FORWARD 13: WAKING UP THE AMERICAN DREAM

Opens Saturday September 20th
Patrick Lovell is an accidental filmmaker/activist who was in the midst of living his American Dream the day the American Dream died. Patrick and his family would find themselves caught in the avalanche of the 2008 Housing Collapse and eventually lose their home to foreclosure. Lovell figured out a way to make a film using his story as the entry point to broader truth about how America's middle class has collapsed, how and why. Lovell and his team shot the film in 2011 and attended 23 Occupy Wall Street encampments covering 7,500 miles ending up in NYC's Zucotti the day the NYPD came down hard. Occupy would become a supporting character to reveal that America is corrupt, defunct and unsustainable, but more importantly, how we can turn the tables on the dark forces that are undermining the American ideal to reboot the American Dream. This film is all things 2014 mid-terms starring Bernie Sanders, Van Jones, James Hansen, Jeremy Rifkin, Mary Boyle, Jeffry Sachs, Rocky Anderson and Music by Michael Franti and a slew of ordinary Americans rising to become extraordinary.

THE SUPREME PRICE

Opens Friday October 3rd
In 1993 Nigeria elected M.K.O. Abiola as president in a historic vote that promised to end years of military dictatorship. Shortly after, the election was annulled and a military coup brought General Sani Abacha into power. M.K.O Abiola was imprisoned and his wife, Kudirat, took over the leadership of the pro-democracy movement. She organized rallies and the longest oil workers strike in Nigerian history, winning international attention for the Nigerian struggle against human rights violations perpetrated by the military dictatorship. Because of this work, she too became a target and was assassinated in 1996.

Director Joanna Lipper elegantly dovetails past and present as she tells this story through the eyes of their eldest daughter, Hafsat Abiola, who was about to graduate from Harvard when her mother was murdered. Her father died in prison two years later. Determined not to let her parents’ ideals die with them, Hafsat has dedicated her adult life to continuing their fight for democracy. Returning to Nigeria after years abroad, she is at the forefront of a progressive movement to empower women and dismantle the patriarchal structure of Nigerian society. A startlingly intimate rendering of the epic and tragic inter - generational Abiola family saga, THE SUPREME PRICE provides a unprecedented look inside of Africa’s most populous nation from the perspective of women, exposing a deep history of political corruption and a culture where a tiny circle of political elites monopolize billions of dollars worth of oil revenue while the vast majority of 165 million Nigerian people remain impoverished.

BOTSO

Opens Friday October 10th
Sometimes a story is so inspiring that it must be told. Such is the astonishing life of Wachtang “Botso” Korisheli—musician, sculptor, and beloved teacher to generations. Born in the former Soviet Republic of Georgia, young Botso was affectionately held by Josef Stalin not long before Stalin’s brutal regime ordered the execution of Botso’s father, popular actor Platon Korisheli. Remarkably, Botso was allowed 20 minutes to see his father one last time. Here, inside a dark prison, Platon communicated to his son what was most important about living your life, words that still inspire him at the age of 91. This powerful moment helped Botso not only endure years of suffering at the hands of both the Soviet army and Nazis during World War II, but also gave him the determination to maintain an infectious passion for humanity, the arts, and life itself. Eventually arriving in America with nothing but hope, Botso furthered his musical training and became a beloved educator of children. He went on to touch generations of students, inspiring some of the world’s premier musical artists, including five-time Grammy Award winner Kent Nagano. Filmed partly in the Republic of Georgia, this feature-length documentary also captures the rich culture of an ancient country that has shaped Botso’s unique way of teaching.

AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL 3

Opens Friday October 10th
The third installment of America the Beautiful explores America’s controversial and shameless sexualization of our youth. Theories and observations merely scratch the surface of a culture centered on the objectification of women. Beneath the glossy, perfect images presented in pop culture there are more desperate stakes at hand. Who is at fault for perpetuating such a harmful culture? Is it corporate greed in advertising? Is it the media that projects these images? Could it even be the parents?

Award-winning director Darryl Roberts along with industry experts Jean Kilbourn, Carolyn Costin, Steven Genarro and Gail Dines tackle the complicated answers to these questions, revealing the treacherous effects this has on not just children, but society as a whole. The assault of images portraying the perfect sexy body is inescapable and inappropriate, contributing to a national physical and mental health crisis. According to the American Psychological Association, the impact of this on girls and women of all ages range from eating disorders to low self-esteem and body image insecurities.

