Under the Radar

Under the Radar: 70 Years of Polish Animation  —  LINK

For filmmakers in Poland, animation has been a creative means of liberation, with films that could go under the radar—and sometimes over the top—in this unique collection of shorts from the Communist era to the present. The screening features live animation by Poland’s most treasured animator, Mariusz Wilczynski, accompanied by live music from Trance Mission.

Saturday, Oct. 7th at 8:45 PM, Smith Rafael Film Center, San Rafael


BPM (Beats Per Minute)

BPM (Beats Per Minute)  —  LINK

A vibrant cinematic fresco set in 1989, Robin Campillo‘s unforgettable drama, BPM (Beats Per Minute), depicts the dynamics and endeavors of the Paris chapter of ACT UP, presenting righteous protests and redemptive nights at the disco alongside the heartrending personal moments generated by an epidemic laying waste to men and women in the prime of life. In French with English subtitles.

Sunday, Oct. 8th at 8:15 PM, Cinearts Sequoia, Mill Valley

Andre: The Voice of Wine

Andre: The Voice of Wine  —  LINK

He was Russian – an aristocrat who escaped the Communist Revolution and death as a solider fighting the Bolsheviks in Crimea – and he was the man who taught Napa Valley, and America, how to make wine. Director Mark Tchelistcheff, Andre’s grandnephew, crafts a cinematic portrait, narrated by Ralph Fiennes, that is very much like the man himself: at once dramatic, poetic, humorous, and inspiring. Director Mark Tchelistcheff in attendance.

Monday, Oct. 9th at 6:45 PM, Cinearts Sequoia, Mill Valley


Worst Case, We Get Married (Et au pire, on se mariera)

Worst Case, We Get Married (Et au pire, on se mariera)  —  LINK

Montreal’s gritty Central-South neighborhood doesn’t offer much for teenage Aïcha until she meets dreamy Baz, a handsome neighbor twice her age. Worst Case, We Get Married (Et au pire, on se mariera), Léa Pool’s latest film featuring powerful performances from Karine Vanasse and Sophie Nélisse, explores obsession, truth, and fantasy, as it unpacks an all-consuming case of love at first sight. Lead actress Sophie Nelisse in attendance. In French with English subtitles.

Tuesday, Oct. 10th at 3:30 PM, Smith Rafael Film Center, San Rafael

Life and Nothing More

Life and Nothing More  —  LINK

Director Antonio Méndez Esparza (Aquí y allá, MVFF 2012) chronicles the life of a Florida single mother as she navigates changes in her life while trying to get her teenage son back on the right track after a brush with the law. Documentary-style realism brings into focus a moving snapshot of race, class, and family in contemporary America. Cinematography and sound design are outstanding in this drama that draws welcome comparisons to this year’s Oscar®-winning Best Picture Moonlight. Director Antonio Méndez Esparza in attendance.
