RBG

The Oscar®-nominated and Emmy®-winning documentary RBG, directed by award-winning filmmakers Betsy West and Julie Cohen, chronicles the inspiring and personal story of Ginsburg’s rise to the nation’s highest court while becoming an unexpected pop culture icon. “From her Supreme Court chambers to her exercise room, what a privilege and a joy it was for us to train our cameras on RBG, and capture the story of this feisty, determined, brilliant woman who used her talents to make our world a better place,” said West and Cohen.

MARLEY

Born into poverty in rural Jamaica, Bob Marley became a prophet for the world’s oppressed, preaching peace, love, and understanding with a universal language – song.

LUCKY GRANDMA

Set in New York City, an ornery, chain-smoking Chinese Grandma goes all in at the casino, landing herself on the wrong side of luck…and in the middle of a Chinatown gang war.
Director Sasie Sealy brings to life a dark comedy about immigrant life, the vulnerabilities of aging and an unexpected friendship. Set in alleyways underground mahjong parlors with a cast of rich-ly drawn characters (including Taiwanese movie star Corey Ha) Lucky Grandma is a love letter to Chinatown and an homage to all the badass elderly women who inhabit it.


DIANA KENNEDY: NOTHING FANCY

Featuring extensive interviews with Diana Kennedy and famed chefs José Andrés, Rick Bayless, Gabriela Cámara and Alice Waters, Diana Kennedy: Nothing Fancy provides an intimate look at the leading expert on Mexican cuisine. The author of nine acclaimed cookbooks and a two-time James Beard Award winner, Diana is called the “Julia Child of Mexico”, but the feisty cook prefers “The Mick Jagger of Mexican Cuisine”.


THE TIMES OF BILL CUNNINGHAM

Told in Bill Cunningham’s own words from a recently unearthed six-hour 1994 interview, the iconic street photographer and fashion historian chronicles his remarkable career, and his democratic view of fashion and society. Narrated by Sarah Jessica Parker, The Times of Bill Cunningham features incredible photographs chosen from over 3 million previously unpublicized images and documents from Cunningham.


JOSE

Queer Lion winner at the Venice Film Festival, José is a gripping, layered and beautifully honest story about one working class young man’s struggle to find himself, and a nuanced and vivid look at being gay in Central America.


THE BOOKSELLERS

Antiquarian booksellers are part scholar, part detective and part businessperson, and their personalities and knowledge are as broad as the material they handle. THE BOOKSELLERS takes viewers inside their small but fascinating world, populated by an assortment of obsessives, intellects, eccentrics and dreamers.


DEERSKIN

In this black comedy of middle-aged masculinity gone awry, Academy Award winner Jean Dujardin (The Artist) is a recent divorcee who becomes obsessed with a vintage fringed deerskin jacket that begins to exert an uncanny hold on him. Set in a sleepy French alpine village, he falls into the guise of an independent filmmaker and befriends a trusting bartender and aspiring editor (Adèle Haenel, Portrait of a Lady on Fire) who becomes his collaborator on a movie that will document a surprising new goal he sets himself.


From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.

Kya’s deeply rooted passion for these southern marshes and the life within them is clear through the deeply atmospheric cinematography by Polly Morgan (LUCY IN THE SKY, LEGION), placing audiences in the center of the action of the novel, from the marshes to the courtrooms. Featuring magnificently stunning direction from Olivia Newman (FIRST MATCH, FBI) with a thrilling script by Lucy Alibar (BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, TROOP ZERO), Daisy Egar-Jones (NORMAL PEOPLE, FRESH) stars as Kya.

Where the Crawdads Sing stars Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) as “Kya Clark,” Taylor John Smith (Sharp Objects) as “Tate Walker,” Harris Dickinson (The King’s Man) as “Chase Andrews,” Michael Hyatt (Snowfall) as “Mabel,” Sterling Macer, Jr. (Double Down) as “Jumpin’,” and David Strathairn (Nomadland) as “Tom Milton.” Olivia Newman (First Match) directs the screenplay by Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) based upon the novel by Delia Owens. The 3000 Pictures film is being produced by Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.

The 94th Academy Awards premiered last night, March 27th, 2022, on ABC, hosted by Wanda Sykes, Amy Schumer, and Regina Hall – the first trio to host the awards since 1987.  

11 time nominee Dune took home 6 awards, followed by CODA, which won 3. Best Picture nominee Drive My Car – based on the short story by Haruki Murakami – took home Best International Feature, the second win for Japan. Belfast, Kenneth Branagh’s directorial debut, marked Branagh’s first Oscar win, after 8 nominations. 

This historic show featured the second deaf man ever to win Best Supporting Actor (Troy Kotsur for CODA), as well as the third win – second in a row – for a woman for Best Director (Jane Campion for The Power of the Dog)! Similarly iconic, West Side Story earned Ariana Debose’s iconic win for portraying Anita – a role that won Rita Moreno the same award 60 years prior, marking her as the first Latina woman to win Best Supporting Actress – in a win that was similarly historic, as Debose is the first openly queer woman of color to win an acting Academy Award. As Debose said in her speech, “To anybody who has ever questioned your identity…. I promise you this, there is indeed a place for us.”