PRIVATE VIOLENCE

Opens Friday October 17th
Private Violence is a feature-length documentary film and audience engagement campaign that explores a simple, but deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in America is her own home. Every day in the US, at least four women are murdered by abusive (and often, ex) partners. The knee-jerk response is to ask: “why doesn’t she just leave?” Private Violence shatters the brutality of this logic. Through the eyes of two survivors – Deanna Walters, a mother who seeks justice for the crimes committed against her at the hands of her estranged husband, and Kit Gruelle, an advocate who seeks justice for all women – we bear witness to the complicated and complex realities of intimate partner violence. Their experiences challenge entrenched and misleading assumptions, providing a lens into a world that is largely invisible; a world we have locked behind closed doors with our silence, our laws, and our lack of understanding. Kit’s work immerses us in the lives of several other women as they attempt to leave their abusers, setting them on a collision course with institutions that continuously and systematically fail them, often blaming victims for the violence they hope to flee. The same society that encourages women to seek true love shows them no mercy when that love turns dangerous. As Deanna transforms from victim to survivor, Private Violence begins to shape powerful, new questions that hold the potential to change our society: “Why does he abuse?” “Why do we turn away?” “How do we begin to build a future without domestic violence?"

THE HADZA: LAST OF THE FIRST

Opens Friday October 31st
The Hadza, East Africa’s last remaining true hunter-gatherers and perhaps the original “indigenous people,” have lived sustainably on their land near the Rift Valley birthplace of humanity for over 50,000 years. They have occupied one place probably longer than any other group on the planet, and their foraging lifestyle characterizes most of human history. Due to modern-day encroachments, the Hadza’s land and way of life are currently under attack -- and a vital tie to our evolutionary roots may be lost forever. In addition to the remarkable Hadza themselves, the film features Jane Goodall, Wangari Maathai and a host of internationally renowned experts in anthropology, evolutionary biology, genetics, linguistics and nutrition who outline how important the Hadza are in understanding our origins. Like other indigenous peoples around the globe, the Hadza now face grave challenges. While the film celebrates their unique history and cultural cohesiveness, it is also a call to action to help establish a protective land corridor for their survival as a living and vibrant community.

The once princely state of Manipur, in volatile northeast India, defies gun violence, drug rafficking, and HIV/AIDS through a surprising passion for America’s national pastime. Manipur entered the Indian Union under protest in 1949, triggering a corrosive separatist conflict. For decades baseball has delivered release from daily struggles and a dream for healing a wounded society. This dream moves toward reality when First Pitch - a band of baseball-loving New Yorkers - and two Major League Baseball Envoy coaches join Manipuri men, women and children to “Play Ball.” With gifted women and girls among the best players, as well as leaders of peace and justice initiatives, this Manipuri story brings us to the heart of the Great American Game, or as Babe Ruth called it, “the only real game in the world.”

NIGHT WILL FALL

Opens Friday December 5th
In the spring of 1945, Allied forces liberating Europe found evidence of atrocities which have tortured the world’s conscience ever since. As the troops entered the German concentration camps, they made a systematic film record of what they saw. Work began on a documentary to show the horror they witnessed to the German population. Sidney Bernstein, chief of the Psychological Warfare Film Section of SHAEF commissioned the film. Those involved in the production included Alfred Hitchcock and renowned editor Stewart McAllister; they produced perhaps the most remarkable testament of the 20th Century. “No German can say he didn’t know” insists the commentary, co-written by Richard Crossman, the future cabinet minister. These sentiments were judged by the British Government to be unsuitable to the bridge-building mood towards Germany. The film was never shown. 40 years later an American researcher found a rusty can marked “F3080” in the vaults of London’s Imperial War Museum. It was in very poor condition and the last roll was missing, but in 1985 a scratched and blurry copy was shown on PBS in America. Now after three years of work by Dr Toby Haggith of the IWM, the entire film has been fully restored and piece by piece, frame by frame, the lost last reel has been put together from the original shot lists. For the first time in history the completed “F3080” is ready to be shown.
