UK. 2021. Directed by Ben Sharrock. (103 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD] in English and in Arabic with English subtitles

Recently nominated for two BAFTA® awards for Best British Film and Best Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer, LIMBO is a wry and poignant observation of the refugee experience, set on a fictional remote Scottish island where a group of new arrivals await the results of their asylum claims. It centers on Omar, a young Syrian musician who is burdened by his grandfather's oud, which he has carried all the way from his homeland. Reflecting the complexity of the movement of people across borders has been a long-held passion for director and writer Ben Sharrock, who spent time working for an NGO in refugee camps in southern Algeria and living in Damascus in 2009 shortly before the outbreak of the Syrian civil war. There, he formed a network of friends whose personal stories inspired the film.



The Human Factor

UK/Israel. 2020. Directed by Dror Moreh. (108 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD] in English

With unprecedented access to the foremost American negotiators, THE HUMAN FACTOR is the behind-the-scenes story from the last 25 years, of how the United States came within reach of pulling off the impossible -- securing peace between Israel and its neighbors. Today, the need to learn from past mistakes couldn't be more urgent.



Together Together

United States. 2021. Directed by Nikole Beckwith. (90 mins.) Rated R. [CC,AD] in English

A triumph of humanity and hilarity from director Nikole Beckwith, this funny, comforting and straightforward story surrounding surrogacy is ultimately a reminder of the importance of human connection. When young loner Anna (Patti Harrison is a revelation) is hired as the gestational surrogate for Matt (Ed Helms in his best role to date), a single man in his 40s who wants a child, the two strangers come to realize this unexpected relationship will quickly challenge their perceptions of boundaries and the many peculiar particulars of love. TOGETHER TOGETHER is light and witty, packed with laughs, touching moments and two stellar lead performances.



The Father

UK. 2020. Directed by Florian Zeller. (97 mins.) Rated PG-13. [CC,AD] in English

Anthony (Academy Award Winner, Anthony Hopkins) is 80, mischievous, living defiantly alone and rejecting the caregivers that his daughter, Anne (Academy Award and Golden Globe Winner, Olivia Colman), encouragingly introduces. Yet help is also becoming a necessity for Anne; she can't make daily visits anymore and Anthony's grip on reality is unraveling. THE FATHER warmly embraces real life, through loving reflection upon the vibrant human condition; heart-breaking and uncompromisingly poignant – a movie that nestles in the truth of our own lives.


in our virtual screening room until Thursday, August 27th
