Some encore screenings of BIRDS OF PASSAGE coming up at The Miniplex. Tickets/showtimes @ https://miniplex.ticketleap.com

🔥 LAST CHANCE screenings this week: 4/1, 4/3, 4/5, 4/6, 4/8, 4/10! Shortlisted for a 2019 Best Foreign Film Oscar (the New Yorker calls it "by far the best of the lot"), this visually dazzling Colombian epic MUST be seen on the big screen! Directors Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego are also the team behind Oscar nominee (and one of our personal favorites that we've shown here) 'EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT.' Their new film is centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history, the birth of the drug trade in the 1970s. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture’s values, Rapayet meets young American Peace Corps volunteers who are trying in vain to buy weed, and he enters the trafficking business despite the tribe matriarch’s disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, this is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change.

From the Oscar-nominated team behind the genre-defying Embrace of the Serpent, comes an equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period in recent Colombian history. Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture's values, Rapayet (José Acosta) enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite his tribe's matriarch Ursula's (Carmiña Martínez) disapproval. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught up in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, Birds of Passage is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change.

"Birds of Passage is an enthralling, powerful statement and lamentation on the drugs trade’s inevitable encroachment upon on indigenous peoples and how gangsters casually destroyed them." - CineVue.

"Part ethnographic documentary, part The Godfather, a knockout." - Vulture.

"Epic and all-out mesmerizing, makes you rethink the notions behind why we watch crime flicks. It’s both foreign and familiar." - Rolling Stone.

"A Drug War Film About Human Impact On The Wayúu In Colombia" - NPR

"An Epic Narco Tale That Will Open Your Eyes" - The New York Times

The origins of the Colombian drug trade, as seen through eyes of an indigenous Wayuu family that becomes involved in the booming business of selling marijuana to American youth in the 1970s. When greed, passion and honor collide, a fratricidal war breaks out and puts their lives, culture and ancestral traditions at stake.

The Iconic Aesthetic of Jean-Luc Godard

JLG is among of the last of his kind, a director's director, who's works have undeniably changed the course of cinema... and then kept changing, to the detriment of his own career. His new film THE IMAGE BOOK is playing this week only- and it will definitely go over your head.

JLG arranges images like an essay, audio cutting in and out in spurts of pure liberation- his familiarity with film history is towering and irreplaceable. The focus here is War. A joyfully pessimistic inquiry, perhaps only fully decipherable to the author himself. Uncompromising. Ends Thurdsay.

I know what you might be thinking…an eco-terrorism…comedy? Yes, that is what I said and believe it or not, it works. Woman At War features Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir as Halla, the titular “woman.” She’s in her late 40’s and at the outset of the movie we see her out amid some beautiful mountain terrain, shooting an arrow into the sky. It doesn’t take long to discover she is doing this to disarm the power lines connected to a newly constructed aluminum plant near her home. She is (obviously) a passionate environmentalist that strongly believes in her heart that her actions are saving the planet and her direct surroundings from climate-change disaster. - Film Threat
