled in Ralph Fiennes’ recent feature (also playing here this weekend!) is the subject of this striking documentary, highlighting his unlikely yet legendary partnership with Margot Fonteyn and meteoric rise to a global cultural phenomenon.

“Presents a great deal of dance footage that has never been seen before, and it’s a thrill to behold; nothing tells Nureyev’s story half as well as simply staring at him in his prime…”

Owen Gleiberman, Variety

5:30 pm – The White Crow

The story of Rudolph Nureyev’s 1961 defection to the West compellingly fashioned by Ralph Fiennes, who both directs and co-stars as Alexander Pushkin. Screenplay by playwright David Hare. 

“As a dance film – another genre that all too often disappoints – The White Crow gets many things right.”

Imogen Sara Smith, Film Comment

Program includes a pre- and post-film Q&A led by the noted film historian
Max Alvarez.

8:15 pm – The Last Black Man in San Francisco

A young man searches for a home in the changing city that seems to have left him behind.

“An indelibly beautiful story of love, family and loss in America…”

Manohla Dargis, NY Times

Sunday 7/21

1:00 pm – The Biggest Little Farm

Documentary filmmaker John Chester and his wife Molly struggle to develop a sustainable farm on 200 acres outside of Los Angeles.

“May rid you of your fantasies of farm life, but it may also revive your wonder at the weird but ultimately awe-inspiring ways in which humans can help nature do its work.”

Glenn Kenny, NY Times

3:00 pm – Nureyev

Rudolf Nureyev’s extraordinary life, chronicled in Ralph Fiennes’ recent feature (also playing here this weekend!) is the subject of this striking documentary, highlighting his unlikely yet legendary partnership with Margot Fonteyn and meteoric rise to a global cultural phenomenon.
