BEYOND THE VISIBLE

 Hilma af Klint was an abstract artist before the term existed, a visionary, trailblazing figure who, inspired by spiritualism, modern science, and the riches of the natural world around her, began in 1906 to reel out a series of huge, colorful, sensual, strange works without precedent in painting.

SORRY WE MISSED YOU

The British working class is the empathetic subject of Ken Loach’s Sorry We Missed You, a wrenching, intimate family drama that exposes the dark side of the so-called “gig economy”. Ricky, a former laborer, and his home-attendant wife Abby are desperate to get out of their financial distress. When an opportunity comes up for Ricky to work as his own boss as a delivery driver, they sell their only asset, Abby’s car, to trade it in for a shiny new white van and the dream that Ricky can work his way up to someday owning his own delivery franchise.

TOMMASU

a film by Abel Ferrara

Nationally simulcast live Q&A 

with Willem Dafoe and Abel Ferrara

Abel Ferrara's first dramatic feature since 2014's Pasolini reteams the filmmaker and his frequent lead Willem Dafoe, who delivers a career-best performance as the title character, an older American expat living in Rome with his young wife and their daughter. Disoriented by his past misgivings and subsequent, unexpected blows to his self-esteem, Tommaso wades through this late chapter of his life with an increasingly impaired grasp on reality as he prepares for his next film. Tommaso is easily Ferrara and Dafoe's most personal and engrossing collaboration to date, a delicately surrealistic work of autofiction marked by the keen sensitivity of two consummate artists. - Film at Lincoln Center  

"A gripping look at the process of escaping to a better life, only to find that the old one follows along at every turn... Manages to feel rough and risky while somehow sensitive at the same time, like the best of them." - Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"Willem Dafoe is one of our greatest actors... Tommaso feels alive." - Owen Gleiberman, Variety

HELMUT NEWTON:

THE BAD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

 Grace Jones, Isabella Rossellini, Anna Wintour, Charlotte Rampling, Marianne Faithfull,  Claudia Schiffer.

The wildly entertaining new documentary 

on the legendary and controversial photographer,  on the occasion of his centennial.   Inspired by his roots in Berlin, German photographer Helmut Newton rose to a cult status that exists today, even after his tragic death in a Los Angeles car crash in 2006. He bounced around from Singapore to Australia to Paris to Los Angeles, but Weimer Germany would become the visual hallmark and signature of his work -- the past would continue to haunt each and every image.

THE WOMAN WHO LOVES GIRAFFES

When she returned home a year later, the insurmountable barriers she faced as a female scientist proved hard to overcome.
