DESERT RIDERS Opens Friday April 25th | NR

Theater One 1:00 3:00 5:00 7:00 9:20
Camel racing, often called the Sport of Kings, is very popular in the Middle East. DESERT RIDERS is the harrowing story of some of the thousands of boys, as young as two years old, who have been trafficked from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Mauritania and Sudan to the Gulf States to work as camel jockeys. Sexually and physically abused, these young children were forced to live in horrendous conditions, starved to avoid weight gain, worked long hours even when clearly underage. In 2005, with international pressure brought to bear, help from the Bush Administration and courageous NGOs, many of the children were repatriated only to find themselves strangers in their home countries. As a plea to stop all abuse of children worldwide, seasoned filmmakers Vic Sarin and Noemi Weis reveal a complex history that helps these young men tell their story to the world.

For recent retiree Caroline (Fanny Ardant, 8 WOMEN, CONFIDENTIALLY YOURS), a new life of freedom and opportunity lies before her: time to take care of her children, her husband, and most of all, to finally take care of herself. But while her peers at the local seniors’ club pass the time with ceramics and amateur theater, she finds a new hobby of her own between the sheets with the center’s computer teacher Julien (Laurent Lafitte, LITTLE WHITE LIES), a carefree ladies man decades her junior. The couple set rules for their affair, but Caroline seems to like courting danger, taking her lover to places she knows they might be seen and telling lies to her husband (Patrick Chesnais, THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY) that could easily be checked out. As Caroline finds herself in the midst a second youth – taking a new lover, living new experiences, breaking the rules, not doing what’s expected of her – will her retirement mark the beginning of the end for her marriage, or a new beginning?

Germantown and Martin Luther King High Schools were bitter rivals for over 40 years.

A People Uncounted: The Untold Story of the Roma is a journey into the world of the Roma (commonly referred to as Gypsies)—a people who through the ages have been both romanticized and vilified in popular culture, politics and art, and who have endured centuries of intolerance and persecution.

Visiting 11 countries and interviewing dozens of Roma artists, historians, musicians and Holocaust survivors, this revealing film documents their culturally rich but often difficult lives, taking us back to ancient times and forward to the little-known story of Roma genocide at the hands of Nazis during World War II. As we watch the incredible story of the Roma unfold, both the people and their history come to life through the interplay of their evocative music and poetry, interwoven with true stories told by the survivors of the camps. As intolerance is on the rise in European politics, this remarkable film reminds us that ethnic minorities all too often fall prey to racism and genocide.
