Saturday, 8/3

1:00 pm – Echo In the Canyon

A look at the roots of the historic 1960s music scene in LA’s Laurel Canyon, featuring the recollections and music of such iconic groups as The Byrds, Beach Boys, Buffalo Springfield and The Mamas and the Papas.

“A richly evocative and star-studded overview…”

Joe Leydon, Variety

3:00 pm – The White Crow
(Please Note: 3:00 pm is the correct time for the White Crow. The NY Times erroneously reported it as showing at 5:45 pm. Our sincere apologies).

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

5:45 pm – Nureyev
(Please know that 5:45 pm is the correct time for Nureyev. The NY Times erroneously reported it as showing at 3:00 pm. Our sincere apologies).

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

8:15 pm – Booksmart

On the eve of their high school graduation,  two best friends -and academic superstars- try to compete with their peers and cram four years of fun into one night.   

2019 SXSW Film Festival / Austin TX 

“Olivia Wilde and the screenwriters don’t so much reinvent the formula as refresh it, infusing some familiar situations with an exuberant, matter-of-factly feminist sensibility.”

A. O. Scott, NY Times, NY Times

Sunday 8/4

1:00 pm – Maiden

The story of Tracy Edwards, 24-year-old cook on charter boats,  who in 1989 became the skipper of the first ever all-female crew to enter the Whitbread Round the World sailing race.

“Timely and intensely relevant story about bold women breaking down barriers…..Maiden unspools a heart-pounding race around the world…”

Kate Erbland, Indiewire

3:00 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

5:15 pm – Late Night

A late night TV talk show host (Emma Thompson) suspecting she may soon lose her long-running hit, shakes up her writing staff.   The superb supporting cast includes screenwriter Mindy Kaling, John Lithgow, Hugh Dancy and Amy Ryan.  

“…adroitly works around Mindy Kaling’s stand-and-deliver acting and gives Emma Thompson the room she needs to turn a cliche into a striking character.”

Manohla Dargis, NY Times

7:30 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…”
