Watermark

Canada | 2013 | Jennifer Baichwal, Edward Burtynsky

The new film from filmmaker Jennifer Baichwal and photographer Edward Burtynsky, who made the extraordinary 2006 documentary Manufactured Landscapes, should be of particular interest to those living near the Great Lakes. Watermark finds Baichwal and Burtynsky traversing the globe to document humanity’s relationship with water: how we are drawn to it, what we learn from it, how we use it, and the consequences of that use. “Filled with images both beautiful and wrenching.” –Village Voice....

Jodorowsky's Dune

France, United States | 2013 | Frank Pavich

After directing the midnight/cult movie classics El Topo and The Holy Mountain, Chilean-French auteur Alejandro Jodorowsky turned his attention to a grand, multi-million-dollar film version of Frank Herbert's epic sci-fi novel Dune. With a cast consisting of Orson Welles, Salvador Dali, Mick Jagger, David Carradine, and others, art work by H.R. Giger and French comic book artist Moebius, special effects by Dan O'Bannon, and music by Pink Floyd, this was going to be a movie...

The Dance of Reality

Chile, France | 2013 | Alejandro Jodorowsky

The first feature in 23 years from the director of the cult classics El Topo, The Holy Mountain, and Santa Sangre (see 7/17 at 6:00) is a triumph! The NY Times calls it "something very close to a masterpiece," and The Village Voice says it “may be Alejandro Jodorowsky's best film." The movie finds the octogenarian director, a self-proclaimed "psychomagician," returning to the coastal Chile of his childhood to tell a singularly strange tale of...

Persistence of Vision

Canada, United Kingdom, United States | 2012 | Kevin Schreck

This account of what has been called “the greatest animated film never made” focuses on the three-decade effort of Richard Williams (Oscar-winning animation director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?) to realize his dream project, The Thief and the Cobbler. This epic inspired by the Arabian Nights was ultimately taken out of Williams’ hands while still unfinished, and released in various bastardized versions around the world.
