16:00 CESAR CHAVEZ (new) @ The Flicks 1 + 2
 
event pic

Directed by Diego Luna, Cesar Chávez chronicles the birth of a modern American movement led by famed civil rights leaderand labor organizer, Cesar Chavez.

Torn between his duties as a husband and father and his commitment to bringing dignity and justice to others, Chavez embraced non-violence as he battled greed and prejudice in his struggle for the rights of farm workers.

His triumphant journey is a remarkable testament to the power of one individual’s ability to change the system.

It should have been made 40 years ago, but this biopic about the Mexican-American leader who spearheaded the fight for farmworkers’ rights couldn’t be more timely. – ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

Michael Peña brings a centered, beckoning beauty to the title character that manages to speak to Chávez nonviolent approach without becoming hagiographic. – DENVER POST

Cesar Chavez is a typical and topical biopic, but the performances, led by a very strong Michael Peña, should leave you satisfied. – WE GOT THIS COVERED

16:00 Law and Disorder in Johannesburg (2008) @ Meta House
 

South Africa has a very high rate of murders, assaults, rapes, and other crimes compared to most countries. Most emigrants from South Africa state that crime was a big factor in their decision to leave. For his docu LAW AND DISORDER IN JOHANNESBURG (2008, 60 min), English journalist Louis Theroux travels to Johannesburg to investigate the increasing amount of crime there. Many citizens are turning to private security companies, with brutal methods, to help protect them and their property. A really chilling look into one of the most violent places on earth.

18:30 SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION (1993) @ The Flicks 1 + 2
 
event pic

Two socialites find their view of the world changed when a young man takes advantage of their preconceptions in this thoughtful comedy-drama.

Flan and Ouisa Kittredge (Donald Sutherland and Stockard Channing) are a married couple who have built highly successful careers as art dealers catering to Manhattan’s upper crust. The Kittredges are entertaining friends one evening when a young black man named Paul (Will Smith) appears at their door.

Paul says that he’s a close friend of their children, with whom he attended boarding school, and he’s just been mugged and needs to get off the street for a moment. Flan and Ouisa invite him in, and they are immediately taken by Paul’s intelligence and charm; he offers to prepare dinner, regales them with stories about his father, Sidney Poitier, and ends up spending the night at their apartment.

However, the next morning Flan and Ouisa discover that they’ve been had; Paul is actually a con artist from the streets who has been pulling the wool over the eyes of many of their friends — and his actions are beginning to have serious consequences.

John Guare adapted the script from his own successful stage play; the supporting cast includes Ian McKellen, Mary Beth Hurt, Bruce Davison, and Heather Graham. It was Will Smith’s debut in a feature film in 1993.

A mystery wrapped inside an enigmatic nation, flawlessly acted and difficult to predict. I’m always impressed when a movie informs about a foreign culture while it entertains, and this one is powerful art in that regard. – TAMPA BAY TIMES

(112 mins, comedy, drama, mystery)

19:00 The Megumi Yokota STory (2006) @ Meta House
 

The inexplicable disappearance of a 13-year-old Japanese girl prompts a 20-year international investigation that eventually leads to North Korea in directors Chris Sheridan and Patty Kim's documentary ABDUCTION - THE MEGUMI YOKOTA STORY (2006, 85 min). It was a typical day in 1977 when adolescent student Megumi Yokota vanished from the Japanese coastline without a trace. Abducted by North Korean spies and spirited away to an unfamiliar land, Yokota would spend two decades on the Korean Peninsula as her parents embarked on a frantic and desperate search for their missing daughter. Award-winning filmmaker Jane Campion (The Piano) produces this remarkable tale of one girl's incredible intercontinental ordeal, and her parent's staunch refusal to give up hope even in their darkest hour.

20:30 SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN (2011) @ The Flicks 1
 
event pic

When Britain’s leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) is approached by a consultant (Emily Blunt) to help realize a sheikh’s (Amr Waked) vision of bringing the sport of fly-fishing to the desert, he immediately thinks the project is both absurd and unachievable.

But when the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a “good will” story, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

Only Scott Thomas, biting off all her sentences like a piranha, rescues “Salmon Fishing” from being a by-the-numbers romantic comedy; you wish the redoubtable Ms. Maxwell had her own movie. - SEATTLE TIMES

… just because something seems absurd doesn’t mean it can’t happen. And just because a film seems to lack surprises doesn’t mean it won’t take an entirely satisfying turn at the end. – TIME MAGAZINE

20:30 THE KILLING FIELDS (1984) @ The Flicks 2
 
event pic

Only screening at The Flicks 2 on Street 136.

Sydney Schanberg is a New York Times journalist covering the civil war in Cambodia. Together with local representative Dith Pran, they cover some of the tragedy and madness of the war, in Phnom Penh.

When the American forces leave, Dith Pran sends his family with them, but stays behind himself to help Schanberg cover the event. As an American, Schanberg won't have any trouble leaving the country, but the situation is different for Pran; he's a local, and the Khmer Rouge are moving in.

The Killing Fields is a suspenseful and exhilarating experience, a journey through an apocalyptic landscape that features one shocking image after another. Watch, and you'll see why the film is so acclaimed and a must-see for everybody in Cambodia; locals as visitors.

21:00 The Best of Weird Al Yankovic (videos) @ Meta House
 
event pic

After 30-plus years of music making — including 13 albums and three Grammy wins — it doesn't feel quite right to refer to American WEIRD AL YANKOVIC as a novelty act. In fact, the polka-loving parodist has become something of a music industry institution.

Yankovic's success comes in part from his effective use of music video to further parody popular culture, the song's original artist, and the original music videos themselves, scene-for-scene in some cases. Tonight, we’ll screen his best music videos, from Michael Jackson’s “Eat it” to “Smells like Nirvana”.
