    The commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, and his wife Hedwig, strive to build a dream life for their family in a house and garden next to the camp. Dispassionately examining the ordinary existence of people complicit in horrific crimes, the new film by Jonathan Glazer is a breath-stopping, hauntingly original and extraordinarily powerful look at the mundanity behind an unforgivable brutality. A horror story about the past, and a cautionary tale for the present.

    In a bustling Mexican household, seven-year-old Sol is swept up in a whirlwind of preparations for the birthday party for her father, Tona, led by her mother, aunts and other relatives. As the day goes on, building to an event both anticipated and dreaded, Sol begins to understand the gravity of the celebration this year and watches as her family does the same. This poignant and emotionally expansive film from Lila Avilés (The Chambermaid) cements her skill at directing dynamic, ensemble performances in her stunning sophomore effort. TÓTEM is a film of unexpected beauty, exploring the quandaries of a family navigating matters of love, heartbreak, class, innocence, and, perhaps most prominently, mortality, that becomes a heartfelt celebration of life.

Mateo Garrone

  • Wolof with English subtitles
  • March 8 - 10

    Nominated for BEST INTERNATIONAL FILM at the 2024 Academy Awards

    In this acclaimed film, writer-director Mateo Garrone (Gomorrah) presents a view of the immigration experience while unfurling an epic, cinematographically magnificent odyssey from West Africa to Italy. The story is told through the mind’s eye and experiences of two Senegalese teenagers living in Dakar who yearn for a brighter future in Europe. Yet between their dreams and reality lies a treacherous journey through a labyrinth of checkpoints, the scorched Saharan desert, a fetid North African prison and the vast waters of the Mediterranean where thousands have died packed inside vessels barely fit for passage. IO CAPITANO immerses us in the skin of those who seek a better future, building on a docudrama realism while also reaching toward the mythological. An exhilarating, captivating and genuinely heartfelt emotional journey brimming with warmth and tenderness.

    Friday March 8 --- 4:15pm and 7pm
