NEW THIS WEEK
My Entire High School Sinking Into the Sea                                     Starts April 28
“THE MOST ORIGINAL ANIMATED FILM OF THE YEAR!” –Indiewire
This audacious debut from the superstar graphic novelist Dash Shaw (New School) blends disaster cinema, high school comedy and blockbuster satire, using a dream-like mixed media animation style that incorporates drawings, paintings and collage. Dash (Jason Schwartzman) and his best friend Assaf (Reggie Watts) are preparing for another year at Tides High School muckraking on behalf of their widely-distributed but little-read school newspaper, edited by their friend Verti (Maya Rudolph). Their discovery of an administrative cover-up launch them into the center of a disaster, and brings them together with a popular know-it- all (Lena Dunham) and a lunch lady (Susan Sarandon) who is much more than meets the eye. (U.S., 2017 75m, GKIDS)

The Settlers  
April 28-30
“Gripping … has the power to provoke strong reactions …  The real achievement is going beyond the buzzwords of newscasts and talking points to convey a sense of what’s happening on the ground — and to give it a sense of urgency.” –Variety
Shimon Dotan’s emotionally charged, unapologetic documentary traces the history of Israeli settlements in the West Bank and their growth through individual action and, in this telling, the sometimes tacit encouragement of Israeli politicians. Dotan weaves archival footage with current interviews with settlers and historians, telling the story of how a group of fervent outsiders have managed to tip the balance of Middle Eastern politics into an area where reconciliation seems almost impossible to imagine. (Israel, 2016)
The Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival presents
Fanny’s Journey
6:30p Wednesday April 26
Free, preceded by free pizza
“Compelling” –Variety
In 1943 in Vichy France, the 13-year-old Fanny is put in charge of a group of Jewish children who must flee for their lives. Based on the memoirs of Fanny Ben-Ami, this film retells a remarkable journey.  Reservations are required, via  www.SantaFeJFF.org, 505.216.0672, or calling Joy at Temple Beth Shalom at 505-982-1376.
NOW SHOWING & HELD-OVER FILMS
Maurizio Cattelan: Be Right Back                                                     
“A compelling and intimate portrait. Bold, witty....as playful as a Cattelan work itself…” –BBC
An art world upstart, provocative and elusive artist Maurizio Cattelan made his career on playful and subversive works that send up the artistic establishment, until a retrospective at the Guggenheim in 2011 finally solidified his place in the contemporary art canon. Axelrod’s equally playful profile leaves no stone unturned in trying to figure out: who is Maurizio Cattelan? (U.S.-Italy, 2016, 95m, Bond 360)
Donald Cried                                                                                        
“Hilariously unsettling … a psychological thriller stuffed into the mold of a boisterous R-rated comedy” –IndieWire
Kris Avedisian’s darkly funny story starts when former childhood best friends reconnect decades later. Peter (Jesse Wakeman) left his Rhode Island home to reinvent himself; Donald (Avedisian) hasn't grown up one bit. Together, they take an increasingly unhinged ride into their past, in one of the funniest, weirdest buddy movies in memory. (U.S., 2016, 85m)
Frantz                                                                                                    
Winner, Venice Film Festival; 11 nominations, Cesar Awards
“Astonishingly beautiful and inquisitive. it’s impossible to deny the sheer narrative sophistication.” –Indiewire
In the aftermath of World War 1, as the German Anna (the 21-year-old Paula Beer) mourns her fiance, a French stranger appears, placing flowers on his grave. Adrien, a handsome, melancholy man, also is filled with deep grief. Their intensifying friendship becomes the subject of gossip throughout the small German city. Surprising, passionate and timeless (and gorgeous—it won the Best Cinematography Cesar), Francois Ozon’s film explores the power of love and loss. (France, 2016, 114m)
Personal Shopper                                                                                    
Winner, Best Director, Cannes Film Festival
“***** … captivating, bizarre, tense, fervently preposterous and almost unclassifiable … Kristen Stewart’s performance is tremendous.” –Guardian
 Maureen (Kristen Stewart) has a job she hates: seeing to the wardrobe of a media celebrity. She couldn’t find anything better to pay for her stay in Paris. And wait. Wait for a sign from the spirit of her twin brother, who died a few months earlier. Until then, her life will stay on hold. The latest adventure in story and form from the visionary Olivier Assayas (CARLOS, SUMMER HOURS) explores our moment of deep technological, spiritual and emotional unease. (France, 2016, digital)
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)
UPCOMING FILMS (beyond next 10 days)  
Risk                                                                                                     Starts May 5
“Another look at major historical events on an intimate level …  radiates with (CITIZENFOUR’s) same degree of urgency.” –Indiewire
Laura Poitras, the Academy Award-winning director of CITIZENFOUR, turns her camera on WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange. With unparalleled access over five years, Poitras offers an intimate portrait of a cyberpunk underground in an era of ever-increasing surveillance and secrecy. (U.S., 2017, 84m, Neon Releasing) 
Citizen Jane                                                                                         Starts May 5
“Fascinating …  pulses with contemporary resonance .. as a finely woven tapestry that feels as relevant and alive as the place you live.” –Variety
Few shaped our understanding of the modern American city more than Jane Jacobs, the visionary activist and writer who fought to preserve urban communities in the face of destructive development projects. Director Matt Tyranuer (VALENTINO) vividly recals Jacobs’ 1960s showdown with ruthless construction kingpin Robert Moses over his plan to raze lower Manhattan to make way for a highway, a dramatic struggle over the very soul of the neighborhood. It’s a timely tale of the power of engaged citizens. (U.S., 2016, 92m, IFC Films)
Burden                                                                                                    Starts May 12
”Encapsulates Burden's prolific, provocative career and shows why he was one of modern art's most original, daring voices.” –Rolling Stone
While still in his early 20s, Chris Burden had earned himself a place in art history, by having himself shot (Shoot, 1971), locked up (Five Day Locker Piece, 1971), electrocuted, (Doorway to Heaven, 1973), cut (Through the Night Softly, 1973), crucified (Trans-fixed, 1974), and advertised on television (4 TV Ads, 1973–77). But as the 70s progressed, Burden artistically reinvented himself with multitude of assemblages, installations, kinetic and static sculptures and scientific models. Tim Marrinan and Richard Dewey’s film follows him in the studio and mines his incredible archive to tell the story of a groundbreaking artist. (U.S., 2016, 98m,  Magnolia Pictures)
