With little space in the western system for Dujuan's language and culture his grandmother Carol is fighting a loving battle to give him a strong Arrernte education alongside his western education lest he become another statistic in juvenile detention or the welfare system. We walk with him as he grapples this educational schism and, witnessing as he somehow finds a space to also dream and imagine.

SOMETIMES ALWAYS NEVER

A father-son drama that reveals the small pleasures of ordinary days, SOMETIMES ALWAYS NEVER is a breezy, whimsical film with a generous dose of gentle, British humor.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT BLUE FOX ENTERTAINMENT!

UK. 2020. Directed by Carl Hunter. (91 mins.) Rated PG-13. in English

As the film opens, Alan (Bill Nighy), a dapper, impish boomer, and his younger son, Peter, a reserved sort who tends to be embarrassed by his father’s shenanigans, are on their way to the morgue. A body has turned up, and it may belong to Alan's oldest boy who, one evening years ago, stepped out for a walk and never came back. Director Carl Hunter’s film takes grief, mystery and messy family relations and turns them into cinematic gold. Nighy is superb as usual – a master of comic understatement, he imbues his character with a poise that vainly masks a broken heart and SOMETIMES ALWAYS NEVER is laced with a good old-fashioned British wit that gives it a zany, whimsical feel.

THE WILD

Actively fighting to keep Pebble Mine from destroying the last fully-intact wild salmon system on earth, THE WILD explores how the fate of the last, best place for wild bears and the wild salmon they need to survive, hangs in the balance.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT AREA 23A!

United States. 2020. Directed by Mark Titus. (65 mins.) Not Rated. in English

An urgent threat emerges to spur filmmaker Mark Titus (THE BREACH) back to the Alaskan wilderness, where the people of Bristol Bay and the world's largest wild salmon runs face devastation if a massive copper mine is constructed. By suddenly dismantling safeguards the EPA had enacted to protect the salmon, the water and the people of Bristol Bay, the current political regime in the United States has unilaterally revived a mining corporation's relentless pursuit of receiving a permit in 2020 to build North America's largest open-pit copper mine directly in the headwaters of the most prodigious wild sockeye salmon run in the world. A race against time, THE WILD illustrates exactly how the survival of a keystone species that feeds 137 different creatures — including us — is in imminent danger.

AVIVA

Sexy and daring, AVIVA is a surreal, experimental odyssey exploring gender and romance through dance.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT OUTSIDER PICTURES!

United States/France. 2020. Directed by Boaz Yakin. (116 mins.) Not Rated. in English

AVIVA is a uniquely sexy dancing-in-the-streets impressionistic take on a movie romance, set in a New York world of gender-fluid bodies. Director Boaz Yakin's dreamy film tells a story that is timeless, universal and yet up-to-the-moment. The character of Aviva, played by both Zina Zinchenko and at times by Or Schraiber, is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with Eden, played by both Tyler Phillips and at times Bobbie Jene Smith, a New Yorker. After a long courtship they meet in person and fall in love, settling into an intimate relationship laced with conflicts. Incorporating exuberant dance sequences and featuring a pair of principal characters played by four different actors daringly and fluidly expressing both masculine and feminine sides, AVIVA captures a restless and changing today where who we are as women and men, and how we navigate the world, is up for grabs.

FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO

Full of both hope and heartbreak, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO presents a complex give and take between family relationships and faith.

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT FIRST RUN FEATURES!

United States. 2020. Directed by Daniel G. Karslake. (91 mins.) Not Rated. in English

From the director/producer of FOR THE BIBLE TELLS ME SO comes a new film that continues the conversation about the impact of religious belief on the lives of the LGBTQ+ community. It challenges the far-right's use of the Bible and the U.S. Constitution to fight against equality for LGBTQ+ citizens and takes on the horrors of reparative therapy. There's been a great deal of progress towards fairness, but since marriage equality became the law of the land in 2015, the backlash from the right has been swift and severe. By telling the stories of families caught up in this conflict and informed by the wisdom of a number of religious and constitutional thinkers, FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO shines a light on the way forward through love, reconciliation and acceptance.

Germany. 1924. Directed by Leontine Sagan, Carl Froehlich. (93 mins.) Not Rated. in German with English subtitles

MICHAEL (1924)

Danish film master Carl Theodor Dreyer's homoerotic classic is a mature and visually elegant period romance decades ahead of its time. MICHAEL takes its place alongside Dreyer's better known masterpieces as an unusually sensitive and decorous work of art and is one of the earliest and most compassionate overtly gay-themed films in movie history.

Germany. 1933. Directed by Reinhold Schunzel. (84 mins.) Not Rated. in German with English subtitles

VICTOR AND VICTORIA (1933)
Produced in the final days of the Weimar Republic, this dazzling, gender-bending musical romance about a female singer posing as a man performing in drag received limited exposure in the United States, and is today best known by Blake Edwards’s 1982 remake and the 1995 Broadway production. Viewers will be delighted to discover that the original is every bit as charming and outrageous, reminiscent of the sly sex comedies of Ernst Lubitsch and Billy Wilder.

Simmering with suspense, SHIRLEY is a gorgeously entrancing, perversely charming and bewitching allegory!

FROM OUR FRIENDS AT NEON!

The middle-aged couple, fiery intellectual hosts with quicksilver loyalties prone to ruthless sparring barbs and copious afternoon cocktails, begins to toy mercilessly with the naïve young couple at their door who are tender prey for a brilliant author whose only allegiance is to her work. SHIRLEY is a fantastical concoction of fact and magical realism.
