$25 via The Lensic, 988-1234, ticketssantafe.org
Martin Scorsese presents this story of the Grateful Dead, the ultimate counterculture band, who emerged from the San Francisco scene with a blend of bluegrass, folk and improvisation. In an age of drug-fueled experimentation, the band cultivated a fan base willing to travel to new realms of experience. Director Amir Bar-Lev (MY KID COULD PAINT THAT) draws from an unbelievable treasure trove of largely unseen materials, including an interview with Jerry Garcia, to create a tapestry of the era’s most unlikely rock heroes. (U.S., 2017, 235m)

Wakefield                                                                                            Starts May 26 
“An unflinching look at conjugal rift … could seriously resonate with middle-aged moviegoers — especially women — starved for smart, personal stories.” –Variety
To most of the world, Howard Wakefield (Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston), a New York City lawyer, disappears one day, without a trace. But he is in hiding, in the attic of his home, spying on his lovely, devoted wife (Jennifer Garner) and ruminating on the meaning of life. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Robin Swicord adapts E.L. Doctorow’s short story into a tour-de-force exploration of suburban malaise and male ineptitude, anchored by a legendary performance by Cranston. (U.S., 2016, XXm)

Masters and Museums: I, Claude Monet                
Perhaps the world’s favorite artist, Monet painted the picture that launched Impressionism and then kept on working. Using more than 2,500 of his letters, and shot on the locations of his most iconic works, Phil Grabsky’s film tells a gripping tale of a man that, behind his sun-dazzled canvases, suffered from feelings of depression, loneliness, even suicide, which alternated with humor and love of life. An Exhibition on Screen title. (U.K., 2017, 90m)
Norman: the Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer            Starts May 19 
Cedar impressively creates a complex and intricately detailed portrait of the web of political, financial, social and religious affiliations that has everything to do with how the world works.” –Hollywood Reporter
Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, a would-be operator incessantly networking and dreaming up financial schemes that never come to fruition. When he meets Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), a charismatic Israeli politician, Norman reaches out with a gift of a very expensive pair of shoes, a gesture that Eshel remembers when he becomes Prime Minister three years later. Joseph Cedar (FOOTNOTE) has crafted a painfully funny look at the schmoozer we all know. With Steve Buscemi, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Hank Azaria. (U.S.-Israel, 2016, 118m, Sony Classics)
Auteurs 2017
The CCA presents a seven-week series, featuring films from cinema’s greatest directors, all screened in best-available format
 
A celebration of the best of cinema’s past, The Auteurs series has become one of Santa Fe’s most popular film events. Past Auteurs series featured near-sold out shows for films by John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock, Federico Fellini, Akira Kurosawa, Jean Cocteau, Errol Morris, Ousmane Sembene, Luchino Visconti, Ingmar Bergman and Jean-Luc Godard.
 
The 2017 program is the most ambitious yet, with 11 programs, a photo exhibit and live music. The program two silent films with live, original scores from the legendary Austin ensemble The Invincible Czars, and continues the famed Marseilles trilogy by Marcel Pagnol, newly restored prints of Mizoguchi’s UGETSU, Wertmuller’s SEVEN BEAUTIES, Wiseman’s TITICUT FOLLIES and Tarkovsky’s STALKER, a photo exhibit celebrating John Cassavetes, with a rare screening of his masterwork LOVE STREAMS, and a rare screening of works by the Russian animator Yuri Norstein.
 
The programs will be introduced by film scholars and artists including Paul Barnes, Jason Silverman, Kirk Ellis and Tim Hunter, with others to be announced.
Auteurs: Marcel Pagnol’s Marseilles Trilogy             Saturday-Monday May 26-29
French writer-director Marcel Pagnol’s famed and timeless Marseilles trilogy—MARIUS (1931), FANNY (1932), and CÉSAR (1936)—follows the star-crossed romance of a barman’s son with the girl who sells shellfish in front of the bar. Marius runs off to sea, unknowingly leaving Fanny pregnant, bereft and in desperate need of a husband. The tight-knit waterfront community surrounding them includes
the bar-owner César (incarnated by the matchless Raimu) and his card-playing buddies, including Panisse, the aging well-to-do ship’s chandler who marries Fanny. Shown in newly restored digital form.
Santa Fe National Organization for Women presents My Choice    
7:30p Wednesday May 24        
Followed by panel discussion!  Free popcorn!
The rate of women who are childless by choice has increased 100% over the past 45 years. This film by Santa Fe’s Barbara Bentree is a film conversation between five women, ranging in age from mid-40s to mid-60s, who made the choice not to have children. Their candid conversation explores the surprising reasons why they made their decision and stimulates deep reflection for women (and men) of childbearing age and beyond. The film provides an important forum for discussing the many questions and consequences of creating a life without children.