               Inspired by the true love story of Ivan Garcia and Gerardo Zabaleta, director Heidi Ewing and her cast delve behind-the-scenes in a Q&A for 2020 part-documentary, part-fiction film I Carry You With Me. Featuring answers from the cast, the crew, and the subjects of the film, they cover topics including the true story that inspired the film, the importance of representation between the gay love story and the tale of immigration, as well as the technical aspects that influenced the creation of the film. This lovely Q&A – with an even lovelier cast and crew – proves almost as beautiful and inspirational as the film itself.

  I Carry You With Me is a deeply important film for a myriad of reasons, at its core being representation and relatability to all whom may come into contact with it. It reflects upon love – romantic, platonic, and familial – and aspirations, and the ways in which these passions interact. The film focuses on the life and experiences of Ivan Garcia (portrayed by Armando Espitia), a gay man who dreamt of moving from Mexico to New York to become a chef, and the emotional toll it took to decide whether he should stay with boyfriend Gerardo Zabaleta in Mexico or follow his dreams to New York. The cast themselves – including star Armando Espitia – described the importance of the representation of a queer love story not entirely focused on the experience of coming out, nor a story full of pain and torment around being gay, as so many queer films do. On top of this, I Carry You With Me is a positive portrayal of the humanity and willpower of immigrants, and the strength it takes to immigrate to another country, sometimes leaving the ones you love behind to create a better life for yourself and your loved ones. This film has the power and emotional charge to truly change the world for the better.

               Director Heidi Ewing is often known for her documentary work, not her fiction work, like this film. In her work with cinematographer Juan Pablo Ramirez, producers Gabriela Marie and Mynette Louie, and editor Enat Sidi (not present in the Q&A), Ewing was able to transfer her concept of a documentary into a part-documentary, part-fictional feature film. Quoted as realizing that she “was shooting the third act of a movie” within her documentary, Ewing created a fascinating experience into the human brain with this blend of reality and fiction. The team attempted to create a cinematic experience that mimics the way the human brain works, with single moments in modernity triggering the a flashback to a memory, as if we are viewing the story not through a film, but through Garcia’s eyes in real time. This took a lot of time, patience, and practice from the crew,, but the end product was worth every second.

About the film: An epic love story spanning decades is sparked by a chance encounter between two men in provincial Mexico. This Sundance Film Festival Audience Award and NEXT Innovator Award winner is based on a true story, in which ambition and societal pressure propel an aspiring chef to leave his soulmate and make the treacherous journey to New York, where life will never be the same.

               July 22nd, 2021 director, writer, and star of How It Ends Zoe Lister-Jones visited Angelika New York to speak with Elizabeth Plank about what it was like to create the film during the Covid-19 pandemic. She covers topics such as mental health during a pandemic, and the ways in which that can influence creativity over the past nearly two years- explaining the deep impact that this apocalyptic experience can have not only on the creative process, but also self-growth, self-love, and self-acceptance.

How It Ends was created in the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic- often playing a part as the first moments of socialization after lockdown for many of the cast and crew. Creative projects can serve as a way for an artist to maintain some form of control over an aspect of their lives in a time of severe chaos, but also serve as an outlet to generate positive energy. Lister-Jones cites the project – which she saw from beginning to end – as a source of joy and play in a time of high stress and anxiety. The timing of the film is deeply evident in its content and themes, taking place in the moments before the apocalypse, but also handling topics such as coping with grief and the ability to let go. Lister-Jones reflects upon the absurd dichotomy between such catastrophic events happening outside, but inside, especially during the lockdown for many people, we were “wearing sweatpants and watching Netflix”. The absurdity of a calm view over the chaos – the pandemic leading to rest and relaxation within our homes, but fear, paranoia, and anxiety outside.

               Lister-Jones describes how the film came from work with her therapist, specifically that of attempting to speak to your inner child and help yourself grow. Her character exists alongside a younger version of herself, interacting on a deeply meta level, each essentially as the voice in the other’s head. The growth and interaction summons a form of radical self-acceptance that can only come from true internal work – shown externally, in the film. This face-to-face experience with yourself has become a large theme within the pandemic- as Zoe Lister-Jones says, it’s a question of “how we face ourselves when there’s no one else to face.” What can you say when you are alone with your thoughts, alone without the influence of the outside world, alone with your reflection?

               How It Ends is a deeply cathartic experience in personal growth in a time of tragedy, a deeply touching comedy, and a brilliant piece of cinema that will warm your heart and leave you moved.


About the film: In this feel good apocalyptic comedy, freewheeling Liza (Zoe Lister-Jones) scores an invite to one last wild party before the world ends. But making it there won’t be easy, after her car is stolen, and the clock is ticking on her plan to tie up loose ends with friends and family. Accompanied by her younger self (Cailee Spaeny), Liza embarks on a hilarious journey across Los Angeles, running into an eclectic cast of characters.

Kit (Henry Golding, Crazy Rich Asians) returns to Ho Chi Minh City for the first time since he was six years old when his family fled the country in the aftermath of the Vietnam-American war. There he meets Lee, his estranged second cousin, Linh, a young Vietnamese student, and arranges an online date that turns into something more with Lewis (Parker Sawyers, Southside With You), an American clothing designer. Struggling to make sense of himself in a city he’s no longer familiar with, he embarks on a personal journey across the country that opens up the possibility for friendship, love and happiness.

“This fleeting character study leaves a lasting, optimistic impression of love and friendship.”
