NEW THIS WEEK
My Life as a Zucchini                                                                            Starts March 24    
Switzerland’s official entry: Best Foreign Language Oscar
“Nothing short of a miracle!” –Hollywood Reporter
After his mother’s sudden death, Zucchini is befriended by a police officer, Raymond, who accompanies him to his new foster home, filled with other orphans his age. At first he struggles to find his place in this at times strange and hostile environment. But with Raymond’s help and his newfound friends, Zucchini eventually learns to trust and love. An instant landmark of stop-motion animation, nominated for a Golden Globe and winner of numerous festival awards, Claude Barras’s film features voices by Will Forte, Nick Offerman, Ellen Page, and Amy Sedaris. (Switzerland, 2016, 68m, GKids, digital)
Land of Mine                                                                                            Starts March 24  
Best Oscar nominee, Foreign Language Film
“****... harrowing, intelligent, compelling and intensely suspenseful …  a great film, ... a plea for humanity in all of us” –New York Observer
As World War Two comes to an end, a group of German POWs, boys rather than men, are captured by the Danish army and forced to engage in a deadly task: to defuse and clear land mines from the Danish coastline. With little or no training, the boys soon discover that the war is far from over. Inspired by real events, Martin Zandvliet’s award-winning exposes the untold story of one tragic moment in post-war history. (Denmark, 2016, 100m, Sony Pictures Classics)
SFJFF presents: In Between
Introduced by award-winning writer/producer Kirk Ellis
“… engrossing …” -Variety
MaysalounHamoud’s debut film, IN BETWEEN is an absorbing tale of three Palestinian Israeli women, each living a split life in secular Tel Aviv. Their relationships reveal the tension between modernity and the more traditional society from which they come and their struggles to be true to themselves. As a female Palestinian Israeli, Maysaloun infuses a natural authenticity into the characters. IN BETWEEN had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. It took home the award for BEST FILM at the San Sebastian International Film Festival and BEST DEBUT FILM at the Haifa International Film Festival.
NOW SHOWING & HELD-OVER FILMS
My Scientology Movie                                                                           
“**** …  a giddy, Pythonesque jab in the ribs … wickedly tendentious mischief ... gloriously funny.” –Telegraph, London
“I find that the most inexplicable behavior is motivated by very relatable human impulses,” says beloved British documentarian Louis Theroux, who puts the Church of Scientology under his microscope. With reenactments made in collaboration with former members, and the predictable but frightening retribution from the Church, Theroux, in collaboration with producer Simon Chinn (MAN ON WIRE, SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN) turns his fearlessness and sense of humor into a startling expose. (U.K., 2016, 99m, Magnolia Pictures)

Freedom to Marry                                                                                 
“Surprisingly suspenseful and thoroughly moving and inspiring.” –Boston Globe
Eddie Rosenstein’s intimate and epic documentary goes behind-the-scenes to reveal the inner workings and key players of an historic civil rights battle, led by Evan Wolfson, the architect of the movement, civil rights attorney Mary Bonauto. As they approach a climactic battle before the United States Supreme Court, we receive fresh perspective on an insprirational movement's history along the way. (U.S., 2016, 86m)
KEDi                                                                                                    
The Wall Street Journal once suggested the capital of Turkey should be renamed Catstinopole. This sweet, insightful film follows some of the hundreds of thousands of cats who have roamed the metropolis of Istanbul freely for thousands of years, wandering in and out of people’s lives, impacting them in ways only an animal who lives between the worlds of the wild and the tamed can. Cats and their kittens bring joy and purpose to those they choose, giving people an opportunity to reflect on life and their place in it. Ceyda Turan’s first feature is a philosophical investigation, asking us to reconsider our relationship to cats, to nature, to each other. (Turkey, 2016, xxm)
I Am Not Your Negro                                                                             
“A thrilling documentary … One of the best movies you are likely to see this year ... moves across time and space, seamlessly – insistently – sliding from the historical civil rights movement to more recent events.” –The New York Times
In 1979, James Baldwin wrote a letter to his literary agent describing his next project, a revolutionary, personal account of the lives and successive assassinations of three of his close friends: Medgar Evers, Malcolm X & Martin Luther King, Jr. But at the time of his death, Baldwin had finished only 30 pages. Raoul Peck helps Baldwin imagine a completed book in this radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter.  (U.S.-France, 2016, 95m, digital, Magnolia Pictures)
