In Ruben Östlund’s (Force Majeure) wickedly funny Palme d’Or winner, social hierarchy is turned upside down, revealing the tawdry relationship between power and beauty. Celebrity model couple, Carl and Yaya are invited on a luxury cruise for the uber-rich, helmed by an unhinged boat captain. What first appeared instagrammable ends catastrophically, leaving the survivors stranded on a desert island and fighting for survival.

A powerful documentary that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the territorial expansionist policies that decimated the young economies of Mexico, Puerto Rico and Cuba, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, Harvest of Empire provides an unflinching look at the origins of the growing Latino presence in the United States. Adapted from the landmark book written by journalist Juan Gonzalez, the film tells the story of an epic human saga that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S., but must become part of our national conversation about immigration.
Advance tickets can be purchased here
. This is the only theater in the area currently screening this documentary, so advance purchase tickets are recommended

Bill Cunningham is obsessively interested in only one thingâ€”the pictures he takes that document the way people dress. â€œWe all get dressed for Bill,â€ saysÂ Vogue
editrix Anna Wintour. For decades, this Schwinn-riding cultural anthropologist has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirÃ©es for theÂ New York Times
Style section in his columns â€œOn the Streetâ€ and â€œEvening Hours.â€ Bill has lived in the same small studio above Carnegie Hall for fifty years, never eats in restaurants and gets around on a worn-out bicycleâ€”his sole means of transportation. The contradiction of his monk-like existence and the extravagance of his photographic subject matter is one aspect of his private life revealed in the movie. Documenting uptown fixtures (Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefellerâ€”who all appear in the film out of their love for Bill), downtown eccentrics and everyone in between, Cunninghamâ€™s enormous body of work is more reliable than any catwalk as an expression of time, place and individual flair. In turn,Â Bill Cunningham New York
is a delicate, funny and often poignant portrait of a dedicated artist whose only wealth is his own humanity and unassuming grace.
