Directed by Phil Grabsky and narrated by Gillian Anderson. Taking its lead from French artists like Renoir and Monet, the American impressionist movement followed its own path which over a forty-year period reveals as much about America as a nation as it does about its art as a creative power-house. It’s a story closely tied to a love of gardens and a desire to preserve nature in a rapidly urbanizing nation. Traveling to studios, gardens and iconic locations throughout the United States, UK and France, this mesmerizing film is a feast for the eyes. This latest Exhibition on Film presentation features the sell-out exhibition The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism and the Garden Movement, 1887–1920 that began at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and ended at the Florence Griswold Museum, Old Lyme, Connecticut.item39

How much of your own life are you willing to risk? Laura Poitras, Academy Award winning director of CITIZENFOUR, returns with her most personal and intimate film to date. Filmed over six years, RISK is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high stakes election year and its controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle. In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, Risk is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice

In October 1965, the Beatles were faced with an impossible task – produce a new album of original music for a Christmas release. Within one month, the Beatles had emerged with what many consider to be one of their greatest albums – Rubber Soul. They even had time to create a double A-side single, “We Can Work It Out” backed by “Day Tripper”. Both sides of the single, as well as the album, hit number one on the charts. In Deconstructing The Beatles' RUBBER SOUL, composer/producer Scott Freiman walks Beatles fans young and old through the creation of Rubber Soul with rare audio and video from the studio and the stage. Listen as classic tracks like “Norwegian Wood”, “In My Life”, and “Nowhere Man” come to life, and hear the stories behind the songs.

This new film shows the Master of Nonviolence at the end of his life, on the brink of attaining his lifelong goal of freedom from the British but with his heart breaking by the partition of India and the terrible communal violence that is killing untold thousands. Having led masses in nonviolent marches, Gandhi now walks alone for unity and peace. GANDHI'S GIFT is the first major documentary about Gandhi made in the U.S. It is filmed on location in India, South Africa and the UK at all of the important sites in Gandhi's life. Historians and witnesses who actually grew up in the Mahatma's presence tell his story. Featured commentator, Dr. Rajmohan Gandhi, is both an historian and grandson with vivid memories of his grandfather's final days. Interviews such as his are historic in view of the advanced age of the participants. Other expert commentators are Gandhians Dr. Vandana Shiva and James Douglass. The film reveals inspiring details about Gandhi's life that were known only by scholars before now. His timeless story is as timely as ever, introducing audiences to a 21st Century Gandhi with a message of nonviolence and interfaith harmony more important now than even when he walked the Earth.

Jeremiah Tower:
The Last Magnificent

Opens Friday, May 19

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

JEREMIAH TOWER: THE LAST MAGNIFICENT explores the remarkable life of Jeremiah Tower, one of the most controversial and influential figures in the history of American gastronomy. Tower began his career at the renowned Chez Panisse in Berkeley in 1972, becoming a pioneering figure in the emerging California cuisine movement. After leaving Chez Panisse, due in part to a famously contentious relationship with founder Alice Waters, Tower went on to launch his own legendary Stars Restaurant in San Francisco. Stars was an overnight sensation and soon became one of America's top-grossing U.S. restaurants. After several years, Tower mysteriously walked away from Stars and then disappeared from the scene for nearly two decades, only to resurface in the most unlikely of places: New York City's fabled but troubled Tavern on the Green. There, he launched a journey of self-discovery familiar to anyone who has ever imagined themselves to be an artist. Featuring interviews by Mario Batali, Anthony Bourdain, Ruth Reichl and Martha Stewart, this delicious documentary tells the story of the rise and fall of America's first celebrity chef, whose brash personality and culinary genius has made him a living legend.item53

Antonio Pappano and Renato Balsadonna conduct two great casts led by Ermonela Jaho and Ana María Martínez in Puccini’s deeply poignant opera. Giacomo Puccini was entranced by David Belasco’s play Madame Butterfly (based on a popular short story by John Luther Long) when he saw it in London in 1900. He harnessed the talents of librettists Luigi Illica and Giuseppe Giacosa (with whom Puccini had created La bohème and Tosca) to adapt Cio-Cio-San’s tragic tale for the operatic stage. The romantic exoticism of 19th-century European images of Japan – an integral part of Madama Butterfly’s character – inspire Moshe Leiser and Patrice Caurier’s elegant new production for The Royal Opera.item34

Filmed in Japan, France and the UK, the film focuses on Hokusai’s work, life and times in the highly developed urban culture of Edo (modern Tokyo) in the early 1800s. Using extraordinary close-ups and groundbreaking ultra HD 8K video technology, Hokusai’s paintings and prints are examined by world experts including Exhibition Curator Tim Clark and Roger Keyes, whose 90-volume catalogue raisonné is being digitised. Hokusai spent his life celebrating and studying our common humanity as well as exploring the natural and spiritual worlds, using the famous volcano Mount Fuji as a talisman of immortality. He knew much tragedy, was once struck by lightning and lived for years in poverty, but never gave up his constant search for perfection in his art. As Japan emerged from isolation, Hokusai found recognition in the west. The Great Wave and other works changed modern art, inspiring artists from Monet, Van Gogh and Picasso to Hockney and Baselitz. Hokusai is the only artist with an emoji, the father of manga, and still a vital inspiration to artists today.item45

My Entire High School
Sinking into the Sea
Coming Soon

Website | Rotten Tomatoes

From acclaimed graphic novelist Dash Shaw (New School) comes an audacious debut that is equal parts disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, told through a dream-like mixed media animation style that incorporates drawings, paintings and collage. Dash (Jason Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Reggie Watts) are preparing for another year at Tides High School muckraking on behalf of their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, edited by their friend Verti (Maya Rudolph). But just when a blossoming relationship between Assaf and Verti threatens to destroy the boys' friendship, Dash learns of the administration's cover-up that puts all the students in danger. As disaster erupts and the friends race to escape through the roof of the school, they are joined by a popular know-it-all (Lena Dunham) and a lunch lady (Susan Sarandon) who is much more than meets the eye. But even as the film piles on brilliant details like a post-apocalyptic cult formed by jocks, video game homages, and an infectious synth soundtrack, it never loses sight of the characters at the heart of the story. Hailed as "the most original animated film of the year" and "John Hughes for the Adult Swim generation" (Indiewire), the film's everyday concerns of friendships, cliques and young love remind us how the high school experience continues to shape who we become, even in the most unusual of circumstances.