Bob Dylan’s Don’t Look Back                                    
“An unforgettable all-access pass … D.A. Pennebaker's landmark 1967 rock doc all but invented the form while presaging the music video.” –Village Voice
 D. A. Pennebaker captures Bob Dylan on-screen as he never would be again during his 1965 tour—his last as an acoustic artist. The future Nobel laureate is surrounded by teen fans, engages in heated philosophical jousts with journalists, and kicks back with fellow musicians Joan Baez, Donovan, and Alan Price. This radically conceived portrait of an American icon distills a seminal moment in time. (U.S., 1967, 96m, Janus Films)
 
Leonard Cohen’s Bird on a Wire       
“Simply one of the most beautiful and moving music documentaries I have ever seen. The behind-the-scenes Leonard snooping is both fascinating and hilarious.” –Telegraph
Famed documentarian Tony Palmer follows the legendary musician/songwriter/poet during his 1972 European concert tour, as he performs his classics—“Suzanne,” “Sisters of Mercy,” “Chelsea Hotel,” “Famous Blue Raincoat,” “So Long, Marianne”—and reveals himself to be the most reluctant of folk-music heroes. Never before released, this is a startling portrait of a visionary of the counterculture era. (U.K., 1972, 103m)
NOW SHOWING & HELD-OVER FILMS
Masters and Museums: Hermitage Revealed       
“Does a good job of showing the massive array of paintings, sculptures, gilded furnishings …  We’re talking Rembrandt, Titian, Rubens, and two Da Vinci Madonnas.” –Georgia Straight
With more than 3 million treasures and more curators than any other museum, the Hermitage is one of the world’s greatest art institutions. In celebration of its 250th anniversary, this thrilling journey traces its history, offering unprecedented access to spectacular artworks and the human stories behind this remarkable museum. (U.K.-Russia, 2014, 83m)
Norman: the Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer            
Cedar impressively creates a complex and intricately detailed portrait of the web of political, financial, social and religious affiliations that has everything to do with how the world works.” –Hollywood Reporter
Norman Oppenheimer (Richard Gere) lives a lonely life in the margins of New York City power and money, a would-be operator incessantly networking and dreaming up financial schemes that never come to fruition. When he meets Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), a charismatic Israeli politician, Norman reaches out with a gift of a very expensive pair of shoes, a gesture that Eshel remembers when he becomes Prime Minister three years later. Joseph Cedar (FOOTNOTE) has crafted a painfully funny look at the schmoozer we all know. With Steve Buscemi, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Hank Azaria. (U.S.-Israel, 2016, 118m, Sony Classics)
Citizen Jane                                                                                         
“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)
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)  
Obit.                                                                                                         Starts June 2
laugh-out-loud funny … exceptionally tight, often hilarious …” –Willamette Week
Every day, editorial obituary writers set out to capture the essence of the lives of the newly deceased. The small team at The New York Times approach their work with journalistic rigor and narrative flair, knowing that what they write will likely become etched into history. Vanessa Gould’s film follows these writers as they ask the same deep questions we ask ourselves: What do we choose to remember? What should never die? (U.S., 2016, 95m)
Like Crazy                                                                                                 Starts June 2    
“A terrific comedy-drama boasting a deliriously loquacious script” –Variety
Beatrice is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she's on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her own mystery. They are both patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic. Paolo Virzì's new film tells the story of the unpredictable and moving friendship that develops between the two women as they flee the mental institution in search of love and happiness in the open-air nuthouse--the world of sane people. (Italy, 2016, 118m)
Masters and Museums: The Artist’s Garden: American Impressionism  
11a Friday June 2-Sunday June 4, 5:30p Monday June 5-Thursday June 8
After taking its lead from French artists including Renoir and Monet, the American Impressionist movement followed its own path for 40 years. Inspired by the blockbuster show at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, this film features works by Cecilia Beaux, William Merritt Chase, Charles C. Curran, Jane Peterson, Philip Leslie Hale, Childe Hassam, Violet Oakley and J. Alden Weir, who contributed to a sumptuous visual language that today serves as a window into a rapidly maturing nation. An Exhibition on Screen title. (U.K., 2017, 90m)
Auteurs: Stalker                     
 1p Saturday-Sunday June 3-4        
Captures something akin to the essence of what man is made of: a tangled knot of memories, fears, fantasies, nightmares, paradoxical impulses, and a yearning for something that’s simultaneously beyond our reach and yet intrinsic to every one of us.” –Slant
Voted one of the top 30 films of all time by the British Film Institute, Andrei Tarkovsky’s mystical, dystopian masterwork follows a guide, a writer and a scientist as they undertake a treacherous journey into a forbidden area known as The Zone, in search of a room that grants wishes. Mysterious, filmed and constructed with the utmost artistry, and filled with indelible scenes, this is poetic cinema at its height. Shown in a new restoration. (U.S.S.R., 1979, 163m)
